Aspo Plc upgrades its financial guidance for full-year 2020 due to the November results and revised outlook of its businesses for the rest of the year.
Aspo’s operating profit will be approximately EUR 18–20 (EUR 21.1) million in 2020.
Previous guidance (issued October 29, 2020)
Aspo’s operating profit will be EUR 14–16 (21.1) million in 2020.
