Profit warning: Aspo lowers its guidance for 2019

Based on the estimated results of Q4 2019, Aspo Plc has decided to lower its guidance for full year 2019.

Main reasons for lowering the guidance are significantly lower than estimated transportation volumes in the steel industry impacting the shipping business, and a considerable decline in demand among industrial customers in Telko’s western markets.   

New guidance

Aspo's operating profit in 2019 will be higher than in 2018 (EUR 20.6 million). 

Previous guidance

Aspo's operating profit will be EUR 24–30 (20.6) million in 2019

Aspo will publish its financial statement release for 2019 on February 13, 2020.
