Cavotec sets new accelerated target for profitability
- New target of an annual adjusted EBIT margin of more than 10% within two years and more than 12% within five years
- Remaining financial targets unchanged
Mikael Norin, CEO, says: “The transformation we started in the fall of 2017 is now finalized. We have completed a thorough reorganisation and restructuring of our business, a strengthening of the management team, a rights issue and we have launched a new strategy. This, combined with our strong financial performance in 2019 means that we have met and exceeded our 7% annual adjusted EBIT margin target earlier than expected. We therefore today announce a new accelerated financial target.”
The new financial target for the EBIT margin for the Group, which has been adopted by the Board of Directors of Cavotec SA is:
EBIT Margin – Cavotec’s target is to reach an annual adjusted EBIT margin of more than 10% within two years and more than 12% within five years.
The remaining financial targets are unchanged:
Sales Growth – Cavotec’s target is to achieve an annual organic revenue growth of at least 5% from 2020, in addition to possible acquisitions.
Dividends – Cavotec’s target is to distribute dividends of approximately 30-50% of net profits over a business cycle. Any pay-out decision will be based on the Company’s financial position, investment needs, acquisitions and liquidity position.
