Aspo Capital Markets Day 2021: Aspo publishes its focused strategy and new financial targets – aims for growth and higher profitability

Aspo holds a Capital Markets Day today, December 1, 2021, starting at 1 p.m. in Helsinki. The group's new strategy, updated long-term financial targets and, in more detail, the current state of Aspo's business operations and prospects will be presented. Aspo will also publish its new sustainability targets for the group and its businesses.

Our new long-term financial targets are:

  • Operating profit of 8 per cent (previously 6%)
  • Net sales growth 5–10% per year (new target)
  • Return on equity over 20%
  • Long-term gearing below 130%
"Aspo creates value by owning and developing businesses in the long term. The improved operating profit margin target is supported by Aspo's business development measures and changes in the business portfolio. In addition to organic growth, the aimed growth is driven by investments in acquisitions and a strategic shift towards a compounder profile. Mergers and acquisitions are a key part of value creation, and the aim is to create growth and income flow through these," says Rolf Jansson, CEO of Aspo.

Sustainability forms an integral part of our acquisition process and ownership agenda. Aspo's businesses aim to be forerunners in sustainability. In order to support our ESG commitments Aspo has defined new ESG targets for the material areas of the group and its business operations. The main target is to reduce emission intensity CO2e (tn) / turnover (t€), by 30% by the year 2025. The current level (2020) is 0.44 and the target level (2025) is 0.30.
