Venue:The London Stock Exchange, 10 Paternoster Square, London EC4M 7LS

Chairman and CEO Jari Rosendal:

“Since the last Capital Markets Day in 2020, we have achieved several concrete milestones in our profitable growth strategy. In 2020, we introduced a target to reach €500 million in bio-based revenue by 2030. Our bio-based strategy has progressed and bio-based revenues exceeded €200 million last year, so we are on track to meet our target. In June, we also created a separate growth accelerator unit to accelerate the commercialization of selected strategic initiatives We are also exploring exciting new growth opportunities in adjacent markets, such as wood fiber textiles, which we expect to grow rapidly in the coming years.

Our financial objectives remain intact and we continue to aim for growth above that of the market, an operating EBITDA margin of around 15 to 18% and a debt ratio below 75%. We continue to focus on keeping the margin within the range of financial targets, while putting more emphasis on growth. We see three ways to achieve our above-market growth objective: pockets of growth within our existing businesses, new growth opportunities, such as bio-based products and textiles, as well as mergers and acquisitions, especially in water treatment.

Over the past two years, we have seen unprecedented changes in our operating environment. We have proven our agility in recent years by responding quickly to changes. To create shareholder value, we will continue to navigate a volatile near-term environment while pursuing our long-term growth ambitions.”
