The Company is governed based on quantified sustainability targets.
The Board of Directors of BillerudKorsnäs has decided on the following financial targets for the new Company
Over a business cycle, the operating margin should on average exceed 10%. BillerudKorsnäs operates in an industry that historically has tracked a cyclical pattern, with corresponding variations in earning capacity.
Return on capital employed
Over a business cycle, the return on capital employed (ROCE) should on average exceed 13%. BillerudKorsnäs shall ensure a return corresponding to the shareholders’ return expectations while the cost for the Company’s debt is covered with a margin.
Net debt/equity ratio
Over a business cycle, the net debt/equity ratio should be below 0.9. BillerudKorsnäs’ business is influenced to a large extent by the general economic climate, which means that the operating risk is considerable. Strengthening the financial position in good years is therefore essential in order to sustain the Group in bad years.
Over a business cycle, the dividend should on average amount to 50% of net profit. The dividend paid to shareholders will be dependent on, among other factors, BillerudKorsnäs’ profit level, financial position and future development opportunities.
