Update on personnel costs and 2016 reporting

Basware launched a productivity programme on November 2, 2016 to simplify its operations and increase scalability, aimed at accelerating the growth of its cloud-based business and increasing productivity.

The costs booked in 2016 related to personnel reductions being part of the productivity programme will amount to roughly EUR 5 million and will be included in "Adjustments to EBITDA" in Basware's fourth quarter and full year 2016 reporting. The targeted annual savings related to personnel of approximately EUR 7 to 8 million starting from 2018 are unchanged, in addition to other potential savings through the programme.

Basware will publish its Financial Statements Bulletin for 2016 on Wednesday, February 1, 2017.
