Dustin presents new segment reporting

Dustin hosts a Capital Markets Day today at the logistics center in Rosersberg. The focus of today is to present the company's new segment reporting and provide a detailed review of the company's strategy and market position.

Dustin presents a new segment reporting, where the current B2B segment, which in the 2016/17 fiscal year accounted for about 94 percent of the company's total sales, will be divided into two new segments. From the first quarter of 2017/18, the company will report the following three segments; SMB, which represented 38 percent of sales in the last fiscal year, LCP, large companies and public sector with a sales share of approximately 56 percent and as previously B2C, which represented about 6 percent of sales during the same period. The segment margins for the respective segments amounted to 10.7 percent for SMB, 6.9 percent for LCP and 4.1 percent for B2C in the fiscal year 2016/17.

The overall ambition is that Dustin, in line with the company's financial targets, will continue to drive organic profitable growth of 8 percent over a cycle, supplemented with 3-5 acquisitions per year, and reach an adjusted EBITA margin within the target range of 5-6 percent. Profitability will, over time, primarily be strengthened through continued acquisitions of companies niched towards selected categories of more advanced products and services, an increased share of service sales and recurring revenue, continued expansion of private label products, and a more balanced mix between the SMB and LCP segments.

The company also presents its initiatives within managed and cloud-based services, as well as providing a picture of Dustin's strong position online and how these develop the overall business. In addition, the acquisition strategy together with the company's strong financial position and low capital requirements are highlighted.

We have a clear strategy and a strong online position where we benefit from underlying market trends, which creates good conditions for delivering in accordance with our financial targets, says Georgi Ganev, President and CEO of Dustin.

The Capital Markets Day takes place today, on November 30 at 10.00-15.00 CET, at Dustin's Logistics Center in Rosersberg and include presentations by President and CEO; Georgi Ganev, CFO & VP Business Support; Johan Karlsson, VP Services & Solutions; Jens Haviken, Director Solution Sales Sweden; Andreas Boo and VP SMB & B2C; Göran Lindö. Dustin's incoming President and CEO Thomas Ekman will be presented while Head of Corporate Responsibility Stephanie Forsblom and VP Private Label Robert Pap will present Dustin's work within Corporate Responsibility and private label products. The program also includes a walking tour at the logistics center.

The presentation from the Capital Markets Day will be available from 10:00 CET at: http://www.dustingroup.com/en/reports-and-presentations
