Tulikivi Corporation lowers its full-year net sales and operating result forecast

As a consequence of the weak market conditions, Tulikivi Corporation’s sales and profitability have not performed as well as expected. Net sales for 2014 are expected to total EUR 39.3 million (EUR 43.7 million in 2013). The company expects to post an operating loss of about 2.4 million euros (EUR -4.3 million in 2013).

The demand for Tulikivi products is very much linked to changes in consumer confidence and in the construction sector. The performance improvement programme that started in 2013 includes production and sales efficiency measures and cost-saving measures. The impact of these measures will be felt during the period 2014-2016.
