EAB Group Plc continues measures to increase profitability and starts planning a new efficiency program

EAB Group Plc (EAB, Company) continues measures to increase profitability and starts planning a new efficiency program. The planned efficiency program has a goal of achieving savings of 1 million euros in personnel and other costs.

EAB has during the last years invested into internal efficiency in the form of new it-systems and new ways to organise work. Starting from the summer 2019 the Company has in full use a new operative it-system instead of several old systems. In addition, the Company has during the years 2018-2019 implemented a new agile method of performing all its’ development and project activities. The purpose of the efficiency plan is to help the Company to achieve its profitability and other strategic goals by enhancing the client centric and scalability of the Company’s activities.

Prior to the planned efficiency program, the Company has already made efficiency measures and achieved a reduction in personnel of approximately 10%. The new efficiency program involves re-organising tasks in the whole organisation to ensure Company’s profitability in the future.

If the plan is executed, it involves changes to the organisation and tasks of the personnel, therefore the plan is discussed with the personnel in co-operation negotiations. The plan involves the entire staff of the Company and all its subsidiaries. According to a preliminary estimate the plan would, if executed, involve the lay-off of at maximum 9 persons, if their tasks are not continued.
