Outlook

Clear signs of recovery are apparent in many product segments. However, the recovery pace remains subject to the impact of the sanitary situation of the pandemic and the economy. The standard products market remains strongly driven by the sudden economic downturns and lockdowns, and the strategy remains to further explore untamed markets in customized products.

Forecasted revenue growth for 2021 vs. 2020 is expected to be over 12%. The adjusted EBITDA for the year 2021 is expected to be in the range between EUR 18m – 20m including a positive impact of EUR 1.2m from IFRS 16.
