Musti Group to update its long-term financial targets

Musti Group’s Board of Directors has decided to update the company’s long-term financial targets. The updated long-term financial targets are:

  • Net sales to reach at least EUR 500 million by the financial year 2024 by continuation of strong customer acquisition momentum and increasing share of wallet.
  • Mid- to long-term adjusted EBITA margin of at least 13 per cent with steadily improving profile. Margin increase is expected to be realized through steady gross margin and improving operating leverage.
  • Maintain net debt in relation to adjusted EBITDA below 2.5x in the long term.
  • To pay a dividend corresponding to 60-80 per cent of net profit. Any potential dividend shall take into account acquisitions, the company’s financial position, cash flow and future growth opportunities.

CEO David Rönnberg: ‘We are well on track and committed on delivering on our plan and the updated long-term financial targets. We continue to focus on our priorities: growing profitably, winning new customers, and systematically growing the share of wallet with our customers, supported by the expanding selection of products and services in our continuously developing Musti Group ecosystem. In doing so, we will strengthen our position as the market leader as we move towards time after the pandemic – and beyond. We look forward to a future marked by ongoing innovation, winning customer hearts and minds and growing market share.’

Musti Group will arrange a live webcast for analysts and media today at 2pm EEST following the release of the Half-Year Financial Report. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss the new long-term financial targets with CEO David Rönnberg and CFO Robert Berglund. The webcast can be followed at https://mustigroup.videosync.fi/2021-q2-results
