Download as PDF


Looking at the opportunities ahead, and at Ferronordic’s performance and financial position in  2020,  the  Board  has  decided to update Ferronordic’s financial  objectives  and  dividend policy

Ferronordic’s financial objectives should be aligned with and support its strategic objectives:

•     Leadership in the market for construction equipment and trucks

•     Geographic expansion

•     Expansion into related business areas

•     Expansion and development of contracting services

•     Industry leading digital service and sales platforms

•     Aftermarket absorption rate of at least 1.0 x

The Chairman of Ferronordic’s Board of Directors, Staffan Jufors, comments:

“By executing on its strategy, Ferronordic has become a more mature and diversified business. It operates across  three  markets  and  represents  several  leading  brands  next  to  Volvo.  It  has  developed  vertically  by investing in a component and machine rebuild center, growing its rental and used businesses, and significantly expanding its contracting services business. It has developed a digital sales platform to support its service organisation  and  its  customers.  We  see  potential  for  Ferronordic  to  continue  to  grow,  with  significant contributions from contracting services and Germany. As contracting services and rental operations tie up more capital in  machinery  and  as network infrastructure in  Germany is owned  or leased for long  periods,  Ferronordic’s business model becomes more asset and capital intensive. As Ferronordic continues to pursue its strategic objectives, its updated financial objectives reflect its current position and strategic direction in 2020-2025“.

Ferronordic’s financial objectives have been updated to:

•     Double the 2020 revenue in its current markets by 2025

•     Operating margin above 7%

•     Net debt/EBITDA below 3 times (over a business cycle)

The Board has also decided on a new dividend policy, according to which the ambition should be to pay at least 50% of net income if net debt/EBITDA is less than 1.0 x, post dividend payment, and to pay at least 25% if net debt/EBITDA is more than 1.0 x. The Board will take several factors into account when proposing the level of dividend including legal requirements, the articles of association, the group’s expansion opportunities, its financial position and other investment needs.
