Transcom announces mid-term financial targets

Stockholm, February 5, 2015

Transcom today announced that the company has adopted a set of mid-term financial targets.

“2014 was a good year for Transcom, which marked the company’s exit from the turnaround phase we initiated at the end of 2011 in order to improve financial predictability and operational stability. We now have a solid foundation for the future, and the adoption of these financial targets signifies the beginning of the next stage in Transcom’s development”, commented Johan Eriksson, President & CEO of Transcom.

Transcom’s mid-term targets are:

  • Like-for-like revenue growth of at least 5 percent per year
  • EBIT margin of at least 5 percent
  • Net debt/EBITDA ratio of maximum 1.0.

Provided that the net debt/EBITDA target is met, Transcom would be in a financial position to start paying a dividend in 2016, i.e. for the 2015 financial year.

Johan Eriksson, President and CEO of Transcom, commented:

“Transcom’s fundamental objective is to create shareholder value through profitable growth. Our strategic priorities in order to achieve our goals are informed by our vision of being recognized as a global leader in customer experience: We aim to grow together with our clients, while also creating a more balanced industry and client portfolio; we will continuously improve our service offering, focusing on advanced, value-added services; we will seek to strengthen Transcom’s global footprint, supporting the European core market; and we will make sure that we have a competitive operational platform.”
