• Sales growth target remains unchanged at over 10 percent annually (CAGR);
• Earnings per share growth is targeted to exceed sales growth;
• Profitability targets (EBITA-%) set for the business segments;
• Return on capital employed (ROCE) is targeted to exceed 20 percent.

“Our target is to create shareholder value through growth and profitability and we will focus on growth in businesses in which we can achieve a strong global position. High share of services is important for our value creation and thus we target high growth in services in all of our businesses,” says President and CEO Matti Kähkönen.

“Profitability will be measured by earnings per share (EPS) on the group level and by EBITA margins on the segment level. By introducing segment-level profitability targets we aim to increase transparency of Metso’s businesses. We think that growth in sales and earnings together with high return on capital employed (ROCE) are the main drivers of our shareholder value going forward. Our record-high order backlog and strong balance sheet provide us with a solid backbone to support the growth,” Kähkönen continues.

The following new financial targets replace the previous targets set in August 2008:

Growth
Our target for sales growth is unchanged and we target annual average sales growth (CAGR) over 10 percent including acquisitions. We will continue to emphasize growth in the Services business where the target is to reach more than 10 percent growth annually.

Profitability
Metso will introduce a new group-level profitability target of the annual earnings per share (EPS) growth exceeding the sales growth.

The EBITA*-% targets will be set on our segments. The following target ranges are reflecting the different characteristics of our businesses:

Segment Minimum EBITA*-% (low demand) Targeted EBITA*-% (high demand)
Mining and Construction 10% 15%
Automation 11% 16%
Pulp, Paper and Power 6% 9%

*before non-recurring items.

Capital efficiency
Return on capital employed (ROCE-%) is one of the key measurements used in Metso and we target a return higher than 20 percent (excl. impact of major acquisitions).

Capital structure
Our target is to maintain a solid investment grade rating. This target is unchanged.
The target for dividend policy remains unchanged as well. Metso’s target is to distribute at least 50 percent of annual earnings per share as a dividend or in other forms of capital distribution.

Metso (metso.com) is a global supplier of sustainable technology and services for mining, construction, power generation, automation, recycling and the pulp and paper industries. We have about 29,000 employees in more than 50 countries.
