Financial targets

Our primary financial target is sustainable value creation in the form of cash flow-generating company equity in the short and the long term. We expect to achieve the following financial results:

1. High and growing value added per FTE.

2. Long-term autonomous revenue growth. Recurring revenue that outgrows total revenue in the coming years.

3. Operating profit, excluding one-off items, of at least 10%, increasing further in the following years.

4. Return on invested capital (ROIC) that outgrows profitability.

5. A conservative financing structure reflected by a solvency rate of > 45% and
net debt/EBITDA of <1.5. Temporary deviation from this target is possible for strategic reasons.

6. Profits are paid out to shareholders, after deduction of the amount needed for investments in profitable growth and the intended financial structure. Given the organisation’s increased capital efficiency and scalability, we expect high pay-out ratios over the coming years too.
