ITAB establishes new financial targets
The Board of Directors for ITAB Shop Concept AB (publ) (“ITAB”) has set new financial targets that support the Group’s ambition to establish ITAB as the retail market’s leading solution provider.
The financial targets for ITAB as established by the Board of Directors are:
Average growth in net sales of 4-8 percent per annum over a business cycle. Growth is to be achieved by sustainable organic growth and strategic acquisitions.
Average EBIT margin (operating profit in relation to net revenue) of 7-9 percent over a business cycle.
Average cash conversion ratio* of at least 80 percent over a business cycle.
As before, dividends over a longer period should follow the result and correspond to at least 30 percent of the company’s profit after tax. However, dividends will be adjusted to the company’s investment requirements and any share repurchase program.
* Cash conversion = Operational cash flow / EBITDA (operating profit before depreciation and amortization)
”ITAB is well positioned for the next step in the implementation of our strategy, where in the coming years we intend to establish ITAB as the retail market's leading solution provider. We build capabilities for more efficient and sustainable sales, purchasing and production with the ambition of increasing the proportion of services in our customer solutions. Over the past two years, we have carried out a number of important activities in the transformation of ITAB and are now ready to take the next step with clear financial goals that focus on sustainable growth and increased profitability,” says Andréas Elgaard, President & CEO of ITAB.
