Financial objectives

Rottneros' overall long-term financial objectives are to pay a competitive dividend to shareholders in the form of both value development and dividend yield.

Profitability
Profitability (measured as return on capital employed) shall exceed the profitability for comparable pulp producing companies.

Dividend policy
The level of dividends is to be adapted to Rottneros' performance level, debt/equity ratio, general financial status, future development opportunities and investment needs. Our capacity to pay dividends should be viewed over the entire business cycle rather than for an individual year. This means that dividends will be restrained in good years so that it will be possible to pay dividends in years where results are weaker.
