Positive profit warning: Lassila & Tikanoja updates its net sales outlook for 2021

Lassila & Tikanoja improves its net sales outlook for 2021.

The new outlook is as follows:
Net sales in 2021 are estimated to grow and adjusted operating profit is estimated to be at the same level or better compared to the previous year.

The previous outlook, published in the financial statements bulletin on 28 January 2021, was as follows:
Net sales in 2021 are estimated to be at the same level and adjusted operating profit at the same level or better compared to the previous year.

The company’s long-term financial targets remain unchanged.

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted all of Lassila & Tikanoja’s businesses throughout the first half of the year and the demand for services was difficult to predict at times. In the second quarter, material volumes began to recover and the prices of secondary raw materials continued to recover. Demand in the industrial segment was strong. Lassila & Tikanoja carried out three business acquisitions in the second quarter, strengthening its position in Environmental Services and Facility Services Finland’s food hygiene and retail services in accordance with L&T’s strategy. The combined net sales of the acquired businesses amounted to approximately EUR 25 million in 2020. The acquisitions support the company’s target of annually increasing its net sales organically and through acquisitions by more than 5 per cent.
