Simplify, Focus, Grow
Kendrion announced its updated strategy on 3 May 2016. It is founded on three pillars: Simplify, Focus, Grow.
Our target up to 2018
Kendrion stated its medium-term financial objectives on 3 May 2016. The three-year targets are to deliver an EBITA margin of 10% as from the end of 2018, to grow organically until 2018 broadly in line with Kendrion’s average historical organic growth of an average of 5% per annum and to maintain the dividend policy of paying out 35 to 50% of the net profit.
Targeted add-on acquisitions
Kendrion has a strong financial position and has delivered excellent rates of cash conversion which have contributed to a healthy balance sheet. Kendrion endeavours to acquire companies that enhance the company’s leading position in its automotive and industrial markets. Acquisition targets need to offer good returns in terms of their EBIT and ROI, preferably at levels similar to or above Kendrion’s returns and that leads to an improvement in earnings per share.
