Financial targets

Release on January 26, 2011

KONE has not defined a time frame for the achievement of these financial targets. The target is to continuously grow faster than the market and to improve working capital rotation. The target over the long term is to achieve an EBIT margin of 16%. However, given the capital and asset structure of KONE, the aim is not to maxi­mize the EBIT margin in the short term, but rather to grow the absolute EBIT in an optimal way over the long term and as a result maintain a strong return on capi­tal employed. The relative EBIT margin target is relevant in ensuring that growth is profitable and that pricing, quality and productivity improve continuously.
