09/15/2021 | 03:01am EST

Nurminen Logistics Plc                                                                       Stock exchange release   September 15, 2021 at 10 a.m.


NURMINEN LOGISTICS PLC has defined the economic goals for 2021-2023 pursuant to its new strategy.

The company's new medium-term economic goals for 2021-2023 are:

The economic goals for 2021-2023 have been defined taking into account the sustainable growth of shareholder value. The current corporate structure, including the ownership of the Vuosaari terminal property, has also been taken into account as this allows a considerably higher than normal indebtedness level for the company.
