Guidance for 2021 unchanged

Valmet reiterates its guidance issued on April 16, 2021, in which Valmet estimates that net sales in 2021 will increase in comparison with 2020 (EUR 3,740 million) and Comparable EBITA in 2021 will increase in comparison with 2020 (EUR 365 million).

Short-term market outlook

Valmet estimates that the short-term market outlook for services has improved to good (previously good/satisfactory) and the short-term market outlook for tissue has decreased to satisfactory (previously good). Valmet reiterates the good short-term market outlook for automation, pulp, and board and paper and the weak short-term market outlook for energy.

President and CEO Pasi Laine: Order backlog amounted to EUR 4.2 billion

"Valmet's orders received increased to EUR 1.1 billion in the third quarter of 2021. Orders received increased in all business lines. In the stable business (Services and Automation business lines), orders received increased to EUR 451 million1. In the capital business (Paper, and Pulp and Energy business lines), orders received increased to EUR 681 million.

Our order backlog reached a record high of EUR 4.2 billion, which is EUR 942 million higher than at the end of 2020.

Net sales increased both in the stable and capital business and amounted to EUR 935 million. The Comparable EBITA increased as well, and the Comparable EBITA margin was 11.4 percent.

On September 22, Valmet's and Neles' Extraordinary General Meetings resolved to approve the merger of Valmet and Neles. The planned closing date of the merger is January 1, 2022.  The execution of the merger is still subject to obtaining the necessary merger control approvals by the relevant competition authorities, and therefore the planned closing date may still change."

Merger with Neles

On July 2, 2021, Valmet announced that the Boards of Directors of Valmet Oyj and Neles Corporation have signed a combination agreement and a merger plan to combine the two companies through a merger. Both companies held an Extraordinary General Meeting on September 22, 2021, and both EGMs approved the merger. The planned closing date of the merger is January 1, 2022. The planned closing date may be delayed due to the regulatory processes ongoing. Should the closing be delayed from January 1, 2022, Valmet will issue a stock exchange release on the matter and the prospectus will be supplemented once there is more clarity on the timetable of the regulatory processes. Until the completion of the merger Valmet and Neles will carry out their respective businesses as separate and independent companies.
