FLSmidth introduces new pure play strategies for Mining and Cement and introduces new long-term financial targets at its Capital Markets Day 2023
COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT NO. 2-2023
18 January 2023, Copenhagen, Denmark
Today FLSmidth is hosting a Capital Markets Day, where the company is introducing its new pure play strategies for Mining and Cement as well as its new long-term financial targets for the FY2026.
Our business and our business environment have changed in recent years. While our business performance has gradually improved, we have potential for more. As a result, we kickstarted a transformation journey in 2022 with a sharpened strategic focus on technology, Products & Services and sustainability to maximise our opportunities in Mining and Cement. In addition, we are simplifying our operating model to reduce risks, improve efficiencies, ensure stronger execution and improve profitability and quality of earnings.
“We must prioritise our efforts on our core business, reduce risk and execute with excellence. We have already started to fundamentally transform our business to ensure stronger strategy execution and to achieve our long-term ambitions to the benefit of our stakeholders”, comments Mikko Keto, CEO at FLSmidth.
Mining strategy (CORE’26)
Our new Mining strategy provides a clear path to build on our core strengths to become an even stronger player in the Mining market and to improve our profitability in Mining. CORE’26 is rooted on our purpose of ‘mining for a sustainable world’ with a mission of ‘delivering solutions for tomorrow’s mine’. To deliver on this, CORE’26 is focused on four areas: Sustainability, Service, Technology and Performance.
- Sustainability: Building a better future for our employees, society and the planet
- Service: Global partner for life-cycle performance and sustainability
- Technology: The complete provider for process and product technology
- Performance: Accelerating profitability through core businesses, simplification and balanced risk
Cement strategy (GREEN’26)
We are on a journey to become the preferred service provider and we have a clear commitment to drive the green transition in the cement industry. Towards 2026, our new Cement strategy focuses on three key areas:
- Operating model transition: Improve profitability and ensure we are fit-for-purpose
- Service business model transition: Accelerate service growth and advance green offerings
- Green transition: Fulfil our commitment to drive the green transition in the cement industry and leverage the potential from this
New long-term financial targets
The previous mid- and long-term financial targets were withdrawn in connection with the release of the Annual report 2020, due to the uncertainty around the pandemic and other structural changes. Following the acquisition of TK Mining, our pure play approach and the establishment of a Non-Core Activities segment, we now have improved visibility into each of our different businesses.
As a consequence, we are introducing new long-term financial targets for the FY2026 with a core focus on quality of earnings and reduced earnings volatility.
For the FY2026, we expect to deliver:
- 13-15% EBITA margin in Mining
- ~8% EBITA margin in Cement
Further, our capital allocation is focused on having a strong balance sheet while allowing for growth investments and value-adding M&A.
Our capital structure targets for leverage and dividend pay-out ratio remain unchanged with:
- Leverage (NIBD/EBITDA < 2)
- Dividend pay-out ratio (30-50% of net profit)
Excess cash may be distributed either via extraordinary dividends or share buyback programmes. An equity ratio of >30% is no longer a capital structure target.
All sessions of the Capital Markets Day 2023 are webcasted live at www.flsmidth.com/en-gb/company/investors/capital-market-days. Replay of the presentations will be made available on our website after the event and the corresponding presentation material will be made available throughout the day.

BALTIC HORIZON FUND CONSOLIDATED AUDITED RESULTS FOR 202231.3.2023 23:10:00 CEST | Press release
Management Board of Northern Horizon Capital AS has approved the audited financial results of Baltic Horizon Fund (the Fund) for the year 2022. The financial results remained unchanged compared to the preliminary disclosure on 15 February 2023. Net result and net rental income In 2022, the Group recorded a net profit of EUR 3.9 million against EUR 1.4 million for 2021. The net result was mainly driven by strong recovery of the Galerija Centrs operating performance as fewer COVID-19 rent reliefs were granted to tenants in 2022 and increased rent indexation. The net result in 2021 was significantly impacted by the one-off negative valuation result of EUR 7.1 million. In 2022, the valuation resulted in a net fair value loss of EUR 2.9 million (-1.8% of portfolio value). The positive impact of the increase in net rental income was partly offset by non-recovered property costs. Earnings per unit for 2022 were EUR 0.03 (2021: EUR 0.07). In 2022, the Group earned net rental income of EUR 17.4
