Financial responsibility is based on profitable growth

Posti’s financial responsibility is based on transparency and profitability. We want to grow profitably, as only a financially sound company can implement its responsibilities in terms of society, personnel, the environment and all stakeholder groups. We plan our finances from a long-term perspective, anticipating changes in the market, customer demands and risk scenarios in Finland and abroad. Financial responsibility management is supported by our risk management policy, internal control principles and corporate governance principles.

We are a state-owned company that operates on market terms, and our operations are entirely based on the revenue received from our customers. We implement our financial responsibility by reforming our business operations and improving our profitability in line with our strategy.

Posti’s financial targets are as follows:

  • Adjusted operating result: 4%
  • Return on capital employed: 10%
  • Net debt/adjusted EBITDA: less than 2.0x
  • Stable dividend growth.

The financial impacts of our operations are very extensive, as our services are used by thousands of private and public sector operators every day, in addition to consumers.
