FLSmidth Announces ‘GREEN’26’ Cement Strategy for Green Transition and Growth in Service Business

(PRESS RELEASE) COPENHAGEN, 18-Jan-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — FLSmidth (CPH: FLS), a Danish multinational engineering company, announced today at its Capital Markets Day the introduction of new pure play strategies for mining and cement and new long-term financial targets for the fiscal year 2026.

The company has undergone a transformation in recent years, with a focus on technology, products, and services and sustainability in order to maximize opportunities in the mining and cement industries and improve profitability. As CEO Mikko Keto stated, “We must prioritize 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.”

The new mining strategy, CORE’26, is centered around the purpose of “mining for a sustainable world” and the mission of “delivering solutions for tomorrow’s mine.” It focuses on four main areas: sustainability, service, technology, and performance. The new cement strategy, GREEN’26, aims to become the preferred service provider and drive the green transition in the cement industry, focusing on operating model transition, service business model transition, and green transition.

FLSmidth also announced new long-term financial targets for the fiscal year 2026, with an EBITA margin of 13-15% in mining and ~8% in cement, a focus on quality of earnings and reduced earnings volatility, and a capital allocation strategy centered on maintaining a strong balance sheet while allowing for growth investments and value-adding M&A. The company also stated that leverage and dividend pay-out ratio targets remain unchanged, and excess cash may be distributed via extraordinary dividends or share buyback programs.
