UPM aims higher with renewed long-term financial targets
In January 2017 UPM decided on new long-term financial targets:
- Business area long-term return targets have been increased.
- Comparable ROE target have been increased.
- Comparable EBIT growth has been introduced as a new group-level target.
- A new financial policy on leverage based on net debt/EBITDA has been introduced.
The cash flow-based dividend policy remains unchanged. UPM aims to pay an attractive dividend: 30-40% of the company's annual operating cash flow per share.
