Outlook and financial targets and definition of key figures
Outlook for 2021
(updated on Feb 18, 2021)
Kemira’s revenue in local currencies, excluding acquisitions and divestments, is expected to increase from 2020 (EUR 2,427 million).
Kemira’s operative EBITDA is expected to be at the same or at a slightly (less than 5%) lower level than in 2020 (EUR 435 million).
Assumptions behind outlook
COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause uncertainty in 2021, but Kemira’s end market demand is expected to recover gradually from 2020 in line with forecasted economic growth. Demand, particularly in the oil and gas market, is expected to recover. The outlook assumes no significant disruptions to Kemira’s operations. Currencies are expected to have a negative impact on operative EBITDA.
