Kemira adjusts 2020 financial targets

November 20/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Kemira says its board has approved updated financial targets for 2020. The company is now targeting an operative EBITDA margin of 15-18% instead of 15-17%, according to Chemweek.
The other financial targets remain unchanged. Kemira is aiming for growth above market rates and a debt/equity ratio below 75%.

The company confirmed in October its revised 2020 outlook as part of the announcement of its third-quarter results.

Only high denstiy polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased.
