Ratos shall be the first choice as an owner for developing companies.
Ratos is an investment company whose business comprises the acquisition and development of preferably unlisted Nordic enterprises. Over time, Ratos is to generate the highest possible shareholder value by actively exercising its ownership to realise the potential of a number of selected companies.
Ratos's financial targets focus on the earnings trend of the company portfolio, Ratos's debt ratio and the total return of the share.
- The earnings of the company portfolio should increase each year
- Total return of the Ratos share should over time outperform the average on Nasdaq Stockholm
Ratos has from 2019 decided to stop using the debt ratio as a target, both for the Group and for the portfolio. The primary reason for this is that Ratos AB does not provide any guarantees for subsidiary or associated company liabilities, so such a calculation is misleading. Ratos’s companies are active within a wide variety of sectors, which also makes such a calculation misleading. What is clear is that Ratos strives to operate its companies with a well-balanced leverage.
