Outlook for 2019

Financial statement release 2018

In 2019, Fiskars Group expects the comparable net sales and comparable EBITA to be at the same level as in 2018.

The outlook is influenced by the company’s investments in growth initiatives that are expected to add sustainable value in the long-term. In addition, there are material risks relating to changes in the operating environment, e.g. Brexit and the U.S. tariffs. An unfavorable outcome of these risks might have a significant impact on the comparable net sales and comparable EBITA. Furthermore, fluctuations in currency rates might also have a considerable impact on comparable EBITA.

Comparable net sales excludes the impact of exchange rates, acquisitions and divestments. Items affecting comparability in EBITA include restructuring costs, impairment charges, integration related costs, acquisitions and divestments, and gain and loss from the sale of businesses.
