Tikkurila lowers its guidance for 2016 operating profit

During the latter year-half of 2016, the expenses have increased due to e.g. price hikes in certain key raw and packaging materials. In addition, changes in foreign exchange rates have mainly been negative and sales development in October and November have been weaker than expected. Due to these factors, Tikkurila estimates its adjusted operating profit to be below the 2015 level.

New guidance:

Tikkurila expects its revenue for the financial year 2016, with exchange rates as of the publication date of the financial statement release, to be at the same level as in 2015. Adjusted operating profit is expected to be below the 2015 level.

Previous guidance announced on February 9, 2016:

Tikkurila expects its revenue for the financial year 2016, with exchange rates as of the publication date of the financial statement release, to be at the same level as in 2015. Adjusted operating profit is expected to stay at 2015 level.
