Outlook for 2014

Since the beginning of 2014, the Itella Group consists of four business groups: Itella Mail Communications, Itella Logistics Nordic, Itella Logistics Russia and OpusCapita.

The Group’s business is characterized by seasonality. Net sales and operating results in the business groups are not accrued evenly over the year. In Mail Communications, the first and fourth quarters are typically strong, while the second and third quarters are weaker. In Logistics, the second half of the year is stronger.

The Itella Group expects its comparable net sales in euros for 2014 to remain at the previous year’s level. The Group’s operating result before non-recurring items is expected to improve markedly. However, the operating result will continue to be affected by significant non-recurring items in 2014.

Itella Mail Communications’ net sales and operational result are expected to decrease.

Logistics’ comparable net sales are expected to remain at the previous year’s level at the minimum. Its operating result is expected to improve significantly.

OpusCapita’s net sales and operating result are expected to remain at the previous year’s level.

Investments are expected to increase from 2013.
