Opus revises its financial targets

The revised financial targets focus on growth, operating profit margin and the efficient use of capital.

Opus’ revised financial targets are in line with the expected continuation of profitable growth. The new targets are as follows:

  • 5-10% annual revenue growth*
  • 15% EBITA margin
  • Net debt / EBITDA not to exceed 3.0**

*Organic and acquisitive growth based on 3-year CAGR
**Net Debt / EBITDA excluding IFRS16 effects. Net Debt / EBITDA may exceed 3.0 times if an attractive business opportunity arises

The revised financial targets include organic growth derived from underlying growth from existing business, as well as from program wins as they may occur, complemented by attractive bolt-on acquisitions. While continuing the growth of Opus, our operating profit target ensures focus on solid profit margins and capital returns of our combined businesses.

CEO Lothar Geilen stated “Opus will continue to drive profitable growth while considering our financial leverage, which includes applying less capital-intensive business models. By delivering on these objectives, we are convinced that Opus will further grow as a leader in the global vehicle inspection market and will continue its exciting journey in the intelligent vehicle support market.”
