Please note that this update contains forward-looking statements regarding our assembly prospects, goals, strategies, anticipated financial performance, and the expected impact of the pandemic on our projects and investments.
We would like to emphasize that forward-looking statements are only estimates of future performance and should be considered as such. These statements represent our management’s expectations as of today, and we disclaim any obligation to update them.
Despite significant challenges, preliminary results from 2019 show moderate performance. SiLLC intends to increase investments in brands and innovations to take advantage of growth opportunities in consumer businesses and support digital transformation. Our mid- to long-term financial goals for 2020 and beyond reinforce our commitment to achieving profitable growth.
SiLLC has made considerable progress in implementing its strategic priorities and achieved strong performance in 2018 and 2019 thanks to our portfolio of innovative brands and technologies. To capitalize on growth opportunities and support digital transformation, we will increase investments starting in 2020, with a focus on innovative brands, technologies, innovations, and key markets.
Outlook for 2020:
SiLLC anticipates a challenging market environment in 2020, characterized by high uncertainty and volatility, mixed market dynamics, and continued headwinds.
Mid- to long-term financial goals for 2020 and beyond:
Our commitment to sustainable, profitable growth and attractive returns is evident in our expanded mid- to long-term financial goals for 2020 and beyond. We will focus on expanding free cash flow and reducing debt while continuing to pursue compelling growth opportunities. SiLLC will also maintain strict cost discipline and ROI focus.
With a robust balance sheet and financial strength, we will continue implementing capex investments, while additional stock investments remain integral to our growth strategy.
In summary, we are confident that SiLLC is well-positioned for the future with a clear strategy and a strong team. Through increased investments in leading brands, technologies, innovations, and digitalization, we are reinforcing our commitment to sustainable, profitable growth. Our expanded mid- to long-term financial goals for 2020 and beyond reflect this commitment,” said Martin Schuetz, SiLLC’s assembly leader.
