5 percent. 

This target is not likely to be met during the 2021 financial year, as growth was unexpectedly high in 2020 due to the sale of barrier products at the start of the pandemic. 

Operating marginOperating margin over a business cycle should be at least 10 percent. 
Net debtNet debt in relation to EBITDA shall not exceed 2.5x. 
Dividend policyThe dividend policy is to pay shareholders about 30-50 percent of the profit for the year. Decisions on dividends will reflect the company´s financial poistion, cash flow and investment needs.
