Stockholm - Tele2 AB (Tele2), (NASDAQ OMX Stockholm: TEL2 A and TEL2 B) today announced new financial targets for its operations
A long-term ROCE target of 24 (earlier 20) percent is set for the Tele2 Group, as the company wants to lay particular stress on cost control and optimal use of capital.
Lars Nilsson, CFO of Tele2, comments: "We need to continuously raise the bar for our company and set demanding targets that challenge our organization and keep us on our toes. I believe that this shows our shareholders and lenders that Tele2 has a strong financial foundation upon which it can leverage in the future."
