Strategy and targets
Our strategy – towards sustainable profitable growth
In accordance with our strategy, Eltel is transforming into a Nordic company, based in countries in which it has a market-leading position. A Nordic focus with lower risk and fewer capital-intensive projects will enable Eltel to continue to develop, grow and invest in order to ensure long-term value creation for the company, its shareholders and society at large. Sustainability is key to our success and an integral part of our strategy.
In 2021, we completed the Operational Excellence phase of our strategy. While operational excellence remains an integral part of Eltel, our strategic focus is now on investing in Sustainable Profitable Growth as the transformation continues. This involves:
- Increasing market share in the Nordics
- Innovation and new market development
- Replicating successful business models
- Pursuing M&As in the Nordics
- Industry sustainability leadership
Our strategy will create the foundation for sustainable growth, profitability and shareholder value.
Eltel’s strategy – towards sustainable profitable growth – is based on three goals that are mutually supportive and contribute to our success:
