Changes to Eltel’s segment reporting and in Group Management Team

Eltel will launch a new segment structure in the financial reports starting with the January-March 2021 interim report.

The current Power and Communication segments will be replaced by four country segments: Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. All future Power and Communication business in these four Nordic countries will be presented under the new country segments. Current solution unit Smart Grids will be divided into the new country segments and solution unit High Voltage, which conducts most of its business in Poland and Germany, will be presented outside segments in Other.

As per 1 January 2021, close to 90% of Eltel’s business will be conducted in the Nordics, in line with the Nordic strategy. This change has the intention to reduce complexity and in a more balanced and transparent way reflect the Group’s performance and organisational set up.

Against this background, solution unit High Voltage will no longer have a position in the Group Management Team as of 31 December 2020, and, therefore, Christian Wittneven’s assignment as Director of solution unit High Voltage will end on that date.
