"EBITDA is forecasted to be at the 2018 level - that is, 12-14%," Normet interim CEO Aaro Cantell said this week.

"The outlook for year 2019 is still positive, although the market growth is slowing down. We are in the process of scanning new growth areas to secure our renewal and future growth.

"Our aim is to identify and launch 2-4 of these growth initiatives during this year."
