Glaston announced in October that it is purposefully continuing measures to improve profitability and that it was considering additional adjustment measures. Through the measures initiated today, Glaston will adjust its cost structure to correspond to current net sales level. The annual cost savings resulting from the adjustment measures are estimated at around EUR 7 million.
The measures, when implemented, would give rise to non-recurring costs of around EUR 10 million, which would be recorded in the final quarter of 2010.
Through the measures announced today and earlier Glaston will substantially improve its profitability in 2011.
