Aker Solutions: Focus on Quality of Operations, Returns Paying Off

Aker Solutions' increased attention to operations and return on equity is starting to pay off after a challenging start to the year.

The company will today at its capital markets day announce that all business areas are committed to improvement programmes that will start translating into double-digit profit margins for Aker Solutions and an improved return on equity. New investment criteria are being set, moving the hurdle rate up to 15 percent. This focus will mean challenging the business rationale for each investment and testing it against whether a share buyback would yield a better return for investors.

"While we will continue to build Aker Solutions, the focus on topline growth will be toned down and more attention will be paid to growing our profit and share price," Executive Chairman Øyvind Eriksen says. "We are going to reduce our investment levels so that we don't overinvest in capacity that could erode margins."
