The objective of Metso's debt financing is to safeguard ongoing business operations and to optimize the cost of capital. As part of our strategy, our goal is to maintain an investment grade rating. The Group Treasury has the objective to secure the availability of funds for operations and capital expenditure, including acquisitions, and to arrange funding at competitive terms and conditions and from several different sources. Group Treasury is responsible for relationships with banks and other financial institutions. Metso currently has sufficient financial resources to meet its financial needs.
