SSAB as an investment
SSAB’s strategy aims to secure the company’s long-term development to create value for shareholders and other stakeholders.
SSAB’s main financial objective is to reach industry leading profitability and to generate solid cash flows, enabling further debt reduction and shareholder dividends.
SSAB has four core markets:
SSAB has leading positions in its Nordic and North American home markets. SSAB has an overall market share of 40-45% for flat carbon steels in the Nordic region. In North America, SSAB is the largest producer of heavy plate, with market share approaching 30%.
With its leading products, brands, knowledge and well-invested asset base, SSAB also holds the number one position in the global market for Quenched and Tempered (Q&T) plate and strip and in selected Advanced High-Strength Steels (AHSS) segments. Demand for higher productivity and improved energy efficiency are important drivers in the use of high-strength steels, which provide advantages in the form of stronger, lighter and more durable steel applications. Growth in high-strength steels, services and other premium grades will mean better returns for SSAB since profitability is relatively higher in these areas compared to more standardized products.
