After having been an established value in the Euronext Brussels Star Index since its start in 1991, Bekaert regrets the announced exclusion from BEL20®. We congratulate Ablynx who enters BEL20® and wish them success.
Bekaert (Euronext BEKB), world market and technology leader in steel wire transformation and coating technologies, employing almost 30 000 people worldwide and generating € 4.8 billion in combined annual revenue, will continue to create value for its customers and shareholders. That is our focus. Our growth and transformation journey will allow us to move towards a 10% underlying EBIT margin over the medium term. That is our firm ambition.
