DNA's Capital Markets Day to be held in Helsinki on 21 November 2017

DNA PLC STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 16 November, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. (EET)

On 21 November, DNA is arranging its first Capital Markets Day for institutional investors and analysts. At the event, DNA's senior management will go through the cornerstones of the strategy, give an overview of the business environment and outlook, and present DNA's measures to continue its profitable growth. Overviews will also be provided of the Corporate and Consumer Businesses, and DNA's modern network infrastructure.

In his presentation, CEO Jukka Leinonen will consider Finland's telecommunications market, DNA's strengths and differentiating factors, and present DNA's progress in achieving its strategic goals.

"Customer satisfaction is the key element of our strategy and we work continuously towards ensuring that we can provide even better customer experiences. Our key pillars support the creation of an outstanding customer experience: our modern networks, motivated and customer-orientated staff, advanced data analytics, as well as our culture as a challenger, which is reflected in our cost-effectiveness and agility. DNA's first year as a listed company has went extremely well especially from the perspective of our strategic objectives. Our service revenue has developed well and our operative free cash flow has grown faster than those of our competitors. In addition, both customer and employee satisfaction have developed extremely positively. We will explore these themes further during our capital markets day," comments Jukka Leinonen, CEO of DNA.

Financial objectives remain the same

DNA's medium-term financial goals remain unchanged. The profit guidance for 2017, which was updated on 13 October 2017, will also remain the same. Our financial goals are presented on our website at dna.fi/investors.
