Sales in Russia and Belarus account for about 20 percent of the company’s net sales calculated from the 2021 financial statements.

At the same time, Ponsse Plc withdraws its profit guidance for the current year. The new profit quidance is linked to the uncertainties caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and EU sanctions. The company announces that it will not provide new guidance for the current year. In accordance with the previous profit quidance, Group´s euro-denominated operating result in 2022 is estimated to be on a par with 2021.

In this challenging situation, Ponsse also strives to take care of the OOO Ponsse’s personnel.
