INSIDE INFORMATION: HONKARAKENNE HAS COMPLETED THE CHANGE NEGOTIATIONS
Honkarakenne Oyj has concluded the change negotiations initiated in May, which concern the company's entire personnel, with the exception of the members of the Executive Board and the director of human resources.
In its meeting, the Executive Board has made decisions related to personnel reductions based on economic, productional and operational reorganization grounds. The number of personnel in domestic business, production and support functions, as well as work tasks, will be adjusted to reflect the current market and demand situation. In connection with the reorganization of production, the company evaluates the possible repatriation of subcontracted products.

As a result of the decisions made in the company, 9 employees, 10 clerical employees and 3 senior clerical employees have been dismissed within the notice periods and they have been released from work.

As a result of the decisions and measures taken, the company will record costs of EUR 0.4 million due to redundancies, personnel costs and change security services in the income statement in June 2023. According to the company's definition, costs arising from reorganization are adjustment items that do not affect the company's adjusted result.
