According to Valdo Kalm, chairman of the management board of Tallinna Sadam, despite the
difficult times, the company continues to earn a decent profit. Different business areas balance
each other, making the group as a whole resistant to the risks of the external environment,
which is why we are still ready to pay dividends and at the same time continue with
investments. "At the moment, there is a strong focus on cost savings while preparing and
launching new growth projects such as offshore wind farms quay and real estate development.
At the same time, the strong liquidity position allows paying dividends in the same amount as
last year," said Kalm.
