Aryzta said it had made solid progress with disposal of non-core assets and that it still planned to dispose of its stake in French retail group Picard.“A significantly improved capital structure will provide Aryzta with the means to continue to take the necessary steps to reposition the business and deliver on our strategy,” said Aryzta chief executive Kevin Toland.“Over the medium term, we expect to generate significant cash flow, which will be applied towards continued net debt reduction and to resource selective growth opportunities.”In April, Aryzta appointed former Frieslandcampina chief operating officer Gregory Sklikas as CEO of its European business.last_img
