President and CEO Peter Wallin comments:

"The housing market remained strong with healthy demand for newly produced homes.Together with more projects started, this lays the foundation for our growth. A favourable project and market mix had a positive impact on the gross margin for the quarter, which is why earnings strengthened significantly despite lower net sales. Our objective is to improve profitability through cost control and more efficient governance and production, which is gradually being reflected in our figures.

The wind down of the Danish operations was a first step in the ongoing strategic review. The process of divesting the remaining land bank in Copenhagen has been initiated, and interest is significant.

We have refinanced and increased our Green Financing Framework, which provides us with greater scope for action and a more balanced capital structure. This is further proof of the integrated approach and long-term perspective in our work on developing and financing sustainable homes for our customers. We have also refined our project portfolio for the future."
