Risk & uncertainty factors
Elanders divides risks into circumstantial risk (business cycle sensitivity and the future of the products/services), financial risk (currency, interest, financing and credit risk) as well as business risk (customer concentration, operational risk, risks in operating expenses, contracts and disputes).
For more detailed information than given below, as well as a sensitivity analysis, please see pages 49-50 in the 2016 Annual Report.

The external factors that have the greatest impact on Elanders operations are global economy and the future for the group’s products and services. Since these factors are outside of group control we continuously work to adjust operations to meet the new conditions.
The greatest financial risks for Elanders are currency risk, interest risk and financing risk.
Elanders encounters risks in operations daily and normally these are within the Group’s control. Group Management’s close collaboration with the different group operations is a key factor in controlling these risks.
