  • The net result increased to MSEK 53 (36) or SEK 1.49 (1.26) per share.
  • The increase in net sales and the result is primarily due to the acquisition of LGI, which has been consolidated into the Elanders Group since the end of July 2016. With the same exchange rates and comparable units organic growth was three percent.
  • Operating cash flow amounted to MSEK -161 (3), of which -262 (0) consisted of increased working capital in the form of accounts receivable due to a repayment of a factoring debt. Cleared of this one-off effect and the purchase price of acquisitions, operating cash flow was MSEK 101 (37).
  • New financial goals have been drawn up and consist of goals for sales growth, EBITA margin, net debt / EBITDA and return on capital employed.
