  • Adjusted EBITA was MSEK 81 (113) and the adjusted EBITA margin was 3.1 (4.0) percent.
  • The coronavirus had a very tangible negative effect on net sales and the result in the first quarter and is expected to have a considerably greater negative effect in the second quarter.
  • The Group currently has a good liquidity buffer, both in the form of existing cash as well as unutilized credit lines, that amounts to more than SEK 1.2 billion.
  • The result before tax was MSEK 28 (73).
  • The net result was MSEK 15 (50) or SEK 0.43 (1.40) per share.
  • Operating cash flow was MSEK 356 (390), of which acquisitions were MSEK 0 (-5).
  • In light of the enhanced financial uncertainty due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, and as a precautionary measure, the Board considers it motivated to withdraw the dividend proposal. The Board will therefore instead propose that the Annual General Meeting on 25 June 2020 decide that no dividend be distributed.
