Financial effects 2003

Financial effects 2003 Skandia's result is affected by external factors such as changes in the stock market and interest rates. Future revenues, which are based on fund values, increase or decrease as a result of these factors. According to information presented in conjunction with the interim report for the third quarter of 2003, a 1% increase in the stock market would have a one-time effect on the operating result of SEK +60 million and a 1% decrease would have a one-time effect on the operating result of SEK -57 million. Through the third quarter of 2003, financial effects were positive in the amount of SEK 384 million. Financial effects for the fourth quarter are expected to be positive and are estimated to be in the range of SEK 600 million to SEK 700 million. Comparison figures To facilitate comparison, the group overview presented in connection with the 2003 Year-End Report (as in the 2002 Annual Report) will be presented exclusive of the result of discontinued operations. This format is shown in the appended tables on pages 2 and 3. By discontinued operations is meant American Skandia, the banking operation in Switzerland, and Skandia Japan. On 11 February it was announced that Sampo has made a bid for the shares in If P&C Insurance. In accordance with the applicable accounting rules, as a result of this the holding in If will be revalued by SEK 1.5 billion during the fourth quarter of 2003. This revaluation will be included in investment income and thus also in the result of operations. However, the result of the sale of the Japanese operation, which was completed on 2 February 2003, will be reported during the first quarter of 2004. Skandia's year-end report for 2003 will be released on 27 February 2004.
