CEO´s comments
We experienced very strong underlying demand in the second quarter, with good growth in all business areas resulting in an organic increase in sales of 10 percent. The shortage of components has been handled in exemplary manner by our companies and is judged to have had only a limited impact on the Group’s overall capacity to deliver to customers during the period. The market situation, combined with continued good cost control and well-handled price increases from suppliers gave record high margins and gave an EBITA growth of 39 percent for the quarter.

It is very satisfying to see our business model demonstrate its strength. Our entrepreneurial companies, which operate in close proximity to the market and maintain strong relationships with suppliers, have again shown their resilience, continuing to foster optimum conditions for sustained profitable growth, concludes Niklas Stenberg, CEO.
