Ambea has achieved strong growth in combination with high quality and today has around 200 Swedish municipalities as clients. The need for care is large and growing, and we want to contribute to solve this challenge for society. We therefore view the listing, with broadened ownership and clear transparency requirements, as essential in our ambition to contribute to the development of care in our community and have a positive view of the growth opportunities which have been made available by the IPO.
