After the end of the quarter, Humana signed an agreement for two more housing units with 60 apartments each, another in Norrtälje and one in Ängelholm. All units are expected to open in 2021.
- After the end of the quarter, Humana entered an agreement with Samhällsbyggnadsbolaget i Norden for the sale of 37 commercial properties in Finland, Sweden and Norway. The value of the property portfolio, which was transferred through a sale and leaseback transaction, amounts to SEK 468m.

President and CEO Rasmus Nerman comments on the quarter:
"The second quarter of the year was eventful and among Humana’s achievements are two acquisitions, two new contracts for elderly housing under own management (and an additional two after the end of the quarter) and that we saw effects from our sales initiatives in Individual & Family. Revenue is growing in line with our financial targets, but in terms of profits the quarter was weak, mainly due to costs for our various growth initiatives", Rasmus Nerman said.
"Humana’s operating revenue amounted to SEK 1.9bn during the quarter, an increase of 13 percent, which was primarily acquisition driven. We are pleased with the development in Personal Assistance, Elderly Care, the Norwegian operations and Arjessa in Finland and that our measures within Individual & Family are having an effect, but this is overshadowed by a weak development in our newly acquired Coronaria Hoiva and the burden of acquisition- and growth-related non-recurring costs making the quarterly profits weak", he said.
