cEO Comment

“Strong quarter with continued good demand”

The market situation continued to be good for most of Lagercrantz’s businesses in the second quarter. This resulted in high organic revenue growth of 11% in the quarter and a strong order book at the end of the quarter. All in all, we delivered a quarterly profit after net financial items of MSEK 214, an increase of 37% from the previous year. Earnings per share increased to SEK 3.25 on a moving 12-month basis and the return on equity reached an all-time high of 32%. The strong development was also due to the fact that we completed five excellent acquisitions for the Group during the first six months with a total business volume of MSEK 855, equivalent to approximately 15% of the Group’s total sales.
