YA Holding AB makes SEK 50m goodwill impairment

YA Holding’s goodwill value as of December 31, 2018 has been subject to an impairment test in which a sensitivity analysis covering various scenarios has been conducted. Based on the outcome of this analysis and in the light of a weakened market environment and decreasing predictability, the Board of Directors has decided to write down the Group’s goodwill by SEK 50m, effective December 31, 2018.

In addition, YA Holding has received a group contribution of SEK 27m from YA Invest AB.

The Board of Directors has also decided to write down the value of subsidiary shares held by YA Holding AB by SEK 80m effective December 31, 2018. This has no effect on the Group accounts.

The balance sheet reflecting the write-down, as well the overall financial result of the Group, will be presented in the fourth quarter and full year report that is due to be published on February 22.
