Michael Berglin, CEO Serneke Group, comments:

“Our result for the quarter was clearly affected by the market situation, in which a decline in transactions is one example. Our overall business is dependent on sales from our project development operations, to generate earnings and free up capital. We need to increase the activities that build conditions for continuous transactions. We also seeing effects in the contracting operations associated with the global situation: material prices have been exerting pressure on everyone for a long time, causing a generally difficult situation in the industry. The earnings of our contracting operations were impacted negatively in the amount of SEK 25 million for the quarter by the bankruptcy of a subcontractor in our northern region.”

“The changed situation in which we find ourselves requires us to act and demonstrate our resolve. During the autumn, we have begun to implement a program in which we are implementing strong measures on a number of points: we are reorganizing and reducing our costs while streamlining our mission and facilitating governance. We are also limiting our investments in projects developed in-house, where we currently judge our market share as weak, particularly with regard to housing projects.”
