Skanska Nine Month Report, January to September 2002

SKANSKA NINE MONTH REPORT, JANUARY TO SEPTEMBER 2002 Improved earnings and increased cash flow · During the first nine months of 2002, the operating income of the Skanska Group rose to SEK 1,926 M (685) and the operating margin amounted to 1.8 (0.6) percent.. During the July to September period, operating income rose to SEK 876 M (-763) and the operating margin amounted to 2.5 (neg) percent. · During the nine month report period, income after financial items rose to SEK 1,062 M (-132) for the Group. This included SEK 45 M (1,414) in capital gains on the sale of properties. During the third quarter, income after financial items climbed to SEK 670 M (-1,208). This included SEK 1 M (92) in capital gains on sale of properties. · Operating income in U.S. operations climbed 34 percent during the third quarter. Meanwhile operating income improved in the Scandinavian and European market areas. · Due to the negative trend in stock markets during the third quarter, Skanska made pension provisions of SEK -43 M (-137), which were charged to the financial items. The Group has thus made provisions totaling SEK -377 M (-137) during the year. · Cash flow from business operations increased during the third quarter to SEK 1,124 M (312). During the first nine months of 2002, cash flow amounted to SEK -105 M (1,042). · Order backlog increased to SEK 145.5 billion from SEK 143.4 billion in the second quarter. Compared to last year, the Group order backlog declined, mainly as an effect of the decrease in the American business units working in building construction. Order bookings in U.S. operations amounted to SEK 14.5 billion (15.2). · Order bookings in the U.S. thus continued to increase quarterly, compared to the earlier quarters of the year. For the entire nine month report period, U.S. order bookings amounted to SEK 41.4 billion (53.9). [REMOVED GRAPHIC] Comments from the President and CEO of Skanska: "Earnings in the third quarter improved in all business units, with the exception of our South American unit Sade Skanska. Sade Skanska's profit is positive and the decline compared to last year is due to the sharp devaluation of the Argentinean peso and inflationary adjustments, not to operating problems. U.S. operations increased their earnings by 34 percent, mainly driven by an increased share of infrastructure construction in the contract mix and the fact that we completed a number of very successful projects during the third quarter. "Commercial construction - office and industrial premises - is generally decreasing around the world. In our judgment, this trend will not change the next few quarters, so we expect the net sales volume to decrease," says Stuart Graham, the new President and CEO of Skanska. "We are somewhat encouraged that we are now seeing the order bookings in our U.S. operations continue to increase, compared to the earlier quarters of the year. "The acquisition of California-based Yeager, which was finalized in September, makes Skanska one of the few American infrastructure builders with nationwide coverage. This is of great importance to us, since the American infrastructure market is expected to offer interesting opportunities the next few years. In the Nordic markets, growth is expected to accelerate in infrastructure next year, while the greatest potential in a somewhat longer perspective is found in the Czech Republic and in Poland," Mr. Graham says. "During the third quarter, we carried out no major property divestments. After the close of the report period, we signed a conditional agreement on divestment of the Grävlingen commercial project in downtown Stockholm at a purchase price of SEK 2.3 billion and with a capital gain of SEK 1.1 billion. This shows that our project development operations generate value-added even during more difficult economic conditions," Mr. Graham concludes. (See separate press release for more information.)
