Positive utilization trend closes out the year


The last quarter of the year has been characterized by intensified sales work in parallel with a retained focus on decreasing costs and increasing revenue. Net sales for the quarter decreased by 7.5 percent, with an adjusted EBITA margin of 8.1 percent. Net sales were SEK 1,824.0 (1,972.9) million and the EBITA profit, adjusted for acquisition and integration costs, was SEK 147.7 (179.3) million. The trend towards stabilizing utilization has continued during the fourth quarter, as a result of the actions taken. The Board proposes a divided of SEK 5.20 per share (7.50).

“The Nordic consultancy market has challenged us and other players during the final quarter of the year. We continue to focus our attention on initiatives and actions that promote sound long-term development and protect profitability in the short term. This means increased pressure in sales-driving activitiesand a retained focus on lowering costs and increasing revenue. The actions taken are having a positive impact on both utilization and operative costs, and creating the conditions for long-term growth and higher margins,” says Per Wallentin, CEO and President.

During the quarter, we have continued working to implement the targeted actions identified as necessary to increase profitability in our four business areas. This includes both decreased costs, for instance for travel, conferences, education, and work tools, and continued optimization of staffing.

“On a weaker market, there is a stronger focus on streamlining processes and ensuring profitability – efforts that create value in the long term as well. Through the efforts and changes made during the year, we have created a stronger foundation and are well-prepared to take on the challenges and opportunities that we are facing,” concludes Per Wallentin.
