  • Gross margin excluding costs in Sweden amounted to 14.3 per cent (12.9)
  • Gross margin including costs in Sweden amounted to 12.6 per cent (12.9)
  • Operating profit before items affecting comparability was SEK 556 M (486)
  • Operating margin before items affecting comparability was 5.8 per cent (5.8)

  • Number of housing units sold was 2,107 (3,233)
  • Number of production starts was 2,249 (2,765)
  • For full-year 2022, we revised our estimate for the number of production starts from 4,200 to 3,000. The adjustment is a result of a weaker market and a continued delay in granted building permits.

Significant events after the end of the period

  • On 7 October, Bonava announced that we had signed an agreement for the sale of our subsidiary in Russia for a purchase price of approximately EUR 98 M (SEK 1.1 Bn)

* Recognised revenue, profit and key figures pertain to continuing operations, excluding St. Petersburg.

President and CEO Peter Wallin comments:

"Our improved project management has enabled us to address challenges including cost increases and material shortages. The underlying improvement in the project margin in ongoing projects is significant where gross margin in the quarter amounts to 15.9 per cent (13.5). We have charged the gross profit in the Swedish operation with SEK 155 M in costs based on the prevailing market situation where a number of projects will not be started why we have costs related to impairment losses on previously capitalised project engineering costs and fixed assets. Gross margin including these costs amounts to 11.1 per cent.

We have become more selective regarding production starts and investments in building rights in order to balance the risks that an increasingly weak market entail. This also creates scope to be able to act on the opportunities that arise going forward. We have a challenging time ahead of us, but I am convinced that we have the right competence and team in place to meet the challenges ahead."
