  • New financial and non-financial targets established, and an effect on earnings of SEK -150 to -200 M is recognised as items affecting comparability in the fourth quarter as a result of the strategic review

President and CEO Peter Wallin comments:

"The quarter displayed a stable trend toward increased efficiency and profitability. The robust economic recovery, with favourable market conditions, resulted in healthy demand in all of Bonava's markets. Net sales were higher and operating profit improved substantially, since the number of housing units to investors recog-nised in profit increased.

The gross margin strengthened as a result of an improved project and market mix. We also continued to show good control of our overheads, which supported an improvement in operating profit. We have continued to manage rising prices, shortages of input goods and challenges in the supply chain without any major impact on our ongoing projects.

The strategic analysis that was initiated as a result of my taking office as President and CEO has now been completed. From 2022, the business will be managed on the basis of six targets, two of which are financial. One of the targets is to more than double earnings before tax to SEK 2.2 Bn in 2026.

With raised and clarified targets, and an updated strategy including increased investments in building rights, we are steering our operations towards profitable growth and sustainable value creation throughout the Group."
