CEO's comments:

2015 was a good year for Coor. We delivered strong organic growth,
stable operating profit and a strong cash flow. We have extended 90
per cent of the customer contracts we negotiated during the year and
continued to launch innovative service solutions with a high degree
of technological content for our customers. The Board of Directors
proposes a dividend for 2015 of SEK 2 per share.

In conjunction with Coor's IPO in June 2015, we explained in many
settings that an investment in Coor is an investment in a
market-leading service company with growth potential, a strong cash
flow and low level of tied-up capital. These circumstances form the
grounds for long-term, stable shareholder dividends. Our customer
value is directly linked to the value we create for our shareholders.
In the fourth quarter, we delivered growth in sales and profit, at
the same time as strengthening our margins compared with the two
preceding quarters. Operating cash flow also saw improvement during
the quarter. In summary, we can report a strong conclusion to a
strong year.

Strong organic growth
Sales grew organically by 6 per cent during the fourth quarter to SEK
2,042 (1,967) million, and sales for the full year were SEK 7,482
(6,844) million, corresponding to organic growth of all of 10 per
cent. This is significantly more than is exhibited by the market as a
whole, and well in excess of our target of 4-5 per cent organic
growth per year.

The most substantial growth was seen in the Norwegian operations, but
Sweden and Denmark also provided positive contributions. Growth has
primarily been driven by the large number of new contracts we
initiated in 2014 and 2015, not least the large IFM contract signed
with Statoil on-shore in 2014, while increased sales to existing
customers in the fourth quarter were also a contributing factor. The
most noteworthy of the new contracts we signed during the financial
year 2015 include the contracts with Statoil off-shore and Frontica
Business Solutions/Aker Solutions in Norway.

I would also like to emphasize the large number of existing contracts
we extended and expanded as one of the highlights of the year. A full
90 per cent of the contract volume negotiated during the year,
totalling almost SEK 2.9 billion, has been extended. Large customers
that have chosen to continue and, in some cases, expand their
collaboration with Coor include Ericsson, the Danish Police, AB
Volvo, Volvo Car Group, Saab AB, Borealis and Vasakronan.

Stable profitability with numerous new and renegotiated contracts
Operating profit for the full year amounted to SEK 374 (354) million,
an increase of 6 per cent compared with previous year. The operating
margin improved on the two preceding quarters and amounted to 5.4
(5.7) per cent in the fourth quarter. An important explanation behind
the difference between this quarter and the previous year is the
decrease in pension rebates in Sweden compared with recent years.
Discounting for this effect, the Group's operating margin in the
fourth quarter would be in line with the previous year.

Coor's target is to generate an average operating margin of
approximately 5.5 per cent over the course of an economic cycle. For
the full year 2015, the operating margin was 5.0 (5.2) per cent,
which should be considered relative to the high number of new and
renegotiated contracts that we have managed during the year. These
contracts usually build up to full profitability during their first 6
to 18 months. The underlying profitability in our contracts is
stable, and maturing contract volumes will constitute a solid base
for our work to strengthen margins during the coming years.

Strong cash conversion
Cash flow remains strong and working capital has been reduced by SEK
69 million during the year, which together give a cash conversion of
104 per cent for the full year 2015 (refer to Note 9 for further
information). A stable cash flow is a strategic priority for us at
Coor, as it forms the basis for converting our customer value to
shareholder value, in the form of long-term, stable dividends.

In a turbulent world, our home markets in the Nordic region continue
to be stable with underlying GDP growth in all of the Nordic
countries except Finland.

Market prospects for outsourced FM services continue to be favourable.
We are witnessing a stable demand and high activity levels in all
markets, and we are in a good position to achieve continued growth
with good cash flows.
