Riksgälden: Surplus for Swedish central government in April

Swedish central government payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 14.5 billion
in April, in line with the Debt Office's forecast of SEK 14.0 billion. Higher
than expected tax income was offset by lower income from dividends and higher
interest payments on central government debt.

Tax income was about SEK 8 billion higher than forecast, mainly due to higher
supplementary tax payments. Dividend income was SEK 4 billion lower than
expected as dividends from the Riksbank and Telia, which were projected in
April, instead will be paid in May and October, respectively.

The Debt Office's net lending to government agencies was SEK 0.6 billion lower
than forecast.

Interest payments on central government debt were SEK 4.9 billion higher than
forecast. This is mainly due to capital losses in connection with switch
auctions in inflation-linked bonds which were higher than assumed in the Debt
Office's February forecast.

For the twelve-month period up to the end of April 2016, central government
payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 23 billion.

Central government debt amounted to SEK 1,305 billion at the end of April.

The outcome for May will be published on 8 June at 9.30 a.m.
