Riksgälden: Surplus for Swedish central government in August

Swedish central government payments resulted in a surplus of SEK 21.1 billion
in August. The Debt Office's forecast was a surplus of SEK 11.1 billion. The
difference is partly explained by a one-off payment that was made earlier
than expected, but also by slightly higher tax income and lower
disbursements.

The central government's primary borrowing requirement, excluding net lending,
was SEK 9.6 billion lower than forecast. The difference is partly explained
by payment displacements. In August Specialfastigheter AB returned SEK 2.1
billion to the government through a reduction of the share capital. This
payment was in the forecast for October. In addition, tax income was slightly
higher than forecast, while disbursements from among others the Swedish
Transport Administration and Sida were lower than expected.

The Debt Office's net lending to government agencies was SEK 1.3 billion lower
than calculated, which is mainly due to higher deposits from the Swedish
Pensions Agency.

Interest payments on central government debt amounted to SEK 4.0 billion,
which was SEK 0.9 billion higher than forecast.

For the twelve-month period up to the end of August 2015, central government
payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 65.9 billion.

Central government debt amounted to SEK 1,366 billion at the end of August
2015.

The outcome for September will be published on 7 October 2015, at 9:30 am.
