Michael Berglin, CEO Serneke Group, comments:

"The continued stabilization of our contracting operations and additional ongoing transactions are the two factors primarily contributing to the Group's positive operating profit of SEK 108 million (loss 139) for the period. We are moving in the right direction and are seeing the effects of our ongoing development efforts. However, increased competition and price pressure demand that we continue to develop our customer offering and our deliveries."

"During the quarter, we took another historic step in one of Sweden's largest and most exciting urban development projects, Karlastaden. Our collaboration with Balder is continuing and we have now agreed to jointly develop another three urban blocks in the district. Of course, I find it extremely gratifying that we are continuing to make further structural transactions among our major investments and that, in addition to the immediate positive impact on our profit, this also provides continued good income in the form of new contracting agreements and possible profits from our joint project company."
