Statement by the President and CEO

"Our significantly improved EBITA for the first half of 2019 shows the strength in the on-going transformation of Rejlers into a more efficient and more profitable company. In the second quarter, we launched our new strategy and also began delivering on it, in the form of our largest acquisition ever.

It is pleasing that we continued to deliver improved profit in the second quarter compared with the year-before period – despite less available working hours. Our positive trend continues. The business in Finland developed particularly well with clearly better earnings in the second quarter. In Norway, the journey of positive improvement continued in the wake of last year’s significant restructuring. In Sweden, the new, combined division Industry & Infra had a fine start with higher utilisation. As a result of a lower rate of investment in the telecom operator chain, the earnings trend in Sweden slowed somewhat", says Viktor Svensson, President and CEO, Rejlers AB.
