Fourth-quarter earnings are affected more than expected by measures taken to
liquidate and restructure unprofitable operations. In addition, operations in
parts of the industry had a declining capacity utilization during the quarter.
Consequently, there is a sharp decrease in profit for the fourth quarter of 2013
compared to last year. Operating profit for the full year 2013 is estimated at
between SEK 65 and 70 million.
We have conducted a strategic review of the business during the year to create
opportunities for continued growth and increased profitability. This has
resulted in restructuring to adapt the organization to current market
conditions. We are continually working to adjust our cost base.
Revenue for the quarter shows a continued growth. We see a strong demand for our
services in the Nordic countries in the areas of energy and infrastructure.
Demand for building related services in metropolitan areas is also positive. The
industry market is more difficult to predict, especially in Finland, but is
expected to improve in Sweden.

be followed up with a telephone conference. Information about this will be
provided in a press release shortly.
