Statement from President and CEO Eva Nygren:
In the first half of 2012, Rejlers has seen a positive order inflow and growth within all segments. The Group experienced growth of 16 per cent, of which three quarters was organic growth. The market prospects are mainly positive, but weak economic development in Europe is affecting parts of the operations. The market climate in Finland is improving but still remains slightly weaker than in Sweden and Norway.
Swedish operations have continued to see stable organic growth in the region of 14 per cent. In Norway, operations are experiencing positive growth, both organically and through acquisitions within energy and telecommunications. Finland has achieved the most growth, with a 27 per cent increase in revenue, primarily through the acquisition of operations from Ramboell. Increased demand for our services, primarily within energy, has contributed to the much improved operating profit in Finland.
Rejlers' profit for the quarter was affected by non-recurring costs incurred for the conference that will be held in August. All employees are invited to take part and this is an important initiative in terms of employee development and brand development for continued consolidation and growth.
During my first three months as CEO, I have encountered a solid company with a strong corporate culture, great commitment and high-level expertise. Rejlers has great potential to continue its development and achieve the goals set for 2015.
