Year-end Report January-December 2019
A quarter pervaded by transactions and strong order bookings.
Order bookings amounted to SEK 2,969 million (1,000)
Income amounted to SEK 2,253 million (1,991)
The operating loss amounted to SEK 97 million (profit 509)
Cash flow from operating activities amounted to SEK 83 million (264). Cash flow was affected adversely by investments of SEK 157 million in the production of tenant-owner apartments and the Karlastaden project
The loss for the period amounted to SEK 63 million (profit 572)
The final settlement of the remaining additional purchase consideration for the Säve site strengthened the cash and bank balances by SEK 300 million and had a negative effect on operating profit by SEK 90 million
Order bookings amounted to SEK 8,601 million (4,692) and the order backlog was SEK 8,943 million (6,382)
Income amounted to SEK 6,725 million (6,516)
The operating loss amounted to SEK 84 million (profit 595)
Cash flow from operating activities amounted to an outflow of SEK 645 million (inflow 265). Cash flow was affected adversely by investments of SEK 484 million in the production of tenant-owner apartments and the Karlastaden project
The loss for the period amounted to SEK 82 million (profit 604)
Recalculated in accordance with the former accounting principle regarding tenant-owner apartments projects and assuming the Karlastaden project as external, income would have instead amounted to SEK 7,228 million and the operating loss would have been SEK 29 million.
The Board of Directors confirms the Company's dividend policy but chooses to await the outcome of current transactions before recommending a dividend for 2019 in the Notice to attend the Annual General Meeting.
Ola Serneke, CEO Serneke Group, comments:
- Both within the Company and externally, 2019 was a year marked by major challenges. The year also reflected the Company's view that having the courage to change is crucial, even though decisions may be difficult at that moment. We have vigorously addressed aspects bringing long-term organizational improvement and resulting in a more profitable company.
- Factors impacting earnings negatively included: capacity that has been kept on "standby" at Karlastaden, our long-term initiative in collaboration agreements, the earnings of the civil engineering operations, the restructuring costs for implementing the new organization, amended accounting principles and, last but not least, the final settlement in the sale of the Säve flygplats site. The combined negative impact on earnings of these circumstances in 2019 amounts to approximately SEK 380 million, and to about SEK 2.3 billion in sales.
