Interim Report January-June 2022 - Continued healthy market, focus on profitable growth

The underlying performance in two of our three segments is good. We are seeing a positive trend with regard to utilisation rate and hourly rates, along with lower overheads and a more efficient organisation. EBITA amounted to SEK 14.8 million (23.5) in the quarter, which equates to an EBITA margin of 6.0 percent (8.5). Final reconciliation from Tillväxtverket, relating to short-time work allowance in 2020,  have affected EBITA negatively by SEK 3.5 million. Discontinued operations have affected EBITA negatively by SEK 3.5 million. Together, these two items amount to SEK 7 million, corresponding to 2.8 percentage points on the EBITA margin. Net revenue totalled SEK 245 million (278). The decrease is mainly due to divested and discontinued operations in 2021.
