President and CEO Johanna Rastad comments on the quarter:
”The Humana Group reported strong growth during the fourth quarter and the overall underlying operations were positive. Operating profit, on the other hand, was weak. A large part of the decline in profit was linked to the Individual & Family operations, in which we completed a major adaptation and quality assurance initiative that involves adapting ourselves to increasingly challenging needs across society. The effects of the pandemic also weighed down profit during the quarter. The full year 2021 can be summarised financially as solid, with stable growth (5 percent), profitability (6 percent) and debt (4.6x EBITDA). We are close to our financial targets, but we have more work to do to fully achieve them.”
