Continuous improvements and profitable growth

Third quarter, July–September 2022

  • Operating revenue amounted to SEK 2,373 million (2,034), an increase of 16.7 percent mainly due to acquisitions in Sweden and Finland from prior periods, but also higher occupancy in underlying operations.
  • Organic growth was 4.0 percent (3.0). All business areas, except Personal Assistance, are contributing. The largest contribution came from Elderly Care and Individual & Family.
  • Operating profit amounted to SEK 171m (192), a decrease of 10.9 percent. The decrease is mainly due to increased cost from inflation totalling approximately SEK 11m and continuous shortage of staff. Adjusted for non-recurring costs for adaptation of central functions, operating profit amounted to SEK 175m (192).
  • Net profit after tax for the period amounted to SEK 104m (123).
  • Basic and diluted earnings per share for the period amounted to SEK 2.17 (2.55).
  • Cash flow for the period amounted to SEK -75m (-42). Operating cash flow amounted to SEK 124m (180), a decrease of 31.3 percent attributable to lower result and working capital tied up related to acquisitions and investments in new units.
