Significant events after the reporting period

  • On 31 January 2023, the Swedish Health and Social Care Inspectorate (IVO) revoked Humana Assistans AB’s permit to conduct operations. According to IVO’s decision, Humana Assistans AB must cease its operations 10 February 2023 at the latest. The company appealed IVO’s decision to the Administrative Court and received suspension on 7 February. IVO may appeal the received suspension to the Court of Appeal. On February 7, the Swedish Social Insurance Board announced that payments of assistance compensation will be made directly to the customer, which increases administration and delays payments. The situation that has arisen may, in the event of a negative development from this situation, such as major customer losses or a revoked permit, affect the terms and conditions and/or the structure of the company's financing. See page 13 in the report for more information. 
  • In February 2023, the MAT (medication-assisted treatment) company Solstenen i Skåne AB was acquired. Full year revenues amount to approximately SEK 46m.
  • Humana’s Board proposes to the 2023 AGM that no dividend be paid for the 2021 financial year.

President and CEO Johanna Rastad comments

” The year has passed, and although this report mainly refers to the last quarter of 2022, we must commence with IVO’s revocation of our permit in Humana Assistans AB on the last of January 2023. The announcement shocked both Humana's organisation as well as assistant recipients outside of the organisation. The Administrative Court has granted our request for suspension, which means that we can continue to pursue the assistance operations while the issue is decided in court. We believe that the decision is deeply unfair and wrong for both our customers and employees. As the industry's largest provider, we have taken, and continue to take great responsibility in quality assuring and developing our business.”
