President and CEO Johanna Rastad comments on the quarter
”Adjusted operating profit in the third quarter is in line with the previous year, which can be summarised as a stable trend in which a clear improvement in profitability in Finland compensates for the decline in profit in Personal Assistance. Organic growth excluding Personal Assistance reaches over 9 percent in the quarter. We also managed to balance increased staff costs well with the help of price adjustments and an increased share of clients with complex needs in the individual and family programmes in all our Nordic countries.
In June, Humana won the legal proceedings concerning the permit for Humana Assistance, enabling us to continue to drive the business forward. Our business has suffered greatly and, although it will take some time to recover, the work is in full swing, led by a team clearly ready for rectification.”
