Interim report January-September 2020

The Wästbygg Group presents its interim report today for the period January-September.

– The figures for the third quarter of the year are now ready and it is a pleasure to once again present a strong report. Based on segment reporting, i.e. taking account of revenue recognition applied over time in self-developed tenant-owner projects, we report an operating profit of SEK 67 million for the quarter. This is almost twice as much as the same period last year. New orders during the quarter have been good and have partially compensated for the weaker than normal level of new orders that we experienced during the second quarter, say Jörgen Andersson, CEO of Wästbygg Gruppen AB.

As of the interim report for the period January-June 2020, the Group reports revenues and results for project development of owner-occupied flats upon completion. In addition revenue recognition for these projects is reported over time in the segment report, as this provides a clearer picture of the Group´s financial position at each individual reporting occasion. See Note 2 on page 19 for further information.
