The company’s revenues were up 1.77% year-on-year to SEK32.7 billion (€3.32 billion), while its operating profit increased 12.7% to SEK1.43 billion (€145.55 million).

Jesper Göransson, CEO, Peab, said the company’s business model gave it a solid position in the market.

He said, “The improved profit in the third quarter stems from a strong result in industry and housing development while the rest of the business shows stable results.
