Second quarter 2016
Improved underlying profitability on lower volumes
In the second quarter we were able to continue the improvement of our underlying profitability despite declining sales, thanks to positive cost development. Sales decreased by 7% to SEK 78.9 billion. Despite this, the underlying operating income increased to SEK 6.1 billion, corresponding to an operating margin of 7.8%.
