Fourth quarter and full year 2016
Improved underlying performance on lower volumes
“2016 was a year with somewhat lower volumes. Our revenues declined by 3% to SEK 302 bn. Nonetheless, our profitability improved with an adjusted operating margin of 7.0% for the full year 2016. This reflects our ability to manage volume changes in different regions as well as continued cost reductions and productivity improvements. The fourth quarter followed the pattern of previous quarters with somewhat improved profitability on lower volumes. Adjusted operating income was SEK 5,660 M, corresponding to a margin of 6.9%,” says Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO.
