Jesper Göransson, CEO at Peab, said, “Our business model with four complementary business areas, which all have stable development and profitability, gives Peab a good position in the current market.
“A positive second quarter has led to improvements in the form of higher net sales and margin for the first half-year. Greater order backlog with longer production time, a well-dimensioned development rights portfolio, positive market forecasts and a strong financial position spells good conditions for Peab in the coming years.”
