A strong first quarter · Quarterly net sales increased by 12 percent and EBITA excluding items affecting comparability improved by 156 percent, with a strong contribution from business areas East, West and North. · Continued good cash flow from operating activities, despite economic uncertainty. · Strong financial flexibility enables continued acquisitions in identified Swedish growth regions.

Magnus Persson, CEO Bellman Group, comments:

Bellman group got off to a good start in 2023, despite global economic uncertainty and increasingly challenging market conditions.  Both sales and earnings grew compared to the previous year. We see continued investments in major infrastructure projects in the country’s growth regions, especially in western Sweden and in Norrland, which provides our business with stability.

We have established a new organization with four business areas to further support geographical cooperation, focusing on comprehensive solutions for our customers. This is a change that, in addition to increased efficiency and stronger customer offerings, is expected to lead to even more joint projects.
