Stable quarter but greater uncertainty

”The first quarter 2020 must be considered unique. We entered the year with stable market prospects but when we closed the books the picture was dramatically different. The underlying profit from our business areas was stable in the quarter and Peab’s good financial position, high level of orders and a tried and true business model is the solid platform we stand on to face growing uncertainty,” says Jesper Göransson, CEO and President of Peab.
