“Net sales in Peab grew by over three percent in 2019 to SEK 54 billion and adjusted for costs for acquisitions as well as eliminations, profitability has been strengthened. The proposed extra distribution demonstrates Peab’s capacity to, through our four collaborating business areas, generate substantial results for our shareholders. At the same time it creates the foundation for even more value creation in two separate companies in the future. Based on stable market prospects we are moving ahead in 2020 by finalizing the YIT operations acquisition, which is expected to be completed during the first half-year”, says Peab´s CEO Jesper Göransson.
