Interim report for the fourth quarter and full-year 2022

Stable end to the year

“2022 was more challenging than expected, but we are nonetheless well-equipped for the future, with a good order backlog, healthy demand in many segments, many stable businesses and a strong financial position”, says Tomas Carlsson, President and CEO, NCC.

  • Orders received lower, within natural variation, strong order backlog
  • Lower operating profit for the full year, primarily driven by Industry and Building Sweden, also by Building Nordics during the quarter
  • One property sale recognized in profit during the quarter
  • Good cash flow before financing for the quarter, but negative for the full year, driven by lower earnings and fewer property projects recognized in profit
  • Earnings per share SEK 10.29, compared with the target of SEK 16.00 per share in 2023
  • The Board of Directors has proposed a dividend of SEK 6.00 per share (6.00) for 2022, to be paid on two occasions, see page 14 in the report
