Interim report for the first quarter 2020

Strong cash flow and continued improvement

“NCC had a strong start to the year, with improved earnings and strong cash flow. There is continued high activity in NCC despite the Corona crisis,” says Tomas Carlsson, President and CEO of NCC.

  • Improved earnings compared with the preceding year in a quarter that always has a seasonally weak result due to the low level of activity, primarily in the Industry business area, during the winter months
  • Strong orders received and strong order backlog, as well as somewhat higher net sales than in the preceding year
  • Strong cash flow from operating activities, slightly more than SEK 1 billion
  • The effects of the Corona crisis, as of the report date, have not caused any significant disruptions at Group level, although some projects are addressing minor disruptions

First quarter 2020

  • Orders received were at the same level as previous year with SEK 15,458 M (15,501)
  • Net sales rose to SEK 11,766 M (11,434)
