Fredrik Zöögling, CEO and President of ProfilGruppen, comments:

”The coming decrease in demand that our customers signaled in the end of the first quarter made us take powerful measures quickly. The decrease turned out not to be as substantial as assessed and we have been able to run operations on a higher activity level than we thought, which is gratifying. Despite support for short-term layoffs and other measures we have not been able to adjust the costs to the decrease in turnover and the operating profit in the second quarter of the year is barely a profit. The activity level at many of our customers has been high also in the second quarter and several important framework agreements have been prolonged, which creates confidence.“
