Onze code voor Corporate Governance

We passen de principes van een goed ondernemingsbestuur toe op ons IR-werk als een instrument om het concurrentievermogen van Proact te vergroten en om het vertrouwen van de kapitaalmarkt te vergroten. Dit betekent dat de onderneming op een efficiënte manier is georganiseerd met duidelijke verantwoordelijkheden, dat de financiële verslaglegging transparant is en dat de onderneming in alle opzichten optreedt als een verantwoordelijke onderneming.

Proact past de Zweedse corporate governance code toe. We rapporteren en motiveren en wijken af van de code in het Corporate Governance Report, volgens het principe in de code: “pas toe of leg uit”.

CEO's Statement

Het is zeer positief dat de gezonde ontwikkeling die we in het tweede kwartaal hebben gezien, zich in het derde kwartaal heeft voortgezet. We zien een groei van 17 procent ten opzichte van hetzelfde kwartaal vorig jaar, waarvan 7 procent organisch. De groei wordt voornamelijk gedreven door een grotere deal in Business Unit UK, en door goede groei in Nordics en East. Onze inkomsten in het kwartaal bedroegen 821 (701) miljoen SEK. De brutomarge in het kwartaal is licht gedaald, voornamelijk door een lagere marge in sommige systeemdeals, maar ook doordat Peopleware een lagere brutomarge heeft dan het gemiddelde van Proact. De combinatie van hoge verkopen en lagere verkoop- en administratiekosten leidde tot een aanzienlijke verbetering van de winstgevendheid in vergelijking met het voorgaande jaar. De aangepaste EBITA van 54,1 (36,9) miljoen SEK is het hoogste resultaat dat we in een derde kwartaal hebben gerapporteerd. De kostenreducties zijn het resultaat van het kostenprogramma dat we eerder dit jaar hebben doorgevoerd, in combinatie met aanzienlijk lagere reis- en andere verkoopkosten als gevolg van de pandemie.
