  • EBITDA amounted to SEK 19.8 M (0.3), an increase of SEK 19.5 M.

Changed outlook for operating costs

  • The monthly cost run rate for operating costs before depreciation and amortisation during the second quarter stood on average at SEK 31.4 M, below the outlook given in the first quarter 2013 interim report, of approximately SEK 33.5 M.
