Guarantee risk reserve

Refers to the estimated cost of remedying faults and deficiencies in finished projects that arise while the project is under warranty and rental guarantees. Resources are consumed during the guarantee period of the project which is generally two to five years. As the effect of the point in time for payment is not material expected future disbursements are not valued at their current value. Provisions for guarantee risks have been made in all business areas.

Re-establishment costs

Refers to restoration costs in Industry operations for gravel pits and rock quarries after termination of operations.The provision grows in relation to the amount quarried and is reversed after restoration is complete. The reserved sum is expected to be used successively after operations are terminated. The estimated restoration time is 1 to 15 years. Our calculation of reserved amounts is based on estimated future payments for restoration and reflects Peab’s best assessment taking risks in cash flows into consideration.
