Financial position and cash flow
Reclassication of property
After a revision of Peab’s property portfolio it was decided that some property previously reported as project and development property, i.e. inventory properties, will instead be classified as operations property or investment property, in the case where there is no plan to divest the property and it is expected to remain in the Group for the foreseeable future. For this reason, as of 1 January 2017 properties for a total recorded value of SEK 619 million have been reclassified as operations property and properties for a total value of SEK 629 million have been reclassified as investment property. The reclassification of these properties is forward-looking and therefore no comparable figures have been recalculated.

Interest-bearing net debt amounted to SEK 2,707 million compared to SEK 1,862 million at the end of 2016. Net debt has been affected by paid dividends in the second quarter, as well as increased investments in project and developement property and machines.
