Risks and uncertainty factors

Peab’s business is exposed to operational and financial risks. The impact of these risks on Peab’s result and position depends on how well the day-to-day business is handled in the company. In addition, Peab faces circumstantial risks such as developments in the economy and altered conditions like changes in laws and regulations and other political decisions.

Handling operational risks is a constant ongoing process since there are always a large number of projects that are beginning, up and running and ending. Operational risks are taken care of in the line organization in each business area. Peab’s business is to a large extent project related. Grey areas concerning contract terms can lead to borderline issues followed by negotiations with customers.

The financial risks are connected to tying up capital and the need for capital, primarily in the form of interest rate risk and refinancing risk. Financial risks are dealt with on Group level. For further information on risks and uncertainty factors, see the 2017 Annual Report.
