Demand for eWork's services was good. The sales mix contained a higher proportion of outsourcing and takeover contracts, which explains the lower operating margin.
The first halfyear lived up to our expectations of continued growth with profitability. Sales increased by 31 percent compared with the very strong first half-year 2011. For the first time, net sales exceeded 3 billion kronor on a rolling four-quarter basis. Demand was relatively stable, although a little more irregular than previously. We have not noted any additional weakening further to the moderate slowdown experienced in the second half-year 2011.
