Ratos is delivering in line with the financial targets.

“A year ago, I summarised 2021 as a turbulent year, mainly due to the pandemic. 2022 turned out to be even more challenging, with a war close to our borders and high inflation. Despite this, Ratos delivered a strong performance for the year, with organic growth and strategic acquisitions on our path to becoming a more homogeneous group. Also, several high-profile contracts were secured in the Ratos Group that will accelerate the transition to a more sustainable society. Our acquisitions during the year were once again carried out within infrastructure and the Industry business area. These areas will be our focus going forward,” says Jonas Wiström, President and CEO, Ratos.

Sustainability is an intergread part of Ratos business model and a company owned by Ratos will strive to be an ESG leader in its respective industry.
