* Adjusted key ratios are excluding items affecting comparability for 2021 and 2020. Key ratios for 2020 have been adjusted for effects related to the cost reduction program carried out by the Group during 2020. The cost reduction program was initiated during the second quarter of 2020 and successfully finalized during the fourth quarter of 2020. The fourth quarter of 2020 showed a positive impact, due to the costs for the program ending up lower than previously reported. To facilitate comparability, adjustment for items affecting comparability has also been made for 2021, partly a negative impact on the result of SEK 8.1 million related to the divestment of Bristol and partly costs of SEK 4.6 million related to restructuring of parts of the operations in China and our project-based business in the UK.
