	Operating income (EBIT) decreased during the first six months by 18 percent to
MSEK 221 (271), which resulted in an operating margin (EBIT) of 5.9 percent

amounted to 6.2 percent (8.6).

change of trademark during the first six months amounted to MSEK 18, of which
MSEK 15 refer to the second quarter. 
	Income before tax for the first six months amounted to MSEK 167 (275). Foreign
exchange rate effects impacted financial net by MSEK -7 (20) during the first
six months.
	Net income amounted to MSEK 116 (190) during the first six months and to MSEK
72 (105) during the second quarter. Earnings per share amounted to SEK 0.32
(0.52) during the first six months, and to SEK 0.20 (0.29) during the second
quarter.
	Outlook for 2008 - Total sales growth for the full year of 2008 is deemed to
amount to the same level as during the first six months of 2008. Operating
income for the full year of 2008 is expected to be lower than last year, as a
consequence of the weaker outcome than planned during the first six months of
2008.

Comments from the CEO, Juan Vallejo
Our operations are continuing to grow despite a reduced rate of investment
within the banking sector. The declining outlook for the banking sector is
compensated by growth in other customer segments, which lies behind continued
growth in Continental Europe during the first six months, among other things.
Our service offerings enable us to grow even in a climate in which customers
tend to reduce the running costs. The integration of the newly acquired G4S is
proceeding according to plan and contributing to a strengthening of our market
position in Germany.
