The credit facility covers the Group's financing needs for the coming years and will result in reduced financing costs. The facility was provided by Danske Bank, Nordea, BNP Paribas, Commerzbank, HSBC and Svenska Handelsbanken.

The expectations to the financial results in 2014 remain unchanged. The expectations were published on 12 February 2014, and were confirmed on 7 November 2014 in connection with the Q3 interim report.
