Skanska has reported a total revenue of Skr41.88bn ($4.01bn) in the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2023, compared to Skr40.35bn in the same quarter of the previous year.
For the latest quarter ending 31 December 2023, the company’s operating income saw a decline of approximately 73% to Skr957m from Skr3.53bn in Q4 2022.
