Interest rate risk
Interest-rate risk refers to the adverse effects of changes in interest rates on the Group’s income. On the basis of 2022 borrowings with an average interest fixing period of 0.4 years and considering that the amount of loans outstanding as at December 31, 2022 was approximately SEK 2.9bn, a 1% point shift in interest rates would impact the Group’s interest
expenses by approximately SEK 27m.
