Outlook for 2018

Free cash flow from continuing operations, excluding licenses and dividends from associated companies, is expected to be around the same level as in 2017 (SEK 9.7 billion). This operational free cash flow together with decided dividends from associated companies should cover a dividend around the 2017 level.

Adjusted EBITDA in continuing operations, based on current structure, in local currencies, excluding future acquisitions and disposals, is expected to be in line with or slightly above the 2017 level (SEK 25.4 billion).
