Carl Eric Stålberg, President and CEO of JM, comments Skanska's sale of
its holding in JM:

"Skanska's sale of its holding in JM marks the end of many years of
responsible ownership in the company. It also represents a continuation
of recent years' spread of ownership in JM, where we have among other
things seen an increase in foreign interests. A natural consequence of
this trend is that the liquidity of the JM share is improved, for the
benefit of all shareholders", says Carl Eric Stålberg, President and CEO
of JM.
