Svenska Spel

CEO's commentary

"Our operations are based on the mandate and financial targets that Svenska Spel has been given by its owner and that were resolved on at the Annual General Meeting in 2012. This is a clear mandate that accommodates the challenge of always balancing consumer protection with the demand for attractive gaming products.

The justification for Svenska Spel’s existence is based on how well we carry out our mandate. Accordingly, the mandate and the balance between social and consumer interests form a common theme throughout the organisation, from our vision and business concept to operational objectives and the overriding strategies for the development, sales and marketing of gaming. We must continuously ­discuss how the mandate can be incorporated in reality and during the year we continued to more clearly integrate responsible gaming into the company’s result areas.

Due to the increasingly intense competition in the market, we have carried out our mandate in a favourable manner and our ­financial efficiency targets were achieved."

Lennart Käll, President and CEO
