Kinnevik’s Interim Report 1 January – 30 September 2023

18 October 2023, 8:00 AMRegulatory information
”The market environment in which we operate continues to be highly challenging, and we are not satisfied with the development of our net asset value and share price. To support our companies in navigating the tough business climate, we are working closely with our founders and co-investors to increase efficiency in each business and to strike the right balance between growth and profitability. Many difficult decisions need to be made, but they are made with the intent to shape a more resilient portfolio and position it for long-term value creation. We remain committed to our strategy of doubling down in our high-conviction companies, deploying more capital into our focus sectors and making use of the opportunities that a more risk-averse market provides.”

Georgi Ganev, CEO of Kinnevik
