"Lundbergs should benefit from its strong financial position. At year-end, the company's debt amounted to only 12% of the market value of its assets. This financial strength and flexibility, in addition to the investment track record of management, should suit the company well as it evaluates potential investment opportunities in the current environment. Market concerns surrounding Nordic industrial stocks and the macro-economic environment in general enabled us to purchase shares of Lundbergs at discounts in excess of 20% to its net asset value."
