Statement from Managing Director and CEO Peter Rejler
Rejlers is continuing to consciously build up a balanced customer base for the
Group. The market prospects for the industrial sector are looking increasingly
bright, and this sector is well on the way to recovery. We are now focusing on
recruitment and company acquisitions in other customer groups.

On 1 October, Råbe Industrikonsult was acquired, which will complement Reljers'
offer to the Swedish and Finnish nuclear power industry. The energy sector will
demand greater availability of consultant services, among other things to
renovate and maintain nuclear power stations. At the same time, alternative
energy is on an upswing. We are working on major infrastructure projects, where
we have an increased need for recruitment. This applies for consultants within
the railway and telecom sectors. The demand for commercial and public properties
has resulted in a stable market for Construction and property.

An example of noteworthy assignments during the third quarter is a project for
the Swedish Transport Administration, where Rejlers is designing the contact
lines, electrical power and signal system for when the railway line between
Arlöv and Flackarp is expanded from double track to four track. The company has
been commissioned to raise the safety class of electrical power facilities for
EON and Svenska Kraftnät.  Rejlers also has the technical responsibility for the
infrastructure for the congestion charge project in Gothenburg, when it comes to
communication and security between the pay stations and the Swedish Transport
Agency's central system.

During the autumn, we attained our goal of 1000 employees for the year 2010. It
started as a vision in 2003, in connection with our listing on the stock
exchange. Now we are raising the bar further. We call our goal for the next
development phase 3x2015. In 2015, we will have at least 2015 employees and
turnover of at least SEK 2015 million. We continue to believe that 2010 earnings
will be higher than those for 2009.
