CEO Comments

President and CEO Alf Göransson reported on Securitas operations during

the year 2008 and commented further work within Securitas. The script

and the presentation are published in complete versions at

www.securitas.com. The quotas below are from the script and refer to the


"Briefly, I could summarize 2008 as a strong year for Securitas. Our

organic sales growth reached 6% - the same as the year before. Our

operating income improved by 13% and our operating margin by 0.2

percentage points to 5.8%. We had no goodwill write-down and no large

items affecting comparability or extraordinary costs. Also, we sorted

out the problems that existed within Loomis' cash handling operation and

listed and distributed Loomis to our shareholders. All in all this

resulted in a significant improvement in net profit over 2007."

"On several occasions I have stated that the security market service is

significantly less cyclical and sensitive to economic fluctuations than

many other industries, and accordingly to GNP trends. There is,

however, a greater correlation between GNP and the security market in

the USA than in Europe.

I believe that this is still the case that the security market is

significantly less cyclical and sensitive to economic fluctuation than

many other industries. The problem is, though, that many companies do

not experience cyclicality. Today some are fighting for their survival.

Securitas is not immune either, although we are being affected far less

than other companies and industries. We actually experienced growth in

the first quarter, albeit modest at 1%."

"We are going to be cautious about acquisitions, at least in the first

half of the year. The reason for this is that we believe it will be

financially beneficial to wait since most of our competitors will

experience weaker volume, bad debt losses and a lower payment ethic

among their customers."

"Our strategy for handling the market and our customer in this recession

situation is to try to help our customer find solutions that reduce

their total security costs, to prioritize profitability first and volume

second, to try to replace contracts with lowest margins into slightly

better margins, to identify weak competitors, customers or contracts

where there is good potential to win, and to pay more attention than

ever to making sure our customer pay on time. We also invest in

comprehensive training programs in order to increase our security

knowledge and expertise at all levels in the company."

"Companies develop when they have managers and employees who ask

themselves the following question every day: 'How can I improve security

and services in the best possible way for my customers?' Securitas is a

company like that and this makes me hopeful and optimistic about the
