Klövern AB (publ)
We have briefly reviewed this interim report according to the recommendation issued by FAR (the institute for the accountancy profession in Sweden). A review is considerably more limited in scope compared with an audit. Nothing has come to our attention which causes us to believe that this interim report does not comply with the requirements of the stock exchange and annual accounts legislation.
