The Volito Group – 20 years of long-term investment

T H E G R OUP

Volito is a privately owned investment group headquartered in Malmö. The Group’s story begins in 1991 when Karl-Axel Granlund acquires and merges two established aircraft leasing companies. The new company is soon given the name Volito – “to fly and aspire to new heights” – and operates with great success. Gradually, the company expands into other business areas. Aircraft leasing is still a significant part of the business with aircraft placed all over the world. The majority of the fleet is jointly owned with the American company, Goldman Sachs. Other business areas are Real Estate, with a growing portfolio in the Malmö region; Industry, consisting of several Swedish hydraulics companies, and Structured Finance, which comprises of Nordkap Bank AG in Switzerland. The Volito Group also contains substantial holdings in listed companies with influence at board level and ownership interests in associated companies and jointly-owned companies. In total, the Volito Group has adjusted equity of SEK 1 771 million. Volito’s overall objective is to create long-term, balanced value growth for the shareholders, both through current income from operational activities and value growth in the Group’s investments. The Group’s success is based on its staff members’ ability to assess and manage capital-intensive investments, and welldocumented experience in the spreading of risk. The Group is characterised by a high degree of independence and integrity. The Volito Group takes a long-term perspective and strives for investments that are based on sector knowledge, experience, relations and mutual trust.

2010 in brief • The Volito Group reported a pre-tax profit for 2010 of SEK 121.7 million, which is 47 % higher than the previous year. The rise in the stock market in 2010 has increased the value of Volito’s share portfolio. On 31 December 2010 the Volito Group’s adjusted equity amounted to SEK 1 771.1 million, which represents an increase of 21 %. •

VGS Aircraft Holding (Ireland) Limited (VGS) made a profit of USD 12.9 million before tax. On 31 December 2010 VGS had a fleet of 44 aircraft with a value of USD 836 million, representing an increase of 15 %. The Volito Aviation AB Group made a profit of SEK 37.2 million (71.0) before tax.

• Volito Fastigheter reported a pre-tax profit for the year of SEK 43.9 million (36.2). The market value of the portfolio at year-end 2010 was SEK 1 603.1 million, which is an increase of 8.5 %. Volito’s holding in Peab AB (publ) has grown in value with an increase of around 30 % including received dividends. The Peab Group’s turnover rose by 9 % and the reported operating profit was SEK 1 563 million, which is 2 % lower than the previous year.

• Volito Industri has continued its expansion in the Swedish Hydraulics market. HydX has grown and established itself in the market. At the end of the year Volito Automation acquired Hydro Swede, and began to establish Hydraulic Supplier under own management. Volito’s holding in CTT Systems (publ) at year-end was at a similar share price level as the previous year-end. The company made a loss after tax of SEK -2.3 million. • In 2010 Nordkap Bank AG consolidated its loan portfolio and focused on the problem loans that arose during the financial crisis. The bank has succeeded in increasing the number of customers who have made a considerable recovery. This, in combination with the improved credit market, has resulted in a reduced loan portfolio and improved liquidity. Nordkap Bank AG reported a profit before tax for 2010 of CHF 0.5 million (0.3).

Comments from the CEO Overall, 2010 was a good year for the Volito Group. The operations developed according to plan, profits improved considerably compared with the previous year and the value of our portfolio reached a new all-time high. The relatively low level of business activity in the first half of 2010 changed for the better, with an increasing number of transactions towards the end of the year and into 2011. Satisfying developments included new acquisitions in Aviation and Real Estate, and continued expansion in Business Area Industry.

T

he rise in the stock market during 2010 has increased the value of Volito’s share portfolio. At year-end 2010, the Volito Group’s adjusted equity amounted to SEK 1 771.1 million, which represents an increase of 21 %. The Group reported a pre-tax profit for 2010 of SEK 121.7 million, which is 47 % higher than the previous year. Business Area Aviation Tough times continued for the aviation sector in 2010. However, in the second half of the year we noted a considerable improvement in business conditions, increased traffic volumes and more positive financial figures from the airlines. Volito Aviation has succeeded in strengthening its position and enters 2011 without any significant refinancing exposure. All aircraft, with the exception of one Fokker 50, are commited for lease and eight new leasing agreements were signed during the year, allowing Aviation to broaden its market to Germany, Israel, Lithuania, Belgium, Latvia and the Philippines. Three aircraft have been taken back from customers, who for a variety of

reasons could not meet their payment obligations. VGS Aircraft Holding Ltd (VGS) has acquired three aircraft, a used Boeing 737-800 from Transavia (Netherlands) and two newly produced Airbus 320s from Air Berlin. VGS now has a fleet of 44 aircraft with a value of USD 836 million, which represents an increase of 15 %. VGS made a pre-tax profit of USD 12.9 million. The Volito Aviation AB Group’s pre-tax profit was SEK 37.2 million. Challenges remain regarding the placing and refinancing of aircraft, but we can expect a growth period in traffic volumes and an improving business climate. Business Area Real Estate Volito Fastigheter reported another year of strong performance. The company is stable after the recession of recent years, which have been devoted to consolidation and organisational improvements. During the second half of 2010 there were again opportunities for acquisitions, and Volito Fastigheter began a new phase of expansion. In late 2010 and early 2011 seven new properties were acquired with attractive locations

in central Malmö. The transactions mean a 30 % increase in the market value of the real estate portfolio. As we enter 2011 the market situation is optimistic, dynamic and conditions for growth are good – as a result we expect continued expansion. The property leasing market in the Öresund Region remains strong and the property value trend is upwards. During 2011 we can expect stable demand for commercial premises in the region. Volito’s holding in Peab AB (publ) developed positively in value terms with an increase of around 30 % including received dividend. The Peab Group’s turnover increased by 9 % and the reported operating profit was SEK 1 563 million, which is 2 % lower than the previous year. Although there was a subdued start to 2010 for all business areas, higher levels of activity were noted during the rest of the year. The construction business has displayed a strong recovery and at year-end the company had its largest order book ever. Peab assesses the outlook for 2011 as good with increased demand for housing and commercial premises.

Business Area Industry Volito Industry has developed in line with our expectations and continued its expansion in the Swedish hydraulics market. HydX has grown, become established and set up a sales office in Gothenburg. From the second quarter the flow of orders has been good, which will generate rising revenues in 2011. In late 2010, Volito Automation also acquired the Stockholm-based company Hydro Swede, and began to establish Hydraulic Supplier under own management in Örnsköldsvik and Skellefteå. Hydratech in Smålandsstenar was acquired in January 2011. All the companies are closely related to HydX and the ambition is to become a leading supplier of industrial and mobile hydraulics that covers the Swedish market both in geographical terms and the scope of the customer offering. The Swedish engineering industry has performed strongly in 2010 and demand for mobile hydraulics has been rising for some time. Our assessment is that there will also be increased demand and a higher inflow of orders on the industry side in the first half of 2011.

technology continues to rise. In recent years CTT has achieved success in selling direct to aircraft manufacturers and it is here that future potential lies. Both Boeing and Airbus use CTT’s systems in their new aircraft. The company made a loss after tax of SEK -2.3 million. It is our conviction that CTT Systems will continue to develop positively and in time will become a very profitable investment. Business Area Structured Finance During 2010 Nordkap Bank AG has consolidated its loan portfolio and focused on customer credit problems that arose during the financial crisis. We decided early in the crisis to take a long term view and work actively together with our clients. In the ongoing reconstruction process the bank has succeeded in increasing the number of customers who have achieved a good recovery. The efforts made in recent years mean that the bank has an increasingly healthy portfolio and can resume its focus on core activities. Nordkap Bank AG made a pre-tax profit of CHF 0.5 million for 2010.

as a demanding stock market or risk capitalists who expect rapid returns, we can act calmly and cautiously when the times requires it, and move forward again when the markets have stabilised. After the consolidation in recent years at various levels of the Group we have seen in the second half of 2010 an improved business climate with growing optimism. We have noted a significant increase in both demand and the range of business transactions. Therefore, Volito expects to expand its activities on several fronts during 2011. In conclusion, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers, staff, business partners and owners for their good cooperation during the past year.

Business Area Aviation consists of wholly-owned Volito Aviation AB, a holding company that acquires, finances and leases out commercial aircraft via its subsidiaries. The internal resources of Volito Aviation bring together many years of experience in aircraft leasing with specialist expertise in areas such as law, marketing, administration, maintenance, financing and risk management. One of Volito Aviation’s strengths is the ability to compose a balanced, fuel-efficient fleet. Volito’s fleet comprises mainly of twin-engine, fuel-efficient narrow body aircraft such as the Airbus 320 and Boeing 737-800 – assets with long economic lives that have proven to be very resilient in recessions. The aircraft are based on several continents and spread over a number of different markets, ensuring stability and the power to act, even in a fluctuating business climate. Today, the fleet is made up of 49 aircraft, of which 44 are owned by Ireland-based VGS Aircraft Holding – a joint venture between Volito and Goldman Sachs Group. Five aircraft are owned by other subsidiaries within the Volito Aviation Group. Volito Aviation Services AB is responsible for managing the aircraft of both VGS and Volito Aviation AB. Business Area Aviation acts strategically with a long-term perspective and plans to continue its expansion with new acquisitions.

Going for growth in a recovering market Aviation has been one of the markets hit hardest by the recession of recent years. A well-balanced approach to risk taking and the ability to secure leasing agreements and financing, even in difficult times, has enabled Volito Aviation to emerge confidently from the financial crisis.

2010

was a year in which the after-effects of the recession continued to impact on business activities. A weak market meant continued tough conditions for securing leasing agreements and financing aircraft transactions. Our operations are directly linked to the business climate affecting passenger airlines, as the entire fleet consists of passenger aircraft. With this in mind, increases in traffic volumes and the improved financial performance of airlines are seen as positive signs of recovery. In addition there are positive trends indicating an improvement in the business climate for the financial and capital markets.

2010 with no significant refinancing exposure and all but one Fokker 50 committed for lease. This is an outstanding performance considering the difficult business conditions. There is also the added satisfaction that we have succeeded in securing several new aircraft acquisitions and increased our aircraft fleet.

Thanks to the tireless efforts and commitment of my colleagues, we end

placed with Zest Air (Philippines), Belle Air (Albania), Brussels Airlines (Belgium), Israir (Israel), Small Planet Airlines (Lithuania), Comair (South Africa), Jet2 (United Kingdom) and SmartLynx (Latvia). Volito Aviation AB had to take back three aircraft during 2010; two Fokker 50s from Denim Air (Netherlands), due to bankruptcy, and one Boeing 737-400 from Blue Air (Romania), as the client could not meet payment obligations. New leasing agreements for aircraft in Germany, Israel, Lithuania, Belgium, Latvia and the Philippines mean we have also expanded geographically. This expansion is significant as our business is to a great extent concerned with the managing of financial risks. The spreading of the fleet in

remain focused. Although VGS has performed relatively well in 2010, the leasing and refinancing markets will remain difficult for older assets in 2011 and that is likely to affect financial performance in 2011.

At year-end the VGS fleet consisted of 44 aircraft with a book value of USD 836 million. Liabilities linked to the fleet amounted at year-end to USD 509 million. Volito Aviation owns directly five aircraft with a book value of SEK 204 million. Fleet-related liabilities amounted at year-end to SEK 47 million. The fleet consists entirely of narrow body aircraft, of which 88 % are next generation aircraft. These aircraft have a long economic lifetime, are among the most stable in value fluctuation terms, and considered the most liquid asset in this market.

Several challenges remain, but I am optimistic as we enter 2011. My colleagues have succeeded in maintaining stability in the business, managing to refinance all agreements while also achieving valuable new acquisitions at a time when many observers thought such results were impossible. These are achievements that highlight the clear strengths of our company as we prepare for future challenges.

Predictions relating to the length of a recession are very difficult. Previous experience in the aviation sector suggests business cycles of 6-10 years. Given that the industry is now coming out of a recession, good grounds exist for expecting a growth period in traffic volumes over the next 4-6 years, which will result in a considerably improved business climate. There is tough competition in our market, so it is essential that we

Real Estate Business Area Real Estate consists of the wholly-owned subsidiary, Volito Fastigheter AB. The company owns and manages commercial properties in the Malmö region. The business is characterised by a long-term approach, efficient property management, a high level of service and close relations with customers and partners. At present the portfolio consists of 23 properties in the Malmö region, which are all strategically located close to service functions, access roads and other communications. The portfolio is divided between offices, retail, industry and warehousing, and the total area amounts to around 104 000 m2.

Business Area Real Estate also contains Volito’s holdings in Peab AB (publ). Peab is active in the construction and civil engineering field and listed on OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm.

R E A L E STAT E

Volito Fastigheter has continuously developed its portfolio in order to strengthen its presence in the Malmö region’s most attractive areas. Looking forward, the company intends to continue its development and expansion. The aim is not to be the market’s biggest player, but to position the company as the best in terms of management and customer relations.

Optimism, high expectations and new acquisitions Volito Fastigheter is strong and stable after the recession of recent years. The company has implemented successful consolidation work according to plan with a focus on enhancing the efficiency of the organisation and reducing costs. Volito Fastigheter is now entering an expansion phase and looking forward we expect the market will offer opportunities for acquisitions. Around the turn of the year 2010-2011 the company carried through two property transactions in central Malmö, one of which is the largest in our history.

O

ur assessment is that conditions for new property transactions have become significantly better in the second half of 2010. We are now leaving a period in which the market for real estate transactions has in general been completely closed. Looking forward we can expect more properties to be on the market and an increasing interest in financing property transactions from the banks’ side.

The acquisition of S:t Peter 3 with an area of 2 850 m2 was completed at the end of 2010. S:t Peter 3, built in 1881, is one of the classic properties on Östergatan about 200 metres from Malmö’s main square, Stortorget, and houses a well-know lawyer’s office. At the start of 2011 we acquired six properties, a total area of 16 800 m2, for around SEK 390 million. This is the biggest single transaction since the company was formed. Overall, the new

Regarding the property leasing market we have noted that interest from potential tenants remains strong in general. During 2010 two of our tenants outgrew their premises and left us. At the same time we have signed several new lease agreements with tenants taking occupancy in 2010 and 2011 with a total rental value of SEK 92 million. Two of the major contracts relate to office space at Flygkameran 2 Distribution of rent by category and m2

and Nejlikebuketten 4. The vacancy rate in our portfolio is 9.8 %, which is fully in line with our expectations. The development project in Bara town centre, which is being implemented in cooperation with Peab, continues to progress. Peab plans new construction of a large number of houses and apartments, and various premises for a library, sport, shops and service functions. We are actively participating in the changes to Bara’s town centre and plan in early 2011 to be part of a company that will manage the completed multi-use sports hall. We have high expectations for the expansion of Bara and plan to increase our involvement together with Peab.

R E A L E STAT E

Several important lease agreements were signed during the year, including those with the two major tenants, and we expect all areas to be leased by the opening. In the same area we own and manage Ran 4, a six-storey property incorporating shops and office premises. We are planning rebuilding work on the attic to release 1 500 m2 of new office space. These premises will be ready at the end of 2011, when the Volito Group intend to become one of the tenants.

The market value of Volito’s property portfolio was assessed by an external party at year-end and was set at SEK 1 603.1 million, which represents an increase of 8.5 % compared with the previous year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my colleagues, whose great efforts and commitment are behind Volito Fastigheter’s success. Having access to their knowledge and experiences is a constant source of inspiration.

Looking ahead we assess the market situation as optimistic. Opportunities for financing are improving, something clearly shown by our latest transactions. We are stronger than ever and well prepared for our continued Volito Fastigheter reported a pre-tax profit for 2010 of SEK 43.9 million. The expansion.

Volito’s portfolio gains six new properties After a period of good consolidation work, Volito Fastigheter has entered an expansion phase. In early 2011 an acquisition was made consisting of six strategically located properties in the Malmö region. It is the single largest acquisition since the business was formed and means that Volito Fastigheter has raised the market value of its portfolio by 24 %.

E

ver since it was established, Volito Fastigheter has invested long term in the Malmö region’s most attractive areas. All acquisitions are thoroughly assessed and valued, using criteria such as proximity to service functions, access roads and other communications. The new properties are a good fit for the portfolio. Laxen 23, Söderport 8, Stjärnan 10 and Claus Mortensen 29, are all attractively located in areas beside the long pedestrian precinct that makes

up Malmö’s absolute centre. The properties incorporate everything from office space to training companies and well-known shops and entertainment venues. Söderhavet 5 and 6 are in Nyhamnen – one of the districts along Malmö’s coastal strip. Major changes are planned for this area in the next few years including housing, commercial premises and green spaces. The properties consist of modern office and exhibition spaces. All of the new properties are within walking distance of either the Central Station or the

newly opened City Tunnel, which in time will make travelling easier in the Öresund region, through benefits such as shortening journey times for commuters. All the new acquisitions are considered as long-term investments and will in the near future be modernised regarding ventilation, refrigeration, digital technology and workspace flexibility – enhancements that will make the properties even more attractive.

Value increases and cooperation deepens Business Area Real Estate also includes Volito’s holding in Peab AB (publ). Seen over the full year the value trend for the Peab holding has been positive. The construction market has steadily improved and the company has the largest inflow of orders in its history. Cooperation on the real estate side has deepened further, including projects such as the development of Bara town centre. Peab is active in the construction and civil engineering field and listed on OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm (Large Cap from 2011). At year-end 2010, Volito owned 5.15% of the capital and 2.52 % of the votes in Peab. The holding is a long-term investment and Volito has had a welldeveloped cooperative relationship with Peab for a number of years. Volito Fastigheter engages Peab for construction and civil engineering work using the cooperative procurement method. Volito also acts as an advisor and partner, and acquires and administers the completed properties in the case of new production managed by Peab.

includes around 340 rented and owner-occupied apartments, a large number of houses, premises for health care, social services and shops, and a new library on behalf of Svedala Municipality. There are also plans for entertainment and recreation facilities in the area. Volito Fastigheter is actively participating in the changes to Bara’s town centre and plans in early 2011 to be part of a company that will manage the completed multi-use sports hall. The tenant in this case is also Svedala Municipality. Volito sees good business opportunities in Bara’s expansion and intends to increase its involvement together with Peab.

One example of development and improvement is the small town of Bara, located just outside Malmö. Bara is popular for its proximity to the countryside and golf courses, and is set for significant expansion. Peab plans new construction that

Peab trends Volito’s holding in Peab has developed positively in value terms during the year. The share price fell somewhat in the first half of the year, but recovered and rose over the full year by around 24 %, which is in line with OMXSPI.

The Peab Group’s turnover increased by 9 % compared with 2009. The reported operating profit was SEK 1 563 million, which is 2 % lower than the previous year. After a subdued opening to 2010, due to the harsh winter, all three business areas – Construction, Civil Engineering and Industry – reported increased activity. The construction business experienced a strong recovery and at year-end Peab had its biggest order book ever, amounting to SEK 27 billion (plus 11 %). One notable order is for the new construction of 10 IKEA stores in the Nordic countries, which is Peab’s largest single order ever. Peab deems the outlook for 2011 as good, an assessment mainly based on the increasingly strong construction market, which is driven by demand for new homes and apartment buildings as well as commercial premises.

Industry HydX has 15 employees in Ystad and Gothenburg; Hydro Swede, with five employees, is active south of Stockholm; Hydratech has 10 employees in Smålandsstenar, while Hydraulic Supplier is in a recruitment phase as it sets up for business in Örnsköldsvik and Skellefteå. The companies operate under the parent company, Volito Automation. Volito’s ambition for Volito Automation is for it to establish itself as a leading supplier in industrial hydraulics. The aim is to create a structure of knowledge-intensive companies that together will offer complete sector coverage for the Swedish market. Business Area Industry also contains a long-standing, active ownership interest of 15.5% in CTT Systems. CTT develops advanced on-board humidity regulation systems for aircraft. The technology is used to create a more comfortable, healthier cabin environment and to combat condensation in the aircraft fuselage, leading to improved operational reliability, lower weight and lower fuel consumption. CTT Systems is on the Small Cap listing of OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm.

IND U ST RY

Business Area Industry invests in well-established industrial companies with long-term growth possibilities. Today, the business area consists of partly-owned HydX AB, wholly-owned Hydro Swede AB and Hydratech AB, and the newly established Hydraulic Supplier i Norden AB. In its respective specialist areas, the companies deliver systems, aggregates and components for industrial, mobile and marine hydraulics.


26

Business Area Industry continues to progress Business Area Industry has developed in line with expectations. The Hydraulics company HydX has expanded and established business partnerships in accordance with the set business plan. In late 2010 the Stockholm-based company Hydro Swede was acquired, and the formation of Hydraulic Supplier under own management began in Örnsköldsvik and Skellefteå. The sector-covering company structure, which is the aim of Volito Automation, is becoming clearer.

B

usiness Area Industry currently consists of four companies in the hydraulics sector: the partly owned HydX, the wholly-owned Hydro Swede and Hydratech, and the newly formed Hydraulic Supplier. All companies operate under the parent company, Volito Automation. The business area also contains a long-standing active ownership interest of 15.5 % in CTT Systems. CTT develops advanced solutions for humidity regulation on board aircraft and is on the Small Cap listing of OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm. The ambition for Volito Automation is to build up a position in the Swedish market as a leading supplier of solutions in industrial hydraulics. HydX has completed its first financial year and progress has been according to plan. The company has been positively received by the market and has established itself with the majority of intended target customers. The inflow

of orders has been good from the start of the second quarter in 2010 onwards and with the current order book we can expect rising revenues during 2011. HydX has achieved success in areas such as turbine regulation on the industry side and tracked contractor’s machinery on the mobile side. During 2010 HydX has also succeeded in signing partnership agreements with two of the sector’s largest and most respected suppliers, Parker-Hannifin and Sauer-Danfoss. The agreements means close and deepened cooperation that broadens HydX’s customer offering – a sign that the company’s expertise is sought after in the market. The business partnerships will have a positive effect on future sales. During the year recruitment opportunities to strengthen the company’s team of qualified sales representatives resulted in the setting up of a sales office in Gothenburg. The year’s positive developments have meant that HydX in Ystad has outgrown its premises and from the start of 2011

the business has operated from a new address with plenty of space for growth in the years to come. At the end of the year we also acquired the Stockholm-based Hydro Swede, and started to establish Hydraulic Supplier. Hydratech AB in Smålandsstenar was acquired at the start of 2011. Like HydX, these companies supply hydraulic components and systems within their respective specialist areas. Hydro Swede and Hydratech have five and 10 employees respectively and similar turnovers of around SEK 20 million. Recruitment is underway at Hydraulic Supplier for both facilities in Örnsköldsvik and Skellefteå. In the foreseeable future we see a situation in which Volito Automation will be the owner of a number of companies in industrial hydraulics. The aim is that together these companies will provide total coverage

Finally, I would like to thank all the staff and partners who make our successes possible in Business Area Industry. It is a privilege to be surrounded by individuals who possess so much expertise, experience and commitment.

The Swedish engineering industry has on the whole performed very strongly in 2010. In the hydraulics sector it is usually considered that, in business cycle terms, the mobile market is six months ahead of the industrial market, in both upswings and downturns. Demand for mobile hydraulics has been on the rise for a time and we also expect increased demand and inflow of orders on the industry side in the first half of 2011.

and Airbus use CTT’s systems in their new aircraft. The aviation industry had another tough year in 2010, which has affected the inflow of orders, as has the delay in delivery of Boeing’s B787, which is equipped with CTT’s Zonal Drying system. Despite this, there is a regular flow of orders. The order relating to Boeing’s B787-programme in October is CTT’s single largest order ever and indicates that the company is entering a fase where OEM-deliveries will lead to a regular increase in turnover. The retrofit market remains weak, but CTT deems that the will to invest will increase as airlines become more profitable. The Board considers that the company’s financial situation remains satisfactory. Our holding in CTT Systems rose in value by around 25% in the first half-year, and fell by a similar percentage during the second. The OMXSPI rose by around 21% during the year.

Nordkap Bank AG sees the value of long-term approach Both 2009 and 2010 were characterised by consolidation and reconstruction. A focus on long-term thinking, rather than short-term fixes, has enabled Nordkap Bank AG to find long-term solutions for problem loans. Since the autumn of 2009 steady improvements have been noted in the bank’s portfolio. There has been a return to profit and the bank can increasingly resume its core activities.

D

uring the financial crisis a number of Nordkap Bank AG’s customers faced difficulties and were unable to meet payment obligations. For the last two years our focus has been on managing and restructuring problematic credits, which has meant that we have only completed a few new transactions. In the same period credit markets have improved, increasing customers’ repayment capacity to the extent that

several have chosen to pay off their loans in advance. This combination of factors caused a reduction in the loan portfolio last year as well as a high level of liquidity. We are achieving good results in restructuring problem loans and a positive trend has been noted since the autumn of 2009. This has been mainly due to our decision at an early stage to take a long-term

In early 2011 an acquisition was made consisting of six strategically located properties in Malmö. It is the single largest acquisition since the business was formed.

Aviation

In value terms the real estate market has remained relatively stable during the year. The market value of Volito’s property portfolio was assessed by an external party at year-end and was set at SEK 1 603.1 million (1 401.8). Adjusted for acquisitions and rebuilding work this represents an increase of 8.5% compared with the previous year-end.

Leasing – Volito Aviation AB group Volito Aviation runs operations in the leasing of commercial jet aircraft in the narrow-body segment, mainly Boeing 737 and Airbus 319/320 aircraft.

There have been no property sales during the year. Volito Fastigheter has a vacancy rate of 9.8% (10.6%).

The company VGS Aircraft Holding (Ireland) Ltd. is jointly owned with Goldman Sachs and is based in Ireland. During 2010 VGS invested in three new aircraft. All acquisitions are sale and leaseback transactions and relate to one used 737-800 to the Dutch airline Transavia, and two newly produced Airbus 320 aircraft to Air Berlin in Germany. As no aircraft sales have taken place, VGS had a fleet of 44 aircraft at yearend. These have a total book value of USD 836.0 million. Liabilities linked to the fleet amounted to USD 509.1 million at year-end. The percentage of narrow-body aircraft in the fleet is 100%, and there is a good spread of risk in geographical terms. The company has lessees in Europe, Central and South America, North America, Asia and Africa.

Volito Fastigheter’s profit before tax for 2010 was SEK 43.9 million (36.2). The results for 2010 include a non-recurrent remuneration of SEK 11.5 million from the City of Malmö regarding land redemption. Lower interest rates have also had a positive effect during the year while a decrease in CPI have led to lower rental incomes. The return on equity for the year was 13.3% (11.7%).

The fleet of VGS and Volito Aviation’s own fleet of five aircraft are managed by Volito Aviation Services AB (VAS), a dedicated management company that is principally owned by Volito Aviation AB (80%). During the year eight aircraft in the VGS fleet were remarketed under new leases.

Volito’s holding in Peab amounts to 15 250 000 series B shares in Peab AB (publ), which corresponds to 5.15% of the capital and 2.52% of the votes.

Volito Aviation AB has had to take back three aircraft, two Fokker 50s from Denim Air in Holland due to bankruptcy, and one Boeing 737-400 from Blue Air in Romania, as the customer could not fulfil payment obligations. A new leasing agreement has been signed for the latter with delivery in January 2011. In the beginning of 2011 a letter of intent has been sign for one of the two F50s. The second F50 is still to be leased out. Volito Aviation AB has upgraded its own aircraft for a total of SEK 18.5 million (7.4). The after-effects of the recession continued to impact on business activities in 2010. It has been difficult to sign leasing agreements and finance aircraft transactions. However, positive signs were noted in the second half of the year ­– a considerable improvement in market conditions, increased traffic volumes and more positive financial figures from the airlines. Volito Aviation generated a pre-tax profit of SEK 37.2 million (71.0).

Other holdings – Peab AB (publ) Peab is active in the construction and civil engineering field in the Nordic Region. The company’s shares are listed on OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm.

For Volito, the holding in Peab AB is of a strategic character. Volito has had a well developed cooperative relationship with Peab for a number of years. Cooperation between Volito Fastigheter and Peab has deepened further through projects such as the development of Bara town centre. Peab has developed positively in 2010. The construction market has improved steadily and the company has the biggest inflow of orders in its history. The market value of Volito’s total holding at year-end was SEK 873.1 million (701.5), which represents a value increase of 30% (taking received dividends into consideration) for the year. This growth in value (excluding dividends) is in line with OMX SPI.

Industry

The Parent company

Business Area Industry invests in well-established industrial companies with long-term growth possibilities.

The profit before tax for the Parent company amounted to SEK 47.9 million (47.0).

The hydraulics company HydX AB, which was formed in late 2009, has expanded and established partnerships according to the set business plan. HydX provides a complete service relating to development, design, production and service of hydraulic and lubrication systems. Volito owns 40% of the shares in the company.

Tax

In late 2010 Hydro Swede i Stockholm AB was acquired and the establishment of Hydraulic Supplier i Norden AB began. Hydratech AB in Smålandsstenar was acquired in early 2011. Like HydX, these companies supply hydraulic components and systems within their respective specialist areas. Volito AB owns 91% of the shares in the Volito Industry group, which has generated a profit before tax of SEK 5.7 million. The result includes a capital gain from the sale of the company’s holding in Haldex AB (publ) of SEK 6.8 million. Other holdings - CTT Systems AB (publ) CTT is a Swedish technology company that develops and markets humidity control systems for commercial aircraft. The company’s shares are listed on OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm. Interest in CTT’s humidity control technology continues to grow. In recent years CTT has had success in selling direct to aircraft manufacturers – both Boeing and Airbus use CTT’s systems in their new aircraft. The order relating to the B787 programme in October is CTT’s single largest order ever.

Deductible deficiency relating to Volito Aviation Finance Volito Aviation Finance was acquired in 2004. The National Tax Board made a claim in the County Administrative Court that the deductible deficiency as on 31 December 2004 should be disallowed in accordance with the law on tax evasion. The County Administrative Court found in favour of Volito Aviation Finance. The National Tax Board appealed to the Administrative Court of Appeal, which has accepted the National Tax Board’s interpretation. Volito Aviation Finance thereafter applied for leave to appeal to the Supreme Administrative Court, but this was rejected in 2010. Due to the fact that the possibility of a leave to appeal was uncertain, the company decided to report the tax that results from the judgements in the Administrative Court of Appeal with the interest on this tax as costs and liabilities as on 31 December 2009. The tax amounts to SEK 36.2 million and the interest to SEK 1.2 million, and will be paid in early 2011.

Important leasing agreements Volito Aviation’s aircraft fleet is leased out under operational leasing agreements. The period during which aircraft are leased out ranges from one to four years, see note 5. Volito Fastigheter had a vacancy rate of 9.8% (10.6%). The breakdown of leases is 95% commercial properties and 5% residential. The commercial rental income is divided between 171 contracts in a number of different sectors. For more information, see notes 5 and 19.

Volito’s holding amounts to 15.5% of the votes and capital in CTT.

Important events after the end of the financial year At year-end the share price was at a similar level to the previous yearend, SEK 25.70 per share (24.6). In the same period the OMX Small Cap increased by just over 20%.

In early 2011 Volito Fastigheter made an acquisition consisting of six strategically located properties in Malmö. It is the largest single acquisition since the business started and means that Volito Fastigheter has raised the market value of its portfolio by 24%.

Structured Finance Nordkap Bank AG is a Swiss commercial bank specialising in structured financing solutions. Volito AG owns 40% of the shares in Nordkap Bank AG.

Volito Industri AB acquired Hydratech AB at the beginning of January 2011.

Expectations concerning future developments Nordkap Bank AG has been adversely affected by the financial crisis that started in 2008. During the financial crisis a number of the bank’s customers found themselves in difficulties and consequently had problems in fulfilling their payment obligations to the bank. This resulted in increased provisions for customer losses at Nordkap Bank AG. For the last two years the focus has been on managing and restructuring problem loans. As the credit market has improved, customers’ repayment capability has increased and several have paid off loans in advance, which has resulted in a reduction in the loan portfolio. Nordkap Bank AG reported a profit before tax for 2010 of CHF 0.5 million (0.3). The return on equity was 0.5% (0.1%). Within the Volito Group, Nordkap Bank AG’s result is reported in accordance with IFRS. The consolidated loss for the Nordkap Holding group in accordance with IFRS was CHF -0.2 million (-15.2).

Other holdings

We are now leaving a period in which the market for real estate transactions has in general been completely closed. In the near future we expect more properties to be for sale and an increasing interest in financing of property transactions from the banks’ side, which means that the market situation is deemed as optimistic. At the same time, Volito Fastigheter is stronger than ever and is well prepared for continued expansion. The ambition for Volito Automation is to build up a position in the Swedish market as a leading supplier of solutions in industrial hydraulics. The Swedish engineering industry overall has performed strongly in 2010. Demand for mobile hydraulics has been rising for a time and Volito expects increased demand and inflow of orders on the industry side in the first half of 2011.

A N N UA L R EP O R T

Volito has shares in AB Nordsidan, Custos and a number of different small companies. The combined value of these holdings for the Group amounted at year-end to SEK 18.5 million (29.0). Volito’s holdings in Galenica AB and Haldex AB have been divested during the year and resulted in a capital gain for the Group of SEK 12.0 million.

The Group Forecasting the future after a recession is difficult. However there are good reasons to expect a growth period in traffic volumes in the next four to six years, which will lead to a considerably improved business climate. Even so, there is tough competition in the market and interest for the leasing and refinancing of older aircraft will be subdued for a while longer, which in all probability will also affect Volito’s performance in 2011.

After a few years of focusing on portfolio management, Nordkap Bank has noted a continuous improvement in its customers’ financial capability, which means that Nordkap Bank can return to business as usual with a focus on its core activities.

Interest rate exposure The Volito Group is exposed to changes mainly in short-term interest rates through its involvement in the Volito Fastigheter AB group. The Parent company, Volito AB, also has risk exposure relating to short-term interest rates.

Information on risks and uncertainty factors The Group The Group owns aircraft, which are leased to different lessees. The aircrafts’ value can fluctuate over time and the Group bears the risk relating to what the aircraft are worth at the time of a future sale. This risk is managed by continuous analysis of both the market for aircraft, and of potentially suitable times for selling aircraft. In addition the Group bears risks relating to the lessees’ credit rating in the form of leasing payments that are to be made during the period of the lease, and to other contractual obligations in the leasing agreement. If the lessee does not fulfil their obligations according to the leasing agreement, the Group may need to recover the aircraft, which is often associated with one-off costs. Risk management in this case is carried out through continuous credit analysis of the respective lessees. Banking activities carry risks, mainly in the form of credit losses, when the borrower cannot make repayments due on the loan. Nordkap Bank AG in cooperation with external auditors carries out continuous assessments of risks in the loan portfolio.

Financial risks In its business activities the Volito Group is exposed to various types of financial risks. Financial risks relate to changes in exchange rates and interest rates that affect the company’s cash flow, profit and thereby associated equity. The financial risks also include credit and refinancing risks. Exposure applying to the different operations is presented quarterly for the respective companies’ boards, which make current decisions regarding financial risk management based on the market situation and macroeconomic information, see note 37. Currency exposure In its business activities the Volito Group is exposed to risks relating to exchange rate changes principally through its involvement in aircraft leasing. Income from the leasing business is set and paid in USD. This exposure is counterbalanced to a large degree in that interest and amortisation are similarly USD-based. The results of VGS are reported as participations in joint ventures. Exchange rate differences related to translation of VGS are posted in the equity. The Volito Group’s holding in Nordkap Bank AG is partly hedged against changes in the CHF exchange rate through certain borrowings in CHF. However, a certain amount of the holding is exposed to changes in the CHF exchange rate. Exchange rate differences related to translation of participations in associated companies are posted in the equity. The Board of Volito has decided to accept the exposure to USD and CHF according to the above, as this exposure in itself constitutes a risk diversification within the Volito Group. The extent of this exposure will be decided according to continuous review.

Taken together, the Volito Group’s total loans exposed to short-term interest rates amount to SEK 906 million (892). The Volito Group manages part of its interest rate risks using interest rate swaps. Hedging relating to 48.6% of the debt portfolio of the Volito Fastigheter AB group is being managed with swaps, something that gives the company a higher degree of flexibility in terms of future debt management. See note 37.

Refinancing risks The Volito Group depends on a functioning credit market. The Group has a need to continuously refinance parts of its business, see note 39. The Group has a satisfactory equity ratio and loan capacity. It is therefore Volito’s assessment that there is at present no problem concerning the credit that is due for refinancing.

Information on non-financial result indications Volito’s employees The Volito Group is a relatively small organisation that handles large capital amounts. The well-being and development of the Group’s employees are hence of vital importance for the long-term prosperity of the Group. Volito uses employment conditions as the primary tool for attracting suitable and talented people. A number of events are organised within the Group’s various companies to further strengthen the team spirit and loyalty among people working at Volito.

Proposed allocation of the company’s profit The Board of Directors and CEO propose that the unappropriated earnings, SEK 383 788 117.08, is allocated as follows (SEK K): Dividend, [2 440 000 at SEK 10.25 per share] Retained earnings carried forward

25 010 358 778

Total

383 788

The proposed dividend reduces the Group’s equity ratio to 54% from 57%. The equity ratio is prudent, in view of the fact that the company’s activities continue to operate profitably. Liquidity in the Group is likewise expected to be maintained at a similarly secure level. The Board’s understanding is that the proposed dividend will not hinder the company in carrying out its duties in the short or long term nor from conducting necessary investments. The proposed dividend can thus be seen in accordance with sections 2 and 3 of Paragraph 3 of ABL 17 (prudence principle). For further information on the company’s income and position, refer to the subsequent income statements and balance sheets, and related notes to the accounts.

Accounting principles and notes to the accounts

A write-down is reversed if a change has taken place in the calculations used to determine the recovery value. A reverse is only carried out to the extent that the asset’s booked value does not exceed the booked value that would have been shown, with a deduction for the depreciation, if there was to be no write-down.

Amounts are in SEK thousand, unless otherwise stated.

General accounting principles The Annual Accounts have been drawn up in accordance with the Swedish Annual Accounts Act, the recommendations of the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council and the pronouncements of its Emerging Issues Task Force, with the exception of RR 18, information on earnings per share, which is a recommendation only for listed companies.

Receivables After individual valuation, receivables have been reported at the sum at which they are calculated to be received.

Reporting on segments

Receivables and debts denominated in foreign currencies Receivables and liabilities in foreign currencies have been translated at the accounting year-end exchange rate in accordance with recommendation No.8 of the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council. Exchange rate differences for operating receivables and operating liabilities are included in the operating profit/loss, while differences for financial receivables and financial liabilities are reported among financial income and expense items.

The primary basis for classification of the Group’s segments is the lines of business; Aviation, Real Estate, Structured Finance and Industry. Since the business area Industry just has been started it has been included in others in the information of lines of business (see note 1).

Regarding aircraft reported in the aircraft leasing operation, financing and flow of income are tied to USD, which means extensive hedging. Therefore, long-term liabilities in USD that constitute financing of aircraft are not translated at accounting year-end.

The company’s registered office, etc Volito AB runs its operations in the legal form of business entity, limited company, and its registered office is in Malmö. The head office address is Södra Förstadsgatan 4, SE-211 43 MALMÖ.

Classification, etc Fixed assets, long-term liabilities and provisions essentially consist only of amounts that are expected to be recovered or paid after more than 12 months calculated from accounting year-end. Current assets and short-term liabilities consist essentially only of amounts that are expected to be recovered or paid within 12 months calculated from accounting year-end.

Valuation principles, etc Assets, provisions and liabilities have been valued at the acquisition value, unless otherwise stated below. Intangible assets Intangible assets that are acquired by the company are reported at the acquisition value minus accumulated depreciation and write-downs. Depreciation Depreciation is linear over the asset’s period of use and is shown as expenses in the income statement. The following depreciation periods are applied: Software Goodwill Other intangible assets

The Group 5 years 5 years 5 years

Parent company – – –

Tangible fixed assets Tangible fixed assets that are acquired by the company are reported at the acquisition value less accumulated depreciation and write-downs. Additional costs Additional costs for value-adding improvements on intangible assets are capitalized. All other costs are recognized in the income statement as incurred. Depreciation principles for tangible fixed assets Depreciation according to plan is based on the original acquisition values reduced by the calculated residual value. Depreciation is linear over the period the asset is expected to be used. The following depreciation periods are applied: Real estate and buildings Equipment, tools, and installations Computer equipment

The Group 100 years 5 years 3–5 years

Parent company – 5 years 3–5 years

Aircraft Proportional depreciation is applied annually for aircraft so that the booked value is 15% of the acquisition value when the aircraft is 25 years old. The fuselages of the aircraft that was used in training operations were written off over 15 years. The length of the life of the engines was based on the number of flying hours, and depreciation of these stemmed from the number of utilised flying hours. Loan charges Depreciation of prepaid loan charges is based on the term of the loan. In the Parent company, loan charges are debited from the profit/loss in the period to which they are related. In the Consolidated accounts, subsidiaries loan charges are charged to the profit/loss over the term of the loans. Loan charges refer to set-up charges and other charges associated with obtaining the loan.

Inventories Inventories, valued according to recommendation No.2:02 of the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council, are reported at the lowest of either the acquisition value or the net realisable value. In this way, the risk for obsolescence has been taken into account. Short-term investments Short-term investments are valued according to the Swedish Annual Accounts Act as the lowest of either the acquisition value or the actual value. Financial instruments and securities holdings Financial instruments intended to be held to maturity in the business are classified as fixed assets. Financial assets that consist of shares shall be measured at cost less any impairment losses. The assessment is made for each individual class of shares and an impairment loss is recognized if fair value is lower than carrying value or if the impairment is considered to be permanent, a write-down to fair value is made. Other long-term receivables are valued at the sum at which they are calculated to be received. Hedge accounting In order to meet the requirements for hedge accounting, there has to be a designated hedging relationship to the hedged item and the hedge has to be highly effective. Gains and losses on the hedging instrument are recognized at the same time as profit and losses on the hedged items. Hedging of group’s fixed interest rate Interest rate swaps are used for hedging of interest rate risk. Amounts that shall be paid or received according to the interest rate swap are currently recognized as interest income or interest expense. The market value of the interest rate swap is calculated by analyzing discounted cash flows. Real estate The company and the Group apply the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council’s recommendation RR24, Real estate. Real estate is reported in the balance sheet at the acquisition value with deductions for accumulated depreciation and any write-downs, as well as additions for any write-up. The actual value of real estate is stated in the supplementary information. Remuneration to employees Benefit-based pensions: The pensions for SAA were secured through insurance with Collectum. The SAA-group has been sold during the year. Contribution-based pensions: For all other employees, the company’s obligation for each period is comprised of the amounts that the company will contribute for the period in question. Consequently, no actuarial adoption is required to calculate the obligation or cost, and there is no possibility of any actuarial profits or losses.

A N N UA L R EP O R T

Write-downs The booked values of the Group’s assets are checked at each accounting year-end to determine if there is any indication of a need for write-downs. If there is such an indication, the recovery value of the asset is calculated as the highest of the utilisation value and net sales value. The asset is written down if the recovery value is less than the booked value. When calculating the utilisation value, the future cash flow is discounted to a rate of interest before tax that aims to take into consideration the market assessment of risk-free interest and the risk associated with the asset in question. An asset that is dependent on other assets is not considered to generate any independent cash flows. Such an asset is assigned instead to the smallest cash-generating unit where the independent cash flows can be stated.

To the extent that receivables and liabilities in foreign currencies have been secured under a forward contract, they have been translated to the forward rate.


46

Tax The company and the Group apply the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council’s recommendation RR.9, Income taxes. The total tax is made up of the current tax and deferred tax. Taxes are reported in the income statement, except where the underlying transaction is charged to the equity, in which case the associated tax effect is reported in the equity. Current tax is tax that is to be paid or received relating to the current year. Adjustments of current tax relating to earlier periods come into this category. Deferred tax is calculated according to the balance sheet method based on temporary differences between the reported values and fiscal values of assets and liabilities. The sums are calculated based on how the temporary differences are expected to be evened out and by the application of the tax rates and tax rules that have been adopted or announced at accounting year-end. Temporary differences are not taken into account in the goodwill for the Group or in the differences relating to the participations in subsidiaries, associated companies and joint ventures that are not expected to be taxed in the foreseeable future. Untaxed reserves including deferred tax liabilities are reported in the legal entity. In the Consolidated accounts on the other hand, untaxed reserves are divided into deferred tax liabilities and equity. Deferred tax receivables concerning deductible temporary differences and deductible deficiencies are only reported to the extent it is likely that these will mean lower tax payments in the future. Provisions (excluding negative goodwill and deferred tax) A provision is reported in accordance with RR 16, Provisions, contingent liabilities and possible assets, in the balance sheet when the company has a formal or informal commitment as the result of an event that has occurred and it is likely that an outflow of resources is required to regulate the commitment, and that a reliable estimate of the amount can be made. Present value calculations are made to take time effects into account for important future payments. Accounting of income Accounting of income is recognized according to the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council’s recommendation No.11, Income. Income accounting is done in the income statement when it is probable that the future economic benefits will go to the company and these benefits can be calculated in a reliable way. Income includes only the gross inflow of economic benefits that the company receives, or can receive, for its own use. Income is reported at the actual value of what has been received, or will be received, with a deduction for rebates given. Remuneration is received in liquid funds and income is made up of the remuneration. The criteria for income accounting are applied for each individual transaction. Leasing – lessees Recommendation RR 6:99 of the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council is applied. Leasing is classified in the Consolidated accounts as either financial or operational leasing. Financial leasing is used when the economic risks and advantages associated with ownership are essentially transferred to the lessee. If this is not the case, it is a matter of operational leasing. Leasing and rental income are reported on a linear basis over the term of the leasing contract. Finance leases are recognized as assets in the consolidated balance sheet. The obligation to pay future leasing fees is reported with long-term and short-term liabilities. These assets are depreciated according to plan, while payments of the leasing fees are reported as interest expense and a reduction of the outstanding liability. Operational leasing means that the leasing fee is taken in to the profit/loss account over the duration time based on the utilisation, which can differ from the payments during the year. Items affecting comparability The Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council’s recommendation No. 4 is applied, which means that the effects on results of certain events and transactions of importance are specified within the relevant income concepts.

Consolidated financial statements The consolidated financial statements have been prepared according to recommendation RR 1:00 of the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council. Subsidiaries Subsidiaries are companies in which the Parent company directly or indirectly has more than 50% of the votes or in other ways has a deciding influence over operational and financial control. Subsidiaries are reported according to the acquisition method. The acquisition method means that the acquisition of the subsidiary is considered as a transaction from which the Parent company indirectly acquires the assets of the subsidiary and takes over its debts. The income and expenses, identifiable assets and debts as well as the goodwill or negative goodwill of the acquired company are included in the Consolidated accounts from the day of acquisition.

Goodwill Goodwill for the Group arises when the acquisition value on acquiring participations in a subsidiary exceeds the actual value of the acquired company���s identifiable net assets. Goodwill is reported at the acquisition value with deductions for accumulated depreciation and write-downs, if any. Associated companies and joint ventures Shareholdings in associated companies and joint ventures, in which the Group has at least 20% and at most 50% of the votes or in other ways has significant influence over the operation and financial running of the company, are normally reported using the equity method. A joint venture is a contractual business undertaking between two or more parties. The contract means that two or more parties have a joint control. The equity method means that the value of shares in the associated company and the joint venture booked in the Group corresponds to the Group’s participation in the equity of the associated company and the joint venture as well as any residual value in the Group’s overall surplus value or under value. The Group’s participation in the companies result after tax adjusted for any amortization or resolution of acquired surplus or under value is reported in the Consolidated balance sheet as “Participation in associated companies’ result” and ”Participation in joint ventures’ result”. Profit shares built up after the acquisition of companies that have not yet been realised through dividends are allocated to the Group’s restricted equity. In cases where companies make losses, these are included in the Group’s non-restricted equity. The associated company, Nordkap Holding AG and the joint venture VGS Aircraft Holding Ltd have been reported according to IFRS. No translation according to the Parent company’s accounting principles has been possible, due to practical difficulties. Elimination of transactions between companies in the Group Receivables and liabilities within the Group, transactions between companies in the Group, and associated unrealised profits are all totally eliminated. Unrealised profits deriving from transactions with associated companies and joint ventures are eliminated to the extent that the Group owns participations in the companies. Unrealised profits arising as a result of transactions with associated companies and joint ventures are eliminated in “Participations in associated companies” and ”Participation in joint ventures”. Unrealised losses are eliminated in the same way as unrealised profits, providing that there is no write-down requirement. Foreign currency translation of foreign subsidiaries or other operations abroad The translation of foreign currencies is done according to recommendation No.8 of the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council. The current method is applied for currency translation of income statements and balance sheets in independent foreign operations. The current method means that all assets, provisions and liabilities are translated at the accounting year-end rate, and that all items in the income statement are translated at the average exchange rate. Exchange rate differences are posted as equity. All foreign subsidiaries, associated companies and joint ventures are translated according to the current method.

Group contributions and shareholders’ contributions The company reports Group contributions and the shareholders’ contributions according to the pronouncements of the Emerging Issues Task Force of the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council. The shareholders’ contribution is entered directly against equity at the recipient and is activated in shares and participations at the donor, to the extent that a write-down is not required. Group contributions are reported according to economic significance. This means that the Group contributions submitted aimed at minimising the Group’s total tax are reported directly against retained profits after deduction for the current tax effect. Group contributions on par with a dividend are reported as a dividend. This means that the Group contributions received and their current tax effect are reported in the income statement. The Group contributions submitted and their current tax effect are reported directly against retained profits. Group contributions on par with a shareholders’ contribution are reported, taking into account the current tax effect, at the recipient directly against retained profits. The donor reports the Group contribution and its current tax effect as investment in participations in Group companies to the extent that a write-down is not required.

Application of the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council’s recommendations The Volito Group has chosen to follow the recommendations of the Swedish Financial Accounting Standards Council. There are no changes in the accounting principles since last year.

The change in the Parent company between years has been shown as deferred tax expenses/income, except those amounts that according to note 38 are charged directly against equity. Deferred taxes are valued based on the nominal rate of tax. The only exception to this rule is the acquisition of material assets in which the tax assessment was a significant part of the business transaction when the deferred tax is valued based on the purchase price. All deferred taxes have been valued at a nominal amount on 31 December 2010 (the same applies for the previous year). Unreported deferred recoverable taxes Deductible temporary differences and fiscal deductible deficiencies for which deferred recoverable taxes have not been reported in the income statement and balance sheet:

Note 37 Financial instruments and financial risk management Finance policy Financial risks refer to changes in exchange rates and interest rates that affect the company’s cash flow, profit/loss and thereby the related shareholders’ equity. Financial risks also include credit risks and refinancing risks. Exposure applying to the different operations is presented quarterly for the respective companies’ boards, which make current decisions regarding financial risk management based on the market situation and macroeconomic information. Below is a summary of the Group’s loan portfolio divided according to currency and due dates.

Volito’s policy concerning borrowing is that the due dates for loans shall be spread over time. The policy relating to interest is that the fixed term periods for the portfolio shall be well balanced and assessed at all times against the company’s current view of the interest rate market. Part of Volito’s borrowing is linked to the fulfilment of financial key ratios. These key ratios are followed up on a continuous basis and constitute part of the management’s daily framework for the financial planning of the business. Currency risks The Volito Group is exposed to exchange rate changes mainly in the US dollar through its involvement in the Volito Aviation group. Income in the form of leasing fees is USD-based and is set against amortisation and interest payments on loans, which are similarly USD-based. The results of VGS are reported as a share in joint ventures. Exchange rate differences related to translation of VGS are posted in the equity. The Volito Group’s holding in Nordkap Bank AG is partly hedged against changes in the CHF exchange rate through certain borrowings in CHF. However, a certain amount of the holding is exposed to changes in the CHF exchange rate. Exchange rate differences related to translation of the foreign subsidiary are posted under equity.

Refinancing risks The Volito Group depends on a functioning credit market. The Group has a need to continuously refinance parts of its business, see note 39. The Group has a satisfactory equity ratio and loan capacity. It is therefore Volito’s assessment that there is at present no problem concerning the credit that is due for refinancing.

Note 38 Equity Share capital The Group Balance carried forward according to balance sheet of 31 December 2008

Equity on 31 December 2009

Taken together, the Volito Group’s total loans that are exposed to short-term interest rates is SEK 906 million (892). During 2005, the Volito Group began to manage part of its interest rate risks using interest rate swaps. The hedging relating to 48.6% of the debt portfolio in the Volito Fastigheter AB group is managed with swaps, something that gives the company a higher degree of flexibility in terms of future debt management. The nominal amounts on Volito Fastigheter’s outstanding interest rate swaps as of 31 December amounted to SEK 381.3 million (380.7). As of 31 December the fixed interest rates varied from 2.58% (2.58 %) to 4.03 % (4.89 %) and floating interest rates are STIBOR 3 months plus a margin for borrowing in SEK .

The Board of Volito has decided to accept the exposure for USD and CHF according to the above, as this exposure in itself constitutes a risk diversification within the Volito Group. The extent of this exposure will be decided according to continuous review. Interest risks The Volito Group is exposed to changes mainly in short-term interest rates though its involvement in the groups Volito Fastigheter AB and SAA AB. Within the Parent company, Volito AB, there is also an exposure relating to short-term interest rates.

Audit Report - translation

To the annual meeting of the shareholders of Volito AB Corporate identity number 556457-4639 We have audited the annual accounts, the accounting records and the administration of the board of directors and the managing director of Volito AB for the year 2010. The annual accounts are presented in the printed version of this document on pages 34-57. These accounts and the administration of the company and the application of the Annual Accounts Act when preparing the annual accounts are the responsibility of the board of directors and the managing director. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the annual accounts and the administration based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards in Sweden. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain high but not absolute assurance that the annual accounts are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the accounts. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and their application by the board of directors and the managing director and significant estimates made by the board of directors and the managing director when preparing the annual accounts as well as evaluating the overall presentation of information in the annual accounts. As a basis for our opinion concerning discharge from liability, we examined signi­ficant decisions, actions taken and circumstances of the company in order to be able to determine the liability, if any, to the company of any board member or the managing director. We also examined whether any board member or the managing director has, in any other way, acted in contravention of the Companies Act, the Annual Accounts Act or the Articles of Association. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion set out below. The annual accounts have been prepared in accordance with the Annual Accounts Act and give a true and fair view of the company's financial position and results of operations in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in Sweden. The statutory administration report is consistent with the other parts of the annual accounts. We recommend to the annual meeting of shareholders that the income statement and balance sheet be adopted, that the profit be dealt with in accordance with the proposal in the administration report and that the members of the board of directors and the managing director be discharged from liability for the financial year.
