“During the fourth quarter, we continued to consolidate and strengthen EHAB’s balance sheet, which resulted in new financing projects, structured processes, and in-depth operational work with our portfolio companies. The current economic conditions challenge the entire company group, and we are therefore positive that a majority of the portfolio continues to deliver stable financial results. EHAB’s highest priority is to position the company for long-term value creation, and we are convinced that our initiatives are taking us in the right direction.”Saeid Esmaeilzadeh
