These estimates are interesting, but it can be useful to paint some more broad strokes when seeing how forecasts compare, both to the KlaraBo Sverige’s past performance and to peers in the same industry. It’s pretty clear that there is an expectation that KlaraBo Sverige’s revenue growth will slow down substantially, with revenues to the end of 2024 expected to display 10% growth on an annualised basis.

So it’s pretty clear that, while KlaraBo Sverige’s revenue growth is expected to slow, it’s still expected to grow faster than the industry itself.

Happily, there were no major changes to revenue forecasts, with the business still expected to grow faster than the wider industry.
