In 2015, recovered accounts receivable mainly refers to revaluation of receivables relating to improved forecasts of future collection amounts. In the last quarter of 2015, a goodwill write-down of SEK 1,900 million was recognized in the cash-generating unit Denmark, as a result of the updated earnings projections following the decision to withdraw from the proposed joint venture with Telenor, affecting impairment losses. For more information on impairment losses, see Notes C12 “Goodwill and other intangible assets” and C13 “Property, plant and equipment.” Restructuring costs mainly comprised staff redundancy costs.
