During the course of the preliminary investigation, Ilija Batljan has rejected all allegations and has been fully cooperative during the investigation. The company, SBB, has never been an object of the investigation.

“I am relieved but not surprised over the prosecutor’s decision. For me, it is now all about continuing with full force as CEO of SBB – and to continue delivering results together with our strong team. Our focus is, as always, to be a reliable and long-term social participant who in a sustainable way delivers shareholder value, good profitability and strong results”, says Ilija Batljan, CEO and Founder of SBB.

“That the preliminary investigation has been withdrawn is good news. Now we can resume our full focus on the ordinary course of business where SBB as the largest Nordic property company in social infrastructure continues to deliver long-term and sustainable values”, says Lennart Schuss, Chairman of the Board of SBB.
