* Mycab divested Tågtaxi at MSEK 17,5
* Commencement of International bookings
As a strategic move, related to Mycabs shift towards international products and the restructuring of the Swedish operations, Mycab divested its Swedish train transfer product known as Tågtaxi to its local partner Flygtaxi Sverige AB at a price of 17,5 MSEK in second quarter.
Tågtaxi operations are limited to the Swedish market, with an annual sale at 25 MSEK. The product has been corporatized whose shares now are disposed of to Flygtaxi Sverige AB.
The proceeds from Tågtaxi are in cash by instalments during 2012 and 2013. The entire consideration constitutes capital gain and the entire amount will be recognized as revenue during 2012. In the second quarter KEUR 965 has been recorded as revenue.
The divestment of Tågtaxi is in line with Mycab Group international strategy, which is focusing on international flight transfers where the support functions are shifted to low cost countries in Asia. In this shift, Tågtaxi is deemed to benefit more with a Swedish owner, which can provide relevant local conditions for future development.

OTHER GROUP INFORMATION

Assessment of Risk Environment
Growth is crucial for Mycab before it can achieve its projected financial objectives, which in turn is entirely depended on how well the international rollout succeeds. Current business, (acquired by Mycab International SA in 2011), is primarily emanating from the Swedish market where the business, historically, has not met its growth objectives. However the new set up, compared to the previous operation in Sweden, is two pronged. Firstly there is an international perspective and secondly a focusing on online e-commerce. A new IT- platform, Netsys™ V5, has been developed to accommodate the new strategy but still has the pilot phase to accomplish. Although the international market for Mycab business is many times larger than the Swedish market alone, Mycab cannot guarantee that projected growth objectives are met within time frame.
Future earnings are primarily depended on the group's ability to sustain required margins despite growth. Since Mycab intends to grow with profit there is a risk that growth may implicate pressure on margins due to competition. A large part of the group costs is fixed, in a medium term perspective, and thus earnings are highly susceptible in relation margin and volume, thus Mycab cannot guarantee that projected growth with profit is met.
