CEO COMMENTS Commercial update Bellman Group completed the acquisition of the machine contracting company, VSM Entreprenad AB, as of July 17, 2018. VSM is a machine contracting company with operations primarily comprised of rock and gravel handling at stationary and mobile crushing plants, earth excavation involving roads, tunnelling, construction development and civil engineering, as well as of the rental of heavy machinery. VSM conducts its operations in Sweden and Norway through its subsidiaries and associated companies. For the financial year 2017, VSM’s sales amounted to SEK 557 million and the adjusted EBITDA for the same period amounted to SEK 94 million. The Bellman Group’s revenue for the financial year 2017, calculated proforma including VSM, amounted to SEK 1.385 million, and the adjusted EBITDA for the same period was SEK 157 million. Through this acquisition, Bellman Group strengthens its position within the machine contracting sector and broadens its operations to include Norway. Profit decline during the second quarter During the second quarter, the Bellman Group reported a revenue decline of 5% and a profit decline of 22% compared with the comparative period in the prior year, mainly as a result of fewer accepted low margin projects at MST, revenue shortfall at Bellmans (lower level of sales of material, allocated costs relating to the new Group headquarters and an improved quality in the financial reporting of provisions). For the period January to June 2018, the Bellman Group reported a revenue decline of 2% and a profit decline of 9% compared with the same period in the prior year for the same reasons as described above. However, it should be noted that MST delivered a profit growth of 24% for the period January to June 2018 as a result of significantly improved gross margins, driven by strong project performance. Operational update During the second quarter, MST has continued to see a positive effect from the investments in five drilling-rigs purchased from a competitor in December 2017. Margins have improved as a result of replacing sub-contractors with own machines and personnel. Operationally, MST has had a stable first quarter, with a high capacity utilization, whilst Bellmans has seen a slowdown in the sale of material compared with the corresponding period prior year. Outlook We believe that during the forthcoming reporting periods, we will deliver sales and profits in line with expectations. Overall, we believe in a strong market for our services during the next few years, even though we have noted that the market conditions for housing construction could be less favourable going forward. The Bellman Group’s business plan for the next 3-year period includes growth in terms of both volume and profit. This target will be achieved through organic growth, as well as through acquisitions. Håkan Lind CEO

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL INFORMATION 1 Summary of significant accounting policies Significant accounting policies applied in preparing these consolidated financial statements are described below. Unless otherwise stated, these policies have been applied consistently for all the periods presented. All amounts presented in the financial statements refer to millions of Swedish kronor (SEK million) unless otherwise indicated. 1.1. Basis of preparation of financial statements The consolidated financial statements for Bellman Group have been prepared in accordance with the Swedish Annual Accounts Act, Recommendation RFR 1 Supplementary Financial Reporting Rules for Corporate Groups of the Swedish Financial Reporting Board, the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and the interpretations of the IFRS Interpretations Committee (IFRS IC), as adopted by the EU. This Interim Report has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting and the Swedish Annual Accounts Act. The Parent Company applies Recommendation RFR 2 Financial Reporting for Legal Entities of the Swedish Financial Reporting Board and the Swedish Annual Accounts Act. The accounting principles and calculation methods applied in the interim report are consistent with those described in the 2017 Annual Report with the exception of the new standards, IFRS 9 Financial Instruments and IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers, applying from 1 January 2018. The implementation of the new standards has not had any material impact on the Group’s financial statements. In accordance with IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers, there is a new disclosure requirement which has had no impact on the manner in which the Group discloses its revenues in Note 3. No other IFRS or IFRIC interpretations which have not, to date, become effective, are expected to have any material impact on the Group. For further information regarding the Group’s applied accounting principles, see the Group’s Annual Report for 2017. 2 Important estimates and judgments regarding the accounting Estimates and judgments are evaluated on an ongoing basis and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations regarding future events which are seen to be reasonable under the circumstances at hand. Company management deem that there is no significant information, nor judgments in the accounts regarding future developments or other important sources of uncertainty in the estimates undertaken at balance sheet date, which would imply a significant risk of a major adjustment in the reported values of the assets and liabilities during the foreseeable future. 3 Segment information Description of segments and principal business activities: The Bellman Group’s senior management team, comprised of the Group CEO, Group CFO and the chief executives of the subsidiaries, constitutes the chief operating decision maker in the Bellman Group and evaluates the Group’s financial position and results, and makes strategic decisions.

Senior management monitors the operations based on the two operating segments MST and Bellmans, as well as regards the Other segment. Senior management primarily applies EBITDA in monitoring the Group’s results. MST Rock blasting, rock drilling and excavation services. Bellmans Transport and excavation services in the construction sector. Other segment Senior management and other central services.

4 Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss The fair value hierarchy: This section describes the estimates and judgements applied in determining the fair values of financial instruments measured at fair value in the financial statements. In order to provide an indication of the reliability of the inputs used in determining fair value, the Group has classified the financial instruments at Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy. In cases in which one or several significant inputs are not based on observable market information, the instrument is included in Level 3. SEK million

No transfers between the levels were made during the period. Valuation techniques used in determining fair value: The fair values of derivatives have been determined based on present value, and the applied discount rate has been adjusted for own credit risk. Unobservable inputs refer to the risk-adjusted discount rate and expected cash flows. Measurement at fair value using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3): The following table shows changes in Level 3 instruments in the current period.

**) Includes unrealised gains or losses recognised in the income statement attributable to balances held at the end of the reporting period.

Measurement inputs and their relationship to fair value: Changes in unobservable inputs used in determining fair value as regards Level 3 are not considered to give rise to any significant changes which would materially impact fair value. The Group’s Finance Department includes members of staff undertaking measurements of balance sheet items for financial reporting, including Level 3 fair value measurements. The major Level 3 inputs are analysed at the end of each reporting period. 5 Transactions with related parties No transactions between the Bellman Group and related parties significantly impacting the Group’s financial position or results took place during the period. 6 Business combination No business combinations took place during the period. 7 Pledged assets No significant changes in assets pledged as security took place in the period. 8 Interest bearing liabilities No essential changes in Interest bearing liabilities took place during the period. The Parent Company has issued corporate bonds, which were listed on the NASDAQ First North market in Stockholm on 10 August 2017. The instrument is listed as Bellman Group 1 with 220 units. The total outstanding nominal amount is SEK 220.0 million and the nominal value per unit is SEK 1.0 million. Financing costs of SEK 6.8 million attributable to the bonds have been capitalised as regards the loan. The interest rate on the bonds is variable three-month STIBOR plus 6.50 per cent. This interest is payable quarterly in arrears. The bonds mature in June 2022. The Parent Company has posted collateral for the bonds in the form of shares in subsidiaries. The terms and conditions of the bonds include an early redemption option. This option is accounted for as a derivative and is classified as a financial asset at fair value through profit or loss. The terms and conditions of the bonds are available on the website of Bellman Group AB (publ), www.bellmangroup.se. The vendor loan is for SEK 58.5 million, of which SEK 19.5 million is a current liability and SEK 39.0 million is a non-current liability. The vendor loan is interest-free and is not secured by collateral. Under the terms and conditions of the loan, the first installments are due in 2018 and the loan must be fully repaid by 2020. The carrying amount of the majority of the Group’s borrowings approximates the fair value of the loan. This is due to the fact that the interest rates on the borrowings is in parity with current market interest rates and is also due to the fact that the borrowings are short-term. The only significant difference that has been identified in this context refers to the vendor loan, which has a carrying amount of SEK 39.0 million and a fair value of SEK 36.8 million based on discounted cash flows applying an estimated market interest rate –applicable -to the Group. 9 Shares

DEFINITIONS AND USE OF NON-INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL REPORTING STANDARDS (IFRS) EARNINGS MEASURES Descriptions of financial performance measures and descriptions of earnings measures which are not used in the IFRS regulations. The alternative financial measures which have not been calculated in accordance with IFRS and which are presented in this report do not constitute recognised valuation principles for financial position or liquidity in accordance with IFRS but are used by the Bellman Group to monitor the Group’s financial performance and financial position. The alternative performance measures presented in the report must always be assessed in conjunction with the information presented in the income statement, balance sheet and statement of cash flows, and with performance measures calculated in accordance with IFRS. The Bellman Group presents these alternative financial measures due to the fact that it considers that they constitute important supplementary measures of profitability and financial position, and because these measures are often used by external stakeholders to assess and compare different companies’ financial performance and financial positions. When comparing the alternative financial measures presented here, it should be noted that calculations for other companies may have been undertaken applying different definitions, which means that the figures will not be directly comparable. Term Cash flow from operating activities

Description Operating profit adjusted for non-cash items, sales of machinery and equipment, and changes in working capital.

Earnings per share

Profit for the year attributable to Parent Company shareholders divided by average number of outstanding ordinary shares.

EBITDA

Profit before net financial income/expense, tax, depreciation, amortisation and impairment. EBITDA is a measure which the Group considers to be relevant for investors who want to understand the company’s earnings performance before investments in non-current assets.

EBITDA margin

Equity/assets ratio

Equity including non-controlling interests, expressed as a percentage of total assets. This key ratio is used to show financial risk, expressed as the percentage of total assets that is financed by the owners.

Items which occur rarely or are unusual in the ordinary course of business, such as start-up costs, restructuring costs and acquisition costs.

Net interest-bearing debt

Interest-bearing liabilities less cash and cash equivalents. This key ratio shows the Group’s total interest-bearing liabilities.

Revenues

The Group recognises revenue when the amount can be reliably measured, it is probable that future economic benefits will accrue to the company and specific criteria have been met for each of the Group’s businesses. For time and materials service contracts, revenue is recognised in the period in which the services are performed.

Operating margin

Operating profit as a percentage of revenues for the period.

Order backlog

The value of remaining, not yet accrued project revenues from orders on hand at the end of the period.

Order intake

The value of received projects and changes to existing projects during the period concerned.

Working capital is calculated as current operating assets (inventories, trade receivables and other current non-interest-bearing receivables) less current operating liabilities (trade payables and other current non-interest-bearing liabilities). This measure shows the amount of working capital tied up in operating activities and can be expressed as a percentage of revenues to gain an understanding of how efficiently tied-up working capital is being utilised.
