The Government proposes a capital injection of SEK 150 million to Lernia
The Government proposes a capital injection of SEK 150 million to Lernia AB in the amending budget to be presented to the Riksdag today. This capital injection will give Lernia the conditions to strengthen its financial standing to be able to continue its activities in the area of adult education and staffing.
Lernia is currently facing a challenging financial situation, which is further aggravated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, in the long term the company is considered to have good prospects for continuing activities in its different areas and generating a commercial return for central government. The Government has therefore decided to seek the Riksdag’s mandate to invest SEK 150 million in the company as a capital injection.
Like the rest of the education, training and staffing sector, Lernia will play an important role in the coming years in meeting the needs for skills supply, reorientation, recruitment and matching.
