2019: Growth held back by Brexit

We see continued headwind in 2020. Most importantly, we have to be cautious on the UK market outlook due to uncertainty about the Brexit outcome. On the positive side, our strategic initiatives are moving forward as planned and earnings are therefore still expected to grow in 2020.
