My non-business perspective on this is that it is a very good thing for the people of Sweden.  I also believe that the Swedish government made a very good choice in agreeing to this exchange of land.

This swap is a good thing for the people of Sweden because it will help them to have more chances to enjoy nature.  From the article, it appears that the land that Holmen is turning over to the government is land that is full of interesting flora and fauna.  Some of it also provides people with recreational and educational opportunities that are not related to flora and fauna.  If the Swedish government can get this land in exchange for land that would be less interesting to people, it will benefit everyone.  The people will get interesting land as part of a variety of nature reserves and Holmen will not lose any money. 

I believe that the swap was a good idea on the part of the government.  It is always a good thing when governments and private companies can cooperate instead of acting as antagonists.  This allows the Swedish government to provide more nature reserves without having to spend money on buying the land and without having to fight to get that land.

In short, from a non-business perspective, this seems to be a great deal for all concerned.
