President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Hallgren comments:

  • The value of Catena’s property at Stora Frösunda, Solna, continues to increase as work on the detailed development plan proceeds. The increase in value was SEK 29 M during the first quarter of 2011. The new detailed development plan is scheduled to be exhibited during the third quarter of 2011 and the City Planning Committee and the Municipal Council are expected to issue their decisions during the fourth quarter of 2011.
  • The divestment of Catena’s entire property portfolio, with the exception of the Stora Frösunda property, was implemented on February 15, 2011. Following the sale to Balder, Catena’s Annual General Meeting has decided to change the company’s registered office from Gothenburg to Solna.
