Statement from the CEO Ulf Nilsson
The third quarter of the year has been characterised by a consolidation of the business and we are now beginning to harvest the fruits of the very high level of activity over the preceding 18 months. This quarter demonstrates that efficient management and renovation of our properties yields a good financial return. The adjusted shareholders' equity on September 30 amounted to SEK 60.5 per share , an increase of 25 % compared with 12 months earlier. During the quarter, we also completed the acquisition of approximately 1,300 additional apartments in Stockholm and Norrköping. We also entered into agreements to sell our properties in Gothenburg since they are not within our geographic area of operations. We have also reorganised our structure for renovating apartments, which means that we will be achieving our internal targets during the year.
During the period, we entered into contracts with additional suppliers of materials and construction firms and expanded the central management of the business. During and after the quarter, we commenced approximately 300 renovations, making us confident that we will achieve our forecast of renovating approximately 500 apartments in 2015. We also believe that we will achieve a rolling annual pace of 1,000 apartments per year during the fourth quarter.
Taken as a whole, improvements have led to a strong improvement in reported profit. The profit for the quarter before tax is a full SEK 202 million, which can be compared with SEK 19 million for the third quarter of 2014. The profit per share after tax amounted to SEK 2.71, as compared with SEK 0.13 for the third quarter of 2014. This yields a profit after tax for the first nine months of the year of SEK 405 million which corresponds to SEK 5.72 per share.
