CONTENTS PAGE Comments (I-VI) 2 Accounts 10 Key data 12 The Drott share 14 - Comments - I. Considerable investments and increased focus on Stockholm · Strong Stockholm market The consensus forecast for Sweden indicates continued GDP growth during the years immediately ahead, with the growth rate in Stockholm expected to be twice as high as the national average. During the past six years, 88,000 new jobs have been created in the region and the population has increased by 120,000, corresponding to a net population inflow of 20,000 per year. Growth is being fueled by successful commercial and industrial developments, particularly in such fast-growing sectors as telecommunications and IT, industries in which Stockholm has attained a leading international position. GDP growth results in increased demand for commercial premises and housing, and Drott's assessment is that growth in rental revenues and real estate values in the Stockholm region will be significantly higher than in other parts of the country. - Commercial premises Recently completed transactions in the real estate market indicate that the favorable price trend noted during recent years has continued into 2000. Rent levels have also continued to rise. The total vacancy rate for offices in the Stockholm region is now approximately 5% and demand is still outpacing the supply of new premises. During the three years immediately ahead, the addition of about 0.5 million square meters of new office space is expected, corresponding to approximately 5% of total office space in the region. - Housing Prices of tenant-owned apartments in central Stockholm have risen by more than 50% in the past two years. Very high demand for housing combined with limited new production indicates that the upward price trend will continue. As apartment prices rise, Drott has noted that its tenants are showing an increased interest in acquiring the apartments in which they live1. To date, up to August 21 this year, Drott has sold seven Stockholm properties to tenant-owner associations at prices that have been an average of 28% higher than the independent property appraisals made at December 31, 1999. Following central rent negotiations during the spring, housing rents in Stockholm were increased by 1.95% as of July 1, 2000, with an additional average rise of 2.2% to become effective on January 1, 2001. · Major acquisitions in Stockholm During the first half of this year, Drott acquired two large portfolios mainly comprising commercial premises in Stockholm. - Fastighets AB Balder As of June 30, 2000, following a public offer submitted on February 9, Drott had acquired slightly more than 98% of the shares in Balder and had initiated compulsory redemption of the remaining shares outstanding. The investment, which totaled SEK 3,394 M, is being financed through loans. As of April 1, 2000, Balder is consolidated in Drott's accounts, whereby Balder's revenues and expenses are included as of the same date. Based on the value of Drott's offer for the Balder shares, Balder's properties are included in an amount of SEK 11,927 M in the Drott Group's balance sheet at April 1, 2000. This value is confirmed by both the independent valuation of SEK 12.7 billion presented by Drott at December 31, 1999 and by the review of Balder's real estate portfolio that Drott implemented in accordance with the principles of the Swedish Real Estate Index /IPD. The costs associated with the merger (excluding the acquisition of shares), which totaled SEK 66 M, have been taken into account in the purchase calculation and, accordingly, have no impact on earnings for the period. - Ericsson properties In June, Drott acquired 14 properties from Ericsson for SEK 2.0 billion, with takeover as of September 1, 2000. The acquisition strengthens Drott's position in the Stockholm region, particularly in Kista, where the Group attains an additional 54,000 square meters plus a 100,000 square meter development right. Eight industrial properties in other parts of Sweden account for one fourth of the acquisition. Following the transaction, Ericsson accounts for 11% of Drott's total rental revenues. · Stockholm share increases Since Drott's IPO two years ago, the Group's annual rental revenues (incl. vacant space) have risen from SEK 1.3 billion to SEK 4.0 billion, with Stockholm accounting for the largest increase. REGIONAL DISTRIBUTION OF RENTAL REVENUES, JUNE 30, 20002 Annual rental revenues (incl. Commerci Housing Tota vacant space), SEK M al l Inner city 606 171 777 Globen, Marievik, Alvik 384 - 384 Kista 362 - 362 Other, Stockholm region3 628 208 836 Stockholm region 1 980 379 2 359 Öresund region 234 229 463 Gothenburg 161 263 424 Rest of Sweden 501 161 662 Outside Sweden 74 - 74 Total 2 950 1 032 3 982 In terms of value, Stockholm accounts for more than 70%. · More efficient capital structure Following the acquisitions described above, Drott has attained its desired capital structure. As a result of the security represented by strong cash flows from large, successful commercial tenants, and from nearly 20,000 tenants in tenant-owned apartments, Drott's equity/assets ratio has been reduced from nearly 100% to 30-35%4 - that is, to the level indicated in the Listing Particulars issued two years ago. Following the Balder and Ericsson acquisitions, the Group's annual cash flow from continuing real estate management operations amounts to approximately SEK 1 billion, which represents considerable stability in the face of changes in the rental and credit markets5. In addition, the existing leases provide potential for rent increases. For example, the average rent for Drott's existing leases in central Stockholm amounts to approximately SEK 2,000 per square meter, which is much lower than the level resulting from leases currently being signed. II. Income statement January-June 2000 The figures within parentheses below pertain to the first half of 1999 · Rental revenues and operating surplus The Group's rental revenues amounted to SEK 1,530 M (1,235). The change between the two periods is affected by acquisitions (the Balder properties are included as of April 1, 2000), divestments and changes in the identical portfolio (renegotiated leases and new leases). Based on an identical portfolio6, rental revenues increased by SEK 93 M, or 6%, compared with the year-earlier period. The occupancy ratio at June 30, 2000 was 95% (94). Due to a rise in rebuilding activity, the number of evacuated premises has increased, which had an adverse impact on the occupancy ratio7. The operating surplus rose to SEK 947 M (744). Based on an identical portfolio6 the operating surplus rose by SEK 87 M, or 10%. Rental revenues and the operating surplus for the period were adversely affected by the fact that the acquired properties initially generate a lower yield than the sold properties. However, the operating surplus from the acquired properties is expected to develop more favorably than that for the sold properties. · Operating profit Operating profit amounted to SEK 1,120 M (978), of which gains from sales of properties accounted for SEK 343 M (350). A repayment of surplus funds from SPP is not included in operating profit for the period but will be taken into account in the nine-month report. · Net financial items Interest expense amounted to SEK 406 M (305). The increase in interest expense was due entirely to the acquisition of Balder. At the end of the period, the average interest rate for Drott's loans was of 5.08% and the average period of fixed interest was 2.1 years. A gain of SEK 11 M on sales of shares8 had a favorable effect on net financial items. Interest subsidies decreased according to plan to SEK 15 M (23). As a result of the acquisition of Balder, project activities increased through the addition of a number of very large projects. Accordingly, it has become more important to report interest payments during the construction period as accurately as possible. Drott has therefore decided that interest - SEK 23 M -on the portion of the loan volume that finances large projects shall be included in the acquisition value (and not, as in the past, be expensed). This new principle provides a more accurate picture of both total investments during the period and continuing earnings from real estate management. Since the effects resulting from previous periods were insignificant, the figures for the comparative period have not been adjusted. · Pretax profit for the period Pretax profit for the period rose by SEK 47 M to SEK 749 M (702). The improvement was due primarily to higher profit from continuing real estate management operations (+43). In addition, profit was affected by lower gains from sales of properties (-7) and the sale of a shareholding (+11). - Continuing real estate management operations9 Pretax profit from management operations rose to SEK 395 M (352). A higher operating surplus for an identical portfolio had a positive impact on profit, while the main negative factor was the fact that acquisitions were effected at a lower average yield compared with sales. Profit from management operations after taxes rose to SEK 343 M (302). · Net profit for the period Net profit for the period amounted to SEK 520 M (587), after tax costs of SEK 229 M (115). The increased proportion of taxes was due entirely to gains from property sales. Effective December 31, 1999, the Groups properties were written up by SEK 3,600 M (corresponding to 72% of the excess value of the properties according to the external property appraisal dated December 31, 1999). The acquisition value of the properties for tax purposes is not affected by the write-up, which means that the taxable capital gain if and when any of the properties is sold will be the same as it would be if the write-up had not occurred. However, the capital gain reportable for accounting purposes if and when any of the properties is sold will be lower following the write-up (difference = write-up amount). III. Balance sheet at June 30, 2000 The figures within parentheses below pertain to December 31, 1999 · Properties During the period, Drott acquired 240 properties with a total of 1,750,000 square meters of floor space for SEK 14.2 billion, of which the Balder properties account for SEK 11.9 billion and the Ericsson properties for SEK 2.0 billion. A total of 47 properties were sold for SEK 2.4 billion, seven of which accounted for SEK 1,8 billion10. Gains from sales of properties totaled SEK 343 M. At June 30, 2000, Drott owned 731 (538) properties, booked at SEK 35,648 M (23,321), with 4,395,000 (2,932,000) square meters of rentable space.

Total current assets in the Drott Group amounted to SEK 1,007 M (719). These include current receivables related to properties sold during the period but not yet taken over by the purchaser. · Shareholders' equity Shareholders' equity in the Group amounted to SEK 10,165 M (9,995), represented by 101,688,759 shares.. · Provisions Provisions totaled SEK 807 M (280), of which SEK 760 M (250) was attributable to a provision for deferred tax. · Interest-bearing liabilities On June 30, 2000, the Drott Group's interest-bearing liabilities totaled SEK 22,197 M (12,510), with an average interest rate of 5.1% (4.7) and an average term of fixed interest of 2.1 years (1.8). The financing of major projects in progress accounted for SEK 1.1 billion of the liabilities. A. Committed lines of credit During the year, Drott renegotiated and signed new agreements regarding a credit volume totaling approximately SEK 15 billion, and thus secured access to loan capital for many years ahead. At June 30, 2000, Drott had committed lines of credit amounting to SEK 24.2 billion and other unutilized lines of credit amounting to SEK 1.9 billion. The weighted duration for utilized volume (SEK 22.2 billion) was 5.2 years (3.8). The longer duration of the loan portfolio was negotiated at virtually unchanged margins in relation to STIBOR. Following midyear, Drott has renegotiated most of the loans scheduled for rearrangement during 2001. The weighted duration for the loan portfolio was extended to approximately 6 years. More than 70% of the loan portfolio is scheduled for renegotiation during 2005 or later. B. Terms of fixed interest Drott's policy is to have an average fixed-interest term of two years +/- 12 months. In order to attain the desired fixed-interest term, Drott makes use of the derivatives market. At June 30, 2000, Drott's portfolio of derivatives had a nominal value of SEK 8.8 billion, with an average interest rate that was lower than the market rate. The discounted added value of the portfolio of derivatives and loan portfolio amounted to SEK 200 M.

At the Annual General Meeting for 2000, the Board of Directors was authorized to purchase a maximum of 10% percent of the shares in Drott up to the time of the next Annual General Meeting. VI. Forecast for 2000 The market for office rentals continues to be very buoyant, particularly in Stockholm, and the acquisitions completed in 2000 will gradually have a favorable impact on profit and cash flow. For full-year 2000, Drott is expected to show an increase in profit from management operations and thus a significant improvement in cash flow. In addition, there will be capital gains, which amounted to SEK 378 M up to August 21.

Annual rental revenues (incl. vacant space) from the Ericsson properties amount to SEK 249 M. 3 Solna, Danderyd, Årsta, Danvikstull, Huddinge, Botkyrka, Haninge, among others. 4 Adjusted equity/assets ratio based on independent valuations at December 31, 1999. 5 Long-term binding loan commitments (average of 6 years) and an average period of fixed interest of slightly more than two years provide additional stability in the face of changes in credit market (see below). 6 Incl. Balder's properties. 7 According to Drott's accounting principles, premises are reported as vacant until rental revenues start to accrue. This also applies to cases in which leases for the premises have already been signed. 8 Pertains to shares in OM-Gruppen AB, which were received via the acquisition of Näckebro. 9 See definitions on page 13. 10 World Fashion Centre (Amsterdam), Arenan 1 (Stockholm), Masthugget 11:13 (Gothenburg), Vagnen 2 (Lidköping) and Hålsjön 2 and Svansjön 3+4 (Malmö). 11 Including 50% of properties in 50%-owned companies (10 properties). 12 A specification of the properties acquired/sold by Drott during 2000 may be ordered from Drott - call Ingemo Österberg (Tel: +46-8-545 83 011). 13 In accordance with recommendation No. 7 of the Financial Accounting Standards Council, an adjustment has been made compared with Drott's report on the first six months of 1999. 14 If the write-ups of properties that were implemented in 1998 and 1999 (SEK 786 and SEK 3,600 M respectively) were charged with full tax, shareholders' equity would be reduced as follows: June 1999: SEK 219 M; Dec 1999: SEK 1,228 M; June 2000; SEK 1,126 M. 15 In June 1999, Drott raised a convertible debenture loan in an amount of SEK 46.2 M with preferential rights for Drott employees in Sweden. To date, employees have subscribed for SEK 43.1 M, while the remaining convertible debentures have been subscribed by a wholly owned subsidiary of Drott AB for future allotment to employees. Conversion may occur no later than April 30, 2004 at a price of SEK 84. Based on full conversion, the number of Series B Drott shares will increase by 550,000. The dilution effect resulting from possible conversion to shares has not been taken into account in the summary of key data, since such dilution will have only a minor impact on key data. ------------------------------------------------------------ This information was brought to you by Waymaker http://www.waymaker.net The following files are available for download: http://www.waymaker.net/bitonline/2001/08/07/20010807BIT00260/bit0001.doc http://www.waymaker.net/bitonline/2001/08/07/20010807BIT00260/bit0001.pdf
