Half-year Report January–June 2017

  • Gross profit rose by 4 per cent to SEK 643 million (616). The increase can be attributed mainly to higher rental revenue.
  • Net revenue amounted to SEK 905 million (870), an increase of 4 per cent.
  • Profit after tax for the period was SEK 1,625 million (1,649), equivalent to SEK 7.88 per share (7.99). The decrease can be attributed mainly to a lower unrealized change in the value of the property holdings.
