Year-End Report 2012

  • Gross profit from property management increased by 13 per cent and amounted to SEK 1,065 million (945), due mainly to higher rents and additional net operating income arising from property acquisitions and investments.

  • Profit after tax for the year was SEK 1,939 million (1,435), equivalent to SEK 9.40 per share (6.96). The increase can be attributed to non-recurring revenue due to lower deferred tax following a reduction in corporation tax.
