PANDOX ACQUIRES THE HOTEL PROPERTY FOGG'S HOTEL IN STOCKHOLM

The acquisition price, including the acquisition cost is 122 MSEK. The operating net, after the signing of the new lease, is estimated to be 10,1 MSEK. On a yearly basis this will correspond to a yield of 8,3 percent. Pandox income, after tax, will increase by 1,2 MSEK. Income per share will increase by SEK 0,08 and cash flow per share will improve by SEK 0,18.

Fogg's Hotel is a four star hotel with 146 rooms, two restaurants, extensive conference facilities, bar, and relaxation area. It is centrally located in the rapidly expanding Nacka/Sickla area of Stockholm, a fact that will benefit the hotel.
