Comment from Hans Wallenstam, CEO:
“The business is continuing to deliver good results, net operating income increased by 13 percent, income from property management increased by 14 percent and net asset value growth on a rolling full-year basis amounted to 12 percent. These are really excellent numbers, and this feels very reassuring!”

“Our cost-efficient new production, which provides the maximum quality for the lowest possible cost, together with our business model, where we can convert co-op apartments into rental apartments at a late stage, enables us to make the most of uncertain times like this. With an equity/assets ratio of 44 percent and a loan-to-value ratio, which is also 44 percent, we have a stable and flexible position, where we can take advantage of the market trend. This applies to production prices, property transactions and project acquisitions.”
