Comment from Hans Wallenstam, CEO:
“2017 was an extremely strong year! Income from property management increased by SEK 73 million, 10 percent, as a result of our own work, including more efficient management and occupations in our cost-efficient new construction projects. We have a goal in our business plan 2018 to increase our net asset value by an average of at least 10 percent per year and in 2017 the increase was 13 percent!”

“There is uncertainty at present in the co-operative apartment market. Our strong finances combined with our cost-efficient new construction of rental apartments and flexible business model provides us with the basis to take advantage of the market trend.”
