Interim-report January-June 2020

During the second quarter, the effects of Covid-19 on our earnings became visible through rent rebates and decreased property values. However, our projects progressed as planned, without any larger disruptions. Net letting during the first half of 2020 amounted to SEK 20m. The renegotiations decreased in volume due to the pandemic but contributed positively to the rental value. During the quarter, two properties were acquired.
 

  • Rental income decreased to SEK 1,409m (1,449). The decrease was mainly due to property sales and SEK 18m in granted discounts as a result of the covid-19 pandemic. In an identical portfolio, income rose by approximately 4 per cent (19).
  • Net operating income decreased  to SEK 1,046m (1,063). In an identical portfolio, net operating income rose by approximately 6 per cent (19).
  • The surplus ratio was 74 per cent (73).
  • Profit from property management decreased SEK 728m (741).
  • Realised and unrealised changes in value amounted to SEK 1,550m (3,122)
  • After-tax profit for the period amounted to SEK 1,559m (2,790), corresponding to SEK 4.73 per share (8.44).
  • Net lettings during the period totalled SEK 20m (-87).
  • The equity / assets ratio was 55 percent (52) and the loan-to-value ratio was 32 percent (36).

Of course, the market will look different after the pandemic, but today it is too early to draw any conclusions about customers' changing behaviors. We believe the office will continue to play an important role in creating strong brands, a sense of community and loyalty among employees; as a place for meetings and creativity and and its importance for business development, even if we expect remote working to continue after the pandemic. We are confident that together with our customers, we will develop our offering to respond to the demands of tomorrow at a modern, flexible workplace that can meet the requirements of any situation”, comment CEO Stefan Dahlbo.
