-          Hemsö´s stable growth during the year continued into the fourth quarter. For the full-year, both rental income and profit from property management rose 10 per cent to SEK 2,607 million and SEK 1,443 million, respectively, and profit after tax for the period rose 19 per cent to SEK 3,092 million, driven by changes in fair value. The rental duration increased to 9.7 years due to several acquisitions and completed development projects with long-term lease agreements, and extensions of existing major lease agreements. At the same time, the quality of the property portfolio improved and a stronger capital structure was achieved, which reduced refinancing risk, says Nils Styf.
