Kungsleden has in recent years had a pronounced ambition to create long-term financial stability, an attractive and geographically concentrated property portfolio and an efficient customer-focused organization. At the end of the third quarter, we received new fine confirmation that we are well on track when the rating agency Moody’s gave Kungsleden the credit rating Ba1 with “Positive Outlook”.
We are glad that the interest from investors was high in this first issue after achieving a public credit rating from Moody´s of Ba1 with Positive Outlook. Kungsleden aims to increase its market borrowing in order to further diversify its funding mix, increase the proportion of unsecured borrowing and extend the average capital term
”Today Kungsleden has a strong financial position, which is confirmed by the credit rating from Moody's. With rating and MTN program in place, we will increase the share of unsecured borrowing through the capital market. The goal is of course to obtain an Investment Grade rating, something that would give us an even larger base of credit investors and improved access to the capital market.
It is extremely gratifying that during the summer we have had a high rental activity and can show very strong new rental performance. We still have strong demand in our main markets of Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Västerås, which accounts for 80% of our property portfolio
Transformation complete – Kungsleden is well-equipped for the future

This is a way for us to continue to work with our principal approach – our cluster strategy. Amongst other things, the strategy contributes to effective property management, good local knowledge, and our ability to understand and meet the needs of our existing and prospective customers. Our clusters are unique and our two current websites differ depending on what is relevant for each cluster. We also cooperate together with other local actors to create inviting, safe and enriching locations, regardless of the time of day

I also look forward to contributing with my experience to the team in Västerås and being a part of Kungsleden's corporate culture with values such as professionalism, consideration and joy
We welcome Mölndals Däckservice as a tenant of ours
We are pleased that Kungsleden was able to provide us with suitable premises in a good location in Mölndal. We are a modern service station that offers everything from car services and repairs to the changing of tires and the storage of tires in our tire hotel. Accessibility and good facilities are prerequisites for our business
We are happy about our partnership with an ambitious tenant that wants to contribute of Västerås City. For Kungsleden, it is important to have a strong hotel operator that constantly strives to develop its concepts and business. This initiative is further proof that the area is sought after and that Kungsleden is an attractive development partner
The prolonged cooperation enables us to invest in a completely new and unique spa experience, complete the renovation of all 202 rooms and corridors, and build an entirely new hotel entrance.

”The Welandson family has been a shareholder of Kungsleden for several years over which we have gradually increased our ownership position. To us, this is a strategic and long-term holding. I am supportive of both Kungsleden´s new strategy and the transformation work that the board and senior management have completed over these years. Looking forward, we intend to keep our long-term ownership interest and we support the board´s proposal for a rights issue. As an expression of our support, we have committed to subscribe for the new shares pro-rata to our current shareholding and will underwrite the rights issue. We see this as a step towards further strengthening Kungsleden’s financial position as well as securing the Company´s strategy and future”.
”Today, Kungsleden is a high-quality property company which aims to deliver attractive total returns to our shareholders and build sustainable shareholder value. I am pleased that our main shareholder Gösta Welandson has expressed his support for the strategy developed by the board and management, and that he is willing to back the proposed rights issue. The rights issue will strengthen the Company´s financial position and enables reduction of financial leverage. Kungsleden will continue to refine its property portfolio and aims for financially disciplined growth. We have identified a large number of organic investment opportunities in the existing property portfolio, resulting not least from strong new lettings in 2016. Furthermore, we are continuously exploring selective and strategic add-on acquisitions in our clusters, of which the acquisition of Emporia Office in Hyllie in Malmö is a recent example”.
