Bent Oustad, CEO, comments on the quarter:

“There is good activity in the rental market in our core areas. We have few vacant premises. When rents are renegotiated, they end at a significantly higher price per BTA than before. With increasing construction costs and construction stops in some projects, we see that there are few new properties coming to the market. Thus, we believe the rental market will remain strong in the coming quarter.

The official opening of our recycling park in Nydalen took place in the quarter, where we have converted a car park into a 1000 square meter park in the middle of an urban office area. The collaboration with Asplan Viak, Agaia, Agency for Urban Environment in Oslo (Bymiljøetaten) and Statsbygg has provided good materials and useful knowledge for future projects. The development of the park is according to our sustainability strategy, and in line with our vision of creating engaging meeting places.

This is the eleventh consecutive quarter with growth in the rental income. NPRO’s LTV is at 41.9%, the duration of the loan portfolio is 3.9 years, the hedging ratio is 71%, and the weighted duration of the interest rate hedging is 5.9 years. So, we are well prepared to look at potential opportunities when they arise in today's market ".
