Platzer’s CEO, P-G Persson, said

-          The operating surplus increased by 9% in the first half and income from property management rose to SEK 297 million, which corresponded to an increase of 18% on the same period in the previous year. This means that in the second quarter of 2019, we achieved new heights for a single quarter both in terms of operating surplus and income from property management. 

-          Platzer’s property assets grew by nearly SEK 1.2 billion in the first six months of the year as a result of investments and increases in value. Demand for our projects remains strong in the stable property and rental market in Gothenburg.

-          In the second quarter, we concluded large leases for Gårda Vesta, Gullbergsvass, Skeppsbron and Södra Änggården. The leases will generate increases in value both in the short and long term and will boost future cash flow. Our rental income from leases that have been signed but are not included in earning capacity is at a record high and stood at nearly SEK 170 million at the end of June 2019.
