Rikshem’s half-year report for January-June 2018: Positive change in value and higher rental income

Rental income increased to MSEK 1,374 (1,335). Rental income for existing properties rose 4.5 percent (4.1). Profit after tax amounted to MSEK 1,144 (1,464).

“We have signed several agreements to acquire properties for public use and our rent increases for the year are beginning to take effect. The value of the properties continued to improve and rental income continued to increase. At the same time, our earnings were impacted by the harsh winter weather and higher financial items as a result of our increased debt duration and interest-rate duration. We also maintained our long-term focus on management,” says Sophia Mattsson-Linnala, CEO of Rikshem.
