Rikshem’s year-end report 2018

Rikshem presented today its year-end report for 2018. Profit after tax amounted to MSEK 2,489 (2,430). Rental income increased 4.8 percent to MSEK 2,792 (2,665). Rental income for existing properties rose 3.9 percent (4.3).

“Earnings for 2018 were in line with the preceding year. The total return for the year surpassed that of the preceding year, and a stronger change in value, due to improved cash flows and a lower yield requirement, had a positive impact on earnings. However, our net operating income is not at the level we would ultimately like to see. As previously announced, Rikshem carried out a long-term investment in more active property management during the year. This investment resulted in increased costs, but will also eventually generate higher property values,” says Sophia Mattsson-Linnala, CEO of Rikshem.
