”SBB's stable cash flows are only marginally affected by the business cycle and external factors. We deliver strong earnings capacity from the property management and continue to see great opportunities to deliver profit from three value-creating areas - renovations/investments in our properties, development of building rights and transactions. We deliver strong profit before tax amounted to SEK 933m, and we deliver the strong 20% yearly increase in NAV.

As previously communicated, we are continuing work to prepare SBB for a listing on Nasdaq Stockholm’s Main List. SBB is on a strong growth path, having announced ten acquisitions with a total value of SEK8.9bn in 2019. As we continue to see opportunities to grow, we may also evaluate the possibility of raising capital in connection with the listing on the Main List in order to further strengthen our capacity to fund growth in compliance with our recently achieved investment grade credit rating.
