Significant events after the end of the period

• At the beginning of July, SBB signed an agreement for the acquisition of a larger portfolio of preschools from the Norwegian Laeringsverkstedet, for an agreed property value of NOK 4,250m. The portfolio consists of 138 properties with approximately 114,000 sq.m. of building area and 601,000 sq.m. of land. Laeringsverkstedet has signed 35-year triple-net agreements for the entire portfolio with a rent of NOK 251.4m.

• After the end of the quarter, SBB has carried out an external valuation of lease agreements that have been signed after the end of the quarter and contracts that will be entered until 30 June 2021. These lease agreements have an average duration of 36 years and a fully indexed operating net income of SEK 325m. The outcome of the valuation shows an extra value that exceeds the acquisition value / investments by SEK 2,242m (fair value gain).

Profit before tax amounted to SEK 2,447m and profit after tax was SEK 2,595m. Adjusted for non-recurring costs and deductions for earnings attributable to preference shares, D shares and hybrid bonds, the result for the period was SEK 2.08 per ordinary share A and B. Our most important asset, our employees have successfully integrated Hemfosa and our margin in terms of surplus ratio was for the first half of 2020 approximately seven percentage points higher (adjusted for one off costs) than the corresponding last year. Net operating income in a comparable portfolio (like for like) increased by seven percent.
