  • The value of the property portfolio amounted to SEK 116.8bn (73.0).
  • Long-term net asset value (EPRA NRV) was SEK 43,992m (25,246), corresponding to SEK 31.02 (19.91) per share.

  • Net income after tax for the period amounted to SEK 6,558m (1,233), corresponding to earnings per series A and B ordinary share of SEK 4.05 (0.86) before dilution.


For the full year 2021, earnings per ordinary share A and B are estimated to amount to SEK 7.80 which is an increase from the forecast of SEK 5.15 that was provided in the first quarter.


SBB’s Board of Directors has decided to investigate the possibility of monthly dividends of the ordinary A and B shares from the next Annual General Meeting. The inquiry's conclusion together with the Board's assessment of the scope for dividend from next year will be presented in connection with a capital markets day which is planned to take place during autumn 2021.

SBB’s 12-month rolling earnings capacity rose by 30 percent compared with the second quarter of 2020 and amounted to SEK 3.79 per series A and B share. Profit after tax was SEK 9.3bn, which together with an increased earnings capacity leads to a higher forecast for a profit of SEK 7.80 per series A and B ordinary share for the full year 2021. We have great potential for value creation. Our valuation yield is 4.34 percent in a market where the yield requirement for our low-risk assets is more often below 3 percent and where our average interest rate is 1.13 percent. Our value-adding strategies continue to out-perform at all levels. By itself, the profit from our two value-adding strategies Development of building rights & new production, and Investments in existing portfolio ended up at SEK 1.7bn for the first half of 2021. Our scenario analysis also shows that we have potential for tens of billions of SEK in added value from our building rights portfolio.
