Comment from Hans Wallenstam, CEO:
“It has been an active quarter for Wallenstam. Apart from agreeing on the divestment of our cooperative apartment project Kv. New York comprising 50 apartments that are under construction, we have managed to acquire land for future housing production in attractive locations.”

“Net operating income increased by just over 3 percent to SEK 781 million (756), even though we gave rent discounts of about SEK 30 million to our tenants that are operating in the most exposed sectors. Income from property management during the first half of 2020 amounted to SEK 549 million (547), which was slightly more than the year-earlier period. Now we all have to wait and see regarding future developments. However, I can confirm that Wallenstam has a stable financial position, properties in attractive locations and a well-functioning business, which is creating value. Thanks to this strong basis, we also have the ability to capture the opportunities for the future that arise along the way!”
