Significant events after the period
- No significant events after the quarter.
"We are proud to continue to deliver an increasing occupancy rate, which as of June 30 now amounts to 95 percent, as well as increasing rental income and net operating income by 18 and 25 percent, respectively, despite a deteriorating economy. Furthermore, renegotiations continue to increase rental values, a total of 21 percent for these renegotiated rental agreements, even though at the beginning of the year we already made extensive inflation-related rent increases.
We have also had strong progress in our project development activities, where we have completed five projects, totalling approximately 30,000 square meters, corresponding to an annual rent of approximately SEK 30 million. Ongoing and recently completed projects that have not yet started to generate income during the reporting period are expected – as they are leased, completed, and occupied – to add approximately SEK 80 million in net operating income.
We have continued to strengthen our financial flexibility. In addition to the tender offer for part of a hybrid bond of SEK 288 million in the first quarter, we have increased our liquidity, which in the form of cash and available credit lines amounts to approximately SEK 700 million. It provides us with flexibility, both to capitalize on attractive business opportunities and to take defensive and risk-reducing measures if necessary."
