  • The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that no dividend (SEK 4,000 million) be distributed.

“We are reporting stable results for the underlying operations,” says Johanna Skogestig, CEO. “The uncertain market conditions have resulted in a decline in property values during the second half of the year. At the same time, we have managed to maintain a high letting rate and to bring several large projects into property management during the year, which has positively impacted cash flow. This, combined with the fact that we have properties in in-demand locations, strong finances and dedicated employees, means that we are well-positioned even in a more challenging market.”
