"We have achieved a good profit, despite the first quarter often being the weakest of the year, involving high season-related expenses and fewer new lettings following the great activity at the turn of the year," the CEO Erik Paulsson comments. "Our main markets are displaying a good balance, and the total degree of vacancy is unchanged in comparison with the previous quarter," Erik Paulsson continues. "The property stock acquired from Posten [Swedish Post Office] is developing well, and integration with the remaining stock is progressing according to plan. We have hitherto sold 5 Posten properties in non-prioritised locations, and as things stand I cannot see any market- related obstacles to continued sales, with the aim of the stock in non- prioritised locations being sold by the end of 2003."
