End-year report 2017

Increased rental income and record high net letting

  • Rental income increased to SEK 2,280m (2,105). In an identical portfolio, income rose by approximately 9,5 per cent.
  • Net operating income increased with 11.5 per cent to SEK 1,680m (1,507)
  • The surplus ratio was 74 per cent (72).
  • Profit from property management rose to SEK 992m (471).
  • Realised and unrealised changes in value amounted to SEK 6,095m (8,105)
  • Net lettings during the year totalled SEK 244m (127).
  • After-tax profit for the year amounted to SEK 5,632m (7,107), corresponding to SEK 34.05 per share (42.97).
  • The Board proposes a dividend of SEK 4.50 per share (4.00).

”Earnings from property management increased, but lower unrealised changes in value in the property portfolio meant that profit before tax fell in comparison with 2016 when declining yield requirements contributed to very high value changes in the property portfolio. The results of the year, however, are characterized on several points. Net lettings of SEK 244m and the surplus ratio of 74 per cent are the highest in our history. Return on projects landed at high 72 per cent and we initiated several new major projects, which means that value growth will continue in coming years", commented Christian Hermelin, CEO

Market outlook
”We have now entered 2018 and market conditions remain consistently good, and as long as the economy remains healthy, which it is expected to in 2018, I look forward to another strong year with persistently high net lettings, rising revenue and falling average interest rates, as well as the odd exciting transaction. Our high ambitions and constant efforts to improve mean Fabege is stronger than ever”, says Christian Hermelin, CEO
