- “The positive trend of rising rental income, improved management result and continued growth in value continued during the second quarter. The sale of Pelaren 1 at Globen Arena showed that the yield requirements continued to decline, which also had a positive effect on the valuation of several of our properties”, commented Christian Hermelin, CEO

Market outlook
- ”The market outlook has not changed since the last quarter. Stockholm is strong and has a long-term growth forecast, which provides good conditions for Fabege's continued growth. Fabege is well-positioned and can offer office space in attractive, modern and sustainable districts in Greater Stockholm - both on the north and south side. The interest rate change we have seen in the last quarter has not yet had an impact on our values ​​and I expect we will see a continued downward pressure on the yield requirements in the coming quarters” says Christian Hermelin, CEO.
