Interim-report January-March 2019

Increased rental income and a strong result from property management

  • Rental income increased to SEK 718m (546). In an identical portfolio, income rose by approximately 19 per cent.
  • Net operating income increased to SEK 509m (439). In an identical portfolio, net operating income rose by approximately 19 per cent.
  • The surplus ratio was 71 per cent (72).
  • Profit from property management increased with 33 per cent to SEK 366m (274).
  • Realised and unrealised changes in value amounted to SEK 1,324m (2,783)
  • Net lettings during the period totalled SEK -107m (9) after the Swedish Tax Agency terminated its agreement for the property Nöten 4.
  • After-tax profit for the period amounted to SEK 1,148m (2,539), corresponding to SEK 3.47 per share (7.86).

-“The year began with rising rental income, improved profit from property management and continued value growth, primarily via projects and higher rent levels. I see no signs of a slowdown at this time. The rental market in Stockholm is still characterized by low vacancies and increasing rents. The negative net lettings during the period were the result of the decision by the Swedish Tax Agency to move to new premises, commented Christian Hermelin, CEO

Market outlook

-” Fabege has every opportunity to continue its successful value-creating development. Stockholm is strong and growing, which provides excellent prospects for Fabege’s continued growth. Fabege is well-positioned and can offer office space in attractive, modern and sustainable districts in Greater Stockholm - both north and south. Our value-generating projects continue to contribute to Fabege’s total performance. We are intensively working on completing more scheduled development rights to offer to office customers on the Stockholm market,” says Christian Hermelin, CEO.
