COMMENTS FROM THE CEO

In April this year, when we decided to enter the Finnish market, we set a target for Nyfosa to achieve SEK 7 billion within five years. At the end of the third quarter we have reached just over SEK 2.5 billion. It is positive that we have been able to make acquisitions so quickly, particularly with good properties in regional cities. This is only the beginning, we are now looking ahead to build up a strong and diversified cash flow portfolio in Finland. We see many opportunities for expanding in these cities and in other growing Finnish towns. We are currently working on a number of possible business deals that we hope to complete during the year.

We are continuing to see a positive trend in property management with stable demand for premises and we could report positive net leasing again this quarter. Work on enhancing the energy efficiency of the property portfolio is continuing with a clear focus – reducing carbon emissions while raising profitability through lower energy consumption. We analyze every unique property to identify the right measures.

I am pleased with our performance in the quarter and the strong key figures that we can report. We increased property value to almost SEK 35 billion, profit from property management and cash flow per share increased and we have a stable financial position. We have noted increasing concern about inflation and interest rates, which we are closely monitoring, but we believe that the basic conditions of the property market remain stable, which creates a basis for further growth.
