Statement by the CEO
Focus on letting
“The state of the economy continues to present a challenge to many businesses. During the second quarter of the year, Klövern has continued to focus on letting and consolidation. We have also reinforced our ownership of Tribona and concentrated the property portfolio.
During the quarter, a further 9.3 per cent of the shares of Tribona were acquired, resulting in our owning 27.6 per cent of the company. Because of this, we will in future report the holding as an associated company. We take a positive view of Tribona’s development and the type of logistics that the company is engaged in. Klövern now also has a seat on the board of the company.
Our aim is to continue to concentrate our portfolio, which has led us to sell five properties that do not fit into our portfolio so well. We have reinforced our presence in the Gothenburg region by acquiring Lindex’s central warehouse and sales office at Partille. Other examples of acquisitions are an office property in the expansive area of Hyllie in Malmö and three modern logistics properties at Jordbro Business Park in the Stockholm region, all latter let on long leases to Systembolaget and Lagena.
It has once again then been a quarter of concentration and consolidation. One more quarter when we have developed our profit, capital and business.”
