Castellum's income from property management improved by 9%

  • Rental income for the period January - September amounted to SEKm

Income from property management for the period, i.e. net income
excluding changes in value and tax, amounted to SEKm 610 (559),
equivalent to SEK 14.88 (13.63) per share. The improvement is 9% and
has been achieved chiefly through a larger real estate portfolio and
lower interest rate levels.

During the period 25 properties (23) were sold for a total of SEKm
468 (450), which exceeded fair value by SEKm 71 (91) and the book
value according to earlier accounting principles by SEKm 216 (184).
During the period investments totalling SEKm 911 (1,086) were made,
of which SEKm 527 (828) were acquisitions and SEKm 384 (258)
investments in existing properties.

"Besides the continued growth in income, I'm most delighted about the
improved leasing situation. Both the total leasing in Castellum, as
well as terminations and bankruptcies, confirms that the rental
market has improved" comments Castellum's CEO, Lars-Erik Jansson.

A nomination committee has been appointed in accordance to the
decision made by the Annual General Meeting. The nomination committee
is formed by: Lars Öhrstedt, AFA Sjukförsäkrings AB, Laszlo
Szombatfalvy, Pernilla Klein, Tredje AP-fonden and the Chairman of
the Board Jan Kvarnström.
