Castellum's Interim Report January-September 2018: A record strong quarter - 13% growth in income from property management

Income for the period January-September 2018 amounted to MSEK 4,141 (MSEK 3,866 corresponding period previous year). Income from property management amounted to MSEK 2,219 (1,956), corresponding to SEK 8.12 (7.16) per share, an increase of 13%. Changes in value on properties amounted to MSEK 3,150 (2,069) and on derivatives to MSEK 202 (204). Net income after tax for the period amounted to MSEK 5,051 (3,424), corresponding to SEK 18.49 (12.53) per share. EPRA NAV amounted to SEK 168 (142) per share, an increase of 18%. Net investments amounted to MSEK 3,009 (4,560) of which MSEK 1,333 (3,452) were acquisitions, MSEK 2,123 (1,980) new developments, extensions and redevelopments and MSEK 447 (872) sales. Property value amounted to SEK 87.5 billion by the end of the period. Net lease for the period amounted to MSEK 157 (251).

For Castellum, this resulted in a new record quarter - income from property management rose 13%. The strong earnings after the third quarter mean that I am now even more convinced that in 2018, Castellum will be able to meet its overall target: an increase in income from property management (and thus the dividend) of 10%,” says CEO Henrik Saxborn.

New profitable development opportunities arise through continued high demand for modern, sustainable office spaces. Over the last few years, Castellum has taken a leading role in the expansion of Nyhamnen in central Malmö by constructing a new Swedish National Courts Administration and a new Nordic head office for E.ON. The investment totals SEK 2.3 billion and is one of the largest in the company’s history. This further reinforces Castellum’s position as a community-builder in the Öresund region,” concludes Saxborn.
