  • Net result for the period was SEK -396 million (-499), equivalent to SEK -1.96 per share (-2.47). The negative result can be attributed to negative unrealised changes in the value of the property holdings.

  • The equity ratio was 58 per cent (60), the net loan-to-value ratio was 22 per cent (20) and the interest coverage ratio was 4.0 (6.2).

Comments from Hufvudstaden’s President, Anders Nygren.

The first quarter of the year was affected by the weak economy. The vacancy rate increased slightly and the letting processes are taking longer, but gratifyingly, a number of new leases were signed during the period. For example, the office spaces in the Fyran property in Nordstan and NK in Gothenburg are now fully leased. In our project Johanna in Gothenburg, leases have been signed with strong service concepts that will support the increasing interest we are now seeing for office space in the block.

The retail sector remains challenging. However, we experience that retailers and brands are becoming more optimistic about the future. The strongest interest in retail premises has been in Bibliotekstan in Stockholm, where several new leases were signed, and vacancy rates remain low.”
