“Wihlborgs is not unaffected by events in our operating environment, but nonetheless it is clear that our business model is resilient. We posted record-breaking revenue, operating surplus, income from property management and net lettings (SEK 119 million) in 2022. It is worth noting that net lettings were positive in all four regions for all four quarters. We have a strong balance sheet and good access to liquidity,” says Ulrika Hallengren, CEO of Wihlborgs.
“We increased rental income in the existing portfolio 13.7 percent compared with one year ago. In combination with our good net lettings, this indicates healthy underlying demand. Our organisation has a high level of activity and adaptability, and our focus on getting each little detail right adds up to a successful operation.
“Energy consumption per square metre in our properties decreased 7 percent during the year. This is the result of a dedicated joint effort with our tenants as well as better measurement methods. We will have more energy efficiency projects in the future and we are continuing to refine our sustainability goals for the coming years. We are also planning a substantial expansion in self-generated energy at our properties.”
