Interim report Jan-Mar 2024: Record in new leases

· Rental income increased 7 percent to SEK 1,040 million (971). · Operating surplus increased 8 percent to SEK 718 million (667). · Income from property management amounted to SEK 424 million (457). · Profit for the period amounted to SEK 348 million (255), corresponding to earnings per share of SEK 1.13 (0.83).

Ulrika Hallengren, CEO of Wihlborgs, comments on the first quarter:

“High activity in the lettings market continued through the first quarter with a new letting record with newly signed contracts totalling SEK 177 million. Net lettings amounted to SEK 29 million, which means 36 quarters in a row with positive net lettings. Demand remains strong for high-quality premises in good locations that are conducive for enjoyment, efficiency and innovation."

“Even in a period dominated by challenges, we have managed to advance our positions and we continue to invest in new, exciting projects. As a result, when external factors such as the economy and interest-rate situations improve, we will find ourselves well-placed with favourable conditions to accelerate our growth."

“During the quarter, our focus remained on enhancing the efficiency of our portfolio, and this is where our reversible heat pump innovation has led to energy savings in several properties of around 30 percent. Even our intensified work to increase the proportion of approved suppliers in accordance with our sustainability requirements has yielded favourable results, increasing from 72 to 84 percent quarter-on-quarter. In Swedish operations, 99 percent of suppliers meet these requirements.”
