Strong growth in property management earnings

July 7, 2014

• Rental incomes increased to SEK 261 million (231)

• Income from property management improved by 25 % to SEK 105 million

• Net profits for the period amounted to SEK 85 million (145)

• Property value increased to SEK 7,195 million (6,913)

• Equity per share amounted to SEK 28.75 (28.47)

• Earnings per share amounted to SEK 0.88 kr (2.06)

“The business is growing with healthy profitability," says Platzer's CEO, P-G Persson. "We increased earnings from property management by 25% by adding new properties and improving the performance of existing properties. Our project and property development work is continuing to unlock value in the portfolio. High levels of activity in the transaction market are pushing down market yields. All in all, this meant a 100% improvement in property-related earnings in the first half of 2014."

"A strong property market in the Gothenburg region is benefitting us as a local player, and I see considerable potential to grow further through project and property management and strategic acquisitions."
