Comment from Hans Wallenstam, CEO:
"We have a secure base in our balance sheet where we have an equity/assets ratio of 47 percent and a loan-to-value ratio of 45 percent. Our operations are working well with increasing net operating income and income from property management which is on a par with the previous year despite increased financing costs and divestments. An uncertain and cautious property market and higher interest expenses have resulted in increased yield requirements for 2022 on average of 0.4 percentage points to 3.4 percent on our residential properties and of 0.4 percentage points to 4.8 percent on our commercial properties."
"Wallenstam has created a unique position to be able to capitalize on possible opportunities, which can arise in more uncertain times, while the company is neither unaffected by external events nor without challenges around the corner."
