Interim report January-September 2009

Statement by the CEO
 
Stable operations with positive signals
 
“Sweden and the world has experienced one year of financial crisis by now. The situation has gradually improved though, especially after the summer. Klövern’s day-to-day activities rest on stable foundations with profit from property management and a cash flow that is better than ever. During the spring, parts of SonyEricsson in Kista were vacated and we lost one percentage point in the economic occupancy rate. During the beginning of the autumn, we have noticed a clear increase in demand at our locations. Rental levels remain stable and we are optimistic regarding the future.

Ericsson has decided to concentrate its operations in Kista, which is positive for the area in general and for us as property owners in particular. This decision, together with the completion of the exhibition and events centre Kistamässan and first sod being cut for the Victoria Tower hotel, confirms Kista’s position as one of Europe’s leading ICT areas”, says Klövern’s CEO Gustaf Hermelin.
