Klövern year-end report 2008

2009-02-13

Strong income from property management
Klövern is reporting a strong result in operating activities. Income from property management amounted to + SEK 355 million in 2008. Income increased during the year. The income statement is also affected by items which do not affect the cash flow such as negative changes in value of both properties and derivatives.

Klövern’s CEO Gustaf Hermelin is optimistic about the future and is raising the forecast. The result for 2009 is expected to exceed 2008’s result by a broad margin.

“Low interest rates, a high occupancy rate and potential in vacant spaces means that the conditions are good for an improvement in the result in 2009”, says Klövern’s CEO Gustaf Hermelin.
