Strong increase in earnings for Klövern

2004-08-20

“Targeted work in the local market has produced improvements in earnings in particular in the geographical units Borås, Karlstad, Linköping and Norrköping, says Klövern’s CEO Gustaf Hermelin. “We are continuing our active acquisition, letting and sales work and are convinced that this will contribute to Klövern showing a positive earnings trend in the future as well.”
 
Klövern’s expansion has continued by the establishment of two new geographical units in Borås and Västerås during the year. Up until the beginning of August, Klövern has acquired properties for more than SEK 1.2 billion. At the same time, properties at non-prioritised locations and a number of developed properties have been sold with a gain of SEK 26 million.
