Ilija Batljan’s, CEO, summary of today’s Capital Market Day:

”The company’s targets and strategies are based on a focus on community service property, as our core business is to acquire and manage this type of assets. In addition to community service properties, we also focus on residential rental properties, where the ambition is to increase different types of collaborations in the future.”

”SBB is an active player in the transaction market and will continue to be so in the future to create conditions for growth. Our strength is based on finding and acting on opportunities in the market where our comprehensive and long experience give us a competitive advantage.”

”In addition to the company’s focus on transactions, SBB generates value by renovating and optimizing existing stock and focusing on sustainability. SBB’s goal is to renovate 600 apartments per annum and reduce energy consumption by 30 per cent.”

”We are actively working to strengthen our financial position and reduce our financial costs. Several measures have already been introduced and the company’s average interest rate has decreased to the current level of 2.49 percent (as of September 30, 2018). Before year end, SBB’s ambition is to have met the requirements for an investment grade rating. This would guarantee even lower funding costs in the future.”

”SBB also has the ambition to change its listing from First North Premier to Nasdaq Stockholm’s main list in 2019.”
