”We have turned five years old. And around the same time, we became the Nordic region’s second-largest listed property company with properties valued at approximately SEK 105bn on the balance sheet. Size matters and our employees and infrastructure form a unique investment platform that delivers strong results at all levels. Adjusted for non-recurring costs for repayment of expensive loans and deductions for earnings attributable to preference shares, series D shares, hybrid bonds and minority interests, profit for the period amounted to SEK 1.91 per series A and B ordinary share. Adjusted for non-recurring costs, profit from property management increased by 41 percent in comparison with the first quarter of 2020 to SEK 843m (596). Our value-add-strategies continue to out-deliver. Profit from building rights development and property production for the first quarter of 2021 amounted to SEK 507m, compared with the target of SEK 1.0-1.4bn on an annual basis. At the end of the first quarter, SBB’s portfolio of building rights amounted to approximately 2,919,000 m2 GFA, corresponding to approximately 42,000 apartments, which, together with a new production portfolio of 6,185 apartments, makes SBB the Nordic region’s leading property developers. Profit from investments in the existing portfolio in the first quarter of 2021 amounted to SEK 155m, compared with the target of SEK 600m on an annual basis. The focus on nursing homes, LSS and rent regulated residentials is intensifying and we are looking towards Europe. By the end of the first quarter of 2021, our 12-month rolling revenues from elderly care homes and LSS housing had increased from SEK 800m last year to SEK 1,084m compared to the target of achieving SEK 1.6bn by 2025.
