”SBB stands stronger than ever and focusses on a stronger rating and a lower loan-to-value ratio. The investments made by SBB in the past three years provide a good opportunity for SBB to now prioritize higher credit ratings clearly over acquisitions. SBB’s interest-coverage ratio was a multiple of 5.5 times at the end of the first quarter of 2022. The fact is that SBB could manage to keep the dividend and raise it with inflation even if the nominal interest rate rose to 10 percent. Inflation adjusted rental income and long-term fixed interest rates offers stable cash flow and dividends.”
