Continued strong earnings despite challenging conditions
On a year-on-year basis, net operating income increased 6% and EBITDA increased 11% in the period from January to June 2023. This was despite high inflationary pressure and, following completed divestments, a slightly smaller property portfolio. As a result of rising interest expenses, income from property management per share declined 38%.
The value change in the property portfolio amounted to a decline of 0.5% for the quarter, primarily due to raised yield requirements, which were partially offset by ongoing efficiency enhancements and investments in the portfolio. As a result of the negative value trend during the period, growth declined 14% per share in NAV compared with the year-earlier period.
“It is gratifying to note that the cost-savings programme we initiated in autumn 2022 has resulted in an improvement in net operating income. We delivered stronger earnings where, after adjustment for a smaller property portfolio following completed divestments, net operating income increased a full 11% and EBITDA a full 17%. During the quarter, we worked actively with interest rate hedging to strengthen preparedness for continued high interest rates and sold a property in June as a further measure to counteract the effects of rising interest rates. We do not rule out further divestments if necessary. We retain our focus on improving the efficiency of operations and have identified substantial potential energy savings in our property portfolio,” says Per Nilsson, CEO of John Mattson.
