Interim Report January–September 2023

John Mattson is strengthening the company for the future

The surplus ratio for the January to September 2023 period amounted to 72%, a record high for the company. Net operating income increased 7% and, year-on-year, EBITDA increased 11%. This was despite a smaller property portfolio following completed sales as well as continued high inflation and non-recurring costs during the second quarter. As a result of rising market interest rates during the period, income from property management declined 28% per share compared with the year-earlier period.

The change in value was a decrease of 2.5% due to continued rising yield requirements. The continued negative value trend impacted NAV per share, which decreased 16% compared with the year-earlier period.

“Since spring 2022 we have taken decisive and proactive measures to adapt the company to new macroeconomic conditions. Our streamlining and cost-savings programme had the desired effect and we reported a record high surplus ratio of 72% for the company for the period. At the same time, customer and employee satisfaction both increased. With the measures we have taken in a short span of time and the upcoming rights issue, John Mattson is well-equipped for the future and has the prerequisites for investing in long-term value creation,” says Per Nilsson, CEO of John Mattson.
