From Andreas Morfiadakis' CEO comment:

"The year got off to a positive start for KlaraBo after a large portion of the annual rent negotiations were completed on 1 January. Income from property management rose 35 per cent as a result of rent increases and ongoing upgrades of our homes according to our proven business concept. Rent negotiations that were not concluded by the new year have now essentially been concluded and will be introduced during the second quarter, resulting in an average 5.3 per cent rent increase for our housing units for 2024. Financial expenses were on a par with the first quarter of last year thanks to our high share of hedged bank loans, 80 per cent, as well as more stable interest rates in the market.

Active work to ensure long-term value creation

We will continue to grow our property management portfolio both through acquisitions and by expanding through new construction over time. While KlaraBo is primarily to be a growth company, our base is - and will continue to be - our value-creating business model that continuously leads to a higher value for our property portfolio and growth in cash flow per share over time. The more favourable market situation we have seen in the past six months could also lead to opportunities for both supplementary acquisitions in existing locations and establishments in new locations. This depends on us finding the right object.

With that said, we are mindful to keep a sound risk profile and continuously create financial stability over time. One way we do this is through our share buyback programme, which gives us increased opportunities to adapt the company's capital structure from time to time. Another is our high share of hedged loans, which exclusively include bank loans.

I am convinced that our business model and strategy with organic growth as well as acquisitions, in combination with secure financing, gives us the right preconditions for sustainable and profitable growth and long-term shareholder value. We will be well equipped and prepared when the market turns and attractive business opportunities arise."
