Selvaag Bolig ASA: Q3 2017: Land purchase in Oslo and good outlook for results

Selvaag Bolig sold homes with a sales value of NOK 2 867 million in the first nine months of 2017.

 

"The market is substantially quieter than in earlier periods, but our sales have nevertheless been good. We have good homes in the right locations, and great faith in continued good progress. Among other moves, we have therefore entered into an agreement to buy sites associated with the Bjerke Travbane race track, one of the best remaining development plots in Oslo. This acquisition could provide more than 1 500 homes, says CEO Baard Schumann

 

Selvaag Bolig had operating revenues of NOK 1.97 billion in the first nine months, and a margin of 19.7 per cent.

 

"We deliver good results and will be continuing to do so," says Schumann. "As expected, few deliveries were made during the third quarter viewed in isolation but we are due to complete 336 homes in the next quarter. We're due to complete 850 homes in 2018, and 86 per cent of these are already sold. We can therefore already say that we'll be delivering a good 2018."

 

Selvaag Bolig has a total of 1 582 homes with a sales value of NOK 7 047 million under construction, and 78 per cent of these are already sold.

 

Third quarter 2017 (2016 figures in brackets)

  • 1 582 homes net under construction (1 464) with a combined sales value of NOK 7 047 million (NOK 5 775)
  • 78 per cent of homes under construction (90 per cent) sold at 30 September
  • 99 per cent of homes due for completion in 2017 sold, and 86 per cent of those for completion in 2018

* Net sales include Selvaag Bolig's share of joint venture projects. Gross sales include all homes in joint venture projects.

** Pursuant to the IFRS, all profit is recognised when the homes are delivered to the buyer. Profit pursuant to the IFRS accordingly derives primarily from homes which began to be built roughly two years ago.

*** The accounts pursuant to Norwegian generally accepted accounting principles (NGAAP) utilise the percentage of completion method. This means that profits are recognised on the basis of construction progress and sales in the projects. That presents ongoing value creation in the company.
