The company's steady growth continues. Our revenue grew by 49.4% , the operational result increased by 47.6% and net asset value per share grew by 41.0% compared to the corresponding period in 2016. The market value of our investment properties grew by 12.0% compared to the end of 2016 (78.0% compared to the corresponding period in 2016), and their market value was EUR 173.2 million at the end of March. The valuation of investment properties on 31 March 2017 is based on the assumptions and return requirements that were applied to the financial statements for 2016. The next comprehensive external valuation of the investment property portfolio will be done on 30 June 2017.



On 1 March 2017, the company was moved from the First North list to Nasdaq Helsinki. The company carried out a directed offering for institutional investors, comprising 4,500,000 new shares and bringing in EUR 31.5 million in new capital before expenses. As a result, the company's capital reserves are excellent and major investments can be made in the property portfolio. The issue introduced notable investors into the company's owner base from Sweden, Norway and the UK, in addition to Finland. The number of the company's shareholders has more than quadrupled in the past year, reaching over 5,500 on 31 March 2017.


The average lease agreement maturity of completed and unfinished properties was 14.1 years on 31 March 2017, and the total value of the lease agreements (= future lease cash flow with no index increases) was EUR 233.9 million. Since March 31st, the company has signed agreements for ten new development projects. The combined market value of these projects is approximately EUR 23 million. Due to the new development projects, the company's financial estimates for 2017 will be adjusted with regard to the market value of the investment properties.
