Selvaag Bolig ASA: FY 2017 and Q4 2017: Record profits and dividend

Record profits and dividend for Selvaag Bolig in 2017

 

Selvaag Bolig achieved operating revenues of NOK 3.23 billion and an EBITDA margin adjusted for financial expenses of 19.4 per cent in 2017.

 

Strong financial results and positive prospects mean that the company's board has proposed a dividend of NOK 1.80 per share for the second half of 2017. That brings the overall dividend for the year to NOK 3.00 per share.

 

"We had a very good year in 2017, with our best-ever IFRS profit and a record dividend. Our prospects are also good. At 31 December, we had 1 463 homes under construction with a combined sales value of NOK 6 994 million. Seventy-three per cent of these are already sold, and we see clear signs of improvement in the market," says CEO Baard Schumann.

 

"We're optimistic about market developments in our core areas over coming years. Interest rates are low, while population growth and centralisation create a big demand for new homes in areas where we have a strong position."
