STRENGTHENED CAPITAL BASE AND MORE ACQUISITIONS

Fastator completed a number of significant acquisitions in the third quarter of the year. We also succeeded in strengthening our capital base with a bond issue of MSEK 250. Meanwhile, our existing holding performed favourably and we can happily confirm that our net asset value also rose MSEK 12 during the quarter.

At the beginning of the quarter, Fastator acquired a company focused on student and temporary housing in a number of fast-growing university cities in south-western Sweden. We also conducted an acquisition of the management company Nordic PM, mainly in order to offer all companies in the Fastator Group an affordable technical and financial management service going forward. Both of these acquisitions mean that we are now expanding the portfolio into new sectors and geographical sub-areas with growth potential in the property market.

Due to the bond issue in September, we are now well-positioned to further increase the pace of our future acquisitions. In the coming period, we aim to continue strengthening our portfolio of holdings.
