Interim Report January – June 2022: Uniquely positioned for the future

Catena continued to deliver a stronger performance, driven by rent increases, acquisitions and new projects. Along with a strong financial position and satisfactory safety margins in the projects, this provides flexibility and unique future opportunities.

Catena’s CEO Jörgen Eriksson comments on the interim report:

- Catena is in a strong position with a modern portfolio in attractive locations along with a land bank which provides unique conditions for future growth. Since in many cases we acquire land at an early stage and then take a long-term approach through the zoning plan process, we can ensure an attractive yield on the completion of new facilities.

- I am delighted that we signed a contract during the quarter with the leading Nordic electronics retailer, Elgiganten, for an 86,600 m² logistics facility in Jönköping. This project is one of the largest in Catena's history. Together with Elgiganten, we have set high sustainability goals. In addition to BREEAM Excellent certification, there is the potential for a larger solar power installation on the roof and new initiatives in biodiversity. We also hope that the facility will become one of Sweden’s largest WELL-certificated logistics facilities.

At 10.00 CEST today, the webcast will commence for the interim report for January-June 2022.
