“As a step towards focusing our property portfolio and further concentrate towards Helsingborg, the divestment of these properties is well inline with our strategy, says Cassandra Jertshagen, CEO Jefast.”

“Furthermore, with a long history as the largest Private property owner in Höganäs, we believe it is very valuable and strategical to further strengthen the market with an additional large and well known property owner as SBB. This is also an indication of a lucrative property market in Höganäs, which is beneficial for the remainder of our Höganäs property portfolio, says Cassandra.”

The 10 properties are located in Höganäs with a total lettable area of approximately 19 000 m2 with an annual rental value of 22 MSEK. The cash flow of the group will be affected accordingly.
