Hufvudstaden (STO:HUFVA) (STO:HUFVC)

· Profit after tax for the period was SEK 1,221 million (789), equivalent to SEK 5.92 per share (3.83). The increase is due to higher unrealized changes in value of the property holdings.

· Gross profit from property management decreased by 3 per cent and amounted to SEK 553 million (572), which can be attributed largely to the increased cost of vacant space and the cost of development projects in the retail sector.
