Well positioned to take advantage of future business opportunities

- Both the property and rental markets have remained very strong. Given the prevailing market conditions and Fabege’s attractive property and project portfolio, the prerequisites are favourable for strong earnings in 2016. More completed projects will increase rental volumes which, combined with continued operational efficiency and low interest expense, is expected to generate better profit from property management.
