Prospect for 2014
Sponda expects the economic occupancy rate of the Group’s properties in 2014 to remain largely unchanged from 2013. In the first quarter, however, the occupancy rate is expected to decline slightly. This estimate is based on the slow positive development of the Finnish economy as well as current information on expiring leases.
Comparable net operating income (excluding disposals) in 2014 is expected to be at the same level as in 2013. This view is based on the current estimate of the development of rent levels and vacancy rates for Sponda’s properties.
