Kojamo’s outlook (specified)
As given in the Interim Report January–September 2019
Kojamo estimates that in 2019, the Group’s total revenue will increase by 3–5 per cent year-on-year. In addition, the company estimates that the Group’s FFO for 2019 will amount to between EUR 137–145 million, excluding one-off items (previously EUR 134–144 million). Investments in new development and housing stock acquisitions are forecast to amount to approximately EUR 190–210 million, as no significant acquisitions of residential properties are expected to take place during the second half of the year (previously: amount to approximately, or exceed, EUR 300 million. Achieving the level of EUR 300 million would have required acquisitions of residential properties during the second half of the year). The change in the investment amount will not have a material impact on the result for 2019.
The outlook takes into account the effects of the completed housing divestments and acquisitions, the estimated occupancy rate and rises in rents, as well as the number of apartments to be completed. The outlook is based on the management’s assessment of total revenue, net rental income, administrative expenses, financial expenses, taxes to be paid and new development to be completed, as well as the management’s view on future developments in the operating environment.
Additionally, the outlook is based on strong demand sustained by migration, which will increase like-for-like rental income. The management can influence total revenue and FFO through the company’s business operations. In contrast, the management has no influence over market trends, the regulatory environment or the competitive landscape.
