  • Apartment sales was strong in both housing segments.
  • Business premises segment's result was burdened by progress in financial settlements of previously communicated and already completed three problematic projects, one of them being a EUR -7 million booking related to a final agreement on the Myllypuro Kampus project's financial closing. As part of the agreement, the client will pay an EUR 8 million withheld payment in April.
  • Balance sheet to strengthen further followed by the closing of the sale of the Nordic paving and mineral aggregates businesses. The transaction was completed on April 1 and hence, not reflected in the first-quarter figures. Gearing to lower by approximately 34 percentage points in the second quarter.
