Adjusted income-tax returns result in higher tax loss carry-forwards

Kungsleden AB (publ) has reviewed its income-tax returns for previous years with a focus on how derivatives used for hedging interest rate risk and equity swaps have affected taxable income. The review has shown that, especially for the income years 2009-2011, Kungsleden has not fully utilized its deduction possibilities and some tax adjustments have not been correct. Therefore, Kungsleden has today sent revised income-tax returns to the Swedish Tax Agency claiming increased deductions compared to the previously filed income-tax returns. The revised income-tax returns result in higher tax loss carry-forwards, which in turn enables Kungsleden to book a tax revenue in the form of a deferred tax asset of 140 MSEK in the fourth quarter of 2015. A ruling by the Swedish Tax Agency on the revised tax returns is expected in the first half of 2016.
