Kungsleden continues to concentrate its property holdings to prioritised growth markets and divests 16 properties for SEK 427 million, resulting in a positive income effect of around SEK 35 million. The divestments involve Kungsleden leaving the municipalities of Kumla, Filipstad, Kungsör, Sandviken, Arboga, Piteå and Sigtuna.

Kungsleden continues to focus its property holdings to prioritised growth markets and concentrates its geographical presence to 28 from 34 municipalities outside the metropolitan areas.
