Purchaser is state-owned Specialfastigheter. Change of possession will

Following publication of the Norrporten acquisition - Sweden's
second-largest real estate deal - in April of this year, Castellum
announced that divestments totalling at least SEK 4 billion would be
made, as part of transaction financing. Castellum is now in position
to announce a property-sales volume which is even higher: Including
today's property divestment in Luleå, the company has now sold
properties worth a total SEK 6.8 billion since the spring.

Meanwhile, the company continues to invest, providing Castellum
customers with newer, more efficient and more effective operating
premises. At the moment, Castellum is running no fewer than 19 major
new construction, extension, or reconstruction projects, worth a
total of SEK 2.1 billion.

"I'm pleased that we've managed to carry out the divestments we
announced when we bought Norrporten", says Henrik Saxborn, Castellum
CEO. "Our ambition level is unchanged: to invest a net 5% of the net
worth of our property portfolio every year - that is, an amount
approaching SEK 10 billion over a three-year period".
