Sveafastigheter: Sveafastigheter divests the Linnaeus University property development project in Kalmar

STOCKHOLM, 15 NOVEMBER 2016

Sveafastigheter Fund III ("Sveafastigheter") has divested the property
development project for the Linnaeus University (LNU) in Kalmar to a
group of Swedish investors (Länsförsäkringar Kalmar län, IngaBritt
och Arne Lundbergs forskningsstiftelse, P&E Persson AB and a pension
fund). The divestment was closed on

14 November 2016.
The property, with LNU as the main tenant, was acquired from
Akademiska Hus in May 2013. The leasable area at the time comprised
of approximately 12,000 sqm. LNU sought to gather all its premises to
one location, in order to facilitate internal meetings over the
faculties and to integrate the campus area with the surrounding
society. Sveafastigheter, LNU and Kalmar municipality initiated a
close cooperation resulting in a change of zoning already after one
year, and later a rental agreement for approximately 23,000 sqm. The
reconstruction and new development of premises suited for the
university constitute approximately 19,000 sqm.

Johan Tengelin, CEO at Sveafastigheter says:
"It has been an intense and exciting journey to together with the
Linnaues University and the Kalmar municipality create a new
destination for the region, which also happen to be one of the
largest ongoing property developments in Sweden. Besides the planning
of premises suited for research and education, the focus has been on
solutions for environmental and social responsibility, for the
building as well as the campus area."

In October 2015, the 20-year lease agreement was approved by the
Government and in January 2016 the Prime Minister of Sweden visited
the groundbreaking ceremony for the project. The property, which is
expected to be completed for the first tenant in 2018, will be
certified in accordance with the third party environmental system
Leed.

Johan Tengelin, CEO at Sveafastigheter continues:
"We are delighted to hand over the property and the development
project to a group of stable and long term owners. The property is
the final investment in the Sveafastigheter Fund III, in which we
have been able to deliver very good return for the investors. It
feels great to close the fund with a project where we also have been
able to create value for both the Linnaeus University and the
municipality of Kalmar."

P&E Fastighetspartner will continuosly handle the project development
with Skanska as contractor. P&E Fastighetspartner is
Sveafastigheter's local partner for property management and
development in the Kalmar region, and for this case also minority
owners of the property.

Kilpatrick Townsend and Cushman & Wakefield were advisors for the
seller during the process.
