CITYCON OYJ Investor News 16 May 2017 at 8.30 hrs EET
Citycon hosts a Capital Markets Day for investors, analysts and media today, Tuesday, 16 May at Iso Omena in Espoo, Finland. The purpose of the day is to provide an update on Citycon’s positioning, strategy execution and key focus areas going forward. Citycon’s outlook for 2017 remains unchanged.
CEO Marcel Kokkeel:
“Since the strategy update in 2011, we have made good progress to become the leading shopping centre specialist in the Nordics. By providing urban convenience in the heart of communities we are committed to connecting communities with everyday services. As Citycon’s shopping centres are well located in the heart of urban areas and connected to public transportation, the centres are well positioned in the rapidly changing retail environment as they provide customers with ‘More than shopping’.
Today, we are hosting investors, analysts and media in our flagship shopping centre Iso Omena in Espoo. This asset is an excellent example of our strategy to develop shopping centres in which diverse everyday shopping and services are complemented by a variety of food and beverage, public services, such as healthcare and library, as well as leisure and entertainment.
The company is committed to continue recycling capital and investing in the fastest growing cities in the Nordics whilst maintaining a Loan-to-Value within the range of 40-45%. In 2022 we expect that 80-90% of our portfolio will be prime assets in capital areas. In addition to the 800 million euro retail (re)development pipeline, we have identified approximately 4,000 residential building rights that underpin the urban potential of our assets.”
