In total, current negotiations encompass property worth €700 million (SEK 6.5 bn); their divestment would generate a total capital gain of €134,4 million (SEK 1 250 m) and profit for calculating dividends of €169,35 million (SEK 1 575 m).
The schedule remains unchanged, and a binding agreement could be signed before the mid-point of the year.
