Stop the impact on the shareholders? | The world of business


COMMENT by Oscar Properties,, now tvarbromsar at the eleventh hour, no save, hopefully, lagenhetskopare, suppliers, and banks, and may be very risky loan in Stockholm a long time, the most expansive bostadsprojektor. For the shareholder, the location is close to pitch black.

Nollranteeran established in Stockholm, already, the upward bostadsrattspriser was almost sure envagsmarknad, with all the shiny, and at the same time controlling the risk. In the autumn of 2019 is now, once again, a situation in which the speed lanedrivna increase in value that has been built up is being threatened by the gravitational pull of the downward path.

That, in a downturn, with the potential for freezing, sooner or later it would become inconvenient for the most of the expansive bostadsrattsprojektorerna was in the world of Business there early on (with the benefit of hindsight, when the party was going on which is the best).

No, at least right now, a lot of pain for the tisdagsmorgonens rapporteur on the situation of Oscar Properties. They did the best with the gas on a large scale, Stockholm’s premium and lyxsegment, and the company’s rise and current problems, at this point, just as in the headlines, as speculation about its imminent fall.


The third quarter report, in summary form, in the box, it shows that Oscar Properties, defensive, started to supply to the throttle construction starts, and the shrinking of the portfolio.

(A) and (O) to the company’s future is, of course, is to make the law of supply vis-à-vis the customers who have reserved or have already purchased housing. This applies both to the build quality, which bostadsrattsekonomin of the organizations that have been created, once they are handed over to the customer. The customers ‘ interest in buying new homes, “on drawing”, is very much dependent on the brand to be perceived, which are not only luxurious, but are also given as regards the finances and the securing of quality guarantees.

The defensive side is also very good in terms of Oscar, the Properties of the creditors. Most of the banks, with its strongest assets, and regular opportunities to terminate or renegotiate the relationship. However, even for the more daring hograntelangivare in the obligationsklasserna, as well, they can always threaten to put the building into bankruptcy if they don’t get paid on time.

It is also good for the suppliers with the legitimate claims and needs to be paid in full for the unfinished tasks, before they begin to count on the possible future of the lower byggaktivitet. The same is true for partners who would like to see her projektinvesteringar completed without interruption and within budget.

The stock market’s doubters, however, have already figured out that the defense is not necessarily a good thing, those who are already most available to the shareholders:

  • Stamaktieagarna depends on uppsidespotentialen is not to be limited to the amount, which is exactly what the company is doing now. And in inbromsad production, and the future of the ”pie” can be shrunk through the sale of projektandelar (most recently with the sale of half of the The Helixproject Slatto and Fastpartner). Secondly, by expanding konverteringserbjudanden to the preferred stock and the lender, giving all the more diluted through the increasing number of additional ordinary shares to all the poorer classes.
  • Preferensaktiernas the risk is increasing, at the same time, the concessions made to the lender with the collateral, including the fact that the company is selling off assets to make it a priority to pay off and pay back the skuldutrymme, which may not be replaced with a new one.

Finally, it should be noted that the equity / assets ratio target, so it hangs projekttillgangarnas the value of the so-called “going concern”-based on an assumption of continued operation. The value of the assets in a stressed or forced tvangsavveckling is uncertain, and entirely dependent on the market’s appetite for risk.

In addition, present the warranties to, and risks to the delivery of the compounds to a bostadsrattsprojektor created. They represent a possible risk, which, if it goes bad, can reduce the reported profit and shareholders ‘ equity, and cash flows much later than the time when the profits are taken up, and the payments flowing in.


Nothing ventured, nothing gained in the stockholmsk bostadsrattsprojektering?

Well, maybe because of the creative and transaktionsglada grundarentreprenorer. Most definitely so, and their well-paid advisors, who cheered on and made a near risk-free profit, both to build the ‘ surge, as now, to take care of their restructuring measures, and, perhaps, also on how to deal with any future cases.

No matter how, and if, Oscar Properties to clear it up its the pressure of the situation, in the movement’s projects and the finansieringsled, so it will be interesting to see how the financial markets are choosing to deal with the settlement of a hogriskprojektor in the forest. There can be a ripple effect in both personal byggleverantorer, and the source of funding.

To the bad at risk of the biggest single losers in the market, to be weak, protected the households in which they are produced to be sold on, or has chosen to speculate in, to a large extent, the failure bostadsrattsdrom. Something that is surely uppermost in the minds of the treasury and the housing minister Per Bolund (MP) from time to time.

As regards shareholders, you should “design the drawing”model, the risks and the weaknesses can hardly be a news story. Here are the hot venture-capital and for good reason.

  • Liquidity: At the checkout, there is a 70-million-dollars. By Oscar Properties,, expect the actual the business’s working capital requirements for the next 12 months at the moment, 1,66 billion for the year.
