Outlook for 2018
Technopolis estimates that the Group net sales in 2018 will be at the same level as it was in 2017. The company expects the Group EBITDA to remain at the same level as in 2017, or slightly below.
The estimates take into account the divestiture of operations in Jyväskylä, Finland in late 2017. The negative effects of the Jyväskylä divestitures on Group Net sales and EBITDA, on an annual level, are approximately EUR 14.5 million and EUR 7.2 million, respectively.
Furthermore, the estimate takes into account the company’s view on the planned completion of organic growth projects in progress, as well as its view on economic developments in each Technopolis market, and the development of the company’s occupancy and rental rates.
