Focused business model adds value

Project development as value driver
Development and refinement are important components in Catena's overall business modell. They create conditions for value growth in the existing portfolio or through completely new constructions projects. The large land reserve in strategically important positions is an important prerequisite for growing with new and existing customers.
Strong cash flow provides a stable platform
Maintaining a considerable breadth of customers, several of whom are among the largest distributors in the market, safeguards strong cash flow with a secure and stable base for the Company.
The global economy and trade drive demand for improved logistics solutions able to meet needs for efficient flows in an increasingly complex and integrated world market.
Extensive structural changes with technological innovation as the common denominator, are bringing new consumption patterns. Digitally driven trade brings major changes that increase the need for logistics space, but also place demands on fast, individualised and climate-smart deliveries. The logistics chain is becoming even more critical, bringing increased demand for modern logistics properties in appropriate locations.
Demographic conditions affects Catena's operations. Urbanisation is driving a concentration of logistics positions closer to the customer and digitally driven trade is established most strongly among younger people, suggesting an accelerating growth rate.
