Diös is the largest private property company in northern Sweden in terms of property value, and defines its market as consisting of 10 growing cities from Borlänge in the south to Luleå in the north. The majority of Diös' properties are found in the respective cities' central business districts. Given the size of its portfolio, the company has a dominant market position in e.g. cities with underlying growth like Östersund, Umeå, Luleå and Sundsvall. The markets that Diös operates in are characterised by relatively low rental rates and high yields.
The main risk for a real estate company is the macro developments in the markets in which it operates. Diös has some exposure to riskier segments such as consumer discretionary, restaurants and hotels. Moreover, Diös has historically acquired property portfolios via rights issues, with dilution as a negative consequence for shareholders. It might become harder to find meaningful acquisitions since Diös dominates the property market in northern Sweden.
