Quartiers Properties has two outstanding share types in the form of ordinary shares and preference shares. The ordinary and preference shares in Quartiers Properties have been traded on Stockholm’s Nasdaq First North Growth Market since 21 June 2017. The preference share series was previously traded on NGM Nordic MTF.
The two share types allow opportunities for two separate investment approaches. The preference share generates an annual quarterly dividend of around 10.7 percent (based on the share price at 31 December 2018), but has a theoretically limited upside as the company is able to redeem the preference shares at a premium of 20 percent, corresponding to SEK 12 per share.
A direct investment in a property in Spain can in many cases be perceived as complicated and incur significant transaction costs. An investment in Quartiers’ ordinary shares is an opportunity to expose your share portfolio to Spain’s growing property market, and in particular on the Spanish Costa del Sol, which is the location of the company’s existing property portfolio.
Quartiers’ long-term ambition is to consolidate its position in the Spanish property market and it is the only Swedish property company operating in Spain with shares that can be traded on one of the Swedish marketplaces, including the Stockholm Stock Market, NGM Nordic MTF, Aktietorget and Nasdaq First North Growth Market.
