“Covivio ends this half-year well on the way to its full-year objectives. Our markets are performing well and our diversified position, as leader in our segments, is reflected in growth in all our operational and financial indicators. The strengthening of the balance sheet, through the successful dividend payment in shares and the progress of our disposal plan, has enabled us to reach our new leverage target below 40% in the 1st half of the year”.
