HiQ divests holding in Westend Affärscentrum

HiQ has today entered into an agreement with YIT to sell HiQ’s holdings in Westend Affärscentrum OY. The divestment will result in a gain of approximately SEK 20 million, which will be booked in the second quarter 2019.

HiQ has, through the subsidiary HiQ Finland, owned 29.9 per cent of Westend Affärscentrum OY which therefore has been consolidated as an associated company. Westend Affärscentrum owns and manages an office building in Espoo, Finland, in which HiQ Finland previously had their office.

HiQ’s assessment is that the divestment will result in a gain during the second quarter 2019 of approximately SEK 20 million, net of transaction costs. Payment for the sold shares will be done during a two year period, with the first payment being made in the second quarter 2019.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
