Vonovia SE said Tuesday that net profit and revenue for the first quarter increased, with the company's residential portfolio in Sweden being a particularly bright spot.

The German real-estate company said first-quarter net profit rose to 234.7 million euros ($283.2 million) from EUR197.5 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Revenue for the period climbed to EUR1.15 billion from EUR998.8 million a year prior.

Funds from operations, or operating profit after interest and taxes, rose to EUR382.9 million from EUR335.5 million a year earlier.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization increased to EUR506.1 million from EUR456.1 million.

Vonovia said it continues to expect 2021 revenue of around EUR4.90 billion-EUR5.10 billion, while adjusted Ebitda should be between EUR1.98 billion and EUR2.03 billion. Funds from operations should come in between EUR1.42 billion and EUR1.47 billion for the year.
