Potsdam, 14 February 2022 - Deutsche Konsum REIT-AG (ISIN DE000A14KRD3) recorded strong growth in the first quarter of the new financial year 2021/2022.
Improved letting margin / Solid FFO growth
Funds from operations ("FFO"), however, rose slightly less by 6% from EUR 10.1 million to EUR 10.7 million, resulting from approximately EUR 1.0 million higher net financial expenses. Accordingly, FFO per share was EUR 0.30 and thus also increased by 6%.
aFFO (FFO after deduction of capitalised modernisation measures) were EUR 7.6 million, 53% above the previous year's level, due to less cost-intensive investments in various revitalisation properties.
The average acquisition yield of the overall portfolio is currently around 10.3%.
In addition, since the beginning of the new financial year DKR has acquired a further ten retail properties with an investment value of around EUR 38 million and an annual rent of EUR 3.2 million, which corresponds to a purchase factor of 11.9 times the annual rent. One of these properties has already been transferred to DKR. The transfer of benefits and encumbrances of the remaining properties is expected to take place successively until April 2022.
Besides the sale of a sub-portfolio with seven properties already notarised at the end of the last financial year, the sales of the portfolio properties in Oer-Erkenschwick, Neumünster and Beratzhausen with a total annual rent of EUR 1.5 million were additionally notarised for EUR 27.3 million in the first quarter of the current financial year. Overall, DKR expects gross inflows of around EUR 75 million in the current financial year from the disposals to date, with a simultaneous decline of around EUR 4.1 million in annual rent, which corresponds to 18.2 times the annual rent.
Taking into account all notarised acquisitions and sales, the pro forma portfolio thus comprises a total of 173 properties with a total lettable area of approximately 1,025,000 square metres and a balance sheet value of EUR 984 million, generating an annualised rent of EUR 72.0 million.
This means that DKR has already replaced around three quarters of the rents lost through the disposals with the purchases made so far in the first quarter of the financial year. In addition, DKR is in the process of further concrete purchases and expects additional acquisitions in the near future.
EPRA NTA per share rises to EUR 10.29 / Net LTV amounts to 52.5%
The net LTV amounts to 52.5% as of the balance sheet date and is thus only slightly above the target figure of around 50%.
