DGAP-News: Deutsche Konsum REIT-AG / Key word(s): Quarterly / Interim Statement
- Rental income increased by 29% to EUR 12.2 million
- FFO at EUR 7.3 million or EUR 0.25 per share
- EPRA NAV at EUR 10.13 per share
- Net LTV at 48.5%
- FFO run rate forecast (as of 30/09/2020) raised to EUR 40 million - EUR 42 million
Broderstorf, 13 February 2020 - Deutsche Konsum REIT-AG ("DKR") (ISIN DE000A14KRD3) grew strongly and profitably in the first quarter of FY 2019/2020 ("Q1"), as expected.
Rental income and FFO increase significantly
As a result, current funds from operations ("FFO") increased by 33% to EUR 7.3 million, which is primarily due to economies of scale and more favourable refinancing costs. The aFFO (FFO after deduction of capitalised modernisation measures) amounted to EUR 3.5 million (2018/2019: EUR 5.1 million) due to current revitalisation projects for various properties.
Entire property portfolio grows to EUR 0.8 billion - strong increase in rental income expected from the third quarter
In addition, the financial year to date has been characterised by a high acquisition volume. In total, DKR has already acquired 44 retail properties in the current financial year, with an investment volume of around EUR 170 million and an annual rent of EUR 15.6 million, thus already exceeding the purchase volume of the previous financial year. The transfer of benefits and encumbrances is expected to take place successively until 1 June, so that a significant increase in rental income can be expected from the third quarter onwards. This is offset by the sale of a property in Berlin-Tegel in October 2019.
DKR's total portfolio (pro forma) thus currently comprises 166 retail properties with an annual rent of around EUR 64 million and a book value of around EUR 795 million.
The acquisition yield of the entire portfolio is currently around 10.5%.
EPRA NAV increases to EUR 10.13 per share / Net LTV stable at 48.5%
On the basis of the high purchase volume already made in the current financial year and the still well-filled acquisition pipeline, the Management Board is raising its expectation of an FFO run rate (annualised FFO without accrual effects) of between EUR 38 million and EUR 40 million as of 30 September 2020 to a new corridor of between EUR 40 million and EUR 42 million.
Rolf Elgeti, CEO of Deutsche Konsum REIT-AG: "The results of the first quarter of the financial year clearly demonstrate DKR's planned strong and profitable growth. Even more exciting, however, are the prospects which, due to the record purchase volume of currently EUR 170 million, will lead to a significant expansion of the balance sheet and rental cash flows in the further course of the financial year. Here, we also expect further increases in profitability and margin improvements through economies of scale, more favourable financing and efficiency gains due to professional asset management".
