  • FFO stable at EUR 41.1 million / FFO per share at EUR 1.17

Potsdam, 20 December 2022 - Deutsche Konsum REIT-AG (ISIN DE000A14KRD3) has closed the financial year 2021/2022 with a solid result.

Solid increase in rental income / FFO stable
The Company's rental income increased by 7% in the 2021/2022 financial year compared to the previous year, from EUR 69.7 million to EUR 74.4 million. This is due on the one hand to further acquisitions, but also to index-linked rent increases in the past financial year due to the value protection clauses. The increase in rents was counteracted by the rent disposals of the properties sold in the financial year.

Funds from operations ("FFO") were stable at EUR 41.1 million (previous year EUR 41.2 million) due to property disposals as well as higher maintenance expenses and slightly higher value adjustments, which is within the previous year's forecast (EUR 40.0 million to EUR 44.0 million). Accordingly, FFO per share was also stable at EUR 1.17. The aFFO (FFO after deduction of capitalised modernisation measures) was also stable at EUR 22.5 million (previous year EUR 22.6 million) or EUR 0.64 per share (previous year EUR 0.64 per share) due to extensive investments in further revitalisation properties.

Balance sheet value of the real estate portfolio at EUR 1.1 billion.
In the past financial year, DKR acquired 25 retail properties with an investment volume of around EUR 100 million and an annual rent of EUR 8.0 million (average initial yield of 8.2%), of which the transfer of risks and rewards of ownership of 14 properties with annual rents of EUR 3.9 million took place before the balance sheet date. This contrasts with the disposal of twelve sold properties with annual rents of EUR 3.4 million and sales proceeds of EUR 63.7 million (average yield 5.3%).

Furthermore, as part of the annual property valuation by an external and independent valuation company, the property portfolio was revalued by approximately EUR 28 million as of the balance sheet date (after capex investments of EUR 18.6 million), which means that the property portfolio is currently valued at approximately 14.3 times the annual rent.

As a result, the property portfolio recognised as of 30 September 2022 comprises 175 retail properties with a balance sheet value of EUR 1.051 billion (30 September 2021: EUR 1.014 billion) and generates an annualised annual rent of approximately EUR 73.2 million (30 September 2021: EUR 72.9 million).

Another food-anchored property in Suhl (Thuringia) was acquired by notarial deed in October 2022. The investment volume for this property is around EUR 0.5 million. The annualised rent amounts to approximately TEUR 54. The change of use and encumbrance of the property is expected to take place at the beginning of 2023.

Including the other properties purchased and sold, for which the change of use and encumbrance did take place after 30 September 2022, the DKR portfolio currently comprises 185 retail properties on a pro forma basis with an annual rent of EUR 76.9 million and a balance sheet value of EUR 1.083 billion.

The average yield on acquisition of the entire portfolio is currently around 10.0%.

EPRA NTA per share increases to EUR 10.98 / Net LTV amounts to 49.7%
The EPRA NTA per share (fully diluted) increased by 9% to EUR 10.98 as of 30 September 2022 (30 September 2021: EUR 10.10 per share). This is primarily the result of the profit for the period, which is significantly influenced by the property valuation in addition to the management result.

The net LTV at the end of the financial year was 49.7% (previous year 53.2%) and is thus slightly below the target value of around 50%.

Dividend proposal for the 2021/2022 business year of EUR 0.48 per share
The Management Board is proposing a dividend of EUR 0.48 per share for the past financial year, which is 20% higher than the previous year's dividend.

FFO forecast for the 2022/2023 financial year again between EUR 40 million and EUR 44 million.
For the new financial year, the Management Board currently expects FFO between EUR 40 million and EUR 44 million, taking into account the higher interest rates for new financing due to the ECB's interest rate steps.

Rolf Elgeti, CEO of Deutsche Konsum REIT-AG:
"Despite the difficult overall environment, DKR's defensive business model again proved to be very robust in the past financial year 2021/2022. Above all, the value protection clauses have proven to be effective instruments in the current inflationary environment, with which even the interest rate increases can be compensated to a large extent. Furthermore, with selective property sales at attractive conditions, we have extensive liquid funds available for attractive purchases in the current situation."
