Berlin, 11 May 2017 - TLG IMMOBILIEN AG has enjoyed a successful start to the new year. The report published today on the first quarter of 2017 shows rental income of around EUR 39.2 m. Compared to the same period in the previous year, this represents growth of 20.7% (Q1/2016: EUR 32.5 m). The funds from operations (FFO), a key indicator for the Group, increased disproportionately by 23.3% to EUR 21.1 m due to the growth in the portfolio (Q1/2016: EUR 17.1 m).
Compared to late 2016, the EPRA Vacancy Rate of the portfolio as a whole decreased by 0.5 pp to just 3.3%. The weighted average lease term (WALT) of the portfolio of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG remained unchanged at 6.1 years as at 31 March 2017. At around EUR 1.4 bn, the EPRA Net Asset Value (EPRA NAV) increased by 10.7% compared to 31 December 2016 and was EUR 18.62 per share as at 31 March 2017 (31/12/2016: EUR 18.51 per share).
TLG IMMOBILIEN AG continued to adjust its financial structure with a capital increase and had a conservative Net LTV of 37.5% as at the reporting date (31/12/2016: 43.4%). The average costs of debt of the company were 2.4%. As at 31 March 2017, the existing loans had an average remaining term of 5.8 years. As part of the capital increase in January 2017, TLG IMMOBILIEN AG was able to place around 6.7 m shares and generate gross proceeds of around EUR 116.0 m.
In the first quarter of 2017, the number of properties in the portfolio of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG decreased slightly by 14 to 390 properties in total (31/12/2016: 404 properties). This decrease is due primarily to disposals from the retail asset class as part of active portfolio management aimed at preserving the high quality of the portfolio. In spite of these disposals, the value of the portfolio only changed by a marginal -0.3 pp, remaining at around EUR 2.2 bn.
'We believe that the year is going exceptionally well: since the start of the year, we have been able to report proceeds of EUR 116.0 m from our capital increase, significant new rental agreements in Berlin in particular and the acquisition of another property. We will strive to maintain this rate of successful developments over the course of the year', says Peter Finkbeiner, member of the Management Board of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG.
