DGAP-News: TLG IMMOBILIEN AG / Key word(s): Preliminary Results/Real Estate
TLG IMMOBILIEN announces a valuation increase of EUR 400 m
- Increase in value of around EUR 400 m for H1/ 2019, portfolio value has increased to EUR 4.6 bn
- Main drivers behind the increase in value are the Berlin portfolio and future projects
- Pro-forma EPRA NAV has increased by around 18% to EUR 3.3 bn
- Pro-forma Net LTV has dropped to below 30%
As a result of the revaluation, the value of the property portfolio has increased from around EUR 4.1 bn as at 31 December 2018 to around EUR 4.6 bn as at 30 June 2019, taking into account acquisitions and disposals in the first six months of 2019.
On the basis of the EPRA Net Asset Value (EPRA NAV) as of 31 March 2019 in an amount of EUR 2.8 bn, and taking into account the EUR 220 m capital increase on 26 June 2019 as well as the dividend distribution in amount of EUR 94 m on 24 May 2019, this results in a pro forma EPRA NAV of approx. EUR 3.3 bn. This is equivalent to an increase of around 18%. As a result the pro-forma Net LTV has dropped to below 30%.
'This value increase reflects the Berlin strong office market performance and is also a result of our company's new management focus on future projects. Our aim is to continue generating value by using our asset management platform and our strength in the capital markets' says Barak Bar-Hen, CEO of TLG IMMOBILIEN.
'Essentially, the EUR 400 m higher valuation enabled us to raise our pro-forma EPRA NAV to EUR 3.3 bn, an increase of 18% compared to the first quarter of 2019, and in turn lower our Net LTV to below 30%. As such, we will have much more flexibility when it comes to financing the future growth of the company through acquisitions and investments', says Gerald Klinck, CFO of TLG IMMOBILIEN.
