Annual Financial Report of Godewind Immobilien AG underlines successful start of operating business in 2018

  • Four office properties with a book value of over EUR 300 million acquired at year-end 2018 and recognised in return
  • EPRA Net Asset Value (EPRA NAV) of close to EUR 400 million
  • Group result of around EUR 10.1 million achieved
  • Strong growth expected for the current financial year

Frankfurt am Main, 10 April 2019Godewind Immobilien AG (ISIN: DE000A2G8XX3, trading symbol: GWD, Godewind), a company specializing in German office real estate, has successfully launched its business model in its first financial year, which is designed to increase earnings through expansion.

Development of a profitable office portfolio
Following its IPO in April 2018, Godewind acquired four office properties with an IFRS carrying amount of around EUR 300.9 million as of 31 December 2018. The targeted purchase of office properties with extensive vacant space created the conditions for profitable growth in the coming years. As a result, the consolidated result for the 2018 financial year was EUR 10.1 million. Net rental income amounted to around EUR 0.5 million. Funds from operations (FFO) amounted to around EUR minus 3.8 million. Hence, the income from the acquired properties was only included in the business figures on a pro rata basis. The first acquisition was not completed until the end of October 2018, and the last property for 2018 was closed on 28 December.

Despite the relatively late closings, the performance of the newly acquired properties was already clearly positive, underlining the quality of the office properties acquired. The EPRA Net Asset Value (EPRA NAV) for the acquisitions already completed amounted to around EUR 396.4 million or EUR 3.65 per share at the end of the 2018 financial year. Net LTV amounted to minus 19.7 percent at the end of 2018, as cash and cash equivalents exceeded financial liabilities.

Excellent growth prospects for 2019
For the current fiscal year, the Executive Board expects a positive business developmenteven under somewhat more volatile macroeconomic conditions.

Based on current estimates, EPRA Net Asset Value, the key earnings indicator at the end of the financial year, is expected to achieve a result well above the previous year’s level. FFO should also increase significantly and are expected to be in the mid single-digit million range. Annualised net rental income (NRI) should also increase significantly. The Net LTV is expected to be between 45 percent and 55 percent.

This forecast does not include additions or disposals that have not yet been specified, but does include all acquisitions that have already been completed and contractually secured. That is in detail: “ComConCenter” in Frankfurt (closing on 31 October 2018), “Airport Business Center” in Dusseldorf (closing on 30 November 2018), “Sunsquare” near Munich (closing on 15 December 2018), “Frankfurt Airport Center” (closing on 28 December 2018). “Pentahof” in Hamburg and “Eight Dornach” near Munich (closing on January 31, 2019) and “Y 2” in Frankfurt (closing on February 13, 2019). The acquisitions “Quartier am Zeughaus” in Hamburg and “Herzogterrassen” in Dusseldorf are to be closed by the end of April 2019.

Basis laid for first dividend payouts
The total of nine office properties thus form a solid basis for further NAV and FFO increases in the current financial year and for the first dividend distributions for the 2019 financial year. With a gross purchase volume of around EUR 740 million of Value Add and Core(+) office properties to date, Godewind is currently almost fully invested. In line with its business model, the company will now initially focus on reducing the 28 percent vacancy rate that has been specifically acquired. In addition, the exact extent of business development depends to a large extent on the speed with which planned further real estate acquisitions are implemented. The company intends to announce further details in the course of the year.

The complete Annual Financial Report 2018 of Godewind Immobilen AG will be available in the Investor Relations section of the website later today:
