Revenues up 16.4%
Robust increase in commercial property rental income from the Parisian CBD (Central Business District): +37%
Continuation of the strategy aimed at refocusing on Paris real estate
Assets at the end of 2014: €1.6 billion, up 12%
- Revenue from commercial property up 19.8% (+37% in the Paris CBD)
The rental income of TERREÏS was €71.9 million in 2014, up 16.4% compared to 2013, mainly due to net asset growth. Based solely on the 4th quarter, rental income was €18.2 million, up 15.1%.
|Rental income||Year||4th quarter|
|(in € 000s)||2014||2013||% Change||2014||2013||% Change|
|Including Paris CBD||43,817||32,005||+36.9%||11,214||8,457||+32.6%|
- Rental income from Office/Retail, the core trade of TERREÏS, was €66.8 million, i.e. 93% of total rental income. The year-on-year increase of 19.8% is primarily related to the acquisition of 50-52 boulevard Haussmann (Paris 9) at the end of 2013 and of 41 avenue de Friedland (Paris 8) in the 2nd quarter of 2014.
On a like-for-like basis, Office/Retail rental income increased by 0.3% thanks to the strict management of leases in an environment of declining indices.
- Rents associated with residential amounted to €5.1 million. Their planned decrease reflects the policy of selling off residential assets as they become vacant.
- Financial occupancy rate: 95.3%
For the full year, the financial occupancy rate of the commercial property assets, which includes the technical vacancy of buildings under construction, stands at 95.3%, stable compared to 2013. The building at 6 boulevard Malesherbes (Paris 8) was completely re-rented on 1 November 2014.
- Assets of €1.6 billion at 31 December 2014
Since the end of the 1st half of 2014, the prevailing conditions on the prime Parisian market (declining rate of return, elevated price metrics) make opportunistic acquisitions more difficult. So, as announced last July, in the 4th quarter, TERREÏS concentrated on continuing the sale of its residential and regional assets.
The assets of TERREÏS at the end of December 2014 amount to €1.592 billion compared to €1.424 billion at the end of 2013, i.e. an increase of 12%. This increase of €168 million breaks down as follows:
- Acquisitions during the year: +€85.3 million
TERREÏS has strengthened its commercial property assets primarily in the Parisian CBD by acquiring in the 1st half of 2014 an upscale 6,157 sq. m. office building (with 40 parking spaces) located in the centre of the CBD at 41 avenue de Friedland (Paris 8), plus a 900 sq. m. floor of offices (with 24 parking spaces) at 43-47 avenue de la Grande Armée (Paris 17).
- Sales during the year: -€33.7 million (appraisal value)
TERRËIS has continued to dispose of its residential and regional properties in order to focus on Paris. These asset disposals now total €35.4 million (€29.7 million in residential assets and €5.7 million in regional assets), including €12.5 million in the 4th quarter alone. They were made at prices above the appraisal value (€33.7 million).
- Revaluation of assets: +€116.6 million, including €2.0 million related to acquisitions in 2014
At the end of 2014, the assets of TERREÏS were composed of 87% Parisian assets, 11% Paris area assets and 2% regional assets.
- Outlook: continuation of the strategy of concentrating on commercial property within the Parisian CBD
The goal of TERREÏS is to increase its Parisian commercial property portfolio and to focus on the Paris CBD. In the current prime Parisian market conditions, TERREÏS, while remaining attentive to opportunities that may arise, will concentrate on the disposal of its non-strategic assets under the best conditions (residential, regional and Paris area).
