+++ Our values +++
We are Germany’s only public company, that invests solely in shopping centers in prime locations. We invest only in carefully chosen properties. High quality standards and a high degree of flexibility are just as important to us as sustained earnings growth from index- and turnover-linked rental contracts. In addition, we boast a higher than average occupancy rate of around 99% and professional center management – these are the pillars of our success.
+++Our goals +++
Deutsche EuroShop does not seek short-term success, but rather long-term growth and the resulting stable increase in the value of our portfolio. Our objective is to distribute an attractive dividend to our shareholders every year from secure long-term income. In order to achieve this, we shall acquire further prime properties, and hence establish ourselves as one of the largest companies in Europe focusing on retail properties.
„The Art of Shopping“
The main theme of this year’s Annual Report, “The Art of Shopping”, expresses the close connection between the customers’ shopping experience in our centers as well as our shareholders’ investment motives and Deutsche EuroShop itself: we all want to shop where the prospects are excellent, on a sound basis, where funds flow freely, and for value.
Deutsche EuroShop has mastered the art of making shopping profitable. It is therefore no coincidence that the pictures in the Annual Report address the multiple meanings of the main theme in an artistic manner. The Hamburg-based artist and author, Oliver Löhr, arranged scenes from details of three of our shopping centers and used them to produce five canvases measuring 60 x 84 cm. These are reproduced in a more accessible format on pages The Share, The Centers, Group Management Report and
Consolidated Financial Statements.
Shopping centers as an art – the art of shopping.
