Deutsche EuroShop: Earnings up 22% in first quarter of 2013

  • Year starts according to plan
  • Initial contribution to earnings by the Herold-Center Norderstedt 
  • Consolidated profit: EUR 20.1 million (+22%)
  • Forecast increased following acquisition of additional shares in Dresden


With the results it posted for the first quarter of 2013, the year has started according to plan for shopping center investor Deutsche EuroShop. At €42.4 million, revenue was 10% higher than during the first three months of the previous year. Net operating income climbed 12% to €38.6 million while EBIT rose 10% to €37.3 million.

 

"This growth is especially due to the contribution of the Herold-Center in Norderstedt which has been a part of our portfolio since the start of the year", said Claus-Matthias Bφge, Executive Board Spokesman for Deutsche EuroShop, when explaining this renewed and considerable rise in earnings.

 

Consolidated profit grew 22% to €20.1 million. Earnings per share increased from €0.32 to €0.37. EPRA, i.e. the result adjusted for valuation effects, rose from €0.34 to €0.40 per share which corresponds to an increase of 18%. FFO (funds from operations) – an important ratio for real estate companies – improved by 16% to €26.9 million.

 

Shortly after the end of the reporting period, Deutsche EuroShop increased its shareholding in the Altmarkt-Galerie Dresden to 100% by acquiring the remaining 33% of shares from its long-term co-investor. The investment volume amounts to some €132 million including proportionate liabilities assumed in the amount of €62 million.

 

Following this acquisition of additional shares in the Altmarkt-Galerie Dresden, the Board of Directors has adjusted its forecast for financial year 2013 and now anticipates

  • revenue of between €186 million and €189 million (previously: €170-€173 million)
  • earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of between €162 million and €165 million
    (previously: €148-€151 million)
  • earnings before taxes (EBT) without measurement gains/losses of between €113 million and €116 million (previously: €112-€115 million) and
  • funds from operations (FFO) per share unchanged at between €1.99 and €2.03.

The company expects to pay a dividend of at least €1.20 per share once again in 2013.
