Hamburg, 15 August 2017 - The shopping center investor Deutsche EuroShop recorded net operating income (NOI) of EUR95.3 million (+4.0%) in the first half of 2017, on revenues of EUR105.8 million (+3.9% year on year). Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) increased by 4.1% to EUR92.5 million.

"The Deutsche EuroShop business model once again proved its reliability in the first six months of 2017. In comparison with the previous year's period, we posted a considerable improvement in earnings along with key figures that developed as planned," said Wilhelm Wellner, CEO.

Earnings before taxes and measurement (EBT excl. measurement gains/losses) increased from EUR65.0 million to EUR73.0 million (+12.3%). Consolidated profit increased by 15.5% from EUR48.7 million to EUR56.2 million. Earnings per share increased from EUR0.90 to EUR0.99.

EPRA earnings, i.e. operating earnings adjusted for valuation effects, rose from EUR1.11 to EUR1.20 per share, which corresponded to an increase of 8.1%. Funds from operations (FFO) also rose markedly by 7.8% to EUR1.25 per share (2016:. EUR1.16) and in absolute terms stood at EUR 70.9 million, which is 12.7% above the previous year's period.

Wilhelm Wellner provided the reasons for the positive earnings development: "Alongside lower interest costs, new additions to the portfolio - Saarpark-Center Neunkirchen and the Olympia Center Brno - in particular contributed to growth."

The Deutsche EuroShop management team is sticking to its guidance for financial year 2017 and is confident of being able to pay a dividend of EUR1.45 per share.
