·        Revenue: €161.0 million (+5.7%)

·        EBIT: €140.2 million (+6.7%)

·        Consolidated profit: €85.2 million (+18.1%)

·        EPRA earnings per share: €1.79 per share (+7.8 %)

·        FFO: €1.88 per share (+8.0 %)


Hamburg-based shopping center investor Deutsche EuroShop's result for the first nine months of 2017 confirms its guidance for the year as a whole.

 

Revenue rose by nearly 6% to €161.0 million. Net operating income (NOI) also improved by 6% to €144.4 million, while earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) climbed by around 7% to €140.2 million. Consolidated profit increased by more than 18% from €72.2 million to €85.2 million and earnings per share were up 11% from €1.34 to €1.49.

 

EPRA earnings, i.e. operating earnings adjusted for valuation effects, rose considerably from €1.66 to €1.79 per share, which corresponded to an increase of 8%. Funds from operations (FFO) grew accordingly from €1.74 per share to €1.88 per share. In absolute terms, FFO stood at €107.6 million, which is up almost 15% on the same period in the previous year.

 

“The improved results are mainly attributable to the new additions to the portfolio – Saarpark-Center Neunkirchen and the Olympia Center in Brno,” said Wilhelm Wellner, CEO. “All things considered, the figures are testimony to the sustained stability of our business model, which is well positioned with an occupancy rate of around 99% and a diversified mix of more than 2,700 rental agreements.”

Olaf Borkers, Member of the Executive Board, added: “Lower interest costs also contributed to the positive business performance. Over the course of the year, the average interest rate for our credit portfolio declined by 80 basis points, from 3.7% to 2.9%. We see further potential here and are working constantly to optimise the financing terms. As expected, our outstanding €100 million convertible bond was nearly fully converted into shares in early November, which improved our equity base even further.”


Deutsche EuroShop is standing by its previous guidance for financial year 2017, and expects:

  • revenue of between €216 million and €220 million
  • earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of between €187 million and €191 million
  • earnings before taxes (EBT) excluding measurement gains / losses of between €145 million and €148 million
  • funds from operations (FFO) of between €140 million and €143 million or between €2.42 and €2.46 per share

The company continues to envisage a five cent increase in the dividend to €1.45 per share for 2017.
