DGAP-News: HAMBORNER REIT AG / Key word(s): Quarter Results/Real Estate HAMBORNER REIT AG: Third quarter also successful, forecast for year as a whole confirmed 09.11.2011 / 07:00 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Press Release HAMBORNER REIT AG: Third quarter also successful, forecast for year as a whole confirmed - Rental and leasing income and FFO up 28% as at 30 September 2011 - Portfolio reaches value of around EUR500 million - FFO increase of at least 30% forecast by end of 2011 Duisburg, 9 November 2011 - HAMBORNER REIT AG today presented its report for the third quarter of 2011 and has had a highly successful first nine months. Rental and leasing income for the first nine months rose by around 28% on the previous year's level to a total of EUR23 million. The increase is essentially due to the new investments. The vacancy rate is still low at 1.8% or just 1.3% after rent guarantees. In the first three quarters, HAMBORNER generated an operating result of around EUR10.3 million (previous year: EUR9.3 million) and comprehensive income for the period of EUR5.5 million (previous year: EUR2.6 million). The previous year's earnings were squeezed by the exit tax paid in connection with the transformation into a REIT last year. HAMBORNER systematically implemented its growth activities in the first nine months of the year. After seven properties in Brunnthal, Bad Homburg, Regensburg, Leipzig, Langenfeld, Erlangen and Offenburg with a total volume of around EUR111 million were already added to the HAMBORNER portfolio by the end of September, the E-Center in Freiburg acquired last year and now completed was also handed over at the start of November. In addition, the agreement for the 'NuOffice' in Munich - a further highly attractive property with advanced energy features - was signed in October. An OBI DIY store in Aachen is expected to be added to the portfolio in February 2012. With the properties that have been added to the books to date, HAMBORNER has achieved its growth target for this year - a portfolio value of around EUR500 million. And the prospects for 2011 as a whole are also still positive at an operational level. The members of the Managing Board Dr. Rüdiger Mrotzek and Hans Richard Schmitz can now confirm the forecast for the year of growth in rents of at least 25% and an increase in FFO of at least 30%. FFO for the first nine months amounted to around EUR12.3 million, an increase of approximately 28% on the previous year's level. The company's financial situation is also still extremely solid and highly comfortable. The REIT equity ratio is 56% and the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio 38%. Key figures as at 30 September 2011
