DGAP-News: HAMBORNER REIT AG / Key word(s): Quarter Results/Half Year Results HAMBORNER REIT AG: Successful business performance continues 08.08.2013 / 07:31 --------------------------------------------------------------------- HAMBORNER REIT AG: Successful business performance continues - Rental and leasing income up 22% in first half of year, net profit for period climbs 49% - FFO rises 27% - Forecast for year as a whole raised slightly Duisburg, 8 August 2013 Rental and leasing income up 22% in first half of year, net profit for the period climbs 49% Rental and leasing income rose by around 22% in the first six months to a total of EUR22.2 million. The main factor contributing to this increase was the rental income from the property additions of 2012 and the first half of 2013. The vacancy rate is at a relatively low level of 3.7%. The rise as against the previous year (1.7%) is due in particular to the recently acquired and newly built properties in Munich and Berlin, which were not yet fully let when transferred. Multi-year rent guarantees have been agreed with the sellers for the vacant areas in these Munich and Berlin properties, which are now almost fully let. Taking these into account, the vacancy rate as at 30 June 2013 was only 2.4%. In the first half of 2013, HAMBORNER generated an operating result of around EUR11.0 million (previous year: EUR8.9 million) and a net profit for the period of EUR5.5 million, an increase of 49% on the previous year (EUR3.8 million). Portfolio value increases to EUR674 million Following the transfer of the LEED platinum 'NuOffice' in Munich and the LEED platinum pre-certified office building on EUREF Campus in Berlin in the first quarter of this year, HAMBORNER signed a purchase agreement for an office and retail property in Bayreuth in April. This property was already added to HAMBORNER's books at the end of May. As at 30 June 2013, the market value of the portfolio was therefore EUR674 million. FFO increase of 27% - forecast for 2013 as a whole raised slightly: FFO, a key control parameter of the company, was EUR12.4 million after the first six months. This figure is therefore around 27% higher than the previous year's level. For 2013 as a whole, the Managing Board is striving for growth in rental income of around 20% and intends to increase FFO by 20-25%. NAV amounted to EUR8.01 per share as at 30 June 2013 (EUR8.17 as at 31 December 2012). The company's financial situation remains very comfortable. The REIT equity ratio is 51.9% and the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio 43.8%. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Key figures as at 30 June 2013
