On 10 March 2015, the TERREÏS Board of Directors signed off the Group's consolidated financial statements for 2014. They are once again characterized by a double-digit growth in key indicators of value creation, including EPRA liquidation NAV (+16.8 %) and current cash flow before disposals (+22.5 %).
TERREÏS rental income stood at €71.9 million in 2014, up 16.4 % compared to 2013, mainly due to net asset growth.
Rental income from tertiary business (Office/Retail), the core trade of TERREÏS, was up 19.8 % (+37 % in the Parisian CBD) and represents 93 % of total rental income. Despite a declining Real Estate indices in 2014, tertiary income increased by 0.3 % thanks to a policy of strict lease management.
The financial occupancy rate of the commercial property assets, which takes into account total vacancy, including technical vacancies, stands at the high level of 95.3 %.
Tight control of expenses enabled the Group to realize a current operating income of €37.0 million, up 19 %.
Net income amounted to €34.3 million. The portion related to rental activity (€9.0 million) rose 12 % compared to 2013, and doubled compared to 2011 (€4.6 million). Current cash flow before disposals rose 22.5 % to €37.0 million.
At 31 December 2014, the appraisal value of net assets was €1.596 billion, up 12 % or €169 million compared to the end of 2013. The sole revaluation of the Group's assets, performed by BNP Paribas Real Estate, amounted to €118 million. Since 2009, value creation from revaluation of net assets amounts to €410 million. 87% of the assets are in Paris.
At 31 December 2014, EPRA liquidation NAV amounted to €31.83 per share, up 16.8 % over one year. NAV value was established on the basis of a 5.0 % yield for tertiary parisian assets (4.8% for Paris CBD). This growth reflects and validates the strategy of focusing on assets in Paris CBD, as well as the mechanical effect of the reimbursement of annually redeemable loans, the later being a specific aspect of TERREÏS business model.
The two main acquisitions made over 2014 represent €84.5 million in assets in the Paris CBD (41 avenue de Friedland, Paris 8, 43-47 avenue de la Grande-Armée, Paris 16).
Disposals attained €35.4 million (mostly residential assets). They were invariably negociated above expert valuation and represent a net gain of €26.5 million.
At 31 December 2014, net debt stood at €772 million and Loan To Value ratio moved below 50 % down to 48 % (51 % at the end of 2013).
All loans, which are essentially made up of redeemable loans, are at fixed or swapped rates with an average weighted cost of 3.88 % in 2014.
TERREÏS' goal is to substantially increase its Paris commercial property portfolio, focusing on Paris CBD, which represents two thirds of its total assets at the end of December 2014. TERREÏS will continue to seek investment opportunities which come available in the Prime Paris commercial sector, and will pursue to optimize the resale of its residential, regional and Paris area assets in the best conditions. Net proceeds from disposals will be reinvested in tertiary assets within Paris CBD.
The Board of Directors will propose to the General Meeting of Shareholders on 6 May 2015 the distribution of a dividend of €0.70 per share, an increase of 9.4 % compared with last year.
As an interim dividend of €0.34 per share was paid last November, the balance of €0.36 per share will be paid on 14 May 2015.
