|Revenue (€ thousands)||Q3 2008 *||30 Sept 2008

|Rent and costs recovered||5,191||15,226||7,862||93.7%|
|Total recurring activities||6,045||17,479||10,750||62.6%|
|IFRS consolidated revenue||6,045||17,859||11,729||52.3%|
|(*)Unaudited 3rd quarter and cumulative revenue at 30 September 2008|
The significant growth in rent and costs recovered was primarily due to the strong increase in the property assets owned by the Company, which has carried out numerous acquisitions since the start of 2007.
The asset occupancy rate has improved by nearly 5 percentage points since 30 June to 94% in October, with in particular the virtually full rental of two vacant buildings in La Courneuve, which should reflect positively on the 4th quarter financial statements.
The value of the Group's property assets was € 215 million at end September 2008 (including SCPI shares and shares of OPCI Vivapierre valued at € 5.9 million and € 6.3 million, respectively), an increase of 10% since the start of the financial year and up 42% over last year.
Management fees from the management on behalf of third parties business totalled € 2.3 million, compared to € 2.9 million. The decline in SCPI subscriptions, due to the investors' caution in the face of unsettled financial markets, was partly offset by the increase in management fees generated by the growing portfolio of assets under management, in particular as regards OPCI Vivapierre.
All in all, recurring activities achieved 63% growth.
Hubert Levy-Lambert, Chairman of the Management Board, declared: “Within this crisis period, PAREF focuses all its efforts on deriving as much value as possible from its property portfolio and improving rental terms and conditions, as well as on the development of the management on behalf of third parties business, with the launch of SPICAV Vivapierre and the preparation of the launch of two other OPCIs. The results already achieved demonstrate our Group's responsiveness and the soundness of its business model, combining secured investments and management on behalf of third parties.”
Detailed information on 3rd quarter operations are presented in the quarterly financial report available on Company Web site.
