Moderate decline in rental income

  • Rent (and costs recovered) for the first half of 2011 represented € 10.71 million, which was a decrease of 2.9% on a like-for-like basis (compared to 3.8% as reported). Movements related to changes in group structure accounted for a decline of € 94 thousand and were due to:
    • an increase in rent (and costs recovered) of € 443 thousand, related to the change in the consolidation scope resulting from the contribution to SCPI Interpierre (implemented on 1 July 2010), and
    • the sale of buildings, as confirmed in the press release dated 5 May 2011 (building of the Parmentier private hospital and Rivoli and Roule buildings), which resulted in a reduction of € 537 thousand in  rent (and costs recovered).
    After restatement for these two items, the decline in rent (and costs recovered) was € 324 thousand, primarily due to the review of the rent of the Pantin building (with effect from 1 June 2010).
  • The occupancy rate was 89% at 30 June 2011, unchanged compared to 31 March but down one percentage point compared to the end of 2010; this change was primarily due to the effect of arbitrations and tenants vacating smaller premises in Clichy and Vitry.

 

Management on behalf of third parties: increased momentum for the trend initiated in 2010

  • SCPI

During the first six months of the 2011 financial year, the various SCPIs management by PAREF GESTION collected a total of almost € 35 million (note that excluding the contribution to SCPI Interpierre, for the full 2010 financial year a total of € 31.3 million was collected). The subscription fees of SCPI Novapierre (stores) and Pierre 48 (residential property in Paris and the Paris region) represented € 1.66 million and € 0.45 million, respectively. Furthermore, management fees on current subscriptions grew by 8.3% on a like-for-like basis, owing to strong collections since the second half of 2010.

 

  • OPCIs

The management of OPCIs (Vivapierre, Naos and Polypierre) also generated recurring fees of € 274 thousand, an increase of 14% compared to the 1st half of 2010.
The environment is favourable for the launch of new investment vehicles, in particular in making use of the SIIC regime.

 

New development: Acquisition of Watford

Following the announcement made in its quarterly report dated 5 May 2011, on 7 July 2011 PAREF finalised the full acquisition of Watford Eurl from its own resources.  The purpose of this transaction is to own a building site located in Nanterre (92), which benefits from an 11,000 m2 planning permission, free and clear of any appeal.  This acquisition enables PAREF to give a new impetus to its investment policy, with the planned construction of a HQE/BBC (High Environmental Quality) office building.

 

Shareholders' agenda:
Publication of half year results 9 September 2011 before start of trading and presentation meeting at 11.30am.
