- Refocusing of activity on Parisian commercial property assets
TERREÏS intends to dispose of its provincial property to exclusively focus on Paris and its immediate surroundings. These provincial property disposals stand at €2.4m (for an expert value of €2.3m) at 30 June 2012, of which €0.6m were completed.
Furthermore, since the beginning of 2012, TERREÏS has signed property disposal agreements relating to residential property for €30.4m, of which €14.7m were completed at 30 June 2012.
Thanks to these disposals and a financial structure that remains solid, TERREÏS is continuing with its targeted acquisitions policy, by seizing opportunities in Paris and the surrounding region.
In this respect, TERREÏS signed a sale commitment for the acquisition of offices at 89 Rue de la Boétie in the 8th arrondissement in Paris, for a total of €8.6m, expressing a return of 6.8%.
- Confirmation of prospects
TERREÏS confirms its prospects for the 2012 financial year, namely growth in rental income of over 35% and the gradual refocusing of its property assets on Parisian commercial real estate.
In the second half 2012, TERREÏS should pursue the disposal of a proportion of its provincial property.
In addition, residential property disposals should reach €33m in complete transactions by the end of the year.
In terms of its acquisition policy, TERREÏS remains on the lookout for opportunities in Paris and foresees more significant transactions in the second half-year. Low rate levels maintain an attractive risk premium over the Paris market.
