Revenue up 47.5%, in line with the 35% rental income growth target announced for the financial year as a whole
Continuation of the strategy aimed at refocusing
on parisian commercial real estate
- Trading levels in line with the targets set at the beginning of the year
Terreïs' rental income from the first nine months of 2012 amounted to €43.0 million, a 47.5% increase compared with the same period in 2011. This increase was in line with the revenue growth forecasts of at least 35% for year as a whole, i.e. over €57 million in total.
Following the restatement of the acquisitions and disposals made in 2011, the Group's organic growth was 4.8%. The commercial property occupancy rate (excluding the assets located at Rue d'Anjou, which were deliberately acquired with vacant possession) was 95%.

- Refocusing and developing the business activity on commercial property assets in Paris
- Refocusing on offices in Paris
Terreïs has continued to dispose of its regional properties, in order to focus exclusively on Paris and its immediate surroundings. The regional asset disposals currently amount to €24.4 million, and have been agreed at prices above the expert appraisal value.
Furthermore, since the beginning of 2012, Terreïs has signed property disposal agreements relating to residential property worth €33.8 million, of which €30.5 million have been completed to date.
- Development of commercial property in Paris
Buoyed by these disposals and by a financial structure that remains sound, Terreïs is pursuing its targeted acquisition policy, by seizing opportunities in Paris.
In this context, Terreïs has acquired two assets in the Paris Central Business District since the start of the year at a total price of €32 million. One is located at 89 Rue de la Boétie (8th District), with an area of 1,369 m²; the other is located at 103 Rue Réaumur (2nd District) with an area of 3,988 m² excluding the basement.
The yield on the office-retail part of these two assets will be 6.4%.
Terreïs is confirming its outlook for the 2012 financial year, namely:
- rental income growth of over 35%,
- a gradual refocusing of its assets on Paris commercial real estate through the disposal of part of its regional and residential assets.
For information, Terreïs will pay an interim dividend of €0.30 per share on 15 November, and is confirming a higher dividend target for the 2012 financial year than in 2011.
Next event: revenue for the 2012 financial year, on 22 January 2013.
