Total rental income: €17.6m
Tertiary rental income: + 0.8 %
Financial occupancy rate: 93.1 %
Continuing strategy of relinquishing residential assets in favour of tertiary assets in the Paris CBD
- Total rental income: € 17.6m, 94% of which from tertiary assets (up 0.8%)
Rental income from tertiary business (Offices / Retail) was up 0.8 %, representing 94 % of total rental income. Net growth in assets generated a 4.7 % increase of tertiary rental income compared to the 1st quarter of 2014, offsetting negative effects of:
- Continuing decline of Real Estate indexes (-0.7 %),
- Technical vacancy due to renovations (-1.8 %), mainly on the building located 70 rue St Lazare (Paris 9ème), due to be re-leased from July 1st, 2015.
- With a view to sale in 2015, renegotiation of the 11-15 avenue Lebrun lease in Antony (-0.8 %), in exchange for a guaranteed 9-year occupation.
The active strategy of sale of residential assets explains the slight decline (-1.0 %) of total rental income compared to the 1st quarter of 2014.
|Rental income||1st quarter||Change|
|Offices / Retail||16,511||16,388||+123||+0.8 %|
- Ongoing financial occupancy rate still at high level of 93.1 %
Financial occupancy rate of tertiary assets stood at 93.1 % at 31 March 2015. The 6.9 % vacancy is due to rental vacancy (half) and technical vacancy (half), mainly due to 70, rue Saint Lazare (Paris 9ème).
- Pursual of the sale of residential and regional assets
Over the 1st quarter of 2015, the sale of residential and regional assets amounted to €9.4m. They were negotiated on the basis of 10.9 K€/sq. m. on average, above expertise valuation.
The two Antony buildings (15-17 avenue Lebrun and 42 avenue Aristide Briand) are now rented with a 9-year secured leases, paving the way for an optimum resale from 2015.
Net proceeds from assets will be reinvested in tertiary assets within the Paris CBD.
- Outlook: concentration on tertiary assets within Paris CBD
In 2015, TERREÏS will pursue the sale of part of its residential, regional and Paris area assets, and will reinvest net proceeds in Paris CBD taking advantage of opportunities.
