- Rental income
Over the first half of 2016, Parisian Tertiary rental income were €32.8m (€35.4m over the same period of 2015). The €2.6m gap is the combination of an increase by €1m of rental income from strategic assets (Parisian Tertiary) and a €3.6m decrease of non-strategic assets rental income (Residential and non-Parisian Tertiary) reflecting the selling off policy of these assets in line with the annual program.
Over Q2, the impact of the strategy of focusing on Parisian commercial property assets was much stronger: Tertiary Parisian rental income increased by 5.7 % (vs +4.1 % over Q1). They represented 86 % of total rental income, to be compared to 79 % over Q1 2016 and 74 % over the first half of 2015.

Growth of rental income from strategic assets was driven for half by 2015 acquisitions (office buildings located 44 rue Copernic (16e) and 1 Cité Paradis (10e)). Relocation of 70 rue St Lazare (9e), 198bis rue Lafayette (10e), 19 rue Galilée (16e) and 41 avenue de Friedland (8e) more than compensated the vacancy of two office spaces at 50-52 boulevard Haussmann (9e), respectively relocated on April 15 and May 1st.

- EPRA earnings
EPRA earnings stood at €15.1m for the first half of 2016, down 9.6% on H1 2015. Main reasons are planned vacancy on the Residential portfolio and the pursuit of the strategy of refocusing the property assets on Paris CBD.
