Berlin, 9 November 2017 - TLG IMMOBILIEN AG (ISIN: DE000A12B8Z4) released its report as at 30 September 2017 today. In the first three quarters of the year, the company was able to increase its rental income by 13.5% compared to the same period in the previous year to EUR 117.3 m through active asset management including rental increases, new rental agreements and by successfully placing another property under management. Likewise, the funds from operations (FFO) grew by 19.6% to EUR 70.1 m in the same period (9M/2016: EUR 58.6 m).

As at the reporting date, the EPRA Vacancy Rate of the portfolio was 3.7% and therefore 0.1 percentage points lower than at the end of 2016. Compared to the first half of 2017, the EPRA Vacancy Rate was 0.8 percentage points higher due to the acquisition of the office property "astropark" in Frankfurt/Main (the EPRA Vacancy Rate was 22.6% as at the date of acquisition). The first new rental agreements for this property are expected to be concluded soon. Compared to the start of the year, the weighted average lease term (WALT) in the portfolio decreased moderately by 0.1 percentage points to 6.0 years as at 30 September 2017. Compared to 31 December 2016, the EPRA Net Asset Value (EPRA NAV) has increased by 18.8% to around EUR 1.5 bn. It was therefore EUR 20.00 per share as at the reporting date (31/12/2016: EUR 18.51 per share).

As at the reporting date, the Net LTV of TLG IMMOBILIEN has remained conservative at 37.9% (31/12/2016: 43.4%). The company's average costs of borrowed capital recognised in profit or loss were 2.11%. As at 30 September 2017, the loans of the company still had an average remaining term of 6.1 years due to factors including extensive refinancing measures in the previous quarters.

The portfolio of TLG IMMOBILIEN comprised 364 properties as at 30 September 2017. This represents a decrease of 40 properties compared to the end of 2016, due primarily to disposals of smaller retail properties in the context of active portfolio management and disposals of other properties. Nevertheless, the value of the property portfolio grew by 8.1% in this period. Essentially, the growth was driven by the consistently positive market developments, especially in Berlin, as reflected by rental agreements and in turn valuations, as well as a positive balance between acquisitions and disposals.

After the reporting date, TLG IMMOBILIEN acquired a neighbourhood shopping centre in Rostock and a portfolio of 27 retail properties for EUR 113.8 m in total (see here for details). Furthermore, the takeover offer made to the shareholders of WCM AG was accepted by around 86% of the shareholders, which means that the next steps towards the conclusion of a domination agreement have now been initiated. The takeover of WCM will enable TLG IMMOBILIEN to greatly expand its presence in the economic growth centres in western Germany. This fits in with the growth strategy of the company that has gained momentum since the IPO in 2014.
Peter Finkbeiner, member of the Management Board of TLG IMMOBILIEN, comments on the interim figures: "We view the outstanding operating performance in 2017 so far and the positive development of the key financial figures of the Group as a strong basis for the trust recently placed in us by the shareholders of WCM AG. We will strive to build on the strong growth of our company in the fourth quarter of 2017 and beyond for all of our shareholders and keep TLG IMMOBILIEN on course for profitable growth." In light of the consolidation of WCM AG in the fourth quarter, the Management Board of TLG IMMOBILIEN has revised the FFO forecast for the 2017 financial year upwards to between EUR 95 m and EUR 97 m.
