In 2012/13 IMMOFINANZ Group confirmed the positive operating trend from the past year despite weaker growth in the core markets. Results of operations for the 2012/13 financial year totaled €542.1 million, which represents an increase of 15.3% or €71.9 million.
Rental income rose substantially year-on-year by €70.2 million or 12.0%. Revenues rose by 11.2% to €869.2 million in 2012/13. Results of asset management were 15.1% higher at €513.0 million. Results of property sales rose by an impressive 108.3% year-on-year to €110.8 million. Results of property development amounted to €-18.4 million (2011/12: €30.1 million), above all due to delays in the GOODZONE project in Russia.
“The 2012/13 financial year was characterized by a concentration on the operating business – and we generated more than solid growth rates. Gross cash flow rose by 8.0% to €408.5 million, and sustainable cash flow (FFO) increased by 27.1% to €341.0 million or from €0.27 to €0.33 per share“, commented Eduard Zehetner, CEO of IMMOFINANZ Group. “The decline of €160.4 million in net profit resulted primarily from lower positive effects from property valuation which, after an adjustment for foreign exchange effects, fell by €170.7 million to €37.9 million", added Zehetner.
“Our real estate machine gained significant speed during the past year. This is true, above all, for our sales activities, where we set a new record since the beginning of our sales program with a volume of approx. €661.3 million. With these results, we exceeded our target of €1.5 billion by €153.2 million or 10.2% after three years. This figure does not include properties with a carrying value of €583.4 million that were classified as held for sale on the balance sheet as of April 30, 2013. Many of these transactions have closed or the contract has already been signed.”
