PAREF, a real estate company specialising in property investments and management for third parties, announced first quarter revenue of ¤ 5.9 million, a 77% increase compared to the 1st quarter of 2007.

Revenue (¤ 000) 1st quarter 2008 1st quarter 2007 % change   31 Dec. 2007
Rent and costs recovered 4,855 2,082 133.2% 11,984
residential 750 560 33.9% 2,360
commercial 4,105 1,522 169.7% 9,624
Management fees 667 1,003 (33.5%) 4,324
Total recurring activities 5,522 3,085 79.0% 16,308
Property dealing 380 250 52.0% 980
Consolidated revenue IFRS 5, 902 3,335 77.0% 17,288

The very high growth in rent, arising above all from commercial properties, results mainly from the strong growth in the company's assets due to numerous acquisitions in the recent period.
The property assets of the company thus amount to ¤ 214.8 million (including share in SCPIs of ¤ 5.5 million).  The value of properties held by the Group grew by 10% since the start of the year and by 165% since 1 January 2007.

Management fees from third parties amounted to ¤ 0.7 million compared to ¤ 1.0 million.  Subscription commissions were the cause of this decline which is due to an unfavourable base and difficult market conditions in the 1st quarter for raising capital.

Despite this factor, recurring activities grew in total by 79%.
Hubert Levy-Lambert, Chairman of the Management Board, stated: "This quarter again demonstrates the good performance achieved by the Paref Group.  These factors strengthen our confidence in the quality and soundness of our business model combining secured investment and management for third parties."

Detailed information on the operations and financial position for the period is presented in the quarterly financial report attached to this press release.
