12% rental income growth

Rental income posted growth of 12%, due to higher commercial rent. This increase was due in particular to rent indexing and the properties rented out at end 2008 and early in 2009, namely in La Courneuve, now fully occupied, and Gentilly, which was rented out at the end of May.  The occupancy rate continued to grow over the 1st half-year to 95% at end June, as against 93% in December and 89% a year ago.

The Group's property portfolio remained stable, since no acquisitions or disposals were made in the 1st half-year.  On a like-for-like basis, rental income grew by 10.4%.

New developments in management

Management fees from third parties increased by 8.7% to ¤ 1.5 million, from ¤ 1.4 million in the 1st half-year 2008.  The decrease in SCPI subscription fees over the period was offset by the rise in OPCI fees and the balance of the over-performance fee (¤ 228 thousand) received in relation to transactions carried out on behalf of Westbrook Partners.

After Vivapierre and Polypierre, Paref Gestion received certification in June for a third OPCI governed by simplified rules, Naos, which addresses a group of qualified investors, of which Antenor SAS is the lead investor.  Naos will mainly invest in business premises and shopping centres.

In total, recurring activities reported growth of 11.7% compared with the first half-year 2008.

Hubert Lévy-Lambert, Chairman of the Management Board, declared: "PAREF's double-positioning, combining investments and management on behalf of third parties is confirmed as a sound and quality model.  Within the current market environment, this model enables us to remain innovative, as confirmed by the creation of a third OPCI reserved for qualified investors."

Shareholders' agenda:
Monday 7 September 2009: Publication of half-year results (after close of trading) and presentation meeting at 5.30pm
