Property investment: improvement in rental situation

Rent (and costs recovered) for the first half of 2012 represented ¤ 9.4 million, which was a decrease of 2.3% on a like-for-like basis (compared to a decline of 12.6% as reported). Movements were due to: Sales of buildings in 2011 and 2012, which had a negative impact of ¤ 1 million (Roule, Rivoli, Les Ulis and Parmentier buildings sold in 2011 and Berger building sold in the 1st half of 2012), and Rental renegotiations, which had a ¤ 0.3 million negative impact (particularly affecting the Vaux le Pénil and Croissy Beaubourg buildings), accompanied with extended lease terms. The occupancy rate was 88% at 30 June, stable compared to 31 March. After restatement for properties for which an undertaking to sell has been signed (Fontenay, Gentilly and Rueil Malmaison), this rate was 93%. The property portfolio and its tenant structure continued to improve: 15 new commercial leases were signed by SIIC PAREF and SCPI Interpierre during the 1st half of the year. In that respect, the Bondy and Lognes Campanules buildings now post an occupancy rate of 100%. A new unit has been leased in Cauffry. Lastly, in April, a new lease was renegotiated with Original VD in Croissy-Beaubourg in exchange for a firm commitment of 12 years.

The situation with La Houssaye property, for which an undertaking to sell had previously been signed, has changed. A new 6-year firm lease has been signed with the tenant with effect from 1 September. This new lease relates to the entire surface area of this property (up to this point, the tenant only rented under a tenancy-at-will contract); a purchase option which may be exercised in 2014 has also been granted to the lessee.

Management on behalf of third parties: SCPI fundraising maintained at a high level

Fundraising levels have remained high. During the first 6 months of the 2012 financial year, SCPIs managed by PAREF GESTION (Pierre 48, Novapierre and Interpierre) collected nearly ¤ 28 million, compared to the record ¤ 35 million collected in the 1st half of 2011.

SCPI subscription fees (excluding Interpierre which is consolidated) represented ¤ 1.9 million (compared to ¤ 2.5 million for the same period of 2011). Recurring SCPI management fees grew in excess of 28% to ¤ 1.0 million, due to the growth in managed assets resulting from significant fundraising in 2011 and at the end of 2010.

OPCI management fees (Vivapierre and Naos, excluding Polypierre which is consolidated) totalled ¤ 0.4 million (compared to ¤ 0.3 million at 30 June 2011).
Furthermore, Naos' shareholders have asked to be transferred to a different management company. Pending approval of this new company by the custodian, Paref Gestion continues to manage this OPCI on a provisional basis. Recurring management fees from Naos were ¤ 0.1 million in 2011.

New developments

Management on behalf of third parties

At its last Annual General Meeting, SCPI Capiforce Pierre selected Paref Gestion as its management company to replace its former manager. This new commission will take effect as of 1 January 2013. Paref Gestion thus expands its range of services and intends to develop Capiforce Pierre, which has a market capitalisation of ¤ 50 million, in the best interest of its partners. In the 2011 financial year, SCPI Capiforce Pierre paid recurring management fees of ¤ 0.3 million to its management company.

Investment

The capital increase with retention of the pre-emption right completed on 22 June enabled Paref to raise ¤ 7.5 million in equity.

The funds raised will allow the Paref Group to participate in calls for tenders for the creation and management of OPCIs, both as a management company and as an investor, thus strengthening its competitive advantages, as exemplified by the transaction carried out by Vivapierre.

By generating synergies between its 2 businesses, the Paref Group therefore intends to significantly increase the value of both assets under management and its own investment, while maintaining total consolidated net debt below 50%.

Shareholders' agenda:
Publication of half-year results on 12 September before start of trading, followed by a presentation meeting at 11.30am.
