* Pursuant to IFRIC 21 standards, the application of which is mandatory as of 1 January 2015, certain taxes (including property taxes and taxes on office premises) are recognised in full as an expense from 1 January. The corresponding estimated rebillable charges have been taken into account at 30 September. In this regard, the 2015 financial data take these standards into account. The 2014 financial statements have been restated for comparison purposes.

Increase in rent and costs recovered

Rent and costs recovered for the first nine months of the year totalled €13.1 million (up 1%), thanks to the increase in commercial rents which offset the end of a residential usufruct. The fully consolidated SCPI Interpierre France contributed €3.5 million to consolidated revenue.

Commercial rental income (business property) grew 6% over the first nine months as a result of the acquisitions made in the first half of 2015 (purchases of the Gentilly office building by Paref and business premises in Seclin by Interpierre France), combined with the full-year effect of the Levallois office building acquired by Paref in April 2014. The overall positive effect on revenue was €1.0 million. Other changes included a €0.5 million loss as a result of disposals and a positive impact of €0.2 million from relocations and miscellaneous items.

Revenue from residential usufruct fell €0.6 million due to the usufruct for the Botzaris building which matured in 2014.

On a constant group structure basis (excluding 2014 and 2015 acquisitions/disposals and the maturing of usufructs), rental income excluding costs increased by 2.3%.

The occupancy rate at 30 September 2015 improved to 94.2% excluding Gaïa, compared with 92.6% at the end of December 2014 (84.6% vs. 84.0% including Gaïa).

 

Increase in SCPI subscription fees due to Novapierre Germany and Interpierre France

During the first nine months of 2015, management and subscription fees totalled €6.6 million compared with €4.8 million for the same period in 2014, an increase of 37.4%.

Subscription fees increased due to SCPI Novapierre Germany which continued to raise a high level of funds (€32.5 million). Fundraising by Interpierre France also grew significantly, reaching €8.7 million. Subscription fees totalled €4.1 million (including €3.1 million from Novapierre Germany), compared with €2.3 million for the period to 30 September 2014. Fees from assets under management remained stable at €2.5 million.

At 30 September 2015, assets managed on behalf of third parties totalled €1,075 million, compared with €725 million at 31 December 2014, due mainly to the creation of the OPCI “54 Boétie”.

Total assets held by the property fund and managed by Paref Group, following elimination of duplication (Paref investments in funds managed by Paref Gestion) totalled €1,214 million.

 

Overall, revenue for the third quarter confirmed the good first-half performance. The Group benefited from its strategy of trading up its property assets and the success of Novapierre Germany.
In the coming months, Paref Group will continue to develop its corporate Fund Management activity, building on the launch of the OPPCI “54 Boétie”, and will seek to capitalise on the successful SCPI management (Novapierre Germany, Atlantique Pierre 1) in order to enhance its product range.

 

Detailed information on operations and the financial position over this period is provided in the accompanying quarterly financial report appended to this press release.

Quarterly business report (1)
Third quarter 2015

5 November 2015

 

 

SIIC PAREF, a property company specialised in property investment and management on behalf of third parties, achieved revenue of €19.7 million over the first nine months of the year, compared with €17.8 million for the year to 30 September 2014, an increase of 10.8%. The third quarter confirmed the healthy level of activity recorded during the first half-year, due to the trading up of property assets (acquisition of the Levallois and Gentilly office buildings) and to the success of Novapierre Germany.

From an accounting perspective, 2015 marked the entry into force of IFRIC 21, and the 2015 financial data takes these standards into account. 2014 data has been restated for comparison purposes.

 

1 - Property assets and Group debt

1.1 Property portfolio

No changes have affected the consolidated property assets since 30 June 2015.

The value of the Group's property portfolio, based on the appraised values of buildings at 30 June 2015, totalled €186 million at the end of September 2015, compared with €175 million at the end of December 2014. This figure includes SCPI and OPCI shares valued at €11 million (based on share prices at 30 September).

The increase in value of the property assets was primarily due to the acquisitions made during the first half of 2015, namely:

  • An office building located in Gentilly and acquired by the SNC Gentilly Verdun, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Paref SA, for €7.3 million;
  • Two lots of premises located in Seclin acquired by the fully-consolidated SCPI Interpierre for €4.4 million.

 

1.2 Financial debt

Total Group financial debt was €77 million at 30 September 2015, compared with €79 million at 30 June 2015. The change corresponds to loan repayments.

Including escrow accounts of €1.2 million and cash and cash equivalents of €10.4 million, the consolidated net financial debt was €65.8 million.

Taking into account Paref's share in the equity accounted company Wep Watford (“Le Gaïa” building), the LTV ratio (net financial debt to property portfolio value) was 40.1%, compared with 41.3% at the start of the year.
The Group complied with its covenants at 30 September 2015. The only covenants applying to the Group as a whole concern the Levallois loan and provide for a maximum consolidated LTV of 55%.

 

2 - Assets under management

Over the first nine months of the 2015 financial year, variable-capital SCPIs managed by PAREF GESTION (Pierre 48, Novapierre 1, Novapierre Germany and Interpierre France), primarily Novapierre Germany, raised €46 million.

The assets managed by the Group at 30 September 2015 are analysed as follows:

* Pursuant to IFRIC 21 standards, the application of which is mandatory as of 1 January 2015, certain taxes (including property taxes and taxes on office premises) are recognised in full as an expense from 1 January. The corresponding estimated rebillable charges have been taken into account at 30 September. The 2015 financial data takes these standards into account and can be compared with the 2014 restated financial statements which also take them into account.
** Rental income and charges, at 30 September 2015, of the SCPI Interpierre represent €3.5 million (€3.7 million at 30 September 2014).

 

3.1 - Rental income stability

Rental income and costs recovered for the year to 30 September 2015 totalled €13.1 million, compared with €13.0 million over the same period of the previous year, representing an increase of €0.1 million. This change was due to:

  • The acquisition of the Levallois, Seclin and Gentilly buildings had a positive impact of €1.0 million;
  • The sale of the La Courneuve, Chennevières and Bagneux buildings and the end of the usufruct for the Botzaris building had a negative impact of €1.2 million;
  • Tenants moving in and out had a positive impact of €0.2 million;
  • Other causes, including in particular rent indexing, the recovery of costs and rent renegotiations, had a positive impact of €0.1 million.

On a constant group structure basis, i.e. excluding acquisitions and disposals, rental income grew by €2.3 million.

The occupancy rate at the end of September was 94.2%, compared with 94.4% at 30 June excluding Gaïa (84.6% vs. 84.9% including Gaïa).

 

3.2 - Management on behalf of third parties: increase in subscription fees

Subscription fees (excluding Interpierre France, a consolidated entity) represented €3.4 million (including €3.1 million from Novapierre Germany), compared with €2.2 million for the same period of 2014.

SCPI fees from assets under management remained stable despite the growth in managed assets (see above) due to the lack of ancillary management fees (disposal and miscellaneous) over the period unlike 2014. OPPCI management fees (Vivapierre and 54 Boétie) totalled €0.4 million.

 

4 - Share capital

At 30 September 2015, the total number of voting rights and shares making up the share capital was broken down as follows:

 Total number of shares comprising the share capital 1,208,703
 Theoretical total number of voting rights (1) 1,901,125
 Actual total number of voting rights (2) 1,882,310

(1) Including the number of shares without voting rights (treasury shares)
(2) Not including the number of shares without voting rights.

 

5 - Outlook

Revenue for the third quarter confirmed the good first half performance. The Group benefited from its strategy of trading up its property assets and the success of Novapierre Germany.

In the coming months, Paref Group will continue to develop its corporate Fund Management activity, building on the launch of the OPPCI “54 Boétie” and will seek to capitalise on the successful SCPI management (Novapierre Germany, Atlantique Pierre 1) to enhance its product range.
