Investment summary

2017 is a year of implementation for Demire’s (DEMIRE 2.0) strategic plan, which targets significant reductions in financing cost, efficiency improvements and scale economies from additional portfolio growth. Over the medium term, it looks to double the portfolio value to c €2bn while reducing LTV to c 50% (H117: 62.5%). The placement of rated, unsecured five-year 2.875% debt is a significant step forward in extending debt maturity and reducing debt cost (with the first significant impacts seen in 2018) . €270m was issued in July and a further €130m in September with the proceeds directed at refinancing expensive shorter maturity debt, as well as general corporate purposes including property acquisition. H1 FFO1 (after tax, before minorities), a measure of cash earnings, was €4.9m (H116: €5.6m) and diluted EPRA NAV/share was €4.81. Guidance of €8-10m FFO1 and rental income of €72-73m was maintained.

Industry outlook

The geographical diversity and strength of the German economy make for dynamic property markets outside the seven biggest cities. Secondary cities are characterised by low-vacancy, low-rent volatility and have attracted less investment in new stock in recent years, providing support for rents and opportunities for investors.
