Coreo announces consolidated half-year report (IFRS)
- Net rental income increased by 25% to TEUR 1,934 (previous year TEUR 1,546)
- EBIT TEUR 496 (previous year TEUR -100)
- Corona pandemic without noteworthy consequences
- Positive perspective
Frankfurt am Main, 3. September 2021 – The Coreo (ISIN: DE000A0B9VV6) was able to increase rental income again. The value increased by 25% from TEUR 1,546 to TEUR 1,934 compared to the same period of the previous year. Besides the successful rentals in the Hydra portfolio, the residential units acquired in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia in the course of the first half of 2020 contributed to this for the entire reporting period. At the same time, there were no significant rental losses as a result of the Corona pandemic.
The result from the sale of real estate, at TEUR 310, is slightly below the previous year’s figure of TEUR 492. Regarding the valuation result of TEUR 781 (previous year: EUR 0), however, it must be considered that this is made up of write-ups on sold properties for which the closing had not yet taken place as of the reporting date. For cost reasons, a revaluation of the investment property portfolio during the year was not carried out, as in previous years.
On the one hand, materials costs increased as expected by 59% to TEUR 1,390 (previous year TEUR 875) due to the higher rental volume and investments in real estate holdings, while personnel costs rose by +4% (TEUR 512 compared to TEUR 492 in the previous year) and other operating expenses by -6% (TEUR 737 compared to TEUR 780 in the previous year). The Group reported a significantly improved EBIT of TEUR 496 for the first half of the year compared to the previous year (TEUR -100) due to the higher level of revenues and earnings.
Financial expenses remained almost unchanged at TEUR 1,136 (previous year TEUR 1,119) despite the increase in financial liabilities by TEUR 10,548 to TEUR 62,167. This is due to the more cost-effective refinancing of the warrant bond with a 10% coupon, which was prematurely redeemed at the end of 2020.
As a consequence of the increased income tax component of TEUR 580, the result for the period of TEUR -809 was slightly below the corresponding value of the previous year of TEUR -737. It amounted to EUR -0.05 per share (previous year EUR -0.04).
The balance sheet total grew by TEUR 8,439 to TEUR 93,002 compared to 31 December 2020, largely due to additional loans taken out. In the meantime, the cash, and cash equivalents of TEUR 10,875 available to the Group at the end of June have been used to a large extent for the acquisitions made in July.
The Managing Board anticipates that it will be able to continue to increase the already very high acquisition volume of over EUR 60 million in the current year. Rental income is expected to increase by EUR 1 million compared to 2020 to EUR 4.5 million, an increase of more than 25%.
The complete 2021 half-year report will soon be available for download on the company’s website.
