La SIIC PAREF, a property company specialised in property investment and management on behalf of third parties, announces quarterly revenue of €6.4 million, an increase of 13% compared with the first quarter of 2014.
|Revenue (€ millions)||First quarter 2015||First quarter 2014||% change||FY 2014|

|Consolidated IFRS revenue||6.4||5.7||13.0%||23.4|
Rental income stability
Rent (and costs recovered) for the first three months of 2015 amounted to €4.05 million, unchanged from the first quarter of 2014. This stability can be explained as follows: acquisitions (up €0.5 million), disposals (down €0.4 million), end of usufruct (down €0.2 million) and new leases (up €0.1 million).
On a constant group structure basis (excluding 2014 sales), rental income increased by €0.1 million.
The occupancy rate at 31 March 2015 was 92.6% excluding Gaïa, compared with 92.9% at the end of December 2014 (82.5% vs. 84.0% in total).
Increase in SCPI subscription fees thanks to Novapierre Germany and Interpierre France
During the first quarter of 2015, management and subscription fees totalled €2.33 million compared with €1.60 million for the same period in 2014, an increase of 45%.
Subscription fees increased thanks to SCPI Novapierre Germany which continued to raise a healthy level of funds (€14 million). Fundraising at Interpierre France also grew to €3 million. Subscription fees totalled €1.57 million (of which €1.18 million for Novapierre Germany), compared with €0.77 million in the first quarter of 2014. Management fees on property assets represented €0.76 million, compared with €0.84 million in the first quarter of 2014.
Assets managed on behalf of third parties grew by 44% to €1,045 million, thanks to the creation of the OPCI “54 Boétie”.
Total assets held by the fund and managed by Paref Group, following elimination of duplication (Paref investments in instruments managed by Paref Gestion) thus totalled €1,175 million.
The first quarter was particularly busy for Paref Group. The Group is also studying acquisition opportunities which should be finalised shortly.
Building on these achievements, the Company will continue to roll out its strategy over the course of the FINANCIAL year, in particular by pursuing its commercialisation of the Le Gaïa building, and on leveraging the success of Property Management to develop the range of SCPIs and OPCIs.
