Total rental income: €15.9m, up 1% on a like-for-like basis
Rental income from Parisian office properties up 11.5%, now representing 92% of total rental income
Renewed improvement of EPRA vacancy rate: 3.3% vs 4.4% at the end of 2016
- Rental income from Parisian office assets exceeds 90% of total rental income
Over the 1st quarter 2017, rental income from Parisian office assets grew by 11.5% (+6% on a lfl basis). The increase is mainly due to the improvement of EPRA vacancy rate (excluding buildings under restructuring) down to 3.3 % compared to 4.4 % at the end of 2016. Financial occupancy rate was 96.7 % at March 31, 2017.
Around 1,500 sq.m. of offices were re-rented in the Paris CBD avenue de Friedland, avenue George V and rue de la Boétie. Remaining vacancy was mainly due to refurbishing works ahead of relocation on office buildings rue Marbeuf, rue de la Paix and rue de la Boétie.
Together with the acceleration of non-strategic assets disposals, this significant increase in Parisian office buildings rental income leads them to now represent 92 % of total rental income, to be compared to 79% on 1st quarter 2016 and 85 % on the whole 2016 year.

- Ongoing non-strategic assets disposals generating a decrease in dedicated rental income
Rental income from non-strategic assets (office buildings out of Paris and Residential as tenants leave) was significantly down by 65 % at €1.2m as a result of the active selling off policy of these assets with, in particular, the disposal of office buildings in Antony (sold in January 2017) and Issy les Moulineaux (sold in 2016).
The main office asset to be sold is a 13,000 sq.m. office building named « Le Saint Raphaël » in Ivry-sur-Seine, vacant since February 2016. Relocation or conversion into hotel residence are under study.
Disposal is planned for 2018/2020.
