- Healthy rental income and occupancy rate
Rental income and costs recovered over the period stood at €4.6 million compared with €4.2 million for the first quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 8.8%. Rental income was stable at €2.4 million, with the acquisition of the Léon Frot building offsetting the slight fall in rent on a constant scope basis (down 1.9%). The increase in costs recovered was a result of this acquisition.
The occupancy rate rose to 94% at 31 March 2017, compared with 92.7% at 31 December 2016 (82.6% vs. 81.4%, Gaïa included).
Rental management activity was notable for the establishment of 3 new leases, including 2 for the Levallois building (covering a total surface area of 468m²), which included ground floor retail premises whose extension work was completed over the course of the quarter. Work aimed at optimising the energy performance of the building located in Pantin has been delivered.
With the last conditions precedent being lifted, the sale of the Vaux Le Pénil warehouse building in Avenue Foch should be agreed before the end of May.
- New SCPI fundraising record
For the year to 31 March 2017, management and subscription fees rose by 83.2% to €4.7 million, compared with €2.6 million for the same period in 2016, mainly due to the increase in subscription fees.
Subscription fees totalled €3.5 million (including €2.6 million from Novapierre Germany), compared with €1.6 million for the period to 31 March 2016. These fees were partially repaid to our business finders and partners.
Management fees on property assets stood at €1.2 million as against €0.9 million over the same period of the previous FINANCIAL year, with most of the increase coming from the SCPI Novapierre Germany.
Fundraising by the SCPIs over the quarter grew significantly, reaching €36.3 million (against €16.5 million for the first quarter of 2016), a new historical record.
- Assets managed and held by the Group: €1,508 million at 31 March 2017
Assets managed on behalf of third parties grew 2.5% to €1,361 million in relation to the end of 2016 (€1,328 million), as a result of the growth of the SCPIs Novapierre Germany and Interpierre France. Assets held by the property fund and managed by Paref Group, following elimination of duplication (Paref investments in funds managed by Paref Gestion) totalled €1,508 million at 31 March 2017 (compared with €1,145 million at 31 March 2016), a year-on-year increase of 19%.
