Press Release


Result for the first quarter of 2022

  • Revenues at EUR 45.9 million and funds from operations (FFO) at EUR 27.5 million 
  • EPRA NTA at EUR 19.09 per share 
  • New three years EUR 200 million Revolving Credit Facility (RCF)

Hamburg, May 2, 2022 – alstria office REIT-AG (symbol: AOX, ISIN: DE000A0LD2U1) (“alstria”) announces its result for the first three months of 2022.

Revenues of EUR 45.9 million and FFO at EUR 27.5 million 
alstria’s revenues developed as planned in the reporting period and reached EUR 45.9 million in the first quarter of 2022 (3M 2021: EUR 44.7 million). The increase by 2.8% is mainly due to the net impact of transactions that took place in 2021. 

The operating result (FFO after minorities) was EUR 27.5 million in the reporting period (3M 2021: EUR 29.4 million). The higher rental income was offset by higher real estate operating costs driven by increased activity on the assets. Consolidated net income for the period under review amounted to EUR 20.7 million (3M 2021: EUR 26.2 million). 

EPRA NTA up to EUR 19.09 per share
The fair value of investment property amounted to EUR 4,767 million as of March 31, 2022, compared to EUR 4,776 million as of December 31, 2021. The slight decrease resulted from a property in Düsseldorf being sold. As of March 31, 2022, alstria’s cash and cash equivalents amounted to EUR 378 million (December 31, 2021: EUR 314 million). 

Within the first three months of 2022, alstria’s equity increased by 0.6% to EUR 3,388 million, reflecting the positive profit contribution in the first quarter of 2022. Accordingly, the company’s EPRA NTA improved to EUR 19.09 per share. The G-REIT equity ratio amounted to 70.4% and the Company’s Net LTV stood at 27.7% as per March 31, 2022. 

Increased letting results 
alstria letting performance improved from 16,900 sqm in Q1 2021 to 34,100 sqm in the reporting period. This represents signed new leases for 11,600 sqm, as well as lease extensions of around 22,500 sqm. The EPRA vacancy rate stood at 7.7% (December 31, 2021: 6.9%). The improvement of the leasing performance partially reflects the improved sentiment in the letting market in the first quarter of 2022 following the reduced perceived uncertainty around the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Intention to adjust the capital structure – New revolving credit facility
Following the review of the Company’s capital structure, alstria’s management board intends to take up debt in the amount of presumably up to EUR 850 million. The Company intends to operate with a leverage meeting the minimum criteria consistent with an investment-grade rating resulting in a company leverage of around 50% LTV. The additional debt may occur through the issuance of secured or unsecured debt instruments, such as for example corporate bonds and/or through bank financing.

The expected proceeds shall be used to return approx. EUR 1 billion of capital to the shareholders in the form of a share buyback in accordance with the existing authorization or – subject to a decision by a General Meeting of the Company – in the form of a special dividend payment. 

alstria has recently signed a new three years Revolving Credit Facility (RCF) in the amount of EUR 200 million to improve its already strong liquidity position.

Full-year guidance confirmed
Based on the results of the first quarter, alstria confirms its guidance for the full year 2022 with expected revenues of around EUR 183 million and an operating profit (FFO) of EUR 106 million. 

„While the impact of the Covid pandemic is slowly normalizing and positively impacting letting markets, other major macro-events have increased overall uncertainty in the market,” says Olivier Elamine, CEO of alstria. “The economic impact of the war in Ukraine is being felt across industries with German CPI increasing dramatically. Our portfolio of CPI linked income combined with strong real assets, and hands-on management offer a solid basis that will allow the company to safely navigate the current environment.”
