In the third quarter of 2018, gross rental income improved by 5.1% thanks to
both a like-for-like increase of 2.7% (due notably to the good performance of
retail in Bordeaux) and a perimeter impact (net impact of recent acquisitions
and disposals) of +2.4%, primarily linked to the lease signed for the property
Gross rental income for the first nine months of the year saw an increase of
+0.9% (-0.9% like for like).
In the third quarter, Affine recorded 9 new leases for a total area of 3,510
sqm and total annual rent of EUR0.4m. Furthermore, 11 tenants left their
premises, representing a total surface area of 8,470 sqm and annual rents of
EUR1.2m. Finally, six leases were renegotiated, representing a total rental
amount of EUR0.4m (impact on an annual basis: -EUR0.1m).
Lease cancellations over the quarter will have an impact of -EUR0.5m in 2019,
which will be more than offset by the new rents from future leases (Nantes
"Kibori", Kremlin Bicêtre, etc.) amounting to EUR0.9m in the same period.
There were no acquisitions or disposals during the quarter.
At the end of September, the volume of investments carried out in the last 12
months is EUR102m, the amount of turnkey projects and developments accounted to
date is EUR11m, and projects committed or controlled amount to EUR53m. Overall,
this will generate an annual rental income in the longer term of EUR11.1m,
corresponding to a potential rental income of EUR6.6m on an annual basis for
leased properties or new-built commissioned (of which EUR3.2m is already
recognised in the accounts for the first nine months of 2018) and EUR4.5m for
developments under construction.
3) FINANCIAL SITUATION
The financial structure has not significantly changed compared with 30 June
There was no financing or refinancing during the quarter.
With the imminent sale of Banimmo, Affine pursues its strategy of renewing and
streamlining the portfolio, alone or in partnership, with development divided
equally between Metropolitan Paris and six main regional urban areas (Bordeaux,
Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes and Toulouse). Since 2015, the target cities as
a proportion of total assets have thus increased from 52% to 84%. This strategy
should allow Affine to maintain its distribution strategy.
Finally, at this stage, the works pertaining to the Affine merger/absorption
project by the Société de la Tour Eiffel are continuing and the schedule
remains unchanged (see press release of 28 September 2018).
