Press release

VIB Vermögen AG with a successful first half of 2023 

  • Gross rental income of EUR 46 million as planned
  • 7 percent increase in funds from operations (FFO) to EUR 37 million
  • Consolidated net income up 80 percent to EUR 63 million
  • Full-year forecast for 2023 confirmed

Neuburg/Danube, August 3, 2023. VIB Vermögen AG, a company specializing in the development, acquisition and portfolio management of commercial properties, can look back on a successful first half of 2023 in the face of a challenging market environment. Despite the sale of 31 retail properties as of March 31, 2023, gross rental income came to EUR 46.4 million and was, thus, almost on a par with the previous year. This performance was underpinned by the acquisition of logistics and light industrial properties in the second half of 2022 as well as ongoing rental indexing for portfolio properties.

“We are pleased with this high stability in the current difficult market environment. This is reflected in our cash flows and the consistently stable vacancy rate of our portfolio. In conjunction with DIC Asset AG, we are able to additionally build on our strength as a leading powerhouse for logistics. Our new Institutional Business segment promises additional and growing income. We want to actively take advantage of the opportunities arising from the market when it recovers in 2024,” explains Dirk Oehme, Speaker of the Board of VIB.

The real estate portfolio under the VIB Group’s umbrella comprises 158 properties as of 30 June 2023, the largest number in the company’s history. Of these, 83 are held in VIB’s in-house portfolio. A total of 75 properties have been held in the newly created Institutional Business segment since the beginning of the year. In this segment, VIB manages properties for external third parties, particularly institutional investors, generating lucrative property management fees for the company.

The sale of the retail property portfolio and the targeted acquisition of logistics properties in the second half of 2022 have additionally reinforced VIB’s focus as the logistics arm of the DIC Asset Group. Logistics and light industrial properties now account for 91 percent of the VIB Group’s total portfolio.

The real estate assets under management in the in-house portfolio were valued at EUR 2.0 billion as of the reporting date, while those attributable to the Institutional Business segment were valued at EUR 1.4 billion. Accordingly, real estate assets of a total of EUR 3.4 billion and a total floor space of 2.3 million square metres are under management, marking a further record in VIB’s history.

Increase in FFO and consolidated net income, vacancy rate still low

Funds from operations (FFO) before taxes and minority interests increased by 6.7% over the same period in the previous year to EUR 37.3 million, translating into FFO per share of EUR 1.13. Consolidated net income came to EUR 63.4 million, up from EUR 35.2 million in the previous year. This increase was also underpinned by gains from the sale of 31 retail properties to a special real estate fund at the beginning of the year.

The vacancy rate was also encouraging, remaining at a low 1.7% despite the challenging economic conditions in Germany. In this respect, VIB will be continuing its proven strategy of managing its property portfolio in-house through its own employees.

Full-year forecast for 2023 confirmed

In an ad-hoc bulletin published on July 7, 2023, VIB announced that it had signed a new loan agreement with DIC Asset AG. The resulting additional interest income will have a significant positive impact on funds from operations (FFO) as the main earnings indicator. This has prompted the Managing Board to raise the forecast published in the annual report for 2022.

VIB confirms the full-year forecast for 2023 adjusted on July 7, 2023 of gross rental income of between EUR 82.0 and 88.0 million (unchanged; 2022: EUR 93.8 million), funds from operations (FFO) in a range of EUR 68.0 to 74.0 million (previously EUR 58.0 to 64.0 million; 2022: EUR 71.2 million) and a vacancy rate as of December 31, 2023 of a percentage in the low single digits (unchanged; December 31, 2022: 1.4%).

VIB Vermögen AG launches open-ended real estate special fund with a volume of EUR 350 million – VIB Group intends to sell a portfolio with a total of 31 portfolio properties

VIB Vermögen AG, Tilly-Park 1, 86633 Neuburg/Donau (Germany), December 20, 2022

VIB Vermögen AG (“VIB”), Neuburg/Donau (ISIN: DE000A2YPDD0), is launching an open-ended special real estate fund VIB Retail Balance I (“Fund“) with a volume of EUR 350 million and an investment focus on food retail properties and specialist retail centers, and today decided to sell seven commercial properties from VIB’s existing portfolio to the Fund. A further 24 commercial properties are to be sold to the fund from the existing portfolio of its subsidiary BBI Bürgerliches Brauhaus Immobilien Aktiengesellschaft (“BBI“).

The fund’s total equity amounts to EUR 202 million. 49% of the fund’s equity is initially provided by VIB itself. The fund will be managed by IntReal Real Estate Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH. The fund is expected to have a term of 10 years, with a target distribution yield of 4.9% p.a.. The real estate portfolio, which VIB will sell to the fund together with BBI, consists of local shopping centers, supermarkets and specialist stores in nine federal states.

The purchase price for the seven commercial properties of VIB will amount to around EUR 119 million and the purchase price for the 24 commercial properties from BBI’s portfolio to around EUR 189 million. The total transaction will lead to a disposal of annualized net rental income of around EUR 18 million from VIB Vermögen AG Group’s (“VIB Group“) (consolidated) income statement; this is offset by an expected income for VIB Group from the transaction of around EUR 65.6 million, of which around EUR 3 million will be received this year and the remainder in 2023. The VIB Group will take over the property management and thus generate ongoing management fees of an estimated EUR 1.2 million per year. With the sale of the properties by VIB Group, the VIB Group’s portfolio will be focused on the asset class logistics and light industry.

The purchase agreement for the sale of the real estate portfolio is to be notarized shortly. The execution of the purchase agreement is subject to the condition precedent of merger control clearance.

VIB Vermögen AG: VIB Vermögen increases gross rental income and doubles profit for the period

DGAP-News: VIB Vermögen AG / Key word(s): Half Year Results
VIB Vermögen AG: VIB Vermögen increases gross rental income and doubles profit for the period
02.08.2022 / 07:30
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

 

Half-year results 2022

VIB Vermögen increases gross rental income and doubles profit for the period

  • Gross rental income grows by 5.2 percent to EUR 46.6 million
  • Adjusted net income from ordinary activities increases by 10.1 percent and reaches EUR 21.7 million
  • Profit for the period increases by 113.4 percent to EUR 35.2 million
  • Outlook for fiscal year 2022 confirmed 

Neuburg/Danube, August 2, 2022 – VIB Vermögen AG, a company specializing in the development, acquisition and portfolio management of commercial properties, was able to further improve its key financial figures in the first half of 2022 despite the challenging market environment. The gross rental income generated in the amount of EUR 46.6 million marks the highest level that has been achieved within a half-year in the company’s almost 30-year history.

This increase of 5.2 percent (previous year period: EUR 44.2 million) is attributable to the additional rental income from the properties added to the portfolio during the reporting period. Annualized net rental amounts to around EUR 92.1 million. At the same time, the vacancy rate at Group level remained at a pleasingly low level of 1.4 percent. As of the balance sheet date on June 30, 2022, VIB Vermögen AG’s portfolio included 106 commercial properties with a leasable area of just under 1.3 million square meters.

Earnings and equity at record levels
Expenses for financing the portfolio were again reduced and amounted to EUR 6.4 million in the first half of 2022 (previous year: EUR 6.8 million). Adjusted for nonrecurring effects, net income from ordinary activities increased by 10.1 percent to EUR 21.7 million (previous year: EUR 19.7 million). Profit for the period increased significantly by 113.4 percent to just under EUR 35.2 million. The main reasons for this significant increase were the rise in net rental income, the successful sale of the share in the joint venture with WDP GmbH, and the improved interest expense.

Equity grew by EUR 35.7 million since year-end 2021 to EUR 635.3 million as of June 30, 2022 (December 31, 2021: EUR 599.6 million). The equity ratio increased to 45.0 percent as of the balance sheet date on June 30, 2022 (December 31, 2021: 42.3 percent).

Value of real estate portfolio increased further
The VIB Group’s real estate portfolio was revalued in the second quarter of 2022. The net asset value (NAV) as the company’s net asset value increased significantly to EUR 1.6 billion as of June 30, 2022 (December 31, 2021: EUR 813.2 million). Based on the 27,710,009 shares outstanding as of June 30, 2022, this corresponds to an undiluted NAV per share of EUR 58.06, compared with EUR 29.35 as of December 31, 2021. LTV (loan-to-value), the ratio of the amount used to finance investment property to its market value, decreased since the beginning of the year to 28.2 percent as of June 30, 2022 (December 31, 2021: 44.5 percent).

Funds from operations (FFO), as an indicator of the company’s operating cash flows, increased by 10.3 percent from EUR 28.5 million to EUR 31.4 million in the first half of the year. Accordingly, FFO per share also improved from EUR 1.03 to EUR 1.13.

During the reporting period, a number of milestones were achieved which will contribute to VIB Vermögen AG’s further growth in future. In January 2022, the extension of a logistics property in Schwäbisch Gmünd was completed and handed over on schedule, increasing the total usable space of the logistics property by 6,100 square meters to 22,500 square meters. In the course of the expansion, the lease contract was also extended to seven years.

In February 2022 the starting signal was given for the marketing of one of the largest development projects of VIB in recent years. The construction of the “NEXT HORIZON” project with a total usable area of around 79,000 square meters is planned on the 215,000 square meters site in Erding. The commercial space is suitable for a wide variety of uses. Three office buildings with a total area of 15,700 square meters are planned, as well as five construction fields with building areas for logistics/light industry-related development of 2,100 to 30,300 square meters . In addition, a parking garage with over 700 parking spaces is planned, which can gradually supply around 50% of the parking spaces with charging capacity and thus fully meet the requirements in terms of electromobility. The properties will be built in accordance with the strict criteria for achieving DGNB Gold sustainability certification. The heat supply via district heating will contribute to this.

Project pipeline grows to a total usable space of around 156,000 square meters
In the first half of the year, a fully developed plot of land in Ingolstadt measuring around 41,000 square meters was also acquired and merged with an adjacent existing plot of land belonging to VIB measuring around 10,000 square meters. A property in the logistics and light industry sector is to be built on the entire site. As a result, the current real estate pipeline continues to grow and includes projects with a total potential floor space of around 156,000 square meters. In addition to its own developments, the company is also continuously examining the possibility of expanding its real estate portfolio through targeted acquisitions.

“I am very pleased to report that we continued our growth trajectory in the second quarter of this year 2022 and are moving forward with several lucrative projects with approximately 156,000 square feet of usable space from our pipeline. The revaluation of our portfolio in the second quarter of 2022 impressively demonstrates the high quality of our buildings and the expertise of our property managers, who create value on a daily basis. In addition, the integration of VIB Vermögen AG into the DIC Asset Group is proceeding smoothly and according to plan, not least thanks to the great commitment of the employees,” said Dirk Oehme, CFO of VIB Vermögen AG.

Forecast for 2022 foresees further growth
The Management Board adheres to the forecast published for fiscal 2022. Provided the economic situation in Germany remains stable, it expects to be able to generate sales of between EUR 103 and 109 million. EBT adjusted for valuation effects and special items is expected to rise to between EUR 67 and 71 million. FFO from operations is expected to increase to between EUR 58 and 62 million in fiscal 2022. With regard to vacancy development, the Management Board expects this to remain in the low single-digit percentage range (December 31, 2021: 1.2 percent). Finally, the average interest rate on the loan portfolio is expected to remain virtually unchanged at the end of 2022 (December 31, 2021: 1.7 percent).

Profile of the VIB Vermögen AG

VIB Vermögen AG is a medium-sized company specializing in the management of commercial real estate portfolios, which has been operating successfully for 25 years. The focus is on properties in the logistics/light industry and retail sectors in the economically strong southern German region. VIB’s shares have been listed on the Munich (m:access) and Frankfurt (Open Market) stock exchanges since 2005.

VIB’s business model is based on a “develop-or-buy-and-hold” strategy: On the one hand, VIB acquires properties that have already been let, and on the other hand, it develops new properties from scratch in order to take them over permanently into its own portfolio and generate rental income from them. In addition, VIB holds interests in companies with real estate assets.
