Deutsche EuroShop: Half-year results for 2019 stable and on track

  • Revenue: EUR111.9 million (+0.3%)
  • EBIT: EUR98.2 million (+0.2%)
  • Consolidated profit: EUR66.2 million (+19.8%)
  • EPRA earnings per share: EUR1.37 per share (+15.1%)
  • FFO: EUR75.0 million (-0.7%)

Hamburg, 15 August 2019 - Shopping center investor Deutsche EuroShop can look back on a stable first half of its 2019 financial year. Revenue was up slightly by 0.3% to EUR111.9 million on the prior-year period, net operating income (NOI) was nearly unchanged at EUR100.4 million, and earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) improved by 0.2% to EUR98.2 million.

Including the positive non-recurring effects from tax refunds for previous years of the first quarter of 2019, which the management of Deutsche EuroShop expects in connection with a current ruling by the Grand Senate of the Federal Finance Court (BFH), earnings before taxes (EBT) excluding valuation rose by 3.8% to EUR81.9 million in the first half of the year (excluding non-recurring effects +0.4%). For this reason, consolidated profit also increased significantly by 19.8% to EUR66.2 million (excluding non-recurring effects +2.2%); EPRA earnings rose by 14.5% to EUR 84.3 million (excluding non-recurring effects +1.3%). Funds from operations (FFO) adjusted for valuation and non-recurring effects were slightly lower than the first half of the previous year at EUR75.0 million (-0.7%) due to higher tax payments. This represents FFO per share of EUR1.21.

The Deutsche EuroShop management team is sticking to its guidance for financial year 2019 and aims to pay a dividend of EUR1.55 per share for the financial year. The expectation is that the dividend will increase by a further EUR0.05 for 2020.

Fonds Research 2019: Dt. Mittelstandsanleihen FONDS bietet attraktive Anlagemöglichkeit

Auch 2019 hat die GBC AG unter der Vielzahl an Publikumsfonds neun „Fonds Champions“ herausgefiltert. Darunter den Deutsche Mittelstandsanleihen FONDS (ISIN: LU0974225590), der eine qualitätsorientierte Strategie verfolgt und eine vielversprechende Anlagemöglichkeit in den deutschen Mittelstand bietet. Insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund des aktuellen Niedrigzinsniveaus sehen wir den Fonds als gute Chance, um attraktive Renditen zu erwirtschaften und dies verbunden mit einer traditionell niedrigen Fonds-Volatilität. Wir vergeben 5 von 5 GBC-Falken ein.
