Société Foncière Lyonnaise (Paris:FLY):
Consolidated revenue by business segment (€000's)
|Q1 2019||Q1 2018|
|o/w||Paris Central Business District||40,416||39,835|
|Total consolidated revenue||48,504||48,025|
First-quarter 2019 consolidated rental income amounted to €48.5 million, up by a slight €0.5 million or 1.0% on the €48.0 million reported for the same period in 2018.
- On a like-for-like basis (excluding all changes in the portfolio affecting period-on-period comparisons), rental income was €1.4 million higher, representing a 3.0% rise attributable to new leases signed in 2018, mainly in the Washington Plaza and Cézanne Saint-Honoré properties, and to index increases.
- Rental income from spaces being redeveloped declined by €1.2 million over the period, mainly reflecting the departure in 2018 of the last tenants from the 83 Marceau building, which is currently being renovated.
During first-quarter 2019, SFL signed leases on nearly 10,000 sq.m. on excellent terms. These agreements, primarily concerning office space in the Louvre Saint-Honoré and 103 Grenelle buildings and in the Edouard VII complex, represented average nominal office rents of €724/sq.m. with effective rents of €662/sq.m.
The physical occupancy rate for revenue-generating buildings remained high, at 97.3% as of 31 March 2019 with no change versus 31 December 2018, and the EPRA vacancy rate remained at a record low of 1.6%.
No properties were purchased or sold during first-quarter 2019.
SFL’s consolidated net debt was down slightly at 31 March 2019, at €1,661 million (compared with €1,688 million at 31 December 2018), representing a loan-to-value (LTV) ratio of 23.7% based on the portfolio’s appraisal value at 31 December 2018.
At 31 March 2019, SFL had €920 million in undrawn committed lines of credit.
