In the first three monthsproperty management revenues are around 7% higher than for the same periodof the previous year at EUR5.8 million. The rise essentially results fromthe new investments that have been carried out. The vacancy rate is 2.3%,or just 1.2% after being adjusted to take into account rental guarantees.In the first quarter HAMBORNER generated an operating profit of aroundEUR2.7 million (previous year: EUR2.4 million). As expected, the overallresult is negatively affected by the exit tax. Upon the achievement of REITstatus as of January 1, 2010 and the associated permanent exemption fromcorporation and trade tax, there is a one-off obligation to determine andpay tax on the undisclosed reserves (final tax assessment). For thisnon-recurring item and the advance tax payment effected at the beginning ofMay, the company's tax liability in the first quarter was EUR16.6 million,which compares with EUR13.8 million for the release of deferred taxes.Overall therefore, the final tax assessment shows an extraordinary negativeeffect on earnings amounting to -EUR2.8 million. When this special effectis taken into consideration, the overall result is-EUR1.4 million, compared to +EUR1.4 million for the same period of theprevious year.With the announcement of three acquisitions in the first quarter of theyear, HAMBORNER was able to continue the course of growth on which it hadalready embarked. Besides an office property in Erlangen, an OBI market inHilden and a high-street property in Kamp-Lintfort were acquired. The threeproperties, all of which are in good locations, have been let over the longterm and offer attractive initial rates of return. The calculated FFO asthe operating result before depreciation and excluding sales revenues isEUR0.14 per share as of March 31, 2010 (previous year: EUR0.11 per share).For the whole of 2010 a further increase in the FFO is planned (previousyear EUR0.42 per share). The NAV is calculated as EUR9.77 per share as ofMarch 31, 2010. The financial situation of the company continues to besound and comfortable. The REIT equity ratio is 63.4% and the loan to value(LTV) 32.4%. HAMBORNER REIT AG therefore remains excellently positioned forfuture value-creating growth.  Key Data as of March 31, 2010
