HAMBORNER REIT AG - Changes in portfolio at end of first quarter
Duisburg, 5 April 2017 - HAMBORNER REIT AG is reporting further growth in its portfolio as at the end of the first quarter of 2017. Ownership of two large-scale retail properties has been transferred to HAMBORNER - "Market Oberfranken" in Hallstadt/Bamberg and "Kaufland" in Berlin-Marzahn.
The purchase contract for "Market Oberfranken", which has a rental area of around 21,800 square metres, was signed in early February 2017. The purchase price is EUR40.5 million. Taking into account tenant improvements to be implemented of around EUR3.2 million and annual rental income of EUR2.5 million, the gross initial yield is 5.7%. Ownership transferred on 23 March 2017.
The conditions for a fast transfer of possession were also met in the acquisition of the local retail centre in Berlin's Marzahn-Hellersdorf district. The main tenant of the 6,500 square meters property is the food retailer Kaufland. The annual rental income amounted to around EUR0.9 million and the gross initial yield is 5.3%. After signing the purchase agreement at the end of January, the property was transferred to HAMBORNER's portfolio on 31 March 2017.
Besides the two additions to the portfolio, HAMBORNER transferred ownership of the property in Duisburg, which was sold at the end of 2016, to the buyer on 1 April 2017. The retail property on "Kasslerfelder Kreisel" has a rental area of approximately 5,100 square meters and annual rental income of around EUR0.7 million, and had been owned by HAMBORNER since 2009. With a residual book value of around EUR7.2 million, the sale price was around EUR9.5 million.
