Press Release



Luxembourg, 22 May 2019

 



CPI PROPERTY GROUP reports financial results for the first quarter of 2019



CPI PROPERTY GROUP (hereinafter "CPIPG" the "Company" or together with its subsidiaries the "Group"), the largest owner of income-generating real estate in the Czech Republic, Berlin and the CEE region, hereby publishes its financial results for the first quarter of 2019.



"In the first quarter of 2019, CPIPG continued our strong trajectory," said Martin Nemecek, CEO of CPIPG. "Income and profitability are rising, and our capital structure is extremely strong."



Key highlights for the first quarter of 2019, plus recent events, include:



  • Total assets of EUR8.7 billion at the end of Q1, an increase of EUR0.5 billion from the end of 2018, primarily driven by an increase in cash and cash equivalents.

  • Total revenues in Q1 of EUR163 million (up 12% versus Q1 2018), reflecting the combined effects of acquisitions in 2018 and 2019 and 3.2% like-for-like growth in rental income.

  • Group occupancy increased to 94.7% in Q1, versus 94.5% at year-end.

  • Funds from operations increased to EUR50 million for the quarter (up 8% versus Q1 2018).

  • EPRA NAV remained unchanged at EUR4.5 billion.

  • Net Interest Coverage Ratio increased to 7.7x for Q1 2019 (compared to 4.2x for 2018), reflecting the Group's successful refinancing activities during 2017 and 2018.

  • Net Loan to Value (LTV) increased slightly from 36.7% at year-end to 37.4%.

  • Unencumbered assets as a percentage of total assets rose to 67%, versus 65% at the end of 2018.

  • Secured debt was reduced to 32% of total debt, relative to 37% at the end of 2018.

  • Issuance of HKD 450 million (approximately EUR50 million) of senior bonds under the Group's EMTN programme in February 2019.

  • Issuance of USD 350 million (approximately EUR312 million) of senior bonds under the Group's EMTN programme in March 2019.

  • Issuance of senior unsecured Schuldschein (assignable loans) totaling EUR170 million in March 2019.

  • New 3-year unsecured revolving credit facility of EUR510 million signed in March 2019 with 11 regional and international banks.

  • Total available liquidity at the end of Q1 of about EUR1 billion, currently exceeds EUR1.5 billion following the issuance of hybrid bonds in April 2019.

  • The Group's EMTN programme was increased to EUR5 billion in April 2019.

"Once again, our teams delivered excellent results for the Group," said David Greenbaum, CFO of CPIPG. "We remain focused on creating long-term sustainable value for all our stakeholders, and will continue investing in our portfolio throughout 2019."

 



U.S. Litigation



On 10 April 2019, a group of Kingstown companies, Investhold LTD and Verali Limited (together, the Kingstown Plaintiffs) filed a claim in the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York against, among others, CPIPG and Mr Radovan Vitek. The claims brought by the Kingstown Plaintiffs against CPIPG include alleged violations of RICO. CPIPG believes that the claims are without merit, and were designed to create negative press attention for CPIPG and force an undue settlement. CPIPG intends to vigorously contest the claims and has retained an international law firm, Hogan Lovells, with an experienced team of litigators and significant experience in RICO cases. At this time, CPIPG has no further comments on developments in the case, aside from the Group's previously published statements.

* In connection with the adoption of IFRS 15, the Group changed, in respect of service charges, revenue recognition from net to gross, before deduction of cost of services (refer to the annual management report for 2018 for further detail). The presentation of the statement of profit or loss for the three months period of 2018 was adjusted due to the changes in the accounting policy as follows:

 










































  31 March 2018 Effect of IFRS 15 adoption 31 March 2018 Adjusted
Gross rental income 73 - 73
Net service revenue 7 (7) -
Service charge and other income - 28 28
Cost of service and other charges - (21) (21)
Property operating expense (13) - (13)
Net rental income 67 - 67
Total revenues 124 21 145
Total direct business operating expenses (48) (21) (69)
Net business income 76 - 76
 


** To provide reliable and more relevant information, the Group reclassified (firstly as at 31-Dec-2018) the following items, which are no longer presented separately, in the consolidated financial statements:



  • Cost of goods sold related to Development sales and Other business were reclassified to Development operating expenses and Other business operating expenses. Comparative information of EUR 7 million and EUR 1 million as at 31 March 2018 was adjusted accordingly.

*** The Group reclassified effect of changing foreign exchange rates on the revaluation of the investment properties from the Other net financial result to the Net valuation gain or loss. Management finds the adjusted presentation reliable and more relevant, because the effect is already included in determination of the fair value of the relevant investment properties by the Group's subsidiaries.



Comparative information as of 31 March 2018 was adjusted accordingly. The change in the accounting policy had no impact on the statement of financial position, the impact on the statement of comprehensive income is presented in the table below:

 



































  31 March 2018 Effect of the accounting policy change 31 March 2018 Adjusted
Net business income 76 - 76
Net valuation gain (3) (2) (5)
Operating result 54 (2) 52
Other net financial result (6) 2 (4)
Net finance costs (25) 2 (23)
Profit before income tax 29 - 29
Net profit from continuing operations 24 - 24
 


Net rental income



Net rental income increased by 10% to EUR73 million compared to EUR67 million in Q1 2018, driven primarily by an increase in gross rental income reflecting 2018's acquisitions of Futurum Hradec Králové shopping centre (net increase of EUR2 million) and Atrium office complex in Poland (net increase of EUR1.6 million). The better performance of our Berlin portfolio (net increase of EUR2.2 million) contributed to the overall increase in net rental income.

 



Net development income



Development sales in Q1 2019 were represented by sales of apartments in Nice (revenue of EUR11.6 million) and sales of family houses in B?ezin?ves (revenue of EUR3.3 million).

 



Net valuation gain / (loss)



Valuation gain in Q1 2019 relates mainly to an FX gain on our property portfolio.

 



Amortization, depreciation and impairments



The increase in amortization, depreciation and impairments in Q1 2019 was affected by the write-off of goodwill (EUR7 million), which was recognized in 2014 in connection with the acquisition of the Group's agriculture business.

 



Interest expense



Interest expense was EUR12 million in Q1 2019 compared to EUR23 million in Q1 2018. Interest expense dropped due to the substantial change in the Group's financing structure, resulting into a significant decrease in interest expense from bank loans (net decrease of EUR4.7 million) and bonds (net decrease of EUR5.4 million).

 



Other net financial result



Other net financial result in Q1 2019 was adversly affected by foreign exchange losses of EUR14 million.

NAV AND EPRA NAV



Total equity increased from EUR4,362 million as at 31 December 2018 to EUR4,384 million as at 31 March 2019. The main elements impacting equity were:

GLOSSARY

 






























Alternative Performance Measures (APM) Definition Rationale
EPRA NAV Net Asset Value adjusted to include properties and other investment interests at fair value and to exclude certain items not expected to crystallise in a long-term investment property business model. Makes adjustments to IFRS NAV to provide stakeholders with the most relevant information on the fair value of the assets and liabilities within a true real estate investment company with a long-term investment strategy.
Loan-to-Value or Net LTV It is calculated as Net debt divided by fair value of Property Portfolio. Loan-to-value provides a general assessment of financing risk undertaken.
Net ICR It is calculated as Consolidated adjusted EBITDA divided by a sum of interest income as reported and interest expense as reported. This measure is an important indicator of a firm's ability to pay interest and other fixed charges from its operating performance, measured by EBITDA.
Secured debt to total debt It is calculated as a sum of secured bonds and secured financial debts as reported divided by a sum of bonds issued and financial debts as reported. This measure is an important indicator of a firm's financial flexibility and liquidity. Lower levels of secured debt typically also means lower levels of mortgage debt - properties that are free and clear of mortgages are sources of alternative liquidity via the issuance of property-specific mortgage debt, or even sales.
Unencumbered assets to total assets It is calculated as total assets as reported less a sum of encumbered assets as reported divided by total assets as reported. This measure is an important indicator of a commercial real estate firm's liquidity and flexibility. Properties that are free and clear of mortgages are sources of alternative liquidity via the issuance of property-specific mortgage debt, or even sales. The larger the ratio of unencumbered assets to total assets, the more flexibility a company generally has in repaying its unsecured debt at maturity, and the more likely that a higher recovery can be realized in the event of default.
Consolidated adjusted EBITDA Net business income as reported deducted by administrative expenses as reported. This is an important economic indicator showing a business's operating efficiency comparable to other companies, as it is unrelated to the Group's depreciation and amortization policy and capital structure or tax treatment. It is one of the fundamental indicators used by companies to set their key financial and strategic objectives.
Funds from operations or FFO It assumes net income (computed in accordance with IFRS), excludes non-recurring (non-cash) items like gains (or losses) from sales of property and inventory, impact of derivatives revaluation and impairment transactions. Calculation excludes accounting adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Funds from operations provide an indication of core recurring earnings.
Secured consolidated leverage ratio Secured consolidated leverage ratio is a ratio of a sum of secured financial debts and secured bonds to Consolidated adjusted total assets.


Consolidated adjusted total assets is total assets as reported deducted by intangible assets and goodwill as reported.
This measure is an important indicator of a firm's financial flexibility and liquidity. Lower levels of secured debt typically also means lower levels of mortgage debt - properties that are free and clear of mortgages are sources of alternative liquidity via the issuance of property-specific mortgage debt, or even sales.
