Sirius Real Estate, the leading operator of branded business parks providing conventional space and flexible workspace in Germany, has completed the sale of its Bremen Hag Business Park for EUR3.8 million and notarised the sale of its Bremen D?tlinger-Strasse Business Park for EUR6.3 million, both in line with book value.



Bremen Hag was a very large site located next to the container port in Bremen Harbour which held limited appeal among prospective tenants, and was loss-making with a net operating expense of around EUR300,000 and occupancy of less than 19%. The sale will therefore also increase overall occupancy of the current portfolio by more than 2.5%, removing 48 000 sqm of vacant space.



Bremen D?tlinger Strasse was notarised for sale on the 23 October 2018 and is expected to complete in March 2019.



These disposals complete the sale of the remaining non-core assets in the portfolio. They take the number of sales by the Company this year to five, the others being another non-core asset in Bremen, a non-income producing piece of land and a vacant residential building, which together will generate proceeds of EUR21.1 million (EUR27.4 million when Bremen D?tlinger completes in March 2019).

Sirius announced that it intends to introduce an additional market quote in Euro (the "Euro Quote") for its existing ordinary shares traded on the London Stock Exchange. This Euro Quote will exist alongside the Company?s existing Sterling market quote on the London Stock Exchange and its Rand quote for shares traded on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.



For the avoidance of doubt, there will be no changes to the legal form or nature of the Company's shares nor to the reporting currency of the Company's financial statements, which will remain in Euros.



The Board believes that the addition of the Euro Quote on the London Stock Exchange will provide an additional option for potential investors, which may broaden the ownership of the Company?s ordinary shares and enhance their liquidity in the secondary market.



The Company has made an application to the London Stock Exchange for admission to trading in Euros on the Premium Segment of its Main Market of 1,009,996,718 shares in issue (including 574,892 held in Treasury). Admission of the Euro Quote is expected to occur with effect from 8am on 10 October 2018.

Sirius announced the notarisation of the sale of its Bremen Hag business park for EUR3.8 million, in line with book value.



The notarisation of Bremen Hag is the second site the Company has sold this year in Bremen, an area which is outside of Sirius?s key focus on Germany?s ?big seven? cities. Bremen Hag is the Group?s last remaining non-core site and is located next to a container port in Bremen Harbour, which has limited its appeal amongst prospective tenants. The asset is unfinanced and is loss-making, with a net operating expense of around EUR300k and occupancy of less than 19%. The sale is likely to complete by October 2018.



The sale will have a positive impact by:

? Generating EUR3.8 million of free cash to be reinvested into new assets with greater potential;

? Increasing occupancy (as at 31 May 2018) by 2.61% due to the reduction of 47 252 sqm of vacant space on the site; and

? Increasing Group profitability by the removal of a loss-making asset.
04-Jun-2018
(C)
Rental income for the year increased to EUR72.1 million (2017: EUR68.8 million). Operating profit grew to EUR99.8 million (2017: EUR86.5 million). Profit attributable to owners of the company rose to EUR81.3 million (2017: EUR66.9 million). In addition, headline earnings per share lowered to EUR3.04 cents per share (2017: EUR3.20 cents per share).



Dividend

The board has declared a final dividend of EUR1.60 cents per share for the six month period ended 31 March 2018 which is an increase of 4.6% on the EUR1.53 cents dividend relating to the same period last year. The total dividend for the year is EUR3.16 cents, an increase of 8.2% on the EUR2.92 cents total dividend for the year ended 31 March 2017.



Outlook

Sirius has completed another active and positive year with high volumes of transactional activity including successfully reinvesting the proceeds from disposals of non-core and mature assets and equity raises into some excellent acquisitions with much greater opportunity in future years. This activity will continue into the new financial year with further disposals of non-core sites and the proceeds from the latest EUR40.0 million equity raise providing the Company with the funds, along with some further bank financing, to acquire over EUR100.0 million of assets. The pipeline for this investment is looking healthy and we look forward to updating shareholders on this in due course.



The Company's operating platform is continuing to produce exceptional results with our best ever year for organic rental income growth and total shareholder return being recorded along with further significant improvements in service charge cost recovery. The capex investment programmes continue to deliver outstanding results and the new acquisitions have added valuable sub-optimal and vacant space to the programmes. All of this means that the Company is achieving the exceptionally high returns it desires at the asset level and the potential for this to continue into the future has been greatly enhanced by the asset recycling programme.



The focus of the Company remains to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns by growing recurring income and capital values through intensive asset management and we look forward to updating shareholders on further progress over the coming year.

Sirius announced the completion of the sale of its Bremen Brinkman business park for EUR15.5 million.



Bremen Brinkman is a non-core site as it is located on the north coast of Germany outside of Sirius?s target regions. The buildings are also uniquely configured for tobacco manufacturing which due to the costs and complexity involved has limited the potential for investment to reconfigure the space. The asset is being sold in line with book value. At time of sale the asset generated net operating income of EUR0.9 million.



As at 31 March 2018 the site contained 48 700 sqm of vacant space which, following completion, results in a positive impact on the Group?s overall occupancy level.



The site is debt-free, so the sale proceeds will be wholly reinvested into new sites in core locations where there is greater value creation potential.

Currently the property is only 3.5% occupied (let to one tenant), producing an annual income of EUR0.1 million with a remaining lease term of 1.7 years. This acquisition provides Sirius with an excellent opportunity to increase the value of the asset through investing into and letting up the vacant space for which the Group?s marketing team has already registered significant tenant interest. The property was acquired for EUR18.1 million including acquisition costs.



Funding for these transactions will come from the proceeds received from the recent disposals of mature assets.

Rental income for the year rose to EUR68.8 million (2016: EUR55.8 million). Operating profit increased to EUR86.5 million (2016: EUR76.4 million) and profit attributable to owners of the company was higher at EUR66.9 million (2016: EUR54.7 million). In addition, headline earnings per share rose to EUR3.20 cents per share (2016: EUR1.87 cents per share).



Dividend

The board has declared a final dividend of EUR1.53c per share representing a 17.7% increase on the same period the previous year.



Company outlook

Sirius has completed another strong financial year with profits again reaching levels not seen before and valuations continuing to rise. Most of this progress is derived from the intensive asset management the company deploys, which focuses on transforming its properties predominantly through its capex investment, lettings and service charge recovery programmes. The focus remains on delivering risk-adjusted returns by growing recurring income and capital values through these asset management activities. The success of this is highlighted by the further increases in like-for-like rents and improvements in service charge recovery seen in the period.



It was pleasing to see a successful start to the asset recycling programme with a number of disposals at well above book value being achieved. The ability to crystallise this value completes the Group's asset management cycle and will allow it to replace mature and non-core assets with assets with much greater opportunity that will fuel further increases to shareholder returns in the future.



All in all it has been a successful year and the foundations for this success to continue have been set. We look forward to the year ahead with optimism.

Sirius announced the completion of the sale of its Rupert Mayer Strasse business park in Munich for EUR85 million to Munich based Fiduciary Capital and the agreement to lease back and manage the asset for six years. Notarisation of this transaction was first announced on 6 January 2017.



Rupert Mayer Strasse business park has approximately 72 000 sqm of office and warehouse space and was acquired by Sirius in 2008. Since then Sirius?s asset management activity has increased net operating income from EUR4.4 million to EUR5.3 million with the value of the asset increasing by 48% from the EUR57.5 million it cost to acquire.



The sale has been structured as a sale and leaseback with a lease of six years and a rent payable by Sirius of c. EUR5.0 million per annum for the first five years and then in the final year at a cost equal to the net operating income of the site. Sirius will continue to receive the net operating income of the site for the term of the lease which is currently at around EUR5.3 million. The leaseback enables Sirius to retain the difference between the rent it pays and the income from the site in addition to an annual management fee of EUR100,000 per year for the term of the lease.

Sirius Real Estate, the leading operator of branded business parks providing conventional space and flex- ible workspace in Germany, announced that it has notarised the sale of its business park in Wiesenstrasse, Dusseldorf for EUR11 million.



The Dusseldorf asset has been fully developed under the Sirius brand and with occupancy now at 96.2% is considered a mature asset within the company?s portfolio. It intended that the proceeds of the sale be recycled into new assets with greater total return opportunity.



Since this site was acquired in 2008, Sirius?s asset management activity has significantly improved the tenant mix and lease terms. The sale price of EUR11 million represents a 25% premium to the site?s book value of EUR8.7 million as at 30 September 2016 and an EPRA net initial yield for the purchaser of 7.2% (including acquisition costs). The purchaser is a German institutional fund.



There is a secured loan of around EUR3.9 million outstanding on the asset. Under the terms of the loan Sirius has the option of substituting other assets into the facility in place of the Dusseldorf asset, which it expects to do.



The sale will add to the company?s cash resources and provide further support for acquisitions whilst maintaining the company?s stated LTV target of 40%. Sirius continues to see a healthy acquisition pipeline of assets on which it can use its asset management skills to drive value for shareholders.

Sirius, a leading operator of branded business parks providing conventional space and flexible workspace in Germany, announced the completion of the acquisition of Krefeld Business Park and an office building in Dreieich for a combined total consideration of EUR7.5 million (including acquisition costs).



In October 2016, the Group notarised the purchase of Krefeld Business Park for a total consideration of EUR2.9 million, representing a 13.1% EPRA net initial yield (equating to EUR457 per sqm of capital value). The property is a single let business park totalling 6,335 square metres of office and warehouse space. Currently the site is producing annualised income of EUR0.4 million and the sole tenant will be conducting a staged exit over the next 14 months creating an opportunity to re-let the site at a higher rate over a longer term.



In November 2016, the Group notarised the purchase of an office building located in Dreieich for a total

consideration of EUR4.6 million. The site contains significant under-utilised and vacant space which represents an excellent development opportunity. It is being acquired on a 0.9% EPRA net initial yield (equating to EUR355 per sqm of capital value).



As previously announced, the company is in the process of moving to the main markets of the London Stock Exchange (?LSE?) and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (?JSE?). Due to the earlier than expected completion of these transactions, the publication of the prospectus will be slightly later than previously announced. This delay is not expected to impact the admission date of 6 March 2017. We will update the market as soon as practicable following the prospectus being published.

Sirius announced the completion of the acquisition of the Wiesbaden business park for EUR17.7 million (including acquisition costs), taking the number of business parks in the Company?s portfolio to 43. The total consideration for the acquisition represents a 9.1% EPRA net initial yield. Currently, the site has 19,602 sqm of gross lettable area of which 65% of this space is occupied with 3 tenants paying a total annual rental income of EUR1.88 million on leases with an average lease length remaining of 2.7 years. Wiesbaden is one of the core cities in the Frankfurt/Rhine-Main regions and the business park offers primarily good quality office space which in particular fits Sirius?s flexible multi-tenanted workspace strategy.



The Company continues to reduce the average cost of its borrowings and is pleased to confirm it has completed a new 7 year EUR70 million banking facility with BerlinHyp with an all-in fixed interest rate of 1.48% for the term of the loan to replace an existing EUR39.3 million facility which was incurring an all-in fixed interest of 2.73%. This has further reduced the Company?s weighted average cost of debt to 2.0%. The extra funds from the increased facility are being used in part to fund the previously announced Dresden acquisition as well as the Wiesbaden property. The interest rate achieved is a record low fixed rate for Sirius and highlights the acquisition yield to interest rate opportunity currently available to the Company. Sirius has a further EUR10 million of equity remaining from the June 2016 equity raise, which it is intending to use to acquire further assets.

The Company is also pleased to announce it will release its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2015 on Monday 23 November 2015.

(Official Notice)
Sirius announced the following trading statement for the six months to 30 September 2015. This has been another active and successful period, during which trading is anticipated to be in line with market expectations. The main highlights of the period include:

* Successful equity private placement of EUR50 million in June 2015 to fund the acquisition of five German business parks for EUR57.24 million and the early refinancing of two debt facilities.

** Four of the five business park acquisitions were completed in September 2015 and the fifth site in Aachen is expected to complete at the end of October 2015. In aggregate the five business parks will contribute EUR5.33 million of annual rental income (EUR4.7 million net operating income), with a net initial yield of 8.1%. The bank facility to be put in place against four of the five assets is progressing well and is expected to be finalised in the middle of October 2015. The new banking terms that have been negotiated will allow the new portfolio to have an initial cash on cash yield of 14.6%, with further room for improvement from vacancy reduction.

** In September 2015 the Company completed a new 7-year EUR59 million debt facility with SEB AG to refinance the two existing and expensive Macquarie debt facilities. The interest on the SEB AG debt facility has been fixed at an all-in interest rate of 1.84% for the full term, which is lower than previously anticipated. This debt facility will reduce the annualised interest cost of the Company by approximately EUR2.6 million.

* Following the completion of Aachen, the owned portfolio will extend to 37 business parks within which there are over 360 individual buildings comprising more than 1.2 million sqm of lettable space. In addition to this the Company also manages two other properties owned by third parties.



As a result of this progress and continued success of the capital investment programme in refurbishing previously unlettable space, the Company?s FFO will significantly increase in the second half of the financial year ending 31 March 2016. The Board looks forward to providing a more detailed report on the Company?s performance and outlook when it announces its half year results for the six months to 30 September 2015 at the end of November.

Sirius confirmed that three of the five mixed-use business parks being acquired (the "Acquisition Portfolio"), as announced on 04 June 2015, have been completed and that the 2 remaining assets, Aachen and Cologne, are notarised and are expected to be completed in October 2015. The completion dates are broadly in line with expectations except Cologne which is now completing 2 months ahead of schedule.



The five assets in the Acquisition Portfolio will be acquired for a total purchase consideration of EUR57.24 million including acquisition costs and in aggregate will contribute EUR5.33 million of annual rental income, providing EUR4.64 million of net operating income after deducting irrecoverable service charge and landlord maintenance costs to the Company. The purchase of the Acquisition Portfolio is anticipated to be partly funded by a 5-year debt facility secured against the Acquisition Portfolio, with an expected margin of 1.25% over EURIBOR. Negotiations on this new debt facility are well advanced.



The Company is also announced that it has agreed a new 7-year EUR59 million debt facility with SEB AG to refinance the two existing Macquarie debt facilities. The interest rate on the SEB AG debt facility has been fixed at 1.84% for the full 7 year term, lower than previously anticipated. This debt facility will reduce the annualised interest cost of the Company by approximately EUR2.6 million.

Sirius released their maiden final results for 31 March 2015. Net rental income was EUR30.312 million. Profit attributable to owners of the company came in at EUR26.985 million, while headline earnings per share was recorded at EUR0.92cps.



Dividend

The board declared a final dividend for the year ended 31 March 2015 of EUR0.84cps, providing the option of receiving scrip in lieu of the dividend.



Outlook

The Company continues to trade in line with expectations, and with the SME market in Germany continuing to improve, we are confident that demand for conventional and flexible workspace will remain strong across our core sites. The capex investment programme, targeting 50% of our vacant space, is now nearing 40% completion and we are already seeing excellent rental returns from the previously unlettable or under-rented areas that have now been transformed. This, together with the recently acquired earnings enhancing sites should impact positively on rental income, earnings and dividends going forward.

Sirius is pleased to confirm that it has completed the acquisition of two multi-let business parks located in Aachen and Bonn for a total consideration of EUR21.8 million, inclusive of acquisition costs.



The Aachen business park is located in the expanding W?rselen district, just west of the Company?s Bonn and Cologne parks and well situated next to the Dutch and Belgian borders. It has a total lettable area of 26,759 sqm and is currently 73% let to a mix of office and light industrial tenants. The Bonn business park, has a total lettable area of 9,810 sqm and is currently 76% let to mix of office, service and retail businesses. These sites generate EUR2.2 million of annualised rental income and EUR1.9 million of net operating income at a combined EPRA Net Initial Yield of 9.02%*.



In both Aachen and Bonn there is significant scope to expand upon the existing tenant base where the Company sees excellent opportunity to invest in the vacant space and generate attractive returns from a mixture of conventional office and industrial space as well as its flexible workspace solutions. Such ?value-add? opportunities are a key element of Sirius?s acquisition criteria.



*Calculated as rental income less non recoverable service charge costs and landlord maintenance, over purchase price plus acquisition costs



The acquisitions were funded by the proceeds from the Company?s recent EUR40 million Private Placement announced on 28 November 2014 and a drawdown of the remaining EUR9.9 million from its new EUR36 million, 5-year debt facility. The monies drawn down have a 2.85% fixed annual interest charge and an initial amortisation rate of 2.00% per annum. Taking account of the financing, the initial cash on cash return is 14.53%.



The Company has now completed the acquisition of the four key sites of the five targeted for a total consideration of EUR71m (including all costs) representing the majority of the EUR76 million acquisition portfolio referred to in our announcement on 28 November 2014. The remaining potential EUR4.5 million acquisition of a business park in Mahlow will not be proceeding and the Company is currently reviewing alternative acquisition opportunities.

Sirius confirmed that it has completed the acquisition of two multi-let business parks located in Mahlsdorf and Potsdam, for a total consideration of EUR48.9 million, inclusive of acquisition costs. The properties have been acquired from Union Investment and represent two of the five sites referred to in the announcement on 28th November 2014.



Located on the outskirts of Berlin, the two business parks have a total lettable area of 67,774 sqm and will mean that the company now has five business parks in the Berlin area, a core market for the company where demand for flexible workspace solutions is high.



Based on the current occupancy of 86%, the two sites generate EUR4.1 million of annualised rental income and EUR3.8 million of net operating income at an EPRA Net Initial Yield of 7.7%* and an initial cash on cash return of 13.3%. When fully mature, the two sites are expected to produce a rent roll in excess of EUR4.5 million per annum. The existing tenant base of 74 tenants provides good security with a weighted average lease length remaining of 3.94 years and the company will now progress its plans to invest in the vacant space to create a mixture of conventional office and industrial space as well as its flexible workspace solutions.



*Calculated as rental income less non recoverable service charge costs and landlord maintenance, over purchase price plus acquisition costs



The acquisitions were funded by a drawdown of EUR26.1 million from its new EUR36 million, 5-year debt facility from one of the company?s existing bankers. The monies drawn down have a 2.85% annual fixed interest charge per annum and amortisation of 2.00%. The balance of the total consideration will come from the proceeds of the company?s recent EUR40 million Private Placement also announced on 28 November 2014. The remainder of the EUR36 million bank facility will be drawn down against further acquisitions, as previously announced, which are expected to complete in January 2015.
