Successful financing of DIVE portfolio

(PresseBox) (Hamburg, )
.
- alstria agreed on a new loan of EUR 42.5 m and increases its financial flexibility
- LTV of 47% and 7 year term of the new loan further improve balance sheet quality

alstria office REIT-AG (symbol: AOX, ISIN: DE000A0LD2U1), the leading German office REIT, announces the financing of its DIVE portfolio. The loan is provided by Helaba Landesbank Hessen-Thüringen.

Cash inflow provides financial flexibility

Following the acquisition of six buildings worth EUR 95 m (DIVE portfolio) in early 2012, alstria successfully closed the financing of the transaction. The bullet loan has a term of 7 years, thus improving alstria's average maturity of liabilities from 3.2 to 3.4 years. alstria's intention is to draw down on the loan after it has identified an adequate use of the proceeds.

LTV of 47% further improves balance sheet ratios

In line with its long-term deleveraging strategy alstria further improved its financial structure. The LTV of the new loan amounts to 47% (LTV covenant of 65%) and therefore supports alstria's target to lower its corporate LTV to around 50% in the mid-term.

"The new loan is again testimony to the strength of our balance sheet and the trust of the lenders in alstria's asset management capability, as the maturity of the loan exceeds the remaining lease length of the portfolio", said Olivier Elamine, CEO of alstria. "Our recent positive trend in leasing up the vacant space in the portfolio is clearly supportive in this respect".
