Die HAMBORNER REIT AG is also able to report good progress in its operating result for the 3rd quarter of 2010. The total management earnings were EUR 18.3 million in the first nine months of the year, representing a 9% increase on the figures for the previous year.

The increase was primarily thanks to new investments that were made. As of the end of September the vacancy rate is 2.3%, hence 1.4% down on the comparable figure for the previous year (3.7%). When the figure is adjusted to account for rent guarantees it is only 1.2%. In the first nine month HAMBORNER secured an operating result (FFO) of around EUR 9.5 million, an increase of 20.0% on the previous year (EUR 8.0 million). An increase of 15-20% on the previous year's figures is also estimated for the year 2010 as a whole, which is better than previous expectations.

With the assumption of REIT status as of 01.01.2010 and the resulting permanent exemption from corporation tax and local trade tax, the hidden reserves had to be calculated and tax paid on them (exit tax). This resulted in a one-time special effect in the 1st quarter of 2010 which had a negative impact of EUR 2.8 million on the result. However, this had already been absorbed by the 1st half year of 2010 and this led to a balanced result on 30.06.2010. As of 30.09.2010 the result for the period was EUR 2.5 million (EUR 4.4 million in the previous year).

Regarding investments HAMBORNER continued its successful acquisition course. Following the acquisition and transfer of office property in Erlangen, an OBI supermarket in Hilden, a high street building in Kamp-Lintfort and an EDEKA center in Stuttgart by the middle of the year, another office property was acquired in Ingolstadt in the 3rd quarter. The investment volume as of 30.09.2010 is hence EUR 61.8 million. In the 3rd quarter two retail properties in Lemgo and Bad Homburg were officially recorded. With these investments HAMBORNER is successfully implementing its strategy of profit-oriented growth particularly in Southern Germany.

Further interesting properties are currently being examined. The net issue proceeds of around EUR 76 million from the successfully placed increase in capital in October also laid the foundation stone for further growth and continued increase in the FFO.

As of 30.09.2010 the NAV was EUR 9.64 per share. The financial situation of the company continues to be extremely stable and positive. The REIT capital ratio is 54.2 % and the Loan to Value (LTV) is 42.1%. HAMBORNER REIT AG is hence perfectly positioned for future value-creating growth.
