IMMOFINANZ Group recorded successful operating development and generated sound growth in rental income and earnings in the first quarter of 2024. Rental income rose by 11.5% year-on-year to EUR 143.2 million. After an adjustment for new acquisitions, completions and sales, the like-for-like rental income recorded by IMMOFINANZ (excluding S IMMO) rose by a solid 6.4%.

FFO 1 after tax was 23.5% higher at EUR 69.7 million (Q1 2023: EUR 56.4 million).

“Our start into 2024 was very successful with substantial growth in all relevant indicators and a more than twofold increase in Group net profit. This strong development was supported by the expansion of our portfolio in the previous year to include higher yield retail properties and higher like-for-like rental income that resulted from our asset management. Our strategy has once again proven to be resilient and value-creating in this still challenging environment and we intend to continue this course consequently“, commented Radka Doehring, member of the Executive Board of IMMOFINANZ, on the development of business.

Revaluations (including property development and property sales) totalled EUR -9.9 million, compared with EUR -9.1 million in the first quarter of 2023 and continue to reflect the challenging market environment.
