Globally, the results of asset management improved by 3.9% to EUR 54.5 mln, based on a decline in property expenses. Net profit for the reporting period amounted to EUR 21.9 mln.
“Our focus for the operating business in the first quarter included further quality and efficiency improvements, the strengthening of ties with current tenants and the acquisition of new tenants as well as the optimization of our offering,” commented Oliver Schumy, CEO of Immofinanz. “In the retail sector, we have opened three further STOP SHOPs in Poland and Serbia since the beginning of May. These retail parks have roughly 13,500 sqm of rental space in total and are fully occupied,” he added.
