UBM Development AG: Second strongest half-year and optimistic outlook

Wien (pta006/25.08.2021/07:00) - -
- No corona dip in 2021
- EBT of EUR 55m to EUR 60m in 2021 - guidance possible again
- Record pipeline of EUR 2.4 bn after acquisitions in Munich

UBM Development has delivered the second strongest half-year results in its nearly 150-year history despite corona. The sound first half-year results and sales activity expected over the coming months make it possible for UBM to issue a guidance for the 2021 financial year: "Instead of the previously announced "corona dip", we now expect an EBT of EUR 55m to EUR 60m" says UBM CEO Thomas G. Winkler "and with the sale of several projects prior to the start of construction, we successfully steered through these challenging times." EBT for the first half of 2021 totalled EUR 35.7m.

Acquisitions lead to record pipeline
The company restarted the acquisition engine during the first half of 2021 with two transactions in Munich. The purchase of the corporate headquarters for the luxury sport fashion producer Willy Bogner and a 6,500 sqm parcel of land directly adjoining the Olympia Park underground station refilled the project pipeline, which now totals a record high of EUR 2.4 bn. It currently consists of 51% residential projects and 37% office projects, whereby more than half have been transformed into green building and smart office in the shortest possible time. Over 80% of these projects are located in the popular real estate markets in Germany and Austria.

ESG pioneer on the capital market
The months of May and June brought numerous activities in the interest of bond investors. The strategic re-orientation to green. smart. and more. in combination with the top ESG rating ("Prime Status") for a real estate business in Germany and Austria allowed the company to raise EUR 250m on the capital market. UBM's pioneering work involved the issue of the first sustainability-linked bond by an Austrian company for the retail market as well as the placement of the first sustainability-linked hybrid bond.

Cash and cash equivalents totalled EUR 407.0m as of 30 June 2021, a substantial improvement over year-end 2020 (EUR 247.2m). The equity ratio equalled 34.5% and remained at the upper end of the target range of 30 to 35%. Net debt declined to EUR 449.5m at the end of June 2021.

In addition to the EBT guidance of EUR 55 to EUR 60m - which exceeds the consensus by 30% -UBM expects greater demand for its services in the future: The growth drivers will be based, among others, on the fact that a significant part of the pre-corona office space will require completely new development concepts after the current leases expire and before they can be used again. Concepts must also be created to address the radical ESG orientation of real estate investors and the sharply rising raw material and construction costs. Real estate remains a seller's market where it is becoming increasingly important to secure access to projects in the development phase. This outlook continues to depend on the further positive development of the pandemic.
