INVL Baltic Real Estate Interim unaudited information for 6 months of 2020
For 6 months of 2020, the unaudited consolidated net profit of the INVL Baltic Real Estate group was EUR 0.92 million, revenue was EUR 2.29 million (for 6 months of 2019 consolidated net profit was EUR 1.71 million, revenue was EUR 2.98 million). The unaudited net profit of INVL Baltic Real Estate itself amounted to EUR 1.02 million for 6 months of 2020 and EUR 1.81 million for 6 months of 2019.
The real estate investment company INVL Baltic Real Estate’s consolidated net profit for the first half of this year was EUR 0.92 million, or 46% less than in the same period of 2019. The company’s consolidated equity at the end of June this year was EUR 24.6 million, or EUR 1.87 per share. Equity per share increased 27.4% compared to the end of the first half of 2019 also taking into account dividends that were paid out.
INVL Baltic Real Estate’s consolidated net operating income from its properties in the first half of this year was EUR 1.28 million, or 59.3% more than in the same period last year. The company’s consolidated revenue was EUR 2.29 million, or 23% less than in the first half of 2019. Of that, the consolidated operating income from property holdings decreased 27.4% to EUR 1.7 million.
“Despite the challenges of the first half of the year, we continued to maintain our major properties’ high level of occupancy and stable flow of rental income. Although the company’s revenue and net income figures were impacted by the sale of the IBC Business Centre, completed in March, looking at net operating income we achieved growth. That was due not just to work with clients and the successful start of the Talent Garden Vilnius coworking space, but also to reduced costs compared to the previous year,” says Vytautas Bakšinskas, the real estate fund manager at INVL Asset Management, which manages INVL Baltic Real Estate
In his view, although the coronavirus pandemic negatively influenced the company’s results, the impact was not material – discounts given to tenants whose activities were banned during the quarantine totalled approximately EUR 50,000. Considering the tenant structure of INVL Baltic Real Estate as well as the impact of the coronavirus wave early this year on tenants’ operations and the company’s results, it can be forecast that, barring substantial changes in the second half of the year, this pandemic will not have a significant impact on the company’s results for this year.
