Deutsche Wohnen: Stable Performance in the financial year 2022
Berlin, March 24, 2023. In a challenging environment for the real estate industry, Deutsche Wohnen SE delivered a stable operating performance in the financial year 2022. The portfolio volume was ca. 9,000 apartments smaller compared to the prior-year period (primarily as a result of the disposal to the City of Berlin). Accounting for this volume effect, Deutsche Wohnen looks back on a stable financial year.
Olaf Weber, CFO of Deutsche Wohnen commented: “Deutsche Wohnen provided a solid performance in a challenging market environment in the financial year 2022. The key metrics are in line with our expectations”.
The segment revenue Rental was €767.1 million (-8.1%), which was particularly driven by a smaller residential portfolio compared to the comparative period of the previous year. The in-place rent per square meter was €7.48 (+3.9%). The vacancy rate remained at a very low level of 1.9%.
Other relevant KPIs also saw a stable development. The Group FFO was €593.6 million, which was at prior-year level. On a per-share basis, the Group FFO came to €1.50, unchanged the prior-year period. The old KPI FFO I was €517.9, which was -6.4% below the prior-year period, but around 6% above the initial prognosis. The NAV (formerly EPRA NTA) declined by 5.6% since year-end 2021 to €20,361.0 million or €51.30 per share. This decline was largely driven by the result from the fair value measurement of investment properties of -€917.5 million. The LTV was nearly constant at 28.1%.
Deutsche Wohnen expects a slight decline of the Adjusted EBITDA Total as well as the Group FFO. Furthermore, an increase in the company value and a small increase in the NAV per share are expected, disregarding any further market related changes in value. A proposal will be made to the Annual General Meeting on June 15, 2023 to distribute a dividend of €0.04 per share for fiscal year 2022.
