Increase in TTL's consolidated net profit confirms repositioning
TTL Beteiligungs- und Grundbesitz-AG ("TTL AG", "TTL") (ISIN DE0007501009) today published its annual report for the year 2019. The holding company, which focuses on the German commercial real estate market, increased its profitability again in 2019 and confirms the preliminary figures already published.
The company's consolidated net income for 2019 rose from EUR 4.1 million to EUR 4.8 million, which represents an increase of 16 percent over the previous year. "The results published today show that we have successfully initiated the repositioning of TTL AG in 2019. The expansion of our investment focus has given us new scope for action, which we have been able to use successfully", says Theo Reichert, CEO of TTL AG.
With an investment portfolio of EUR 88.6 million (previous year EUR 99.4 million), the company's income from investments including silent partnerships improved by around 7 percent in 2019 to EUR 7.7 million (previous year EUR 7.2 million). This was primarily due to the direct investment in DIC Asset AG, which was successively built up via our 50 %- affiliated company TTL Real Estate GmbH. As at 31 December 2019, the stake in DIC Asset AG amounted to almost 5 percent and was increased to a total of 7.1 percent in January 2020. The aim is still to achieve an intercompany participation ("Schachtelbeteiligung") of at least 10 percent.
TTL AG's equity attributable to shareholders rose to around EUR 47.7 million in 2019 (previous year: EUR 46.8 million), while earnings per share increased by approximately 15 percent to EUR 0.22 per share in the same period.
The dividend payment of EUR 0.20 per share proposed by the Executive Board for the 2019 business year represents an increase of 66 percent compared to the dividend of EUR 0.12 per share resolved in May of the previous year and a payout ratio of the consolidated net profit of around 90 percent.
For 2020, TTL AG expects a consolidated net income of at least EUR 4.8 million at the level of the past fiscal year and intends to expand the business in all segments through targeted investments.
