1,350 residential units to be sold to CBRE Investment Management for a total of ca. EUR 560m

Bochum, May 4, 2023 – Vonovia and CBRE Investment Management have reached an agreement on the disposal of five assets with 1,350 apartments located in Berlin, Munich, and Frankfurt. Three of these assets are recently completed new constructions that are operated within the rental segment. The other two are still under construction with completion expected in Q2 and Q3 this year.

At ca. EUR 6,000 per sqm the average fair value is more than twice as high as the Vonovia average, and the rent level of ca. EUR 19.50 per sqm compares to ca. EUR 7.50 for Vonovia’s portfolio. Both numbers underline the extraordinary quality of the disposal assets. The gross yield on the sold portfolio is just under 4% and closely in line with Vonovia’s average.

Vonovia CEO Rolf Buch commented: “Following the Südewo transaction last week this is another good step for us towards achieving our disposal targets for this year. We are excited to be able to demonstrate that disposals at attractive yields are possible even in this still somewhat challenging transaction environment, and we consider it a positive signal for the market as a whole.”

The book value of the sold assets as of Dec. 31, 2022, plus the estimated costs to completion for the not-yet finished assets amounts to ca. EUR 600m, and the parties have agreed on a total purchase price of ca. EUR 560m. Vonovia expects a cash inflow after tax and transaction costs of EUR 535m, representing a cash conversion of 89%.

Owing to different closing dates, staggered payments have been agreed with the last installment scheduled for December 2023.

Vonovia was advised by Dentons (Legal), E&Y (Tax and Financial) as well as Lübke Kelber and Cushman & Wakefield.
