News

DEFAMA promised to publish the audited figures and the 2020 annual report at the end of April 2021.

According to preliminary and unaudited figures, Deutsche Fachmarkt AG (DEFAMA) achieved a consolidated net income of € 2.5 (2.1) million or € 2.5 (2.1) million in the 2020 financial year with sales of € 14.8 (previous year: 11.2) million . Earned € 0.57 (0.51) per share. This corresponds to an increase of 21%. Funds From Operations (FFO) were € 5.8 (4.6) million or € 1.32 (1.14) per share, an increase of 26%.

DEFAMA has thus achieved the forecasts in the Corona year or even slightly exceeded them for FFO as a central control parameter, although the Management Board has made precautionary value adjustments in the low six-digit range on outstanding payments from tenants that are affected by the lockdown. The management board and the supervisory board want to propose to the general meeting that a dividend be increased from 45 to 48 cents per share.

For the current year DEFAMA is still aiming for an increase in FFO to around € 7.1 million or € 1.61 per share. The annualized FFO of the portfolio should reach at least € 8.0 million by the end of the year. The target figure for the annual surplus is € 3.1 million, which corresponds to € 0.69 per share. According to the communicated distribution policy, the company intends to raise the dividend again for 2021.

DEFAMA currently has a portfolio of 43 retail parks with a total of 179,000 sqm of usable space, more than 96% of which are let. The annualized annual net rent amounts to a good € 14 million. The largest tenants include ALDI, EDEKA, LIDL, Netto, NORMA, Penny, REWE, Getränke Hoffmann, Dänisches Bettenlager, Deichmann, Takko and toom.
