Societe de la Tour Eiffel : 2012 annual turnover 
PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 02/14/13 -- 

                    Turnover and EPRA occupancy rate stable,
            4.5% increase in rental income on a like for like basis

The  company's consolidated turnover  for 2012 amounted to  EUR 82.4M,
compared to EUR 82.3M  for 2011, of which rents  represented
respectively EUR 69.5M and EUR 69.4M. The  stability of the turnover
has  been achieved despite approximately 110 M of asset sales over
the 2011-2012 period. 
This  rental  outcome  results  from  a  combination  of rents
received on newly
delivered  properties  (+EUR 0.1M),  net 
relettings  (+EUR 0.6M)  and indexation of passing  rents (+EUR
2.4M), set against property  disposals during the said period
(- EUR
3M of rents). 
On a like for like basis, rents increased by 4.5%.

The  relative resilience  of business  activity was  further
demonstrated by the EPRA  occupancy rate performance  of 91.6% for the
 overall portfolio at 31st
December 2012 compared with 91.3% at 31st
December 2011. 
Portolio evolution: 
Disposals  completed in  2012 globally amounted  to EUR  70M in line
with the last prevailing  independent valuations, a  further EUR 40M
being  under contract as at 31st December 2012. 
The net asset value as of 31st December 2012 amounted to EUR 915M to
be compared
with EUR 999M a year ago and EUR 955M in June 2012. The
decline results largely from asset  disposals but  also reduced 
property values  of 2.8% on  a like-for-like basis  (compared  with 
31st December  2011) principally concerning provincial sorting 
centers and business parks. Parisian  office properties values that
are core to the company's activity remain stable. 
Other operational highlights for the 2012 fourth quarter: 
* finalized the refinancing program with the signing of a new 287M,
loan. All the 2013 maturities have been refinanced or

financing cost is extremely 
competitive (below 4%) with an
average duration of more than 5 years;
