3. Major events
a. Tenant sales
Q1-2013 saw a deterioration in the macro-economic environment in Europe
characterized by the impact of austerity measures, rising unemployment and low
Whereas tenant sales in Unibail-Rodamco's shopping centres^(2) contracted by
-1.8% in the first three months of 2013 compared to Q1-2012, the decrease was
limited to -0.9% for large shopping centres (more than 6 million visits per
annum) which represent the core of the Group's strategy. Tenant sales in the
Group's shopping centres continued to outperform national sales indices^(3),
with a spread of +250 bps through February 2013.
In addition to the unfavourable economic climate, tenant sales were negatively
impacted by a reduced number of shopping days (no February 29 in 2013, Easter
in April in 2012) and the exceptionally cold weather throughout Europe
affecting fashion sales.
b. Gross Rental Income^(1) as of March 31, 2013
Gross Rental Income (GRI) of the shopping centre division amounted to €288.3
Mn for the first three months of 2013, an increase of +6.0% compared to the
same period in 2012. The growth is driven by the Group's leasing activity,
shopping centre deliveries (notably Confluence, El Faro and So Ouest in 2012)
and acquisitions net of disposals completed by the Group.
In the office sector, the GRI decreased by -5.1% compared to 2012 to €42.6 Mn
due to divestments completed in 2012 and assets under renovation.
GRI of the Convention Exhibition and Hotels sector decreased by -9.6% to €52.8
Mn due to the traditional seasonal nature of the activity.
c. Other events
Unibail-Rodamco successfully opened on March 21, 2013 the extension of
shopping centre Centrum Cerny Most in Prague, Czech Republic. The fully
renovated and extended 81,340 m² GLA mall saw its footfall increase by +63% in
the first month following the extension opening, compared to the same period
On February 18, 2013, the Group successfully placed a €750 Mn bond maturing in
February 2021. The 8-year bond offers a fixed coupon of 2.375%. With an order
book reaching over €1.9 Bn, the placement was 2.5 times oversubscribed. Net
proceeds of this bond were used for general corporate purposes.
Despite the challenging economic environment, in light of the Group's strong
fundamentals, Unibail-Rodamco confirms its confidence in achieving recurring
earnings per share growth of at least 5% for 2013.
