Rental income for Foncière des Murs is stable on a like-for-like basis on 31
March 2013. 
Consolidated revenue stands at EUR44.6 million, up 0.8 % compared with 31 March
2012. The change in the consolidated revenue primarily results from: 
o Acquisition of 158 B&B hotels made in 2012 generating EUR4.2 million in 
rental income, Group Share
  o The positive impact of rental indexation representing EUR0.6 million, 
partially offset by the downturn in revenue of variable-rent hotels  
(-EUR0.5 million)
  o The impact of sales of hotel, healthcare and retail assets (-EUR3.8 


This increase in rental income shows the resilience of the business model of
Foncière des Murs, French leader in premises holding and number one lessor of
two of the biggest hotel operators in France (Accor and B&B).
