Luxembourg, November 19, 2018 - Grand City Properties S.A. ("GCP" or the "Company") presents its first nine months of 2018 results with achievements in both top and bottom-line. Robust growth in the top-line is driven by high like-for-like performance and accretive acquisitions. This is further refined by strong operational performance, leading to a significant FFO I growth of 15% YOY to EUR150 million (EUR0.91 per share), which supports the solid value creation in the portfolio, evident in 10% growth in EPRA NAV to EUR3.7 billion.

Enhanced asset quality through accretive capital recycling program
During the course of 2018, GCP has been pursuing an accretive capital recycling program where the disposals of non-core assets are channeled into attractive acquisitions in high quality locations, especially in London and Berlin. These assets, consisting of non-core and mature properties, were sold for an amount of over EUR400 million, generating a 6% profit over net book value. The profit over total cost of EUR115 million (profit margin of 40%) lifted the FFO II by 72% to EUR265 million.

Strong ESG standards, reflected by EPRA awards
In September 2018, GCP received the EPRA BPR Gold Award for the second consecutive year for its 2017 annual financial report, as well as the EPRA sBPR Gold Award for its EPRA sBPR reporting, highlighting GCP's commitment to the highest standards of transparency and reporting.

Christian Windfuhr, CEO of Grand City Properties: "During the first nine months of 2018, we continued on our success path by lifting the internal growth potential in our portfolio and demonstrated high operational performance, leading to strong value creation, which is further underlined by the exceptional profits recorded by our capital recycling program. Our results show that we are in a firm position to end 2018 successfully."
