- Profit for the period amounted to €342 million with a basic EPS of €1.68 and diluted EPS of €1.58.

- Disposals of over €350 million during the first nine months of 2020, resulting in gains of €108 million over total costs and at a slight premium above book value, generating an FFO II of €270 million during 9M 2020.

Luxembourg, November 16, 2020 - Grand City Properties S.A. ("GCP" or the "Company") announces results for the first nine months of 2020 with its resilient portfolio delivering continuously increasing operational profitability. The business profitability continued to perform with adjusted EBITDA and FFO I both increasing by 1% to €223 million and €162 million respectively, offsetting the impact on the marginal decline in net rental income from the successful disposals of non-core and mature assets above book value amounting to over €350 million during the period. This increase was due to a steady like-for-like rental growth of 2.6% coupled with an optimized operating platform generating strong business efficiencies that support operational profitability. Acquisitions in the first nine months of 2020 were completed later in the reporting period and will thus fully impact the rental income positively in the following periods. GCP's solid operational results along with positive fundamentals in its portfolio locations have together resulted in property revaluations and capital gains amounting to €272 million, increasing by over 3% on a like-for-like basis.

The coronavirus pandemic raised various challenges, however GCP responded with agility and implemented several processes that have ensured the safety and well-being of all relevant stakeholders. Therefore, there was no material adverse impact from the coronavirus pandemic on the operational results. GCP remains well prepared and confirms the guidance for 2020.

During the reporting period, GCP completed disposals amounting to over €350 million. The disposals were closed at a slight premium over net book values and generated a strong profit margin of 43% over total costs including capex. In addition, during the reporting period the Company signed further disposals amounting to over €500 million, expected to be closed in the coming months. GCP also completed high-quality acquisitions of approx. €380 million during the first nine months of 2020. Primarily located in Berlin and London, the accretive acquisitions included over 500 units acquired at a multiple of 21x as well as a further 700 units which are currently in the pre-let stage and are expected to be let out in the coming periods. GCP's investment property portfolio remains resilient and is valued at a €1,792/sqm with a rental yield of 4.6%

Refael Zamir, CEO of Grand City Properties: "During the course of the nine months of 2020, GCP has once more proven the agility and adaptability of its organization, with a portfolio that remains resilient and diversified on multiple levels, providing strong returns and sustainable growth, ensuring the Company is well placed to achieve its targets for 2020."
