In the first three quarters of the year, the Warimpex Group improved all of its key financial metrics versus the prior-year period. The profit for the period increased from EUR 2.6 million to EUR 13.6 million. These developments can primarily be attributed to the following factors: higher occupancy at the office properties in Poland; the full consolidation of an additional office property in St. Petersburg; an improvement in occupancy rates at hotels, particularly in comparison to the previous year, which was still significantly impacted by COVID-19; and not least the strength of the Russian rouble.
The Warimpex Group is pleased to report positive operating performance for our office properties and hotels in the first half of 2022. Revenues from office property rental and from hotel operations improved in annual comparison. Two transactions were also successfully closed in June, one being the sale of the B52 office building in Budapest with over 5,200 square metres of net floor space under a share deal.
Warimpex has acquired the Red Tower office building with a total area of more than 12,000 square metres in the Polish city of Łódź. The transaction was closed at the end of June 2022. This is Warimpex’s third investment in Łódź, following the andel’s hotel and Ogrodowa Office.
Warimpex announces the sale of B52 Office in Budapest to Semmelweis University. The contracting parties have agreed on a purchase price of EUR 12.575 million for the fully occupied office building with a total area of more than 5,200 square metres. The transaction was successfully completed on 29 June 2022.
The business operations of the Warimpex Group developed positively in the first quarter of 2022. Particularly the performance of the hotels improved following a weaker prior-year period due to the pandemic, and revenues in the office segment also increased significantly. Nevertheless, measurement losses on Russian properties and losses from changes in the foreign exchange rate for the rouble led to a loss of EUR 4.4 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared with a loss of EUR 0.5 million in the previous year.
Vienna/Warsaw, 27 April 2022 – The Warimpex Group achieved a positive operational performance in 2021. The hotel segment saw a particularly solid recovery compared with the weak year caused by the pandemic in 2020 and in the office segment, properties with long-term leases that are contractually assured generated ongoing cash flows. Along with obtaining important building permits for development projects in Poland, the company started the construction of Mogilska 35 Office in Krakow. New leases were concluded in Budapest and Krakow, so B52 Office and Mogilska 43 Office are both fully occupied now. The overall occupancy rate for the office properties is 96 per cent. The Warimpex Group’s result for the period improved significantly, going from a loss of EUR 31.1 million to a gain of EUR 12.0 million.
