Warimpex starts off 2024 with stable operating results

Vienna/Warsaw, 29 May 2024 – Warimpex is starting off the year 2024 in a persistently challenging market
environment characterised by high interest rates and elevated prices. This is reflected in a weaker profit for
the first quarter compared with the same period of the prior year, moving slightly into negative territory (Q1
2024: EUR -0.8 million, Q1 2023: EUR 1.4 million)…

Warimpex in 2023: Positive operating result, but significant measurement losses

Vienna/Warsaw, 29 April 2024 – The high interest rate levels and elevated construction costs posed a tremendous challenge for the entire real estate sector last year, and Warimpex was no exception to this trend. Nevertheless, the company generated a clearly positive operating result, with a 10 per cent increase in revenues to EUR 49.7 million. This success is contrasted by significant property valuation losses totalling EUR 38.3 million, which can be attributed above all to the development of interest rates and the effects of the conflict in Ukraine. Thus, the result for the period fell from EUR 42.9 million in the previous year to minus EUR 23.8 million.

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.
