  • Occupancy at 94% (93% as at 31 March 2017) thanks to improvement in Galeria Jurajska and tenants expansion  mainly in FortyOne complex

The first half of 2017 was dedicated to advance planning and permitting on our development pipeline projects as well as acquisition of excellent new office locations in the fastest growing office markets of Budapest, Bucharest and Sofia. The opening of Galeria Północna in Q3 2017 will more than double the value of GTC’s income producing retail portfolio. More completions in Budapest and Belgrade planned for 2018 will further strengthen our yielding retail and office portfolios and contribute significant to rent income and NAV growth. As a result we have today 5 projects under construction and 8 projects in the planning stage, they will boost our income generating portfolio by 0,4 m sq. m GLA from 2017 to 2020” said Thomas Kurzmann, GTC’s CEO.

Thanks to the expansion of the company’s operations and development we secured long term financing through new bonds and refinancing activity. We continue to take advantage of the current low interest levels to significantly improve the costs of our debt, while optimizing the leverage ratiocommented Erez Boniel, GTC’s CFO. “Additionally, growing activity and improving results allowed us to pay dividend in Q2, which is another milestone in our growth momentum” he added.
