Frankfurt am Main, 17 October 2019 – Godewind Immobilien AG (ISIN: DE000A2G8XX3, trading symbol: GWD, Godewind), a company specializing in German office real estate, announces another lease success in Frankfurt for the ComConCenter office complex.

Godewind concluded a follow-up rental agreement with an existing anchor tenant for 6,112 m² of office space and 200 m² of storage space at attractive market rents. The lease was extended by six years and now has a total term of eight years. In addition, an extension of 1,526 m² was agreed with the anchor tenant. Here, the lease for the first part of the space will begin on 1 February and for the remaining space on 1 May 2020. The lease term is seven years. As a result of this significant lease success the asset KPIs based on the contractually secured rental agreements will change as follows:

– The contracted rental income rises annualised to more than EUR 2.3 million compared to EUR 2.0 million at the time of purchase.
– Vacancy rate will fall to 2.8 percent compared to 12.6 percent previously.
– The WALT will increase to 6.2 years after 2.8 years recently.

These parameters will have a positive impact on the valuation of the ComConCenter at of year end 2019. This year, Godewind has thus leased a total of around 37,900 m² of new space to date and extended the lease agreements for around 38,400 m² of space. The total new letting performance since the purchase of all office properties has reduced the pro forma portfolio vacancy rate to 10 percent. This strategically acquired vacant space further on offers considerable growth potential, an helps to further increase the EPRA Net Asset Value (NAV) in the medium term. The current lease success proofs again the attractiveness of the value-add/manage-2-core strategy.
