AROUNDTOWN ANNOUNCES S&P RATING UPGRADE TO 'BBB+' BASED ON STRONG BUSINESS PROFILE

07 December 2017.

Standard & Poor's ('S&P') upgraded Aroundtown's long term corporate credit rating to 'BBB+' with a stable outlook from 'BBB' which was assigned in June 2016. The upgrade by one notch also applies to Aroundtown's senior unsecured debt to 'BBB+' and its perpetual notes to 'BBB-'.

The rating upgrade is the result of S&P's assessment of Aroundtown stronger asset profile thus increasing the business profile assessment to strong. The stronger asset profile results from S&P's acknowledgement of Aroundtown's increased portfolio size rising from acquisitions and property improvements, asset diversification, which is well balanced across asset types and regions with long lease structures and a strong and diverse tenant base, generating continuously strong like-for-like rental income growth.

S&P has additionally raised their management and governance assessment reflecting Aroundtown's strong established track record consistently executing its announced strategy with a highly experienced management within the real estate industry.
