Success in Würzburg leads to leaner structures at EVANGroup

- Sale of micro-apartments in Würzburg is going according to plan

- Exclusive focus in future on apartments in cities with high proportion of single households

- EVANGroup ends activities in the retail sector


Malta, 13 March 2020. With a current sales status in Würzburg of 65 percent, EVANGroup plc ("EVAN") (ISIN DE000A19L426 / WKN A19L42) expects the sale of the entire "Urlaubstraße 2a and b" property to be completed by early summer this year. This great success has led EVAN to withdraw from its activities in the retail sector. The company plans to streamline its business model by concentrating on small-unit accommodation in the urban environment.

"The background to this decision is the increasing reduction in sales in the stationary retail trade and the development risks associated with the implementation," explains Ulrich Gerstner, Director of EVAN. "We constantly review our market positioning and have come to the conclusion that our livinit strategy, i.e. the development and management of residential real estate in the micro-apartment segment, most effectively yields the returns we are expecting. In the future, we intend to concentrate exclusively on innovative living concepts in cities with a high proportion of single households."

For this reason the purchase contracts for the properties in Neuss, Bochum and Büdingen were not performed. This decision of the management is leading to a write-down on the properties mentioned and the resulting losses are being offset on the balance sheet by a capital reduction according to Maltese law. These measures ultimately lead to a balance sheet contraction and have no effect on the company's liquidity or on the interest payment or repayment of the issued bond. The total volume of the bond has already been adjusted to the new business orientation of the company.

There are currently 285 residential units being sold in Würzburg, which are being specifically built for students and hospital nursing staff. The property consists of four new buildings and one refurbished existing building. In addition to 246 apartments with an average size of 21.9 m², 39 apartments for flat-sharing communities can also be purchased. EVAN expects the construction work to be completed in autumn/winter 2021.
