PATRIZIA reports solid FY 2020 results and expects profitable growth to continue throughout FY 2021

- Operating income of EUR 116.5m fully in line with FY 2020 guidance

- Assets under management increased by 5.7% y-o-y to EUR 47.0bn

- Guidance range for FY 2021 operating income of EUR 100.0 - 145.0m


Augsburg, 24 February 2021. PATRIZIA AG, a leading partner for global real assets, had a solid FY 2020 despite the challenging market environment due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Based on preliminary financial results, PATRIZIA achieved an operating income of EUR 116.5m, which is only 13.4% below last year's level and fully in line with the FY 2020 year-end guidance. It is proof of the strong and reliable business model even in an adverse economic and market environment.

Even during one of the worst economic environments globally, PATRIZIA managed to receive equity commitments of EUR 1.9bn, of which more than half came from international clients. Over 30 new domestic and international institutional clients were welcomed to the PATRIZIA platform thereby increasing the strong, diversified client base to over 450. PATRIZIA further expanded its position as a leading partner for global real assets in 2020, now ranking among the top 3 fully independent investment managers for real estate in Europe.

The resilience of investment strategies and the successful business expansion is reflected in further increased assets under management to EUR 47.0bn, an increase of 5.7% y-o-y. The focus on Core/Core+ and selected Value Add investment strategies as well as crises resistant asset classes like residential and logistics helped to withstand pressure from increased market uncertainties.

Recurring management fees increased by 1.3% y-o-y to EUR 193.4m, which proves the stability and resilience of the business model. Adjusted for aperiodic items in the previous year, management fees increased by 3.4% y-o-y. Following Covid-19 lock-downs in Europe, transaction activity in the overall real estate market was down 27% y-o-y. Against this headwind, PATRIZIA signed 5.4bn and closed EUR 6.9bn of transactions for its global client base. This translates into transaction fees of EUR 48.1m in FY 2020. Performance fees of EUR 86.1m remained a stable contributor to operating income. Total service fee income - which combines management, transaction and performance fees - came in at EUR 327.6m, only 5.9% below last year's level. At the same time, tight cost control led to net operating expenses decreasing 3.3% y-o-y to EUR 219.7m.

For FY 2021, PATRIZIA expects an operating income in a range of EUR 100.0m to 145.0m. The range is underpinned by the assumption that assets under management and management fees will continue to grow further compared to FY 2020, stabilising operating income at a high level overall.

Wolfgang Egger, CEO of PATRIZIA AG, said: "We were able to raise around EUR 1.9bn of fresh equity for investments in resilient markets in Europe. Our clients trust us even in difficult times for three reasons: We are a forward-thinking partner, we invest responsibly and we have an extensive track record of delivering value. Together with our strong performance on real asset transaction markets, this validates the long-term value drivers of real asset investment management: demographic change, a lower-for-longer interest rate environment and ongoing market consolidation."

Karim Bohn, CFO of PATRIZIA AG, said: "Our very solid balance sheet and a high degree of financial flexibility will continue to provide stability and further growth opportunities for PATRIZIA in the future. During FY 2020, we were able to show further cost-discipline while at the same time growing our recurring management fees."

„Eine Investition in Mutares lohnt sich“

Mutares ist ein europaweit führender Private-Equity-Investor, der sich auf Sondersituationen wie Abspaltungen von großen Konzernen oder Turnaround- und Nachfolgesituationen spezialisiert hat. Ziel ist es, mit den Investments einen Return auf das eingesetzte Kapital von 7 bis 10 zu erzielen. Mit der jüngsten Mittelfristprognose hat der Münchner Finanzinvestor auf Basis von 5 Mrd. Euro Konzernumsatz eine Nettorendite für die börsennotierte Holding von 1,8 bis 2,2 % in Aussicht gestellt. In der Mitte der Zielspanne wird somit ein Nettogewinn von circa 100 Mio. Euro anvisiert. Hauck & Aufhäuser hat in der jüngsten Analyse ein Buy-Rating mit Kursziel für Mutares von 37,50 Euro ausgegeben.
