Remon Vos, CEO says “Our performance over the first half of 2021 shows the quality of our business parks, attracting high-quality tenants that drive our profitable growth. Demand in our markets continues to grow, and our CTParks are well-positioned to benefit from the trends of e-commerce, supply chain optimization, last-mile delivery and demand for parks designed to minimize environmental impact. Vacancy is at historic lows, and our strong customer relations have led to high retention rates with our annualised rent roll increasing 4% quarter-on-quarter to €380 million. Our execution power is strong: we successfully started as a listed company, significantly accelerated the expansion of our landbank, launched operations in the Netherlands and built up capacity in Austria, Bulgaria and Poland. We strive to expand our market-leading position in the CEE countries, while we bring our park makers vision to new markets where we see great potential for further growth.”

Richard Wilkinson, CFO adds: “We continue to see strong growth in profitability driven by rental growth, while the profitability of new developments continues to exceed the planned target of >10% Y-o-C. We made an excellent profit of €188.3 million while not having any revaluation of our investment portfolio, which underlines the strength of our business model. Our financial position is very strong, having realised the IPO, finalised the move to the unsecured funding platform and increased our liquidity position. IPO proceeds are sensibly used to accelerate our expansion, with the acquisition of income-producing assets in Romania and Hungary to solidify our market-leading positions in these markets. We have grown of our land bank to 14.7 million sqm and are on track to exceed the previous target of 7.5 million sqm GLA target per year-end, driving rental income growth in the years to come.”
