Performance Highlight

Gross revenue, NPI and distributable income increased yoy mainly due to contribution from properties acquired in 2021 and higher rental income.

In 1Q 2022, CEREIT acquired 2 properties in Italy and 1 in Germany.


Development for building extension of Lovosice ONE Industrial Park I has commenced and is expected to be completed by 4Q 2023. For the Via Nervesa 21, strip-out works are almost completed.

Sensitivity to Interest Rate
CEREIT debt is 100% hedged until Oct 2022 and would become 77% hedged after that. Should the 3-month Euribor increase to 1% (1.45% increase from the current negative 0.45%), then the impact would be 2 million, around 2.1% of FY21 distributable income.
