- Acceleration of investment activities
- Largest portfolio in the company's history acquired
- Further investments expected
Coreo AG has made extensive new acquisitions in the current financial year
2021. While the past financial year 2020 was still characterised by the
pandemic-related restrictions and thus only a low investment volume of EUR
3.3 million, the property acquisition in the course of the financial year
2021 to date has already amounted to approximately EUR 59 million according
to our estimates. The prerequisite for the significantly increased purchase
volume was the corporate financing obtained at the end of 2020. The company
received a loan of EUR 23 million from a well-known investor, which was
used to repay the outstanding 10 % option bond with a volume of around EUR
15 million and to expand the liquidity available for acquisitions.
The investments are the acquisition of two production sites and the
administrative headquarters of a German listed automotive supplier.
According to our assumptions, the purchase price is likely to have been
around EUR 8.7 million. In addition, 89.9 % of the GmbH shares in an
existing company were acquired in July 2021 by way of a share deal,
comprising a total of 1,341 residential and 15 commercial units. This was
the largest acquisition in the company's history. Assuming a rental yield
that is normal for Coreo, the total portfolio value is likely to be
slightly above EUR 50 million, although the purchase price in the share
deal is likely to have been significantly lower. A significant part of the
purchase price was paid in the form of the 1.45 million shares in MagForce
AG held to date. According to our calculations, this should cover around
EUR 6 million of the purchase price. The closing of this transaction is
expected for the coming financial year 2022.
With the notification of 28 July 2021, the company also announced the
change of the major shareholder. The previous major shareholder Apeiron
Investment Group Ltd. announced that it had fallen below the 25% threshold
and, in parallel, FLORA S.A., which specialises in real estate investments,
published that it had exceeded this threshold. This change is to be
understood as a further component of the more comprehensive focus on the
real estate sector.
We have used the current property portfolio (including the acquisitions
made in the current financial year 2021) as the basis for our forecasts and
for our valuation of Coreo AG. In addition, we have assumed further
investments. According to long-term investment planning, Coreo AG plans to
expand the total residential and commercial property portfolio to EUR 400 -
500 million in the next four to five years. For our forecasts, we take a
more conservative approach and, based on the current property portfolio of
over EUR 100 million, expect new investments totalling EUR 110 million for
the next three financial years.
For 2021, we expect a slight increase in rental income and, in view of the
reletting of properties in the Hydra portfolio and initial successes in
asset management following the acquisition of the LEG portfolio, a notable
valuation result. From the coming financial year, a strong increase in
rental income should be generated with the addition of the already acquired
extensive property portfolio and expected new investments. This should
increasingly become the most important revenue component from 2023 onwards.
Already for 2021, we assume an EBIT of EUR 4.92 million, which should
increase to EUR 13.83 million (FY 2022e) and EUR 17.17 million (FY 2023e)
in the coming financial years.
In principle, Coreo AG should benefit from the favourable market conditions
after the implementation of the financing measures and the overall improved
access to acquisition funds. The increasing size of the property portfolio,
which forms the basis for a higher rental volume, should ensure that the
already falling financing costs improve further. With the acquisitions
made, the company has taken an important step towards increasing the sales
volume and a disproportionate development of earnings.
Within the framework of our DCF valuation model, we have determined a new
target price of EUR 2.60 (previously: EUR 2.35). On the one hand, the roll-
over effect had the effect of increasing the price target. On the other
hand, the significant investments made resulted in a slight reduction of
the company-specific beta. We continue to give the rating BUY.
