Quarterly financial information



Cegereal - Rental income up 13.9%

“Alongside our good operating results, the first quarter was shaped by Northwood Investors’ tender offer in January 2016, followed by the successful placement of over 40% of the capital said Raphaël Tréguier, Chief Executive Officer of Cegereal. “The redesign of the company’s shareholding allows us to maintain our status as a French REIT and to welcome GIC as a key partner.”

  • Entry of new shareholders and REIT status maintained

The Northwood Investors concert now only holds 57.48% of Cegereal. Northwood, which held 98.44% of Cegereal’s share capital following the tender offer that closed on January 25, 2016, has sold a portion of its CGR shares in a financing round with leading institutional investors, including GIC, which took up 25%.

This transaction allows Cegereal to continue to benefit from the REIT tax regime.

The maintenance of REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) status is conditional on a single shareholder or several shareholders acting in concert – within the meaning of Article L.223-10 of the French Commercial Code – not holding, directly or indirectly, more than 60% of the company’s share capital, as per Article 208C of the French General Tax Code.

  • Amount to be distributed in dividends in 2016: €2.0 per share

At the Annual Shareholders' Meeting on May 26, 2016, Cegereal intends to recommend paying a total of €2.0 in dividends per share in 2016. The dividend will be paid on July 20, 2016, subject to shareholders' approval.
