“Since the beginning of the year, Altarea has taken full advantage of the booming urban transformation market, in which it holds undisputed leadership positions with its comprehensive offering and wide product ranges. Operational successes achieved in each of our business lines make us confident about our outlooks, while remaining vigilant as to the changes in the environment.
In an inflationary context, driven by the consequences of the war in Ukraine, Altarea has already hardened its criteria in terms of land commitments and project launches. We note, however, that demand remains strong from all customers, with real estate playing its full role as a safe haven in times of crisis. More than ever, Altarea is proactive in terms of risk management, and will make the most of its agility and ability to seize opportunities in a market that remains favourably oriented.
Altarea remains confident in its long-term outlooks, which are fundamentally based on the urban transformation market. Given the non-completion of the acquisition of the Primonial group, we modify the guidance announced on 22 February. Considering the first quarter performance, we expect its 2022 operating profit to be significantly higher than 2021 and 2019, unless the macroeconomic and geopolitical context deteriorates further. By 2025, we are targeting FFO per share of around €18, mainly generated by organic growth.
Altarea's financial structure is particularly sound, with historically low net debt and abundant liquidity. As a result, and given the absence of any significant acquisition in the short term, Altarea will propose to the next Annual General Meeting of Shareholders the payment of the annual dividend entirely in cash.”
