The Portfolio was valued at €519.7 million (31st December 2016: €423.8 million) by Jones Lang LaSalle GmbH, the Company’s external valuers, as at 30th June 2017. This represents a headline increase of 22.6 per cent over the six-month period and equates to a 17.4 per cent increase in value per square metre to €2,307 (31st December 2016: €1,965).
On a like-for-like basis, after adjusting for the impact of acquisitions net of disposals, the Portfolio valuation increased by 15.6 per cent in the six months ended 30th June 2017. This increase in valuation reflects a combination of yield compression and growth in Portfolio rents.
