JSE-listed EPP outperforms the market in 2018

JSE-traded EPP, the pure Polish retail property fund, delivered a total return of 21% in 2018 to significantly outperform the market, making it the top performing listed property company of the year. This is a significant difference from the benchmark index (SAPY) total return of -25%.

EPP, Poland’s largest retail property owner, posted distribution growth of 12% per share to EUR 5.82 cents for the six months ended 30 June 2018.

JSE-listed diversified real estate investment trust Redefine Properties continues to expand into the exciting Polish market with the acquisition of a 95% share for €185.8 million (R2.9 billion) in a portfolio of nine operating logistics properties located throughout Poland.

 JSE-listed EPP - the retail-focused Polish property play – announced first quarter results for the three months ended 31 March 2018 (“Q1”), showing distributable earnings increased 48% to €23.7 million and increased 9% on a per share basis to €2.98 compared to Q1 2017. 

Today Redefine Properties has fulfilled all of the conditions necessary to finalise its 75% plus one share investment into a 1.2 billion Euro high-yielding commercial platform comprising 18 properties in the Polish market.
