SIIC PAREF, a property company specialised in property investment and management on behalf of third parties, announces revenue of €14.6 million for the first six months of the year (an increase of 28.3% compared with the first six months of 2015) after the deconsolidation of SCPI Interpierre as of 1 January 2016.
|Revenue (€ millions)||HY1 2016||HY1 2015 *||% change||FY 2015 *|
|Total rent and costs recovered||7.2||6.7||7.1%||12.5|
|Consolidated IFRS revenue||14.6||11.4||28.3%||22.0|
These figures take into account the standard IFRIC 21, which was applied by the Company for the first time at 30 June 2015.

Growth in rental income
Rental income for the first half of 2016 totalled €4.8 million, a 2.1% increase compared with the same period of the previous financial year. Rent and costs recovered for the first six months of 2016 amounted to €7.2 million, compared with €6.7 million for the first half of 2015. This growth was mainly due to the acquisition of the Gentilly building. On a constant Group structure basis, rental income fell 3.5% (primarily due to the renegotiation of the Pantin building).
The occupancy rate, restated for the exit of Interpierre from the consolidation scope, rose to 94.0% at 30 June 2016, compared with 93% at 31 March 2016 (81.3% vs. 80.7%, Gaïa included).
The rental management business stood out due to three new leases or renewals being signed, including the signing of a new lease for the Pantin asset, for a firm duration of six years. Paref will shortly initiate a €900 K work programme to optimise the energy performance of this building.
Note that Interpierre France was deconsolidated as of 1 January 2016 and is now equity accounted. Interpierre's rental income represented €2.0 million over the first half of 2016 (compared with €1.6 million for the same period of 2015) and recovered costs €1.1 million. The SCPI had total assets of €51 million at 30 June 2016.
Increase in SCPI subscription fees
During the first half of 2016, management and subscription fees rose by 58.7% to €7.4 million, compared with €4.7 million for the same period in 2015.
This increase was the result of the attractiveness of SCPI Novapierre Germany whose fundraising grew significantly in comparison with the same period the previous year (€44.8 million against €24 million for the six months to 30 June 2015). The SCPI's marketing has been suspended for a period of three months as o
