S Immo has a track record of cleverly anticipating regional/sectoral real estate cycles in Europe. This includes the expansion into CEE in the early 2000s, later investments in the German residential and office markets and subsequent diversification outside of Berlin. Its active approach has allowed the company to post five- and 10-year EPRA NAV total returns (TR) of c 23% and 14% pa, respectively. It recently received and accepted a bid from CPI for €23.50/share.
S Immo’s FY21 results saw a gross profit recovery very close to 2019 and EPS setting an all-time record of €3.24 per share. This was accompanied by a positive outlook statement. The shares closed at €22.75 on 29 April, representing a c 22% discount to its FY21 EPRA NAV of €29.29. On 2 May, it was announced that CPI had raised its bid for S Immo to €23.50 (cum dividend), which the management board has accepted.
