The shares have weakened on an exit from a key European real estate index but the company reports no material changes since its February trading update. This contrasted the strength of the Berlin private rental sector with the subdued investment market, which continues to weigh on property valuations. Full year results are due in April. FY23 new lettings were at a record €13.7 per sqm, 5.9% above the FY22 average, and a 31% premium to passing rents and in-place rents of €10.4 per sqm continue to offer significant reversionary potential. Sales of individual condominiums picked up in H223, underlining the strong premium to rental values, and PSD is seeking ways to significantly increase the number of individual condominium units (77% of the total) that can be made available for sale. Valuations were 11.9% lower on a like-for-like basis. We anticipate FY23 results will show EPRA net tangible assets per share of close to €4 (H123: €4.46) and a loan-to-value ratio of c 45% (H123: 42.2%).
