Essen, Germany, 23 February 2021
Based on preliminary, unaudited figures for its 2020 financial year, Instone Real Estate Group AG ("Instone") reports
2020 adjusted revenues of around EUR 480 million, in line with its most recent EUR 470-500 million guidance. 2020
adjusted earnings after tax have come in at approximately EUR 40 million, exceeding previous company expectations of
EUR 30-35 million as well as analyst consensus estimates (median of EUR 35.2 million).
Prices achieved in Q4 institutional as well as retail sales, reduced project costs as well as lower than anticipated
platform costs have all contributed to the better than expected bottom line. The positive developments are evidenced by
our gross margin, which is expected to be approximately 30% for fiscal year 2020 (forecast > 28%).
Instone continues to benefit from the ongoing positive demand environment for German residential properties in
metropolitan regions. However, regulatory approvals for certain Instone projects are at risk to be delayed versus our
previous expectations due to the ongoing COVID-19 related lock-down. As a result the management board now expects 2021
adjusted revenues to amount to EUR 820-900 versus previous guidance of EUR 0.9-1.0 billion. Previous expectations with
respect to 2021 earnings after tax, however, are confirmed at EUR 90-95 million as the positive pricing environment, a
beneficial project sales mix and construction cost benefits across our projects are expected to continue to materialise
throughout fiscal year 2021.
In line with these expectations management guides for a 2021 adjusted gross margin of 26-27% and 2021 volume of
concluded sales contracts of at least EUR 900 million.
Instone will publish its final results and annual report for 2020 on 18 March 2021, as planned.
