Planned financing successfully implemented, high liquidity available for new investments, target price of EUR 2.35 and BUY rating confirmed
As announced after the cancellation of the bond issue by Coreo AG, the company has successfully concluded a replacement financing. According to the latest company announcement, the company has received a loan of EUR 23 million from a renowned investor and can thus promptly implement the planned financing and refinancing measures. These include the repayment of the warrant bond with an outstanding volume of EUR 15 million, which has a comparatively high interest rate of 10%. With a loan interest rate of 6.75 %, cost savings can be realised promptly through the redemption of the warrant bond. According to our calculations, these should be around EUR 0.50 in the coming financial year. In connection with the loan, the two shareholders Christian Angermayer and the alex schütz familienstiftung have agreed to strengthen the equity base by at least EUR 5 million in the course of a capital increase and thus secure the planned growth.
The remaining volume from the loan of EUR 7 million after the refinancing of the warrant bond is to be used for the continuation of the growth strategy through property acquisitions. In addition, Coreo AG announced the profitable sale of three properties in the Hydra portfolio in the Corporate News of 21.12.2020. With the expected transfer of benefits and burdens in the first quarter of 2021, the company should report a liquidity inflow of between EUR 3 - 4 million. The sale will already have an effect on earnings in the current 2020 financial year through the write-up on the sale price. Including the inflow of liquidity from the property sale, Coreo AG could implement new investments of more than EUR 30 million at an assumed LTV of 66 %.
Not to be neglected are the still existing extensive financial assets, which include, among other things, an investment in MagForce AG. In principle, the investment in MagForce AG, which had a valuation of EUR 4.50 million as at 30 June 2020, is available for disposal and would thus support the financing of future property acquisitions. Compared to the balance sheet date, the MagForce share has also recorded a significant price increase of over 70%. As of today, this would mean an increase in the valuation of approximately EUR 3.2 million, which would simultaneously lead to an increase in NAV.
With the purchase of the neighbouring property to the area already acquired in September, Coreo AG has around 17,000 square metres for which residential building rights are to be created. The reduction of vacancies in the Hydra portfolio is also developing according to plan. While the properties in Gießen and Kiel are now let on long-term leases, the flats in Berger Straße in Frankfurt am Main are about to be let. In Wetzlar, too, all the residential units have been let, and rental negotiations for the commercial space are well advanced.
In our previous revenue and earnings forecasts (see research study dated 3 November 2020), we had already assumed the successful conclusion of the financing as the basis for the further expansion of the property portfolio. Although the new investments we had assumed in the amount of around EUR 25 million have not yet been made, in our previous estimates we had in any case only taken into account the impact of new investments on sales and earnings from the coming financial year. With the higher liquidity now available, Coreo AG should be in a position to implement property and project acquisitions in a timely manner and we therefore maintain our forecasts published in the last research study. We will only include the effects from the promised strengthening of equity by the two anchor shareholders after the capital increase has been completed.
Since our DCF valuation model also remains unchanged, we are maintaining our previous price target of EUR2.35. Based on the current price level of EUR 1.49, we continue to assign a BUY rating.
