PATRIZIA AG, a leading partner for global real assets, had a solid FY 2020 despite the challenging market environment due to the Covid-19 pandemic. PATRIZIA achieved an operating income of EUR 116.5m. It is proof of the strong and resilient business model even in an adverse economic and market environment.

Management Board and Supervisory Board will propose a dividend per share of EUR 0.30 to shareholders at the Company’s AGM on 23 June 2021, another increase by 3.4% y-o-y and the third increase in dividends per share in a row.

Karim Bohn, CFO of PATRIZIA AG, said: “The solid financial results of 2020 and our continued growth in major KPIs support our dividend strategy. It is a great achievement of the PATRIZIA platform and team that we are able to increase the pay-out to shareholders again, even in a challenging market environment.”

For FY 2021, PATRIZIA expects an operating income in a range of EUR 100.0m to 145.0m, equivalent to growth of up to 24.5% at the upper end of the guidance. Assets under management are expected to increase between 6.4% and 12.8% y-o-y, leading to further growth in recurring management fees in FY 2021.

PATRIZIA made further progress on its Sustainability strategy during 2020.
