IRSA Inversiones y Representaciones Sociedad Anonima Announces Results for the first three-month period of FY 2013 Ended September 30, 2012

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- IRSA Inversiones y Representaciones Sociedad Anonima (NYSE: IRS; BASE: IRSA), the leading real estate company in Argentina, announces its results for the first three month of FY 2013 Ended September 30, 2012.

As from fiscal year 2013, the company adopts accounting policies based on the International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") to prepare its financial statements. Until now, the company's financial statements were prepared in compliance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles of Argentina ("ARG GAAP") which differ in certain respects from the IFRS. For such reason, we have changed certain valuation and disclosure accounting policies.

  • Net income for the first quarter of 2013 was ARS 50.8 million, compared to a loss of ARS 112 million in 2012 mainly due to lower financial charges and higher income from Banco Hipotecario and the valuation of Hersha.
  • IRSA's revenues increased 12.7% in the first quarter of 2013, to ARS 486.3 million, and EBITDA rose 14.3% to ARS 248.3 million.
  • Revenues and EBITDA from the Shopping Center segment grew 17.9% and 10.7%, respectively, in the first three months of 2013, compared to 2012. The EBITDA/Revenue margin, excluding common maintenance expense fund and common promotional fund, reached 80%, and occupancy stood at 98.4%.
  • As concerns the Offices segment, revenues and EBITDA increased by 20.9% and 22.8%, respectively, in the 3-month period. This improvement in activity has been driven by the 100% occupancy of "Dot Building", which increased portfolio occupancy to 97.5%, and a slight improvement in the portfolio's USD / sqm rental levels.
  • During this period we sold non-strategic office assets for an amount of approximately USD 15.0 million.
  • In September 2012, through our subsidiary IRSA International LLC, we executed an agreement whereby we promised to acquire Rigby Madison LLC's 33.36% interest in the company that owns the Madison 183 building, located in Manhattan. In this way, IRSA's interest in Rigby 183 LLC will reach 82.36% of its stock capital.
  • The shareholders' meeting held on October 31, last approved the payment of a cash dividend for ARS 180,000,000, equivalent to 0.311054 ARS/share and 3.110546 ARS/ADR.
