Vonovia to Sell €1.0bn Minority Equity Participation in “Südewo” at around Fair Value

 

Bochum, April 26, 2023 – Vonovia announces the sale of a minority common equity participation in its “Südewo” portfolio to Apollo, on behalf of its affiliated and third-party insurance clients and other long-term investors, for €1.0bn. The investment represents an ownership of just under 30% adjusted for minorities.

The transaction values the Südewo portfolio at €3.3bn on a debt free and cash free basis, implying a discount below 5% to its fair value as of December 31, 2022, and below 6% to the fair value as of June 30, 2022.

CEO Rolf Buch commented, “We are pleased to have these word-class, long-term insurance and institutional partners for our Südewo portfolio. The transaction demonstrates the attractiveness of German residential rental income in general and our portfolio in particular. It is also a significant step in reaching our full-year disposal targets.”

Vonovia retains a long-term call-option to repurchase the participation at an IRR of 6.95%-8.30%  (including dividends received), and hence retains 100% of the upside of any outperformance of the portfolio. There is no obligation for Vonovia to exercise the call-option. The minority participation includes a higher-than pro-rata share of the dividend distribution by Südewo, and will have customary minority investor protection rights.

Vonovia will continue to control, operate and consolidate the portfolio, which comprises more than 21k residential units in locations across the southwestern state of Baden-Württemberg.

Closing of the transaction is expected to occur around May 31, 2023 and is subject to further conditions such as the absence of material adverse changes and regulatory clearances.

With the proceeds, Vonovia generates ~50% of the targeted €2bn free cash flow from asset disposals to which the company committed for 2023E. The transaction has no material impact on Vonovia’s near term Group FFO per share or NTA per share. Vonovia intends to use the proceeds for liability management and to cover upcoming debt maturities, with the company’s LTV expected to be reduced by 1 percentage point to 44.1% and Net debt / EBITDA by 0.3x to 15.5x.

Including this transaction, this year’s refinancing requirements are fully covered.

J.P. Morgan and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer are acting as exclusive financial advisor and legal counsel to Vonovia, respectively. Latham & Watkins and Paul, Weiss served as legal counsel to Apollo.
