The significant increase in total assets, in the fair value of investment property and participations, and in the intrinsic value of Noval Property reflects, on one hand, the positive dynamics for high-quality, bioclimatic, and sustainable commercial properties, and on the other, it is the result of the Company’s investment portfolio enhancement with new assets and participations, in the context of the share capital increase that was completed on 27.06.2022.
The Chief Executive Officer of Noval Property, Mr. Panagiotis Kapetanakos, stated: “The increase in revenue and the intrinsic value of the Company, as well as, the generation of significant profit in H1 2022, despite the adverse conditions prevailing as a result of the war between Russia and Ukraine and the general geopolitical developments in Europe since last February, the energy crisis following and the inflation rise, are proof of our ability to implement our investment programme with our stakeholders’ benefit in mind. We steadily proceed, making use of the funds that we raised from the successful issue of our first green bond of EUR 120 million in December 2021, to the implementation of our investment strategy that focuses on modern, high-quality, bioclimatic, sustainable and energy efficient commercial properties. At the same time, during H1 2022, we published Noval Property’s first Sustainability Report for 2021 that was based on the updated standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI Standards 2021), as well as on European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) relating to Sustainable Best Practices (sBPR), confirming our commitment on environmental, social responsibility and corporate governance matters.”
