2014/11/17: YOUNIQ AG publishes financial report on first half of 2014

YOUNIQ AG, a leading German student housing provider, today published its 9M 2014 financial report with figures for the months from January to September. In the third quarter of 2014, YOUNIQ's continuing operations benefited from the substantial progress in the letting of its properties in Mainz, Potsdam and Bayreuth in addition to significant cost-cutting measures. Overall, the result of operations of the Group in its continuing and discontinued operations was as expected in the first nine months of 2014. YOUNIQ is therefore confident of closing the year as a whole in line with its forecasts - subject to additional costs arising from the Corestate Ben BidCo AG acquisition process currently ongoing. Further progress was made in sustainably reducing administrative and personnel expenses, including the merger of subsidiaries and the change in stock market segment from the Prime Standard to the Entry Standard of the German Stock Exchange that has been initiated.

2014/05/15: YOUNIQ AG publishes Q1 2014 report

YOUNIQ AG, a leading provider of student accommodation across Germany, has today published its results for the first three months of the 2014 financial year. During the first quarter 2014, the Group reported a loss before interest and tax (EBIT) of EUR -0.3 million, compared with EUR -1.1 million in the prior-year period. At Group level, it reported a consolidated net loss of EUR 1.9 million (Q1 2013: EUR 2.1 million). In its continuing operations, the consolidated net loss stood at EUR 1.2 million (Q1 2013: EUR 1.3 million), and in the discontinued operations at EUR 0.7 million (Q1 2013: EUR 0.9 million). The result achieved lay in the range of the forecast issued for the 2014 financial year. In particular, the cost-cutting measures that have been implemented fed through to a marked reduction in personnel and administrative expenses during the first quarter 2014. These were cut from EUR 1.6 million in the previous year to EUR 1.1 million in the first quarter of 2014. The fact that this positive effect is not reflected in the consolidated net result is attributable to the recognition of deferred taxes. These entailed a charge of EUR 0.3 million at Group level in the period under review, compared with a positive tax contribution of EUR 0.8 million in the prior-year period.

2014/03/28: YOUNIQ AG publishes final results and 2013 annual report

YOUNIQ AG, a real estate company specialising in student accommodation, has today published its final results for the 2013 fiscal year. The FY 2013 consolidated net loss amounted to EUR 54.1 million (previous year: EUR -7.1 million) in a year characterised by operating challenges. Of the losses, EUR 40.8 million were attributable to the core business of "YOUNIQ - Student Housing" (previous year: EUR +0.1 million), and EUR 13.3 million were attributable to discontinued operations (previous year: EUR -7.1 million). Losses of EUR 16.9 million from the market valuation of investment properties (previous year: EUR +6.7 million) placed a major burden on earnings in the business segments to be continued. The losses arise mainly from reductions to the sales prices of properties in Berlin and Göttingen, as well as retroactive construction cost adjustments of further properties in this segment. Losses of EUR 5.9 million from the disposal of properties (previous year: EUR -1.7 million) in the business segments to be continued, and a corporation income tax expense of EUR 8.6 million - resulting mainly from the reappraisal of the extent to which tax loss carryforwards can be utilised in the future, and consequently entailing a write-down applied to deferred tax assets - also contributed to the
consolidated loss.

2014/03/10: YOUNIQ AG publishes preliminary consolidated net result for financial year 2013

YOUNIQ AG, a real estate company specialising in Student Housing, reports a EUR 23.0 million consolidated net loss (IFRS) in the fourth quarter of 2013 on the basis of preliminary and unaudited results. In particular, a reappraisal of tax loss carryforwards and a resultant write-down of deferred tax assets contributed to this loss. In a 2013 financial year characterised by operating challenges, the full-year net loss (IFRS) amounted to EUR -54.1 million on the basis of preliminary and unaudited figures (2012: EUR -7.1 million). The losses - in addition to the mentioned write-down - were incurred in both the "YOUNIQ - Student Housing" segment and the segments that are to be discontinued. In the continuing operations, retroactive construction cost adjustments placed a particular burden on the result. In the operations to be discontinued, especially expenses and charges as part of the disposal of portfolio properties, and provisions for warranties, contributed negatively to the result.

2013/11/14: YOUNIQ AG publishes results for first nine months of 2013

YOUNIQ AG, the leading provider of student housing in Germany, has today published its results for the first nine months of the 2013 financial year. Various operating challenges over the course of the year and the third quarter fed through to significant charges to earnings.
