MEXICO CITY, April 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Corporación Inmobiliaria Vesta S.A.B. de C.V., ("Vesta", or the "Company") (BMV: VESTA), one of the leading pure-play industrial real estate companies in Mexico, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. All figures included herein were prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and are stated in US dollars unless otherwise noted.

Q1 2022 Highlights

  • Vesta's development pipeline continued to expand during the quarter; projects under construction reached 2.7 million sf in 1Q22 reflecting an estimated US$ 150.7 million of investment with a 9.9% return on cost. During the quarter Vesta increased its development pipeline by 1.3 million sf and began construction on six inventory buildings in Monterrey, Tijuana, Guadalajara and Queretaro which are regions with continued strong demand and record-low vacancy.
  • The Company increased its presence within target markets through strategically relevant land acquisitions. In Ciudad Juárez, Vesta acquired land to develop 1.25 million sf for its new Vesta Park Juárez Oriente on prime real estate located in close proximity to the commercial border crossing between Ciudad Juárez and El Paso. In Monterrey, Vesta acquired land to develop 1.35 million square feet for the Vesta Park Monterrey Apodaca Phase 2 while also securing land to ensure future expansion ahead of continued strong demand in the Monterrey area.
  • First quarter 2022 leasing activity reached 2.2 million sf. This represented 1.3 million sf in lease renewals, 821,871 sf in new contracts with existing clients and a new lease signed with Amazon. 1Q22 total portfolio occupancy therefore increased to reached 93.8%, from 90.0% in 1Q21, stabilized occupancy increased to 94.3%, from 90.6% in 1Q21, and same store occupancy increased to 94.1%, from 91.1% in 1Q21.
  • Vesta delivered strong financial results for the first quarter of the year with a 9.4% year on year revenue increase to US$ 42.0 million, from US$ 38.4 million in 1Q21. This increase is primarily due to a US$ 2.55 million inflationary impact and a US$ 4.20 million impact resulting from new revenue-generating contracts on 1Q22 results. 1Q22 NOI and EBITDA margins reached 96.2% and 84.3%, respectively.
  • In line with the Company's Level 3 Strategy, 1Q22 NAV per share increased 8.4% to US$ 2.62, from US$ 2.42 in 1Q21, while pretax FFO increased 11.7% to US$ 25.0 million compared to US$ 22.4 million in 1Q21. 1Q22 pretax FFO per share decreased 7.3% to US$ 0.0360, from US$ 0.0389 in 1Q21, due to a year on year comparison which encompassed Vesta's follow on offering at the beginning of 2021.

This decrease was due to higher taxes in 1Q22.
  • 1Q22 total comprehensive gain was US$ 55.3 million, versus US$ 13.5 million for the same quarter in 2021. This increase was primarily due to an increase in investment property valuation.
