MEXICO CITY, April 20, 2023 /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, 2023. All figures included herein were prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and are stated in US dollars unless otherwise noted.

1Q 2023 Highlights

  • First quarter 2023 leasing activity reached 2.2 million sf; 1.2 million sf of which were new contracts with companies such as Polaris, DB Schenker and TLC Moka, among others, and almost 1 million sf in lease renewals. Vesta's 1Q23 total portfolio occupancy therefore increased by 130 basis points year on year, to 95.1% from 93.8% in 1Q22; stabilized occupancy increased to 96.7% from 94.3% in 1Q22 and same store occupancy increased to 96.6% from 94.1% in 1Q22.

  • Net Operating Income (NOI) increased 18.1% to US$ 47.7 million in 1Q23, compared to US$ 40.4 million in 1Q22. The 1Q23 NOI margin was 95.0%, a 120-basis-point year on year decrease due to higher costs at rent-generating properties.
  • EBITDA increased 18.6% to US$ 42.0 million in 1Q23, as compared to US$ 35.4 million in 1Q22. 1Q23 EBITDA margin was 83.7%; a 60-basis-point decrease due to an increase in long term incentive expenses reflected in a year on year increase in administrative expenses, year on year.
  • 1Q23 pre-tax funds from operations (pre-tax FFO) increased 21.6% to US$ 30.4 million, from US$ 25.0 million for the same period in 2022. Pretax FFO per share was US$ 0.0438 for the first quarter 2023, compared with US$ 0.0360 for the same period in 2022; a 21.5% increase. 1Q23 after tax FFO was US$ 9.7 million, compared to US$ 15.9 million in 1Q22. This decrease was due to higher income tax expenses from an increased higher exchange rate related current tax in 1Q23.
  • 1Q23 total comprehensive gain was US$ 59.1 million, versus US$ 55.3 million in 1Q22. This increase was primarily due to a tax benefit in 1Q23.
  • The total value of Vesta's investment property portfolio was US$ 2.79 billion as of March 31, 2023; a 2.0% increase compared to US$ 2.74 billion at the end of December 31, 2022.
