With the present announcement we are releasing the UPP Olaines OÜ audited consolidated 2020 annual report in English.
UPP Olaines OÜ (hereinafter the Company and jointly with its subsidiaries the Group) was established for the purpose of the financing, acquisition and management of the investment property Olaines Logistics Park (buildings and registered immovable). Olaines Logistics Park is located in Šarlote, Olaines County, Olaines Municipality, Latvia, cadastral reference 8080 003 0029, registered in the Olaine Land Cadastre under number 5439.
The Company was established on 24 August 2017 and it had no economic activities until 15 December 2017, when the cold storage facility of Olaines Logistics Park was acquired.
The commercial activities of the Company are not affected by seasonal factors. The commercial activities of the Company have no social or environmental impact.
The Company was established solely for the purpose of the financing, acquisition and management of Olaines Logistics Park; therefore, no strategic changes in the commercial activities of the Company have been planned.
The management does not have any information concerning trends, uncertainties, claims, obligations or events that are likely to have a significant impact on the prospects of the Company in the period following the reporting period outside the regular commercial activities of the Company.
The structure of UPP Olaines OÜ Group as at 31 December 2020 is as follows:
Bonds of UPP Olaines OÜ have been listed on the main list of the Nasdaq Tallinn Stock Exchange since 29 November 2018.
UPP Olaines OÜ is a going concern.
Impact of COVID-19 on the economic activities of the Group
Coronavirus, which started spreading all over the world at the beginning of the financial year and caused a global recession in March 2020, also reached the Baltic States, which led to the closure of borders to foreign nationals and of schools, and panic buying of convenience goods. The scope of the consequences of the recession caused by the pandemic is unclear, but there is no doubt that they will be serious.
The viral outbreak has had no direct impact on the economic activities of the Group. The virus has had an impact on the economic activities of companies that lease property to some extent, which may have an indirect impact on the Group’s performance results. The best estimate of the management board is that if the viral outbreak and the resulting recession do not worsen significantly, the impact of these circumstances on the Group’s performance results will be moderate due to the area of activities of the companies that lease property from the Group.
The total general administrative expenses of the reporting period were 151,122 (2019: 71,123) euros, which make up 5.74% (2019: 2.75%) of net lease income.
As of 31 December 2020, the Group’s total assets comprised 32,121,185 (31 December 2019: 31,675,413) euros, incl. the investment property at fair value, which comprised 97.5% (31 December 2019: 97.6%) of assets. The net debt of the Group was 23,803,960 (31 December 2019: 24,982,851) euros. The net debt was calculated as follows: Cash and cash equivalents were subtracted from the Group’s total loan and the subordinated loan received from the parent company, United Partners Property OÜ, was then subtracted from the result.
No significant events other than regular operating activities, including the timely receipt of rent and utility charges, took place from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2020.
Financial overview of the year
The Group’s net lease income in 2020 was 2,633,558 (2019: 2,589,379) euros. The increase in the net lease flow in the financial year in comparison with other financial years was caused by indexation and more efficient business activities.
The Group’s operating profit for the financial year was 2,916,384 (2019: 2,649,256) euros. The increase in operating profit in comparison with other financial years was caused by a lack of extraordinary, one-off costs in 2020, and the income from the increase in the value of investment property was significantly larger than in the reference period.
The net profit for the financial year was 1,735,650 (2019: 1,399,103) euros. The increase in the net profit was partially caused by the aforementioned reasons; in addition, during the financial year, the Group earned more income from interest rate swaps than in the previous period.
The services of an independent attested assessor are used to determine the fair value of investment property, and profit from the revaluation of property in the amount of 346,688 euros was therefore recognised during the financial year (2019: 147,000 euros).
There are no vacancies on the investment property as of the reporting date.
Events after the reporting date
Amendments to the Company’s leases
On 15 January 2021, the lease entered into with Plesko Real Estate SIA was terminated. This company leased a total of 1573 m2 of storage and administrative space in Olaines Logistics Park.
On 15 March 2021, the lease entered into with Premier Restaurants Latvija SIA was terminated. This company leased a total of 2382 m2 of storage and administrative space in Olaines Logistics Park.
On 18 January 2021, Olaines Logistics SIA entered into a five-year lease with the company NNL LV SIA. NNL LV SIA leased a total of 2663 m2 of storage and administrative space. This company offers 3PL services to renowned companies in the Baltic States, including Premia and Maxima.
On 16 April 2021, the lease entered into with Girtekos Logistika SIA was supplemented to provide them with an additional 1177 m2 of storage and administrative space.
These amendments to leases do not have a significant impact on the Group’s lease income in 2021 with the exception of the first quarter of 2021, in which the leased space was transferred and received.
Change in the structure of the logistics investments of United Partners Group OÜ
In March 2021, United Partners Group OÜ was internally restructured into a logistics investment group. The direct parent company of the Company had previously been United Partners Property OÜ, which included the housing development investments of United Partners Group OÜ. The logistics investments of United Partners Group OÜ, incl. the Company, now belong to UPP Logistics Properties OÜ, a management company completely owned by United Partners Property OÜ. The aim of restructuring was to create separate administrative units for the logistics property and housing property investments of United Partners Group OÜ.
