Why invest in Hansteen

Add Intro Text Here

We target two types of investments, one that provides a high yield, the other that, although lower yielding, offers the potential for capital growth through intense asset management initiatives. We seek to produce sustainable growth in our rental income and occupancy, which should lead to increased values. We then aim to realise and distribute the profits to our shareholders.

How we generate shareholder value

Disciplined investment

We select our investments based on a thorough assessment of the opportunities in order to create a high yielding portfolio with potential to add value. Our balance sheet is strong and we remain committed to financing on a prudent basis.

Diverse portfolio

Our property portfolio is spread across several European countries, primarily in Germany and the UK. We have more than 5,300 tenants from a wide range of business sectors, none of which accounts for more than 1.5% of the annual rent roll.

Industry expertise

Our people are at the centre of our success. We have 16 offices with experienced management teams across the UK and our regions in Continental Europe. We work hard at creating the right relationships with our tenants and other stakeholders so that we are in the prime position to act when opportunities arise.

Dividend growth

Our board is committed to a prudently progressive dividend policy reflecting the strong and growing cash flow generated by the business. We have paid a covered dividend every year since the first dividend distribution in 2006 and during that period, the dividend has increased by 75%.

Shares in Issue and Total Voting Rights

There are 745,727,907 ordinary shares of 10p each in issue.  The Company currently holds 1,375,225 ordinary shares of 10 pence each in treasury therefore the total number of voting rights in issue in the Company is 744,352,682.

The figure of 744,352,682 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

There are 20,179,625 ordinary shares owned by the directors and therefore not in public hands, representing 2.71% of the total voting rights in issue.

How we manage these risks:

Investment appraisal

We have a clearly-defined framework for capital and development expenditure and subsequent on-going appraisals
