New Amsterdam Invest N.V. annual results and report 2023

AMSTERDAM, May 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — New Amsterdam Invest N.V. (the “Company”, or “New Amsterdam Invest”, or “NAI”), a commercial real estate company listed on Euronext Amsterdam (Euronext: NAI) , announces its annual results and report 2023, today. 

Aren van Dam, ceo New Amsterdam Invest commented:

“It is with modest pride we report on New Amsterdam Invest 2023 results. Results for 2023 are in line with expectations, be it significantly impacted by one-off costs in connection with the transition from SPAC to operational company and non-cash revaluations of investment property, resulting in a reported 2023 IFRS-based net loss.

From a commercial and operational perspective 2023 marks a milestone achievement for NAI. After the acquisition of five investment properties via a Business Combination in June 2023, in the second half year of 2023 focus changed to setting up the organization and supporting the operating performance of the group. In addition, the Company added a sixth investment property, located in the UK, to its portfolio in September. 

The total investment in our properties amounts to € 83 million (market value € 77 million), funded by our shareholders and leverage resulting in a sound Loan to Value of our portfolio of 46 percent against market value.

As management we are confident to build NAI further and to be well on track to realize the financial objectives the Company has set out at listing.”

Outlook 2024

For 2024 NAI expects to be profitable and well on track to realize the financial objectives the Company has set out at listing. More specific NAI reiterates that its current portfolio should enable it to realise a 2024 a net rental income of approximately € 7.0 million and a result before tax of € 2.5 million excluding potential impact of revaluation of investment property and or the results from the acquisition of new investment property. Naturally, operating expenses will be stable, though the Company expects to realize significant savings as a large portion of the costs in 2023 were on the account of one-off items.

Business Combination

On 2 June 2023, the Company’s shareholders approved the proposed Somerset Group Business Combination changing New Amsterdam Invest from a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (“SPAC”) in a commercial real estate company listed on Euronext Amsterdam.

The Business Combination provided NAI shareholders with an important strategic opportunity enabling NAI to pursue a growth strategy for commercial real estate investments in the UK and in the USA as well as the potential for further investments, meeting the principles set out at the 2021 IPO.

The total one-off listing costs to realize the Business Combination was € 545k and are fully recognized in the 2023 results.

Business overview 2023

The results from group companies have been included and consolidated within the Company’s results for the period from 2 June 2023 to 31 December 2023. The net rental income including service expenses charged amounts to € 4.6 million. The result before taxation for 2023 amounts to a loss of € 5.4 million. Included in this loss are one-off items of approximately € 5.7 million in total, of which the adjustment to market value of the investment property is the most significant one. This regards mainly transaction costs related to the acquisition of investment property. Furthermore, this regards expenses in relation to the Circular expenses of € 0.5 million which are mitigated by interest received on the Escrow account of the same amount.

Property portfolio

On 2 June 2023, the Company acquired the following properties via various subsidiaries:

•  Somerset House, Birmingham

•  Interra One Park Ten, Houston

•  Travelodge, Edinburgh
