Milan, November 3rd, 2010 – At today's meeting, the Board of Directors of Prelios (formerly Pirelli RE) examined and approved the interim management statement at September 30th, 2010.
All the key performance indicators in the first nine months of 2010 have continued to report a major improvement on the same period in 2009. In terms of operating results, EBIT is €24.9 million (-€8.9 million in the first nine months of 2009), while EBIT from service activities has climbed to €14.1 million (-€0.5 million in the same period of 2009). In light of these results, the Company confirms all its EBIT and other financial targets forecast for the end of 2010.
During the period under review the shareholders of Pirelli & C resolved to separate the Company from the Pirelli Group; this separation came into effect on October 25th, as a result of which the Company has changed its name from Pirelli RE to Prelios. This operation lays the terrain for creating a real estate-centric platform that is also more flexible for the purposes of future acquisitions, consistent with the business model's repositioning in pure real estate management, and that might arise from opportunities offered by the current process of real estate market consolidation.
