Echo Investment announces profitable growth strategy

TAG'S: ECHO, Developers (Real Estate)


Focusing on development activity in Poland and building dominant position in its office, retail and housing retail sectors, are the main pillars of Echo Investment profitable growth strategy for next years. The result will be regular dividend payment for the company’s shareholders.
- Last year, the company found a new shareholder and this means a brand new philosophy – the company CEO Nicklas Lindberg told journalists. –  From being an investment and developing company, we turn into a pure developer. We will build, lease and sell our projects, instead of creating a portfolio of leasable properties, as we did before. That will ensure faster capital turnover, higher rates of return and, as a result, regular dividend payout for our shareholders.
Echo Investment will focus on Polish real estate market, with a goal to build the dominant position in office, retail and residential property segment.
-We want to increase our market share in each sector of our activity, with simultaneous profit generation – Mr. Lindberg added. – This is how we understand profitable growth principle.
Echo’s CEO also added that one way to increase the profitability is to strengthen the company’s construction division which will allow better control of costs, quality and security on sites.
-We are going to implement our own investments as well as provide – at market prices – developing, leasing and consulting services for our main shareholder – Griffin Estate Group – said Echo’s CEO.

In the first half of 2016, the company’s consolidated revenue rose to PLN 280.5 million vs. PLN 273,8 million in 1H 2015. During the same period, the gross sales profit increased to PLN 145,4 million, from PLN 135 million in a corresponding period of last year; the operational profit rose to PLN 404 million, from PLN 31,1 million in 1H of 2015. Echo Investment posted consolidated profit of PLN 229 million versus PLN 22,7 million last year.

In 2016, the company, for the first time in its history, earmarked PLN 2,175 billion for the dividend payout. That translates to the dividend of PLN 5,27 per share.
