SFL's consolidated rental income rose by 10.9% to €40.4 million on 31 March, 2015 versus €36.4 million on 31 March, 2014:

- On a comparable portfolio basis, rentals increased by €2.9 million (+8.4%), mainly due to new leases signed during 2014.
- Rents on projects under development during the period in question fell by €1.1 million.
- Finally, the acquisition of the Condorcet property in December 2014 generated a increase in rental income of €2.2 million over the quarter.

SFL successfully leased almost 20,000 sq.m. of space during the first quarter of 2015, notably 9,700 sq.m. of offices that were pre-leased to Exane in the #cloud.paris building and 7,500 sq.m. in 131 Wagram under a new, 12-year, fixed-term lease with TV5 Monde. These transactions result in a nominal rent for Parisian offices of €650/sq.m. and a real rate of €550/sq.m.

The occupancy rate for revenue-generating buildings sits at 85.5% on 31 March, 2015 versus 87.1% on 31 December, 2013. The In/Out building, for which the marketing process is ongoing, accounts for 10.5% of portfolio vacancy.

Continued progress has been made on development projects throughout the quarter. Notable projects include the building at 90 Champs-Elysées, which was delivered as expected on 31 March to its principal tenant, and #cloud.paris on rue de Richelieu, which will be delivered at the end of the year and one third of which is already pre-leased.

There were no property sales or acquisitions during the first quarter of 2015.

SFL's consolidated net debt on 31 March, 2015 remained stable at €1,585 million compared to €1,572 million on 31 December, 2014. This represents a loan-to-value ratio of 33.7%.
