In a real estate market impacted by rising interest rates, Covivio has adapted quickly, notably through €720 million in new disposal agreements. Meanwhile, recurring net income rose, driven by asset management transactions and a +6.4% increase in like-for-like revenues. In 2024, we will maintain our financial discipline while pursuing growth in recurring results.- CHRISTOPHE KULLMANN, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, COVIVIO
