The takeover of German living has given vonovia book further boost. In the first half of 2022, Vonovia was able to increase the operational profit (FFO), primarily by this step by 36 percent to 1.06 billion euros, as the real estate giant announced on Wednesday. In the first six months, sales climbed by almost 35 percent to 3.1 billion euros.
The bottom line was that the profit decreased by a third to almost 1.8 billion euros due to the significantly sunken share price of the Adler Group.

The rent in the group rose to an average of 7.44 euros per square meter at the end of June - that was two percent more than a year earlier.
