Real estate activities of the HORNBACH Group

The HORNBACH Group uses retail properties with surfaces totaling 1,888,545 m² as DIY stores with garden centers.The HORNBACH Group has an overriding strategy of ensuring that – measured in terms of sales areas and also accounting for potential sale and leaseback transactions – it owns at least half of the real estate used for operating purposes. At the balance sheet date on February 29, 2020, this share amounted to around 60 % (2018/19: 59 %). The remaining 40 % (2018/19: 41 %) of sales areas (including finance leases) are rented from third parties (38 %). In individual cases (2 %), only the land has been leased (hereditary lease). In addition, HORNBACH Immobilien AG and HORNBACH Baumarkt AG both hold a number of purchase options entitling them to acquire further land at first-class locations in Germany and abroad. Moreover, group companies also already own pieces of land in Germany and abroad which are earmarked for use as retail locations.
