Superior Margins Above 40% in Recycling Ensure Increasing Value Creation at LOG as a Greenfield Asset Developer

In 2024, LOG continues to showcase the attractivity, liquidity, and strong market demand for its assets. The company's asset recycling strategy highlights its dedication to sustainable growth and substantial value generation for shareholders.

On April 19, the sale of the LOG Betim and LOG Salvador assets was finalized. These properties, with a combined gross leasable area (GLA) of 138,000 square meters, sold for a total of R$ 509.7 million, achieving a gross margin of 40.9%.

The transaction with the BTG Pactual Real Estate Investment Fund - BTLC11 reflects a warming market for real estate investment funds and the compression of cap rates. This marks the third deal with BTLC11 since its constitution in May 2023. With this acquisition, the fund now manages approximately 413,000 square meters of GLA, amounting to R$ 1.5 billion in assets.

Over the past twelve months, LOG's asset recycling strategy has amassed over R$ 1.7 billion. These sales, made at significant margins, demonstrate the company’s capability to develop high-return greenfield projects.

LOG Salvador Sale: An IRR of 27.3% Demonstrates Significant Return Potential in Asset Development

The company has completed the sale of LOG Salvador, a development comprising 87,600 square meters of GLA across three phases. The first two phases, which are fully leased, were delivered in the second and fourth quarters of 2023, respectively. The third phase is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2024.

It is important to note that the sale of the development, including a phase still under construction, over a 29-month period from land acquisition to asset sale, reflects a significant return, with an IRR of 27.3% after all taxes.

Quarterly Deliveries 100% Pre-Leased with an Average Rate of R$ 23.63, Reinforces Growing Demand for LOG's Assets

LOG is advancing towards the completion of the “Todos por 1.5” plan in 2024, with significant deliveries totaling 57,000 sqm of GLA in Q1 2024, including Log Natal and Log BH. The average ticket price for these assets reached R$ 23.63 per sqm of GLA and they were delivered 100% pre-leased.

The high level of pre-leasing, along with the low stabilized vacancy rate of 0.91%, demonstrates the Company’s ability to align supply and demand, and confirms the potential of its business model.

The 13.5% CAGR in NAV Reflects the Growth Potential and Results Generation for LOG

In 2020, LOG began a significant growth phase with the launch of the "Todos por 1.5" and "Log 2 Milhões" plans. The implementation of these strategies is set to sustainably increase the company's NAV. Starting in 2024, LOG has set a new production benchmark, aiming to deliver 500,000 square meters of GLA annually.

This delivery target ensures an increase in the company’s NAV CAGR, which from December 2019 to March 2024 was 13.5%.

The macroeconomic environment has been favorable for LOG, particularly due to the opportunities for cap rate compression. Additionally, LOG has achieved a YoC close to 13%, which facilitates increased margins in asset recycling.
