Belgium's Cofinimmo to lower dividend for 2014
BRUSSELS Feb 7 (Reuters) - Belgian real estate group Cofinimmo on Friday said it would pay a lower dividend for 2014, as its net rental income fell in 2013.
In 2013, the real estate company, which has a broad portfolio ranging from office buildings in the Belgian capital and nursing homes across Belgium and France, said it would pay a dividend of 5.50 euros for 2014, following 6.00 euros for 2013.
Analysts expected the group to maintain a steady dividend.
Its net rental income fell to 220.5 million euros ($299.87 million) in 2013 from 225.4 million in the previous year, as the 2012 numbers were inflated by a one-off fee paid by Belgian state-owned bank Belfius when it vacated two buildings managed by Cofinimmo.
