HAMBORNER REIT AG invests further funds from capital increase: Purchase agreement signed for "Westoria Gießen" retail centre
Duisburg, 06 August 2015 - HAMBORNER REIT AG can report another successful acquisition of a highly profitable retail property that fits its strategy. Shortly following completion of the capital increase in early July and the subsequently announced acquisition of the "Hornschuch-Center" in Fürth (worth approx. EUR 31 million), HAMBORNER signed a purchase agreement for an additional retail centre in Gießen worth approx. EUR 32 millon.
The "Westoria Gießen", which has a rental area of around 18,000 square metres, is located around four kilometres to the west of Gießen's city centre in an established commercial area. It is a modern retail centre with an appealing mix of tenants and an inviting mall, which covers mainly the local amenities for the area's population. A total of 16 shop units are integrated in the property, which has been established for more than 30 years. The anchor tenants are a real hypermarket and a Saturn electronic goods store.
The average remaining term of leases is around seven years, the gross initial yield is 7.3%. The property is being sold by a property company of the pan-European retail fund Herald, which is managed by TH Real Estate. TH Real Estate's consultants for the transaction were CBRE and the lawyers of Franzen Steinhardt Wehle.
