HAMBORNER REIT AG: Portfolio value of around EUR 500 million - Handover of new E-Center in Freiburg
Duisburg, 3 November 2011 - HAMBORNER REIT AG has added a further property to its books. Following a construction phase of around twelve months, the E-Center acquired in Freiburg last year was today - several months earlier than originally planned - declared open in a ceremony by EDEKA, thereby meeting the last requirements for its addition to the HAMBORNER portfolio. An existing EDEKA supermarket at the same location was demolished and replaced by a new building with total usable space of around 4,000 square metres. The property has a gross initial yield of around 7.5%; the lease has a term of 18 years plus options. The seller was EDEKA Grundstücksverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH. The transaction was already notarised on 10 May 2010 with a purchase price of around EUR11.4 million.
The portfolio of HAMBORNER REIT AG therefore currently has a value of around EUR500 million. It also has signed agreements in place for an OBI DIY store in Aachen and the state-of-the-art office property 'NuOffice' in Munich with a total additional volume of approximately EUR55 million. These properties are currently under construction and will be transferred to the company on completion in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
