Duisburg, 22 June 2011 - HAMBORNER REIT AG is keeping its promise for growth. Just last week the company signed a purchase agreement for a DIY store in Aachen and now it signed the contract for a further property that fits its strategy. The retail property with total rental space of around 5,000 m² leased to the drugstore chain operator Müller was built in 1973, comprehensively renovated in 2008/2009 and is situated in a prime location in Offenburg's pedestrianised zone. The purchase price is EUR7.9 million and the gross initial rate of return 6.6%.
HAMBORNER REIT AG was adviced by the Munich broker Pareal. On the sellers side Cordea Savills GmbH, Munich and CMS Hasche Sigle, Stuttgart, were operating as consultants. Cordea Savills German Retail Fund, with an investment volume of approx. EUR 300 million was launched in 2007 by Luxembourgian law and is focused on German retail objects.
By acquiring this property in Offenburg in addition to the contracts already signed for properties in Langenfeld and Aachen, HAMBORNER has already signed purchase agreements for around EUR41 million this year. Four properties with a total value of approximately EUR58 million have also been added to the books in 2011. Further purchases are being examined.
The company still intends to grow in the three asset classes of large-area retail, office and high street, and plans to achieve a total portfolio value of around EUR500 million by the end of 2011 (currently around EUR435 million).
