Foncière des Régions, via Immeo AG, signed a purchase agreement for a portfolio of 3,400 residential units located in Berlin and in Dresden for approximately €240 million, fees and taxes included (€144 million, Group share).
It represents an average value of about €1,200/m². Generating €15 million of annualized rent, this portfolio will generate an immediate gross yield of 6.3%.
This acquisition, which should be finalized by late July 2014, will be financed in part through bank debt and in part through a capital increase of Immeo AG.
With this transaction, Foncière des Régions confirms its strategy to strengthen its positioning on the German residential sector. A promising market in terms of residential property, Germany has value creation potential which is reflected in the regular increase of rents at constant scope and capital gains in the long term. Operating in this market since 2005 with a high-quality local team, Foncière des Régions aims to diversify the geographic location of its operations by strengthening its presence in dynamic and attractive cities, such as Berlin, Dresden and Leipzig.
