Cibus has today signed and completed the acquisition of an asset let to Tokmanni in Kemi (3,500 sqm) as well as the acquisition of one asset let to Lidl (2,200 sqm) and one to Halpa-Halli (5,300 sqm), both located in Saarijärvi, near Jyväskylä. The sellers were separate private developers and the combined total acquisition cost was €16.5 million.
The transactions were financed with senior debt. In conjunction with the transaction, discussions have been initiated regarding the refinancing of one of Cibus' senior-loan facilities. The refinancing of the senior facility is expected to lower the financing expenses of the portfolio as well as allow for further additional acquisitions.
"We are very happy to be able to start executing on the business plan we set out for Cibus at the time of the IPO. The acquired assets are let to leading daily-goods operators in Finland and thus fit well with the overall portfolio and have a small, but accretive effect on the cash flow of the Company." says Lisa Dominguez Flodin, CEO of Cibus Nordic Real Estate.
