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.

Cibus is a real estate company listed on Nasdaq First North in Stockholm with FNCA Sweden AB as Certified Adviser.

An additional 6% of the properties are let to other daily-goods operators like Lidl, Halpa- Halli or independent grocers.
"Since the listing of Cibus, we have been working with a clear vision of growing the business through further acquisitions. In July, Cibus made its first add-ons by acquiring three properties in Finland. After the reporting period, six more assets were acquired. These acquisitions have increased the cash flow of the company and support our goal of providing our investors with a long-term, stable and high return. Cibus's first dividend payment was made after the end of the reporting period in October. Going forward, dividends will be paid quarterly." Comments from Patrick Gylling, chairman of the board.
