AROUNDTOWN CONTINUES STRONG DISPOSAL ACTIVITY AND ANNOUNCES FINAL COMPOSITION OF MANAGEMENT BODY FOLLOWING MERGER WITH TLG
29 October 2020.
Following the successful execution of its disposal pipeline, Aroundtown (the "Company" or "AT") increased the year-to-date signed disposal volume to ca. €1.9 billion ("Disposals"). In addition, the Company is in advanced negotiations for additional disposals in the amount of half a billion Euro.
The Disposals have been sold through numerous transactions and at a profit above book value and a net rent multiple of 18x. The Disposals are mainly retail and wholesale properties which are mainly located in various locations across Germany. Disposals of non-core properties above book value increase the overall portfolio's quality through the increased focus on top tier cities. The proceeds of the disposals are increasing the Company's liquidity, support debt repayments and the highly accretive share buyback which is being executed at a significant discount to the Company's net asset value and is thus creating accretive shareholder value.
Further, it is hereby announced that following the merger with TLG, the nomination of Mr. Barak Bar-Hen as Aroundtown's Co-CEO and COO and Mr. Klaus Krägel as CDO (Chief Development Officer) became effective.
