Hemfosa will acquire ten properties from Fem Hjärtan Holding AB, totaling approximately 57,800 sqm, all of which are very centrally located in Halmstad. Most of the portfolio comprises office properties housing tenants in the community services sector, and 66 percent of the portfolio’s total rental income is generated from public-sector tenants. The three largest tenants are the Municipality of Halmstad, the Swedish Tax Agency and Halmstad County Administrative Board, which jointly represent 38 percent of rental income.
The total property value is EUR 109M. The average remaining lease is 2 years and the leasing rate is approximately 90 percent. Possession is scheduled for September 1, 2017.
“We are delighted that Hemfosa is now making another major portfolio acquisition containing a high number of community service properties in Sweden. These properties have prime locations in Halmstad, a town that is growing and evolving and it’s a location that we want to expand in. We see many opportunities for developing these properties by increasing leasing to more public-sector operations and the properties also comprise land areas that could be used for new build projects. All in all, it represents a perfect transaction for Hemfosa,” says Stina Lindh Hök, Head of Transactions at Hemfosa.
