“Our goal has been to build a portfolio that is large enough, diversified and attractive for creating a platform for a new company focused on warehouse and light industrial properties. Together with Pareto, who raised capital from a strong group of investors, we have laid the groundwork for a new, well-needed player in this segment,” says Simon de Chateau, Partner & CIO at Alma Property Partners.
In connection to the transaction Pareto raised EUR 65 million, from primarily asset managers, foundations and high net worth individuals, on behalf of Logistri Fastighets AB.
“We are pleased to establish a light industrial scheme including high yielding real estate and long leases. The portfolio is diversified with well positioned tenants in market leading positions. Light industrial is an interesting sector where we believe we can find strong cash flow and growth combined,’’ says Ulf Attebrant, CEO at Logistri.
Cederquist and EY acted adviser to the buyer and Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton to the seller.
