Both Victoria Park and Trianon will finance the acquisition with existing cash and by raising new loans, in accordance with company policies.

The acquired company will, after possession, be divided and Victoria Park and Trianon will consolidate their respective parts. Victoria Park will be a long-term owner of almost 300 flats and Trianon of just over 400 flats. The property value is broken down into MSEK 462 (EUR 47M) for Trianon’s share, corresponding to approximately SEK 16,900 (EUR 1,700) per square metre, with an average residential rent of about SEK 1,350 (EUR 136) per square metre.

We are delighted to conduct this acquisition together with Victoria Park. It will strengthen the continued development process in the area,” says Trianon’s CEO Olof Andersson.
