2017-02-24

In a deal with Castellum, Klövern acquires 9 properties in Mölndal and Partille, and divests all of Klövern’s 14 properties in Borås. Transfer of possession will be on 1 April 2017.

The underlying property value of the acquired properties amounts to SEK 498 million. The underlying property value of the divested properties amounts to SEK 478 million, which is in line with book value.

The properties in Mölndal and Partille have a total lettable area of around 38,000 sq.m., primarily offices, and a rental value of SEK 42 million. Four properties are located in Mölndal and five properties are located in Partille, close to Klövern’s properties in each respective market.

After the divestment of the 14 properties in Borås, Klövern will not own any properties in Borås. The properties have a total lettable area of around 81,000 sq.m. and a rental value of SEK 54 million.
