Primonial REIM annonces the signing of a sale and leaseback agreement to acquire 20 senior care facilities in Germany from EQT INFRASTRUCTURE
Primonial REIM has announced the signing of a sale-and-leaseback agreement on behalf of SCPI PRIMOVIE with the Charleston group to acquire a portfolio of 20 senior care facilities in Germany from EQT Infrastructure.
The portfolio of 20 assets located across six German states, includes 1830 beds, 38 adult day care slots, and 48 apartments over a total surface area of about 120,000m2.
The establishments will be fully leased for 25 years to Charleston, a German private provider of senior care and assistance services.
Transfer of ownership is subject to the fulfilment of conditions precedent.
Grégory Frapet, Chairman of the Primonial REIM Executive Board, said: “We are delighted to sign this sales agreement, which will allow Primonial REIM, the European leader in healthcare and educational real estate, to expand its footprint in Germany. This agreement with the Charleston group, a major private healthcare operator in Germany, illustrates our strategy of assisting tenant-operators in their real estate challenges through the solid long-term relationship that Primovie will have.”
This agreement is being signed at the same time as the one between EQT Infrastructure and KOS, under which KOS will acquire all of the Charleston’s operating assets, which, to date include 47 medicated senior care homes.
In this acquisition, Primonial REIM was advised on the legal and tax issues of the acquisition by Clifford Chance, on technical issues by TA Europe, and by eRE (element Real Estate).
