Deutsche Bank Buys Diagonal Mar For €493M
10 August 2016 – Expansión
Deutsche Asset Management’s real estate investment division for Iberia, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bank, has confirmed its purchase of the Diagonal Mar shopping centre in Barcelona for €493 million.
Although the final price has been adjusted downwards with respect to the non-binding offer presented by the entity (which valued the asset at €505 million), it still exceeds the €451 million that Intu Properties paid for Puerto Venecia (Zaragoza) and the €375 million that Klépierre spent on the acquisition of Plenilunio (Madrid).
The operation also generates significant capital gains for Northwood, which acquired the property from the Irish bad bank Nama for €150 million in 2015. CBRE has advised this operation on the sell-side, whilst Deloitte advised the buy-side. (…).
