11 February 2019 – Eje Prime

Olimpo Real Estate (Ores) is establishing itself in the market. The Socimi owned by Bankinter and Sonae Sierra closed last year with a portfolio comprising 34 assets worth €357.4 million. In this way, the company has doubled the valuation of its assets since the end of October 2017, a few months after it made its debut on the stock market. At that time, the firm held a total of 16 investments worth €172.6 million.

At the end of 2018, the value of the Socimi’s portfolio amounted to €357.4 million across 34 assets, comprising mainly hypermarkets (28.5%) and supermarkets (14.7%), retail parks (15.2%) and out-of-town stores (14.4%), as well as premises (8%) located on the main streets of large cities.

During the last four months of 2018, four investment operations were undertaken for a total value of €27.5 million. Specifically, the firm completed the purchase of two supermarkets, an out-of-town store in Santander and a commercial premise in Vigo.

“These operations are in line with Ores’ investment strategy, in urban locations in Spain’s main cities, and with first-class operators as tenants and long-term and stable lease contracts”, said the company in a statement sent to the Alternative Investment Market (MAB).

Ores is a company whose main activity is the acquisition and management of commercial real estate assets, both in Spain and Portugal. The company was created in December 2016 by Bankinter and Sonae Sierra, made its stock market debut at the end of February 2017 and has been increasing its investments and assets ever since.
