Bankia is going to start a sales process for a portfolio of rental properties with a market value of €450 million, reports Reuters, citing two sources familiar with the operation.
The entity chaired by José Ignacio Goirigolzarri expects the interested groups to present their non-binding offers over the summer, so as to finalise the process with definitive offers from September onwards, indicates one of the sources.
This portfolio of rental properties forms part of the €4.9 billion in assets and loans foreclosed during the crisis that Bankia is trying to eliminate from its balance sheet.
At the end of March, Bankia had a gross exposure of around €16.6 billion on its balance sheet comprising non-performing loans and assets. The bank’s objective is to reduce its non-performing assets by around €9 billion.
