Adveo is continuing with its divestments. The Spanish wholesale group, which specialises in office equipment and services, has put four warehouses up for sale, three of which are located in Spain, through which it hopes to raise €40 million.
The domestic assets are located in Madrid, País Vasco and La Rioja, whilst the fourth asset is located in Belgium. The proceeds from the divestment will be used to continue reducing the debt, according to sources at the company, whose liabilities amount to €190 million. The objective of the company is to reduce that figure by €10 million in 2018, according to Expansión.
In January, Adveo completed another sale in France. On that occasion, the group sold a warehouse to the company IDI Gazeley for €8 million, which, by virtue of the contract, is going to lease the logistics centre to the French subsidiary of the Spanish company.
All of these operations form part of the Strategic Plan for 2017-2029 designed by the group, which seeks to transform the company into “a service platform with logistics solutions adapted to the new reality of the business”, according to the company.
