NAI Baltics, acting as a seller’s representative, has successfully carried out a sale-leaseback transaction of a logistics warehouse complex in Latvia.
The international real estate consulting firm NAI Baltics in collaboration with NAI FirstPartners, the Norwegian partner of the NAI group, acting as a seller’s representative has successfully sold the newly-built logistics warehouse complex to a Norwegian investment company syndicated and managed by one of the leading Norwegian financial investment houses Orkla Finans with their cooperation partner in the Baltics.
The transaction was carried out following the sale-leaseback scheme, which means that even after the change of the real estate owners, the seller of the object, which is one of the strongest logistics service providers in Latvia, will continue to provide and expand the logistics service in the warehouse complex due to a long term lease. The sale-leaseback transaction of the complex of warehouses took place to implement the seller’s long term strategy – diverting the resources for the main business of the company: providing the logistics services.
Orkla Finans is a part of the Orkla Group, which is one of the oldest and biggest companies in Norway. This is the first investment in Latvia.
“This transaction confirms that the foreign investors are to a great extent interested in the commercial real estate market of the Baltic States. NAI collaboration partners – private as well as institutional investors and their fund operators – are searching for qualitative investment objects, that would be a successful capital investment,” stated Valdis Ligers, NAI Baltics principal.
