Frankfurt am Main, 24 May 2018. DIC Asset AG, one of Germany's leading listed property companies, just acquired an office property in Leverkusen-Mitte that is fully occupied on a long-term lease for the price of c. EUR 51 million, the property being earmarked for the company's Commercial Portfolio. The office building, which was completed in early 2018, covers a gross lettable area of around 13,300 square metres and includes 301 parking spots. The building's anchor tenant, the pronova BKK, one of Germany's largest health insurance companies, moved into the building shortly after its completion, pooling c. 640 employees from Cologne, Leverkusen and Remscheid in this new location. The weighted average lease term (WALT) is 16.76 years. The property was sold by the project developer Landmarken AG, with whom the cooperation in the negotiations was very confidently and constructive.

"Leverkusen is a city with economic potential, and therefore goes very well with the strategic alignment of our Commercial Portfolio. The objective we are pursuing with the acquisition of the property is to supplement the portfolio with optimal yield opportunities and to boost its growth. It is here that we benefit from our sound regional market access. The next acquisitions are already in the pipeline," said Sonja Wärntges, CEO of DIC Asset AG.

The acquisition in Leverkusen was facilitated by BNP Paribas Real Estate.
