  • Two office buildings, located in Duisburg and occupied by Deutsche Bahn AG, sold for c. EUR 95 million

Frankfurt am Main, 19 December 2019. DIC Asset AG (ISIN: DE000A1X3XX4), one of Germany's leading listed property companies, just sold two office properties from its Commercial Portfolio to the Continental Long Lease Strategy (CELLS) Fund from Aviva Investors.

Both administrative buildings, located at Hansastrasse 15 and Königsberger Allee 28, respectively, are tenant-occupied by Deutsche Bahn AG. The two properties with a combined floor area of around 28,700 sqm were part of the proprietary portfolio (Commercial Portfolio) of DIC Asset AG since 2007. For both properties a combined selling price of c. EUR 95 million was achieved which leads to profits of c. EUR 28 million above balance sheet value. The transfer of possession, rights and obligations is expected to take place before year-end 2019.

"The two sales in Duisburg mark the continuation of our portfolio optimisation strategy as we have achieved our sales target for the year with a total volume of EUR 226 million. The transaction prices achieved across all segments in the fiscal year 2019 top the most recently in December 2018 appraised fair market values by around 28% on average," commented Johannes von Mutius, Head of Investments at DIC Asset AG.

On the seller side, the sales process was exclusively facilitated by CBRE GmbH.
