Please say why this deal should be considered for the award Panattoni assets are in high demand due to their full commercialization rate, high quality and standing of clients. The industrial sector is in high demand by the investment vehicles. 2.5 bn euro has been invested over the last 24 months in Polish logistics real estate through Panattoni’s newly-built warehouses. In addition, some Panattoni developed properties, predominantly BTS, have been traded as secondary transactions outside of Panattoni programs. E.g. an Amazon 160 000 sqm Fulfilment Centre in Szczecin, developed by Panattoni for one of its institutional clients-investors, was recently sold on the secondary market to Korean investors. Panattoni's plans for the up-coming three years are even more ambitious, and that will be possible thanks to the acceleration of projects targeted at Internet sales, as well as the ongoing strategy of the developer's expansion in Europe
