Why this deal should be considered for the award:











In June 2014 SEGRO, acting on behalf of SELP, acquired €100 mln of prime logistics assets in Poland. The portfolio includes three assets in Poland totalling 171,000 sq m, situated on the outskirts of Warsaw, Lodz and Poznan, all established locations for SEGRO. This acquisition, being part of larger pan-European transaction (the other assets located in Germany and France), underlines SEGRO’s strategy of building scale and expanding its presence in its target Continental European logistics markets. The off-market acquisition of this significant portfolio, just few months after the creation of SELP, has increased the joint venture’s position in some of the best logistics markets in Europe by almost 50 per cent. The assets have delivered an attractive income yield from modern, flexible buildings and strong covenants.
