Aspo’s subsidiary Leipurin completes a sale and lease back transaction for its warehouse property in Gothenburg, Sweden
Aspo’s subsidiary Leipurin has completed a sale and lease back agreement for its warehouse property in Gothenburg, Sweden. The property came into Leipurin’s ownership via the Kobia acquisition that took place on 1 September 2022. The buyer of the property is Revelop, a Swedish real estate investor.
As a result of the sale and lease back transaction, Aspo recognizes a sales gain of approximately EUR 0.4 million. According to the terms of the agreement, Leipurin leases the property for five years. The transaction is close to cost neutral, as the depreciation expense of the assets owned will be replaced by depreciation and interest expense for the leased assets of similar size.
“Since the acquisition in September, we have actively explored options to sell and lease back Kobia’s properties. This is a great first step and we will continue to survey the market for similar transactions for the remaining real estate in Sweden”, says Rolf Jansson, CEO of Aspo Group.
