Tero Estovirta, Director of Real Estate Investments at eQ Asset Management: "The transaction is a strong indicator of the functionality and activity of the market. The capital and profit gained by this transaction will be invested in new developments and acquisitions. The transaction will shape eQ Community Properties’ portfolio towards our target allocation. With the transaction, the Fund further strengthens its position as an owner and developer of larger and centrally located community properties and as a partner of public users. The number of properties in the portfolio will decrease and at the same time the unit size will increase, making the Fund's operations more efficient. Kinland, as a buyer, is a respected player as an owner of social infrastructure properties.”
Antti Pelli, Senior Director, Capital Markets, JLL Finland: “We are extremely happy to be assisting eQ in this transaction. The deal shows that social infrastructure is an asset class that continues to attract investor demand even in challenging market conditions. We are also pleased to continue building our strong track record in the healthcare market and we want to thank eQ and Kinland for a smooth transaction.”
JLL acted as commercial advisor to eQ in the transaction. Hannes Snellman acted as legal advisor to eQ.
