EYEMAXX completes sale of Sonnenhöfe / Largest transaction in company history / Selling price exceeds expectations at start of project Aschaffenburg, 6 December 2018 - EYEMAXX Real Estate AG (General Standard; ISIN DE000A0V9L94; "EYEMAXX") has notarized the contract for the sale of the entire major project "Sonnenhöfe" in Schönefeld near Berlin and thus successfully completed the largest transaction in the company's history to date. Consequently, the advanced negotiations for the forward sale announced in the ad hoc disclosure dated 27 September 2018 have now been contractually finalised. In addition, EYEMAXX and its project partner DIE Deutsche Immobilien Entwicklungs AG have achieved a purchase price that has exceeded the initial expectations. The purchaser is a group of major institutional investors. A not inconsiderable advance payment on the purchase price will be made in the near future. The remaining purchase price will be paid in line with the construction phases. It has been agreed not to disclose further details concerning the buyer and the purchase price. The consultant of the investors is Collineo Asset Management.
The contract stipulates that over the next three years, EYEMAXX will be responsible for the construction of the new 18-storey building on the site of around 51,000 square metres, the buyer is responsible for the respective letting and marketing of the properties. The construction company ZÜBLIN has been commissioned as the prime contractor for the project with fixed construction prices. A total of around 560 apartments with living space of over 38,000 square metres, approx. 11,400 square metres of office space, 1,200 square metres of retail space, two underground car parks and around 700 parking spaces are to be built. Construction work started in July 2018 and is going according to plan.
The "Sonnenhöfe" project is one of EYEMAXX's largest real estate developments, alongside the "Vivaldi-Höfe", also in Berlin-Schönefeld and the "Postquadrat" in Mannheim. Together they account for a volume of more than EUR 500 million. In order to execute the "Sonnenhöfe" project EYEMAXX has formed a joint venture, in which it holds a 50.1% interest, together with DIE Deutsche Immobilien Entwicklungs AG.
Dr. Michael Müller, EYEMAXX Real Estate AG's CEO explained: "We are very pleased that we have now been able to contractually seal the sale of the entire project in Schönefeld. In addition, we have achieved a selling price on what is by far our company's largest deal and which exceeds our initial expectations."
Max Pasquali, Deputy CEO of the EYEMAXX Group: "The transaction once again underpins the quality of our projects, our expertise in developing major projects and our choice of location. The buyer does not pay when the project is completed, but in stages as an immediate down payment and at agreed project stages. With ZÜBLIN we have a very experienced prime contractor at our side. In addition, we can concentrate on the construction, as the buyer is taking over the letting and marketing of the properties."
