Hansteen is selling its German and Dutch portfolios for €1.28bn to a joint venture of Blackstone and M7. The purchase price exceeds the portfolio values as of late 2016 by €76mn or 6 %. German assets (primarily logistics) account for €974.3mn of the purchase price. At the end of the year, Hansteen valued its 100 German properties at €887.5mn, at a rental yield of 7.4 %. The portfolio totals 1.56 million sqm and is 90 % leased. A transaction is still pending for the purchase of further German properties worth €14mn, which will then also go to Blackstone/M7.
