ACQUISITION OF A 25% INTEREST IN A RETAIL PORTFOLIO IN FRANCE
Resilient has reached agreement with Wereldhave Retail France SAS (“WRF”) on the acquisition of a 25% interest in
four French shopping centres (the “portfolio”). Lighthouse Capital will own the other 75% interest.
Resilient’s purchase consideration amounts to c. EUR76,25 million and related working capital on the effective date
of 30 September 2021 (the “acquisition”). Resilient may implement the acquisition directly or via a newly
incorporated entity in France.
The shopping centres are situated in growing regions in northern France and in cities that will continue to benefit
from urbanisation. The strategy is to strengthen the dominance of the retail centres.
The estimated yield for these properties of 8,1% is based on the projected net operating income for the 2022
calendar year and no estimated rental value is attributed to the vacant gross lettable area (“GLA”) acquired.
The acquisition will be conditional on Resilient obtaining the necessary exchange control approval and WRF
supervisory board approval. Transfer will take place on the effective date.
