Mannesmann Plastics Machinery GmbH Completes €113 Million Sale Leaseback of Three Facilities in Germany

SEGRO Web Site - December 21, 2007

SEGRO has agreed a sale and leaseback with MPM (Mannesmann Plastics Machinery) on three industrial sites in Germany, at Munich, Nuremberg and Hanover. The leaseback is for a minimum term of 15 years and the transaction represents a net initial yield of 7.1%, this yield will increase with indexation. The value of the Munich site is approximately two thirds of this portfolio and marks SEGRO’s first move into this target market.

MPM is leading in the production of machines for the plastics and rubber compounding and processing industries. The company was split out of Mannesmann following its purchase by Vodafone in 2000.

The Munich site comprises 130,649 sq m of production / logistics space and 23,488 sq m of offices on 24.1 ha of land and is made up of a campus of high quality construction workspace units. This high potential site is well located to the northwest of the city within the motorway ring and within easy access of an important S-Bahn train station link. Part of the site, about 30,000 sq m, is sublet to a third party on a lease. As well as providing 15 years of secured income at an attractive yield SEGRO will be able to generate additional returns by building out parts of the site for future occupation by MPM. As well as opportunities on the site sublet to a third party when their lease expires, SEGRO will potentially be able with MPM to secure commercial zoning rights for adjoining land.

The sites at Hanover and Nuremberg respectively comprise 28,772 sq m of built area on 7.3ha of land and 31,669 sq m of built area on 5.1 ha of land. Both sites are in attractive suburban locations and will become part of SEGRO’s portfolio of trading properties.

(Note: In March of the year, MPM completed a simmilar sale leaseback transaction involving three facilities in the US.) Sphere: Related Content
