BME Group announces that it has divested twelve excess real estate assets of its Swiss Operating Company ‘BMS’ (Building Materials Suisse) to five buyers, consisting of HIAG, Swissroc Industrial Opportunities, Orllati Real Estate, IBOR and Weibel. The divestment will further enable BMS to deliver on its strategic roadmap while maximizing efficiency throughout its organization.
As part of the ongoing review of its footprint and real estate portfolio, BMS identified 12 properties with redevelopment potential, which are no longer required for its operation or required in a different configuration. Of the twelve divested assets, BMS has entered into long term lease agreements for five of the assets with two of the buyers (HIAG and Swissroc). Both buyers will invest significantly in selected sites, allowing BMS to optimize its footprint and further improve its service offering to customers.
Total gross proceeds of the divestments are CHF 94.5 million and the agreements were signed before end of March 2021. Advisors to BMS are CBRE (Real Estate), Lenz & Staehelin (Legal) and Ernst & Young (Tax).
