Klövern finalizes the acquisition of Globen City and Startboxen 3, initially communicated at the letter-of-intent stage on 24 January. Total lettable area amounts to around 140,000 sq. m. and consists mainly of office space. This acquisition increases Klövern’s exposure to Stockholm substantially, after the transaction the Stockholm Region will account for around 50 % of Klövern’s property value.
The total purchase price amounts to approximately SEK 3.8 billion and transfer of possession is preliminarily set at 1 April. The acquisition is subject to approval by Konkurrensverket (Swedish Competition Authority).
“The acquisition strengthens Klövern’s position in the Stockholm area substantially. Klövern is increasingly turning into a company focused on Stockholm combined with a presence in a number of strong regional cities. We believe strongly in the emerging Söderstaden as an attractive place to work with good communications”, says Klövern’s CEO Rutger Arnhult.
