26 October 2020, Madrid– SILICIUS Real Estate, SOCIMI specialised in the management of rental properties focusing on long term and stable income streams, has closed a €19,7 million capital increase operation after acquiring Ibérica Inmobiliaria through a merger by absorption. SILICIUS has three new assets in its portfolio: two retail parks in Parque Oeste, Alcorcón, and Las Matas building, all located in Madrid.
SILICIUS has notarised the capital increase approved by its shareholders in the meeting held last July. The final capital increase results in €19,7 million. The increase is aimed at the continuation of the investment plan set out in the Company´s Business Plan. With this operation, SILICIUS has 4 new shareholders that are part of the company and rely on its business plan.
“Despite the current situation, we do not forget our aim of growth. This operation and those to come are the right steps that will help us achieve our goal prior to quotation, adding new shareholders who believe in our long-term project and who contribute with assets that fit our investment policy” says Juan Diaz de Bustamante. SILICIUS has diversified both the types and location of its assets.
In the current context provoked by the COVID-19 pandemic, SILICIUS continues with its business plan, generating confidence among all its groups of interest: It has reached agreements with 90% of its tenants on the payment of the rents through extensions or writing off the debt and has also incorporated new assets to its portfolio.
