CapMan Real Estate sells Tokmanni's logistics centre

CapMan RE II fund sells the MREC Mäntsälä logistics centre to American Realty Capital Global Trust, Inc. ("ARC Global"). The property is entirely leased by Tokmanni - Finland's largest discount store chain.

CapMan RE II fund invested in Mäntsälä logistics centre in August 2008, when the property was completed along Helsinki-Lahti motorway in Mäntsälä. The MREC Mäntsälä logistics centre has approx. 74,400m² of lettable space and it is entirely leased with a long-term lease contract to Tokmanni.

"Tokmanni has been a great tenant. We are very pleased with our investment as well as the resulting transaction. It is a pleasure to welcome a new international operator to the Nordic real estate market," comments Kalle Myllymäki, Partner at CapMan Real Estate and responsible for the investment.

"We are extremely pleased to close this deal, which represents our first investment into the Nordic region. Working directly with CapMan facilitated a smooth acquisition process and we are looking for similar opportunities to acquire real estate with existing leases or new corporate sale and leasebacks," says Greg Smith, Head of Nordics Origination at Moor Park Capital.

CapMan RE II fund sells its entire share capital of MREC Mäntsälä logistics centre to ARC Global. The buyer is an unlisted US REIT fund, whose European operations are exclusively managed by Moor Park Capital Partners LLP.

Established in September 2006, the CapMan RE II fund has investment focus on office, retail and logistics properties in Finland. The exit does not generate carried interest income to CapMan as the CapMan RE II fund is not yet in carry.
