ProLogis European Properties refinances Swedish Property Portfolio

Mannheimer Swartling has advised ProLogis European Properties (Euronext: PEPR) in connection with the refinancing of its portfolio of distribution facilities located in Norrköping, Örebro, and Gothenburg, Sweden. The loan, a five-year secured bank loan facility provided by Helaba (Landesbank Hessen-Thüringen), amounted to approximately €48 million and was split into two tranches of SEK 332.5 million (approximately €32.5 million) and €15.5 million.

ProLogis European Properties is Europe’s largest owner of modern distribution facilities. The transaction is a further step in achieving ProLogis European Properties' ambition to reduce short-term debt maturities, create a balanced maturity profile and decrease overall balance sheet risk.

Mannheimer Swartling’s team on finance matters was led by Zoran Stambolovski, assisted by Hans Abrahamsson and Susanne Forsberg. Due diligence was headed by Mikael Wärnsby, assisted by Malin Bengtsson.
