DekaBank has arranged and underwritten a £55,137,500 loan facility on behalf of four special purpose vehicles (SPVs) owned by Hines Global Income Trust. The loan proceeds were used to finance the acquisition of a solus logistics unit in Wakefield, and to release equity out of three unencumbered solus logistics units in Avonmouth, Milton Keynes and Edinburgh which were acquired in 2019.
The Hines Global Income Trust UK Logistics Portfolio comprises of 832,495 sq ft of modern logistics space situated in strategically important locations across the UK. The portfolio is fully let with a weighted average lease term of more than 10 years.
This financing again demonstrates the capabilities of the bank, arranging a fully underwritten financing solution, secured against prime logistics assets despite challenging market conditions. DekaBank will continue to seek opportunities to provide new loan financings for key clients on well leased commercial real estate.
