Pandox will receive net proceeds of MEUR 13.6 after deduction of deferred tax. The transaction will close and the property will be vacated 1 December, 2015.
“When our partner Scandic decided to not extend the lease agreement for the hotel property, it was a natural step for Pandox to explore various options, including a divestment. We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Van Der Valk to divest the hotel”, says Anders Nissen, CEO at Pandox.
