The vehicle has also announced it is formalising an SPA to deploy an additional €14M into the Spanish property market. The Spanish REIT is owned by KKR, Altamar and Grupo Elix who acts as real estate developer.
Elix VRS was listed on the 17th of July with a share price of €0.95 and is currently trading 15% up since IPO as at market close yesterday. The fund has 25 projects in its pipeline (6 re-developments and 19 refurbishments) in Madrid and Barcelona.
