Paris, France, 2018-Oct-29 — /Travel PR News/ — AccorHotels announced today (October 25, 2018) the successful closing of the acquisition of the “Tour Sequana” building, its head office since 2016 located near Paris in Issy-Les-Moulineaux, for an amount of EUR 363 million. This amount had been determined in 2015, at the signing of the lease contract, which included a call option. The building is currently valued at more than EUR 500 million.
The transaction is financed by a EUR 300 million 8-year Green Mortgage Loan, which carries an annual coupon of 1.8%. Established in line with Green Loan Principles, the Green Mortgage Loan benefits from a Second Opinion by the extra-financial rating agency Sustainalytics. The Sequana Tower benefits from a high level of HQE™ certification.
The balance of the acquisition price was paid in cash. The acquisition will notably translate into savings of about EUR 20 million per annum in rental charge.
