CMS advised Senioren-Wohnen Holding GmbH on the deal.

Senioren-Wohnen Holding GmbH has sold a real estate portfolio comprising twelve retirement homes to a subsidiary of French asset management company Primonial. Five properties are already operational, while seven others are still at the project planning stage, making this a forward transaction. At the same time, advita Pflegedienst GmbH signed long-term leases for all twelve properties, covering a total rental area of 57,550 sq m. The transaction is thus structured as a sale-and-leaseback. The transaction is currently awaiting approval from the French financial regulator. The parties agreed not to disclose any further details of the transaction.
