Pérez-Llorca advises Ziloti on Santader´s €152m takeover bid for Uro Property

Pérez-Llorca has advised Ziloti Holding on its agreement with Santander to purchase a stake in Uro Property from Ziloti for €152 million

Banco Santander has closed an agreement with Ziloti Holding to acquire an additional 84.66% of the capital of Uro Property, the company that owns 692 bank branches that the bank occupies on a rental basis. Santander owns 14.96% of Uro Property and now controls 99.62%. The agreement to acquire Uro from Ziloti Holding at a price of €40.046 per share, represents a disbursement of €152.5 million. At the same time, the bank has launched a purchase offer for the remaining shares of the company, 0.38%.

The amount yields a 6.4% premium compared to the €37.36 per share at which the socimi (Real Estate investment trust) closed the session the day before on the Alternative Stock Market (MAB) and which involves valuing 100% of the firm around €180 million.
