GBS Finance Advises Árima on the €245 Million Takeover Bid Launched by JSS

GBS Finance has acted as the financial advisor to Árima Real Estate in the friendly takeover bid (OPA) launched by JSS Real Estate, valued at 245 million euros. This transaction represents a 39% premium over the closing price of Árima’s shares on the day prior to the announcement.

The operation generated a significant revaluation of Árima’s shares, highlighting the robustness and attractive valuation of the company in the real estate market. The OPA was formulated at a price of 8.61 euros per share, a figure that has driven a 34% increase in Árima’s stock price on the Continuous Market.

Details of the Operation

The proposal from JSS Real Estate, controlled by the Swiss bank J. Safra Sarasin, does not require notification to the European Commission or the National Commission on Markets and Competition (CNMC), and is exempt from the Government’s anti-takeover shield as it does not involve any critical infrastructure.
