Tomas de Vargas Machuca ADLER's Co-CEO said: "The disposal of our non-core residential units is a key milestone towards achieving our year end goals and fulfilling what was announced to investors earlier this year. We have worked relentlessly to ensure we could achieve this by FY 2018 and will continue to do so in order to ensure the remaining non-core assets can be sold to Benson Elliott Capital Management, within the year as well."
Maximilian Rienecker, Co-CEO of ADLER Real Estate AG added: "At the end of the year, ADLER will have further improved key metrics such as its EBITDA margin and continue to improve on its Interest Coverage Ratio."
