“The disposal of Lade is a natural step in our strategy to refine our Nordic portfolio, focusing on grocery-anchored shopping centres in urban crosspoints. This is our first divestment in Norway following the acquisition of the Norwegian business in the summer 2015. We will reinvest the proceeds from our divestments in developments and extensions of existing assets”, says Marcel Kokkeel, Chief Executive Officer at Citycon.
