INVL Baltic Real Estate plans dividends for shareholders and own-share acquisition

The real estate investment company INVL Baltic Real Estate plans to pay its shareholders dividends of EUR 0.09 per share for 2023. A vote on the payment of dividends will be held at the annual general meeting of the company’s shareholders on 30 April.

“Like every year, we are sticking to the company’s dividend policy of paying out at least EUR 0.09 per share and in that way sharing the profit that was earned with all shareholders,” says Vytautas Bakšinskas, the real estate fund manager at INVL Asset Management, which manages INVL Baltic Real Estate.

In 2023, INVL Baltic Real Estate had a consolidated net profit of EUR 0.7 million and consolidated revenue of EUR 3.6 million. The value of the company’s investment property holdings was EUR 42.1 million at the end of 2023 and was 15% larger than a year earlier (when it was EUR 36.4 million).

INVL Baltic Real Estate’s shareholders meeting on 30 April is also being asked to vote on approving the acquisition of own-shares and the preparation of terms for a reorganization of the company to merge into it the entity, acquired last year, which owns the Pramogų Bankas facilities in Vilnius.

If the company’s shareholders approve, part of a reserve created for that purpose would be used to acquire own shares. The maximum purchase price per share would be INVL Baltic Real Estate’s last published net asset value per share, while the minimum purchase price would be EUR 1.45. It is proposed that a time limit of 18 months from the date of the shareholders’ decision be set for any buybacks. Later, to annul the acquired own shares, the company’s share capital would be reduced.

“On getting shareholders’ approval, we would prepare the terms for a reorganization of INVL Baltic Real Estate. The purpose of the reorganization would be for the company to directly own the Pramogų Bankas real estate in Vilnius that was acquired in July 2023,” Vytautas Bakšinskas notes.
