AB Linas Agro Group sells unexploited real estate
AB Kauno Grūdai, a subsidiary of AB Linas Agro Group, today signed an agreement with UAB Nordic Estate to sell 3.3353 ha land plot in Kaunas at H. and O. Minkovskių str. 41A and structures thereon. The transaction price is 4 million euros, excluding VAT.
“For the second year in a row, we are optimizing our assets to generate a higher return on them. After taking over the management of AB Kauno Grūdai, we are screening the assets of this company and assess the extent to which it will be useful for the further development of production. The plot for sale is the furthest from our feed production unit and does not have the critical infrastructure for production. Prior to the transaction, the land plot value was assessed by independent real estate evaluators,” said Mažvydas Šileika, Chief Financial Officer of AB Linas Agro Group.
