The Group sold part of the farmland
AB Linas Agro Group has concluded a transaction with INVL Sustainable Timberland and Farmland Fund II (STAFF II) for the sale of almost 164 hectares of agricultural land. The amount of the transaction amounted to 990 thousand euros.
Today, four subsidiaries of Linas Agro Group, Panevėžys District Aukštadvario ŽŪB, UAB Landvesta 1, UAB Landvesta 4 and UAB Landvesta 5 signed a transaction with Zemvaldos Turtas SPV2, the company managed by STAFF II, for the sale of 163.93 hectares of farmland. Agricultural land plots are in Panevėžys (131.17 ha), Joniškis (10.62 ha), and Vilkaviškis (22.14 ha) districts.
“Last year we decided to increase the efficiency of asset management. We cultivate over 18 thousand hectares of land and have about 5,897 hectares of our own farmland. We rent part of that land to farmers every year because some of the plots are too far away from our agricultural companies to work efficiently. We have decided to sell part of such plots and focus more on priority activities”, says Mažvydas Šileika, CFO of AB Linas Agro Group.
