Plesner has advised a consortium led by VIKA Project Finance in connection with AKA AS, Reitan Eiendom AS and AS Straen's acquisition of 64 Danish retail properties from REMA 1000 Danmark A/S, all of which will be let to REMA 1000 on long-term leases. The transaction has a total value of approximately NOK 2,8bn.

The transaction includes 37 of the properties that REMA 1000 Danmark A/S has acquired from ALDI. The total of 64 properties, which are spread across large parts of Denmark, will be handed over to the buyer side during 2024, with the first phase expected to be handed over in mid-February 2024.
