Success is measured by the results particularly in unusually difficult, sensitive or complex transactions and assignments. Here below we list a few cases that we believe made a headway in the Greek marketplace:
Vodafone assigned to VALEUR in 2010-2011 as part of a pan-European project the lease renewal and lease renegotiation project for: a) 57 properties, mostly shops all over Greece and one office building in Athens, and b) 100 RBS (Radio Based Stations) located all over Greece. VALEUR was already known for having concluded a very similar exercise for 125 branches of Marfin Egnatia Bank all over Greece- possibly the first lease renegotiation large project involving an advisor in the Greek market.
VALEUR was accepted as the sole real estate advisor to both parties in the transaction involving the leasing of the 6,500 m2 office building to Singular Logic, a well-known software company, in the 6-building office complex in Nea Ionia area of Athens. The office complex, where the headquarters of the 2004 Athens Olympic Committee were previously located, was renown for being one of the earliest and very few successful examples of a large industrial complex being redeveloped for commercial uses.
Marfin Egnatia Bank (later Cyprus Popular Bank, now part of Piraeus Bank) was in the period 2006-2009 probably the 5th largest bank in Greece, having quickly expanded its retail network, assets and operations over a short period of time as a result of mergers/acquisitions. VALEUR had a wide ranging collaboration with the Bank on a number of important projects.
HRADF (Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund) was established in 2011 and constitutes the Greek Government fund that exclusively handles the sale of all state assets (including properties) committed to be offered to investors as part of the EU-funded bailout package. HRADF aims to create a portfolio of about three thousand properties (mostly in Greece) with an estimated value of €10 billion to be sold/long leased to investors.
Hygia Hospital was established as the pioneer private hospital in Greece in 1975. The company is listed on the Athens Stock Exchange and the Group now comprises two leading hospitals, “Mitera” and “Lito”. Hygeia hospital is the only hospital in Greece (and of the few in Europe) accredited by the prestigious JCI, enjoys a collaboration agreement with Harvard Medical School and was awarded the first prize in the European Business Awards 2012/3 while regularly showing up in the top places of the Best Place to Work awards. The hospital’s building in Maroussi, Athens is a known landmark building.
