Additional information:

Shareholders of the real estate investment company INVL Baltic Real Estate approved reorganization terms for the merger into the company of RE 1, a subsidiary that owns premises in the Old Town of the Lithuanian capital. The reorganization of the companies is expected to be completed still this year.

Following the reorganization, RE 1, which is being merged into INVL Baltic Real Estate, will cease operations without a liquidation procedure, and all its rights and obligations will transfer to the real estate investment company. Because INVL Baltic Real Estate owns all the shares of the company that is being merged into it, after the reorganisation, the shares of RE 1 will not be exchanged for shares of INVL Baltic Real Estate.

“We expect to complete the process of reorganizing the companies by the end of this year. As INVL Baltic Real Estate will directly own all the premises at Vilniaus Street 37, we’ll be able to manage the property more effectively,” says Vytautas Bakšinskas, the real estate fund manager at INVL Asset Management, which manages INVL Baltic Real Estate.

In June 2022, INVL Baltic Real Estate acquired 100% of the shares of RE 1, which owns 257 sq. m. of non-residential space (a café) at Vilniaus Street 37. After the transaction, INVL Baltic Real Estate became the sole owner of the building in the Vilnius Old Town. The total area of the premises owned at Vilniaus Street 37 is 1,990 sq. m.

The shareholders of INVL Baltic Real Estate on Friday also approved a proposal to retain the same audit firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, to audit the company’s financial statements for 2023. Additionally, they revised the terms of payment for audit services for this year and approved the remuneration for audit services next year.

Further, shareholders revoked a decision of the INVL Baltic Real Estate shareholders meeting of 9 April 2020 to change the company’s provider of depository services and sign a contract with Šiaulių Bankas instead of SEB Bankas. They voted to leave in force the depository services agreement which INVL Baltic Real Estate signed with SEB Bankas in November 2016, since its terms are economically more advantageous.

To replace Audrius Matikiūnas, who has tendered his resignation as a member of the Supervisory Board, shareholders elected Mantas Gofmanas, the Head of Legal & Product Development in the Private Equity Division of INVL Asset Management. Once the permission of the Bank of Lithuania is received, Gofmanas will hold the position until the term of INVL Baltic Real Estate’s current Supervisory Board ends – on the day of the company’s Annual General Meeting of Shareholders in 2025.
