LEG Immobilien AG has signed an agreement in principle about the acquisition of a portfolio of around 13,800 residential units in North Rhine-Westphalia from Vonovia SE. The purchase price for the portfolio amounts to approximately EUR 600 m.

The closing of the transaction is subject to approval by the Federal Antitrust Office and is expected in spring 2016.

Spitze (M&A/Real Estate), Carl-Philipp Eberlein (Capital Markets) (both Frankfurt) and Malcolm Tiffin-Richards (Antitrust, Brussels).
