The FSMA (Financial Services and Markets Authority) has formally confirmed to the Company on 1 October 2014 that it meets all conditions of the Law of 12 May 2014 with regard to regulated real estate companies (the "RREC Law") to obtain a licence as a public regulated real estate company ("public RREC"), under certain conditions precedent, and if the "indirect real estate" is brought below the legal threshold of 20% of the consolidated assets of the Company.
The Company has brought its "indirect real estate" meanwhile to below the legal threshold of 20% of the consolidated assets of the Company. On 4 November 2014 the FSMA has granted Leasinvest Real Estate ("LRE") a licence as a public RREC under certain conditions precedent.
The Extraordinary General Meeting of shareholders of LRE ("EGM") held today, 6 November 2014, has unanimously approved the change of status from a public sicafi into a public RREC, in accordance with the RREC Law.
As no single exit right has been exercised and all conditions precedent to which the amendments to the articles of association by the EGM and the licence granted by the FSMA were subjected have been met, LRE benefits immediately as of today of the public RREC status.
LRE is pleased with the approval of this new status by its shareholders. This will allow LRE to continue its current activities in the interest of the Company, its shareholders and other stakeholders, and to consequently position itself as a B-REIT (Belgian Real Estate Investment Trust) in order to optimise its visibility and its understanding by international investors.
