Following the preliminary results of the joint tender offer with the GWM Group, Eurocastle is committed to invest €21.3 million to acquire 11,929 units, representing 36.8% of the initially targeted amount and 7.5% of the total units outstanding. The initial offer price of €1,850 per unit has been reduced to a final tender price of €1,787.50 per unit, reflecting a distribution that was announced during the tender period and has already been paid to the existing unit holders.
