INVL Baltic Real Estate public share offering ends
“INVL Baltic Real Estate is a successfully operating company which generates cash flows and which in recent years has earned one of the biggest returns for investors among the real estate funds available on the market. It stands out among other companies with steady income from leasing real estate for its properties’ excellent location and significant development potential. The results of the share offering that has ended are due to the fact that we didn’t managed to properly present the fund’s advantages to potential investors, so we’ll examine what we should improve in the future in order for this company to be attractive and bring maximum benefit to those who’ve invested in it,” said Invalda INVL President Darius Šulnis.
INVL Baltic Real Estate’s consolidated net profit for the first three quarters of this year was EUR 2.2 million and grew 6.7 per cent compared with the same period last year.

INVL Baltic Real Estate’s consolidated net operating income from its properties in three quarters of 2018 was EUR 2.3 million and compared with the same period last year increased 21 per cent. The company’s consolidated revenue was EUR 4.3 million, or 10 per cent less than in nine months of 2017. Within that amount, consolidated leasing income from properties increased 17 per cent to EUR 3.4 million.
