July 16 (Reuters) - UK’s Segro Plc said on Friday it had agreed to sell six of its warehouses in Italy to asset manager AXA IM Alts for 127.5 million euros ($150.49 million), as a pandemic-led e-commerce boom had boosted demand for such properties.
“We have chosen to capitalise on buoyant market conditions to sell this portfolio at a price materially ahead of December 2020 book value. We will be recycling the capital into exciting opportunities in other parts of Italy,” warehousing specialist Segro in a statement.
