RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, Jan. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vinci Partners Investments Ltd. (NASDAQ: VINP) (“Vinci Partners”, “we”, “us” or “our”), the controlling company of a leading alternative investment platform in Brazil, announced today the closing of the sixth issue of additional quotas for Vinci Offices FII (“VINO” or “the Fund”), a listed office REIT managed by Vinci Partners’ Real Estate segment.
VINO is a perpetual capital listed REIT, focused on income generation to its quotaholders through the acquisition of office properties in Brazil. This fundraise adds R$215 million of perpetual capital to Vinci Partners’ assets under management (“AUM”) in private market strategies.
With the offering’s proceeds the Fund has acquired Globo Comunicação e Participações’ (“Grupo Globo” or “the Company”) headquarters and studios located in the city of São Paulo, through a R$522 million sale and leaseback transaction with Grupo Globo, the largest media conglomerate in Latin America, reaching full deployment status.
Leandro Bousquet, partner, and Head of Real Estate for Vinci Partners, said, “After our pioneer share swap transaction in our shopping mall REIT, we are extremely pleased to announce our new partnership with Grupo Globo in our office REIT, as the Company becomes a relevant quotaholder of VINO. The Fund has added to its portfolio a high-quality asset and a notable tenant through a fifteen-year lease contract. This acquisition is extremely strategic for VINO as it increases our exposure to atypical long-term contracts and to assets located in São Paulo, the most relevant market in Brazil for office properties.”
