Mezzanine capital provides financing solution for Roses Fashion Outlet Center
- Expansion of the first construction phase by approximately 3,000 m² of office space
- Higher equity capital requirements for credit financing due to the financial crisis
- Liable capital in the form of mezzanine capital made it possible to complete the project financing
The good development of Roses Fashion Outlet Center, which opened one year ago, was one of the reasons why the Austrian operator promptly decided to increase the first project phase by around 3,000 m² of office space. As a result, the capital requirements rose and a different financing solution had to be found, just as the financial and economic crisis was reaching its climax.
The loan financing required for the expansion phase required an increase in liable capital. In the end, a financing solution was found using mezzanine capital. An investment by Mezzanin Finanzierungs AG reinforced the equity capital base, helping to close the last remaining gap in the project’s financing.
The Roses Outlet in Sveti Kriz Zacretje is Croatia’s first factory outlet centre and opened its doors in the autumn of 2008. The developer and operator is the Austrian Dayland Group, headed by Thomas Seikmann and Manfred Schlager. The initial phase of the outlet centre features 101 shops with a floorspace of 15,050 m2 and office space of around 3,000 m2. The centre has excellent traffic connections and an outstanding brand mix. The second phase is planned for completion by autumn 2010 and will add roughly 45 shops with some 8,550 m² of floorspace to the Roses Fashion Outlet Center.
