Globalworth published a trading update summarising the key highlights of its operating performance during the first six months of the year, including some further updates as to the impact of the pandemic crisis on its operations.
In the first half of 2020, Globalworth leased nearly 50,000 sqm of office space in its buildings in Poland. In the last 3 months, during very difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the asset management & leasing department of the CEE office investor has signed contracts for a total area exceeding 28,000 sqm.
Globalworth's portfolio in Romania has been consolidated by the prolongation and extension of the lease contracts for a period of 3 - 11 years with key partners such as Adecco, Cegedim, Clinicile și Laboratoarele Sfânta Maria, Mazars and a major bank.
Starting July 2020, Rondo Business Park, an office complex located in Kraków, will be managed by Globalworth. A percentage of over 80% of the company's Polish portfolio is represented by in-house managed assets.
Globalworth is taking over the property management of five more office buildings in its Polish portfolio. Centrum Lubicz Office in Kraków and Bliski Centrum, Philips House, Nordic Park and Batory Building I in Warsaw have a combined area of over 50,000 sqm.
Starting May 2020, Kraków’s Podium Park office building is managed by specialists from Globalworth. The in-house property management model, which allows operating closer to tenants, is one of the most important elements of the strategy of the investor.
Globalworth has announced changes to the company's Board of Directors. Bruce Buck, who was appointed as an Investor Director by Zakiono on 13 December 2017, has ceased to be a Director with immediate effect and Martin Bartyzal has been appointed as an Investor Director with immediate effect.
Globalworth released its annual financial reports for 2019 and issued a COVID-19 statement. Since the beginning of the year, Globalworth has further improved its liquidity, which is currently close to €600 million of available cash.
