Terrafina Signs Binding Agreement for the Construction of an Expansion in Aguascalientes

MEXICO CITY, June 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terrafina (”TERRA”) (BMV:TERRA13), a leading Mexican industrial real estate investment trust (“FIBRA”), externally advised by PGIM Real Estate and dedicated to the acquisition, development, leasing and management of industrial real estate properties in Mexico, announced today the signing of a binding contract for the expansion of an existing property in Aguascalientes.

Terrafina completed the negotiation for an expansion of more than 248,000 square feet for a tenant linked to manufacturing for exports in the electronics sector. This tenant has an excellent growth track-record with Terrafina, reaching approximately one million square feet to its operations in Aguascalientes over the past six years, including this recent expansion.

The total estimated investment in this property (excluding taxes) is of US$11.2 million and is expected to generate a development yield over stabilized net operating income (NOI) of approximately 10%. Moreover, the contract was extended to 11 years and signed in US dollars. The construction is expected to conclude within seven months.

Alberto Chretin, Terrafina’s CEO, stated, “A crucial part of Terrafina’s success is to continue reinforcing its existing tenant relations by providing additional leasable area through the development of expansions and built-to-suits (BTS), supporting in this way its clients’ current and future operational needs. Today, manufacturing for export activity in Mexico remains solid and Terrafina continues to grow in this segment driven by its proven business model and expertise in the industrial real estate sector.”
