The merger has been approved yesterday by Beni Stabili Extraordinary General Meeting, with the favourable votes of approximately 99.9% of the share capital represented at the meeting .
The merger, which will be completed at the end of 2018 , is in direct continuation with Beni Stabili’s transformation plan initiated two years ago and further reinforces Covivio investment strategy in Italy, focused on Milan and the development pipeline. It is also a major step towards Group simplification allowing to increase ties between Covivio different divisions. Covivio is therefore consolidating its position as a leading European integrated real estate player, leader on its respective markets, by further strengthening its three strategic pillars: focus on large European capital cities, property development and client centricity.
Covivio Extraordinary General Meeting also approved the corporate name change, from Foncière des Régions to Covivio. This name change will enable a leader in European real estate to have an identity consistent with its strategy. Covivio, a living real estate player, is therefore asserting its European dimension and its proximity to customers, for whom it offers new ways of working, traveling and living.
