The sale’s proceeds will help the South African company to strengthen its balance sheet and have enough resources to deal with the post-covid phase.

According to Andrew Konig (pictured), Redefine CEO, the market conditions and the current health crisis could put huge pressure on the local real estate sector during this and the coming years. To curb this situation, the company is considering divesting its assets deemed unprofitable.

Before this new operation, Redefine Properties sold two assets in Australia for 459 million Australian dollars to settle part of its debt.
