CASE STUDY
 
Nordea

Opportunity:
Nordea is a $314 billion international financial services company spanning the globe with operations in 21 countries. It manages three primary business lines: corporate and institutional banking, retail banking, and investment management and life insurance. Nordea sought a real estate divestiture of a 2-million-square-foot portfolio of premier office and retail buildings.

Cardinal Solution:
Cardinal Capital completed a $1 billion sale-leaseback transaction involving 13 properties located in the central business districts of Stockholm, Sweden; Oslo, Norway; and Helsinki, Finland. This transaction improved Nordea's corporate capital efficiency and shareholder value. Additionally, Nordea was better able to concentrate on its core business activities after this dramatic reduction of real estate ownership.
