At Finaccess Capital we are focused on consolidating our investments, with a long-term philosophy, by constantly searching for specific opportunities striving to offer great value creating potential for our shareholders. We are currently present in Mexico, the US, Europe, and Asia, where we promote, acquire, or participate in the equity or wealth of a great diversity of commercial or real estate companies.
Noteworthy among our most relevant recent investments is our launching of a public offering to acquire a larger share in the Polish company AmRest Holdings SE, the largest independent restaurant chain operator in Central and Eastern Europe. As a result of the public offering, Finaccess Capital and its co-investors became the majority shareholders in AmRest, with more than a 50% equity share and the resulting control of the company. Finaccess Capital, in close collaboration with the current AmRest managing team, will center its efforts on scaling the company and consolidating its leadership.
AmRest currently operates more than 1,100 fast food and casual dining restaurants in 13 countries with the KFC, Pizza Hut, Burger King, and Starbucks brands under the franchise model, and its own brands La Tagliatella, Blue Frog Bar & Grill, and Kabb Bistro Bar.
Additionally, Finaccess Capital executed another very relevant transaction in the real estate sector in Europe through which Finaccess Capital and its co-investors became the most relevant minority shareholder in Inmobiliaria Colonial. Colonial is a leading real estate company in Europe with properties in Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris, which up to now have been its three traditional markets. Its portfolio currently includes 59 buildings with a value exceeding 8 billion euros. 84% of Colonial’s revenue comes from office buildings, of which 75% are prime assets with high exposure to CBD markets.
