Exit from : LaTourReseau De Soins, Switzerland


MENA Capital Holding Company K.S.C. ("MENA Capital Holding") announced that it has sold through a subsidiary its investment in La Tour Réseau de Soins, Geneva, Switzerland. La Tour Réseau de Soins is the largest and most prestigious private hospital in Geneva and includes Hôpital de La Tour and Clinique de Carouge. The sale was closed in December 2012 following several successful value-adding initiatives implemented since its pre-crisis acquisition in July 2007, including: i) renovation of the facilities (completed on schedule and on budget in late 2010), ii) receipt of building entitlements on the adjacent land parcel improving the value and functionality of the real estate and iii) operational improvements leading to a significant increase in revenue over the period from acquisition. MENA Capital Holding's investment in La Tour Réseau de Soins was in line with the Company's strategy of investing in selective real estate dependent transactions.
