The Barney’s building

/ By Ilan Shavit /

Property and Building Ltd. (TASE: PTBL), a unit of IDB Holding Corp. Ltd.(TASE:IDBH), controlled by Nochi Dankner, has sold the Barney’s building to an American Real

Estate company for $154 million.  The company will make a cash flow of $68.5 million on the sale, in addition to the surplus cash flow of $10.7 million made over the past two years. It has made a cumulative gross profit of $8 million on the property for an 89% return on investment in two years.

It will not report a profit or loss on the sale, because the sale price reflects the fair value of the property in the company’s books. The sale is subject to certain conditions, the most important of which is the consent of the lender bank to transfer the loan on the property from Property and Building to the buyer. The sale is due to be closed within 60 days.

Property and Building bought the Barney’s building in March 2011 for $122 million – $42 million in equity and $80 million in a long-term loan.

It is located in Chicago’s business district and includes 9, 000 m2 Which are rented out in long-term leasing agreements to Barney’s flagship branch, Elite fashion stores and Citibank.
