NACKA, Sweden--()--Regulatory News:

Fabege (STO:FABGA) has come to an agreement with Peab to acquire Peab’s 50 per cent stake in Visio. Following the acquisition, Fabege will own 100 per cent of Visio, which owns development rights in Solna. Furthermore, Fabege is acquiring the Distansen 4, 6 and 7 properties in Ulriksdal from Peab.

In connection with the capitalisation of Arenabolaget i Solna KB (ABS), ABS has acquired assets adjacent to the Friends Arena from Visio. Thereafter Visio retains its holding in Råsta, which includes development rights in Solna. Råsta is owned by Visio (75 per cent) and the City of Solna (25 per cent).
