Norwegian-owned real estate company Baltic Sea Properties (BSP) says local banks have turned down its request for funding for construction projects outside Vilnius and Kaunas thrice in the past six months, the business daily Verslo Zinios reported on Thursday.

A member of the company's management board warns that the situation is getting dramatic, it wrote.

In the past half-year, BSP has secured orders from three international businesses for real estate development projects in Alytus, Marijampole and Panevezys.

John Afseth, the management board member, did not give the exact figures, but said each project could be worth between 5 million and 10 million euros.

The company has applied for funding from almost all banks operating in Lithuania, but they refused to lend money because the planned projects are not located in Vilnius or Kaunas.

None of the projects has been cancelled yet. BSP plans to use its own resources to carry out one of the projects, with the other two being put off for now. The company says, however, it is incapable of financing all of the projects on its own.

The value of commercial premises owned by Baltic Sea Properties totaled around 104 million euros in late 2018. The company's real estate lease revenue came in at 7.67 million euros last year.
