"This transaction will allow our client Depo to move forward with its development strategy. As a local player, the chain is fully capable of professionally meeting an international investor's needs both in terms of real estate quality and also the transaction's management process. This example perfectly shows the Baltic market's growing professionalism as well as the market's possibilities to attract additional foreign capital," Angela Kolesnikova, a partner at Colliers International Advisors, said in a statement.
