In March 2022, Proximus and Immobel have reached binding agreements regarding the redevelopment of Proximus' headquarters in Brussels. As a result of these agreements, Proximus acquired rights and gave commitments to cede the Proximus headquarters for approximately EUR 143 million in December 2023, and to enter into a lease-back agreement of a part of the renovated buildings.
Due to concerns raised by Immobel related to the current macro-economic situation, both parties have agreed after further negotiations to extend the initially foreseen closing period with nine months, whereby Immobel has the sole right to call the transaction in Q3 2024.
In line with the initial planning, all Proximus employees having their workplace in the headquarters, have been relocated to other office buildings in Brussels.
Immobel has agreed to an irrevocable payment of EUR 30 million in December 2023. In case Immobel decides to exercise the call option, this amount will be deducted from the acquisition price. In the meantime, Proximus maintains full ownership of the headquarter building.
