Class A business centre Krugozor reaches full occupancy: O1 Properties and ROLF Import sign office lease agreement

Moscow, Russia - 26 November 2012 - Investment company O1 Properties (“O1 Properties” or the “Company”), one of the largest owners and managers of a portfolio of high quality office properties in Moscow, and ROLF Import, the official importer and distributor of Mitsubishi cars in Russia, today announced the signing of a seven year lease agreement for office space at the class A business centre Krugozor.

ROLF Import will move into a 4,756 sq. m. office on the third floor of Building 2 in the first quarter of 2013.

Krugozor business centre is located in the south-west of Moscow between Profsoyuznaya Street and Leninsky Prospekt. It comprises two units of eight and thirteen floors with a net rentable area of 50,917 sq. m., fitted out in a contemporary, hi-tech style. The buildings have panoramic windows and modern, high quality fittings. Flexible space planning, the practical arrangement of support columns, and high ceilings allow for the most efficient use of the office space.

Krugozor offers its tenants a variety of facilities within the complex itself, including two restaurants, a canteen, coffee shop, pharmacist, bank, tourist agency, gym, 721 car parking spaces and a landscaped park.

Colliers International acted as consultants for the deal.

Alexander Ostrovksy, Chief Executive Officer of O1 Properties, commented: “We are delighted to form a partnership with our new tenant ROLF Import. Krugozor is a high quality business centre which has always attracted high interest from potential tenants. Following the signing of this deal, the business centre is now at 100% occupancy.”

Vera Larlomkina, HR Director at ROLF Import, added: “A comfortable and well-equipped office is incredibly important for our company to be able to work productively. The professional management of the building, modern engineering equipment, well-planned space as well as the fact that employees from all departments will sit together on one floor should lead to more collaboration and the strengthening of our team spirit.”

Vera Zimenkova, Director of Corporate Services at Colliers International, noted: “Krugozor business centre is well known as one of the biggest projects in the south-west of Moscow. The majority of office units were already leased before the completion of the redevelopment which was carried out in 2007. Other tenants are large international clients including Volkswagen, Citibank, SCANIA, NewTech Services and IBM.”
