SRV and its Finnish co-investors have sold their holdings in Jupiter Realty 1 B.V., the company that owns the Okhta Mall shopping center in St. Petersburg, to the Cypriot real estate investment company Geomare Investments Limited.

SRV has directly owned 45 percent of the Okhta Mall shopping center opened in 2016 and indirectly about 27 percent. The company has been responsible for the shopping center's operational activities. After the sale of Okhta Mall, SRV is a co-owner in two Russian shopping centers through associated companies. In addition, SRV owns one land plot in Russia.
SRV's share of the shopping center's sales price is approximately 4.3 million euros. The sale has no effect on SRV's operating profit.
SRV is actively continuing negotiations aimed at the sale of its remaining assets in Russia.
