ABOUT US

The Atterbury Group (Atterbury Property Holdings (Pty) Ltd or “Atterbury”) was founded in 1994, South Africa by Louis van der Watt and Francois van Niekerk, with a primary focus on developing retail centres and commercial buildings. Over the past 23 years the Atterbury Group has developed prime commercial, retail and residential property across South Africa, the rest of the African continent and more recently, Europe.

The European expansion gathered momentum in 2014 when Atterbury co-invested with a consortium of private equity investors and Hemisphere International Properties B.V. , wholly owned subsidiary of Steinhoff International Holdings N.V. (“Steinhoff”) in forming Atterbury Europe B.V. (“Atterbury Europe”).

Steinhoff is an integrated retailer that retails, sources and manufactures household goods and general merchandise in the United Kingdom, Europe, the USA, Africa and Australasia.  The Steinhoff Group’s property portfolio

remains a key strategic component in securing a relevant infrastructure and store network for its integrated retail businesses.

Steinhoff International has a primary listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, and has a current market capitalisation of approximately €20 billion.

The combination of Atterbury’s skills, knowledge and experience of investing in and developing property, combined with Steinhoff’s balance sheet and operating experience in the European markets provided an ideal platform from which to enter the real estate property market in Europe.

The platform’s success is evident two and a half years later through the combined holding of shares in real estate companies worth more than Euro 400 million spread over three countries mainly consisting of dominant shopping centres in prominent locations.
