Värde Funds $155 Million for Two Office Developments in Hyderabad, India
Värde Partners, a leading global alternative investment firm, today announced it has provided senior construction financing on two pre-leased office assets in the Gachibowli Financial District of Hyderabad, India.
The $155 million facility will be used to refinance and fund to completion over 2.5 million square feet across the two Grade A developments owned by Phoenix Group. To date, over 1.5 million square feet has been pre-let to two multi-national companies, reflecting the quality and location of the assets. Construction of both projects is well-advanced, with sub-structure development complete and super-structure phases underway.
Hyderabad is a recognized global tech hub, with the city’s financial district home to a large number of multi-national tech, financial services and professional services companies. Hyderabad is one of the fastest growing metropolitan cities in India and one of the strongest markets in the country for office absorption.
Värde believes that India’s real estate market is experiencing a significant imbalance in the supply and demand of capital, leading to many businesses with robust balance sheets seeking alternative sources of capital.
“We see significant opportunity across the Indian office market for both the financing and purchase of assets, in a market that offers potential strong cash-flow visibility, multinational tenants and strong absorption,” said Tim Mooney, Partner and Global Head of Real Estate at Värde Partners. “India is a dramatic example, but emblematic of what we're seeing across the Asia Pacific region, and across the globe. We believe that a real estate cycle is upon us and while not nearly as pronounced as the cycle brought on by the global financial crisis, the opportunity set is significant and growing.”

Evobrutinib is the First and Only BTK Inhibitor to Demonstrate Reduction of a Key Biomarker of Neuronal Damage and Inflammation in Patients with MS16.4.2021 10:00:00 CEST | Press release
Merck, a leading science and technology company, will present data from a Phase II placebo-controlled randomized trial at the 2021 American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting showing that the investigational Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor evobrutinib significantly reduced blood neurofilament light chain (NfL) levels, a key biomarker of neuronal damage and inflammation, in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Elevated blood NfL levels have been shown to be associated with damage to neurons and inflammation and may predict future brain atrophy and disease progression. “Blood NfL is a biomarker that may allow monitoring of disease activity and treatment response, which could be less burdensome and more sensitive than other standard clinical measures for MS patients,” said Prof. Jens Kuhle, MD, PhD, Head Multiple Sclerosis Centre, University Hospital Basel. “These data provide key insights into the role evobrutinib may play in modulating the clinical course of MS and fur
