Newil&Bau expands to Turku by acquiring Auratum Asunnot and raises new equity in funding round led by Rausanne

Newil&Bau is expanding its operations to Turku by acquiring the business of Auratum Asunnot.

With this acquisition, Newil&Bau’s project portfolio will increase in value to over 650 million euros, of which approximately 220 million euros worth of homes are currently under construction. In connection with the business transaction carried out at the end of December, Rausanne became a 15% shareholder in Newil&Bau. The acquisition will not affect the ongoing or guaranteed properties of Auratum Asunnot, as their responsibilities will remain with the founding developers, Auratum Asunnot Turku Oy and Auratum Asunnot Helsinki Oy, whose ownership will not change.

“We are excited about our first geographical expansion to Turku, which is one of Finland’s most vibrant growth centers. Auratum Asunnot leads the way in customer-centric, high-quality residential development in Finland, holding a strong position, particularly in the Turku region. Our shared values make me confident that we are an ideal match to enhance our offering and deliver the best possible products to our clients.” says Petri Ylivuori, CEO of Newil&Bau.

The personnel transferring from Auratum Asunnot to Newil&Bau will continue to manage the construction, sales, and customer service of Auratum Asunnot’s current projects. The company has ongoing construction projects in Turku and Naantali, as well as properties undergoing annual repairs in Helsinki and Turku. New projects will be developed under Newil&Bau’s supervision in the future.

“It’s great to have a like-minded partner with whom we can continue to grow and develop new projects. Newil&Bau has created a great brand and brought new thinking to the housing market. A good thing about the arrangement is that work on our current properties will continue with the same staff and nothing will change,” says Rausannen CEO Arto Puolimatka.

“This milestone paves the way for our growth going forward and allows us to scale our Design Home and Services – concept, Customer Platform technology solution and other centralized processes into a new geographical region. This sets a solid foundation for our future international expansion. We are also pleased to have Rausanne support our growth as a shareholder and project financing partner,” concludes Petri Ylivuori, CEO of Newil&Bau.

The companies do not disclose the purchase price of the business transaction.
