Out of 16 million shares in Prime Property BG REIT that Pobeda acquired last week, 8.25 million were taken over from Vitosha Resorts, Prime Property BG REIT said in a bourse filing on Saturday.

Vitosha Resorts, which owned 23.1% in the property investment trust, has exited Prime Property BG REIT's share capital as a result, another filing showed.
Pobeda, which also bought 7.8 million shares in the trust from Balkan Investment Co alongside the 8.25 million acquired from Vitosha Resorts, last week offered to buy out the residual shareholders in Prime Property BG REIT.
The confectionery manufacturer paid 0.61 levs per share, or 9.79 million levs ($5.5 million/5 million euro) in total, to increase its stake in the REIT from 94.85%.
