JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Germany’s Adler Real Estate <ADLG.DE> has agreed to buy ADO Group <ADO.TA>, a Tel Aviv-listed shareholder in ADO Properties <ADJ.DE>, for 708 million euros (626 million pounds), the companies said on Monday.

Following the acquisition, Adler will hold a 33% stake in ADO Properties, a 4.4 billion euro German-listed residential real estate company focused on Berlin. ADO Group will be delisted from the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

The 708 million euro value represents an 83% premium on ADO Group’s closing share price on Sunday. Shares were up 60.5% in Tel Aviv in late-morning trade.

Adler said the deal will be funded by a combination of a rights issue, fully guaranteed and backstopped by Adler anchor shareholders, cash from disposals of non-yielding assets and financial debt.
