Madrid, 14 November 2016.- Axiare Patrimonio obtained net profits of EUR 91.3 million at the close of the third quarter, representing an increase of 145% relative to the same period in 2015.

Axiare Patrimonio has improved its properties by positioning them as the best in their respective catchment areas. Consequently, rents on these properties have increased considerably given their quality.
