“Ovenia’s growth has been strong in recent years. With Vaaka Partners, our majority owner since last spring, we wanted to expand to the real estate and property management of residential properties. We are very pleased to join forces with Arenna, as they are the best company in that sector. Now we can offer our customers a comprehensive service portfolio of the highest quality covering the whole Finland”, says Mika Valtonen, CEO of Ovenia.

“Arenna has gained a firm foothold in real estate management and property management of residential buildings. The merger of Arenna and Ovenia will create strong synergy between real estate management expertise and institutional property management. We can now focus our efforts on one national network and the construction of a shared service portfolio. For our real estate management customers, the acquisition will also increase local flexibility”, says Kai Kosunen, CEO of Arenna.
