Sale of Shopping Center Uberaba to an investment fund was the topic of the day. A deal worth R$ 333 million was formalized on Tuesday night, and from now on, Saphyr will take over the management of Shopping Uberaba. This subject had been discussed for at least two years. Much was speculated about the negotiations and the sale was taken for granted. Then the negotiations cooled down and remained in the freezer for months on end, until they were now resumed and finally completed. A long gestation until it finally came to fruition.
Who is the new owner of Shopping Uberaba? It is a real estate investment fund, linked to Banco Santander. The management of the business, however, will be carried out by Saphyr, which already had 9 other projects of the kind in its portfolio, operating in São Paulo, Rio, Bahia, Alagoas, Amazonas and Acre. Now there are 10, with Shopping Uberaba. “Our focus is the quality of the relationship with our audiences, because we know that we are more than shopping and leisure centers, we are social facilities that serve the community in all its needs. It is with this positioning that we arrived in Minas Gerais: seeking to transform experiences”, says Carlos Frederico Youssef, CEO of Saphyr Shopping Centers, in a note distributed to the press this Thursday.
It is necessary to recognize the successful avant-garde action by the entrepreneurs of Shopping Uberaba. Discredited when it opened in 1999, our Shopping Center soon became a reference in regional commerce, attracting consumers from several neighboring cities. Our “point” for meeting friends, children’s leisure, last-minute gift shopping, movie premieres, community events, lunch with the family. Shopping Uberaba changed our focus and our routine and made us understand that we could dream (and fulfill this dream) with a shopping center of excellence in our city. After driving the stakes and building the success of Shopping Uberaba, Jaguara Empreendimentos’ helmsmen leave the scene for new managers to take over the baton. But they go down in history as those people from Uberaba who dared to face the sameness, the doldrums, and provide our city with a first-rate shopping center. To the brave entrepreneurs of Jaguara, our recognition, our gratitude and our applause. It cost!
