"We have achieved the leading position among shopping and entertainment centers organically, by developing our own projects, but we have always had the ambition to grow through acquisitions, too. The transaction in Riga adds to our leading position and our trust in the future of the shopping centers business,” said Manfredas Dargužis, CEO of Akropolis Group.
