  4. 4. BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES IN GREECE GENERAL INFORMATION The market of Greece is quite difficult for foreign investing companies due to the high and complicated taxation and legislation covering Developing. But it is a market with a long history in developing, is politically stable, enjoys good weather conditions, and has a strong spending capacity. To minimize the risks associated with the economic downturn we focus on high-end developments that are less sensitive to the economic fluctuations than a mass-market product that can resist in time. Hotel Development: Generally, the minimum land that should be owned for building a hotel is 15.000 m2. (For lands out of the city borders and in places that the hotel development is allowed). “A” Privately owned islands- deserted. There are a few islands in the Ionian sea and also in the Aegean that are privately owned and can be used for a Hotel development. A special care must be taken because the islands in general, have serious problems with the legislation concerning development on them. More or less, the same applies to most of the areas that are not included within the city limits (even on the mainland). Here below some of the common parameters are shown: • Forestry issues, • Natura & Ramsar restricted areas, • Water and current supplies and the rest of the utilities, • Strong Winds, • Geological formations, Seismic areas, Volcanoes etc • Archaeological sites shown or hidden, Messolonghi lagoon • Accessibility by Sea and Air during the different seasons, • Low coefficients for building, heights and coverage, Allowed Usage of the land • Demography of the island inhabitants • Specifications for the minimum distance from the sea shore, that the development is allowed to be placed. On the private islands, the cost of the land and the project can be considered of around 2.500 - 6.000 Euro/ m2 depending on the location. 4
  5. 5. “B” Inhabited islands On the different islands of Greece, there are still areas that could be built. The same parameters as above should be observed, before any decision is to be followed.

  16. 16. RISKS Risk of fluctuation of construction costs and time If the investor is aiming to earn money from being a partner in the development scheme, meaning participating in the risk of time and possible raising construction cost, rather than buying the project, the safe calculations should be based on a return on the investment of around 30 % – 50 % in the course of 3 to 5 years. (Around 8 – 10 % year return). Risk of fluctuation of time only If on the other hand, the investor would prefer to buy the ready made project and re-sell, thus avoiding the possible raising cost during construction, the return should be considered at about 20 – 30 % in the course of 3 - 5 years. (around 6 – 8 % per year return). Risks that can not be eliminated: Fluctuation of Interest rates or foreign exchange rates, securities prices or market indexes, operational or financial conditions of companies or other factors. VALUATIONS The plot valuations are based on current market values that are checked by reputable well known Agencies who are specializing in this field, that they know the market of each special location and are authorized to perform such a comprehensive work. 16
