Viver is a real estate developer and builder, operating in all stages of real estate development – from land acquisition through project development and construction to unit sales. The Company has 20 years of experience in differentiated projects including club condominiums, residential buildings, residential villages and low-income housing, a segment in which it has been operating since 1999. To date, Viver has launched more than R$8 billion in potential sales volume (VGV), corresponding to more than 36,000 units with a total built area of more than 3 million square meters, and has more than 10,000 clients in its current portfolio.
The Company’s primary focus is on the residential market, in the middle and mid-high segments. Given its multi-segment background, the Company also develops projects in the commercial, tourism and land division segments.
The Company’s shares are listed on the BM&FBOVESPA’s Novo Mercado trading segment, which requires adherence to the highest standards of corporate governance. Viver has already received more than 25 important awards for its outstanding construction and development performance. Paladin Realty Partners, a US-based real estate private equity firm focused on emerging countries with more than 10 years experience in property investment in Latin America is the main controlling shareholder.
Founded in 1992 in São Paulo, Viver initially operated within the residential (low-to-high income segments) and commercial developments (offices, corporate towers and medical buildings, as well as mixed-use and built-to-suit projects). The Company has also developed 20 hotels in the 2 to 5 star categories and resort projects.
In 2007, the Company successfully completed its initial public offering, raising R$756 million from a 100% primary offering. Viver used the proceeds to strengthen its land bank and expand its activities by moving into other regions of the country.
In December 2008, Paladin Prime Residential Investors (Brazil), a property fund managed by Paladin Realty Partners, a US-based private equity firm focusing on emerging countries with more than 10 years experience in property investment in Latin America, became the Company’s main controlling shareholder.
In recent years, the Company has undergone an extensive restructuring process, with the adoption of new values and attitudes, prioritizing a more conservative approach to financial management with more transparent and streamlined processes, and the selection of strategic operational markets, and improved client relations.
In April 2011, the Company changed its name from Inpar S.A. to Viver Incorporadora e Construtora S.A.
