The Company has acquired five industrial units covering an aggregate 40,419 sq ft on Knowsley Business Park, Liverpool, adjacent to junction 4 of the M57.  The units are occupied by Portakabin, Green Thumb, Central Electrical Armature and Med Imaging with a weighted average unexpired term to first break or expiry of 4.0 years.

 

The units have an aggregate passing rent of £214,117 per annum, reflecting a net initial yield1 of 5.74%.

Commenting on the acquisition, Richard Shepherd-Cross, Managing Director of Custodian Capital Limited (the Company's discretionary investment manager), said:

 

"We are delighted to have secured these modern assets in an area with strong evidence of increasing industrial rents, offering short-medium term asset management opportunities."

2 Gross borrowings less unrestricted cash divided by last published property portfolio valuation.
