ASSET MANAGEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITY ENHANCING PORTFOLIO INCOME GENERATION

Tritax EuroBox plc ("Tritax EuroBox" or the "Company") (ticker: EBOX (Sterling) and BOXE (Euro)), which invests in high-quality, prime logistics real estate strategically located across continental Europe, announces it has successfully agreed new leases on two of its assets which together add €1.3 million to contracted annual rent.

 

Hammersbach, Germany - adding value through asset management

We have realised significant value through asset management by securing a new lease to an established German third party logistics provider on our 43,000 sqm building near Frankfurt.

 

Key highlights include:

§ Growing rents by 24% to €3.1 million from €2.5 million per annum.

§ New lease includes annual and uncapped CPI linked indexation uplifts.

§ New seven year term, with tenant option to extend the lease by a further five years (subject to a market rent review at extension).

§ Inclusion of our standard Green Lease clauses.

 

Bornem, Belgium - adding value through development

In line with our strategy to increase our exposure to attractive development opportunities, we have successfully let a newly constructed 15,000 sqm building to a leading online grocery retailer.

 

Key highlights include:

§ Nine year lease, tenant break options at year three and six including annual indexed rent generating €0.7m per annum initially.

§ Rental levels achieved represent a 14% increase on previous rents secured on the site.

§ Delivers significant value to shareholders with a profit on cost of 70% and yield on cost of 7%.

§ Meets our ESG objectives through implementation of a green lease, installation of 250kw per annum of solar renewable energy as well as energy efficient LED lighting.

 

Nick Preston, Fund Manager of Tritax EuroBox, commented:

"These leases demonstrate the successful implementation of our strategy, delivering attractive levels of rental growth to our shareholders through a combination of asset management and development activity. Our proactivity complements the attractive long-term and inflation linked income generating characteristics of our portfolio. In addition, these leases provide further evidence of the accelerating levels of rental growth within key European logistics locations. Through a combination of our strong existing portfolio, asset management and increasing development activity we are well placed to capture the strong fundamentals that are driving rental and valuation growth."
