Pets at Home lease extensions

Ediston Property Investment Company plc (LSE: EPIC) ('the Company') announces that it has completed lease extensions with Pets at Home at Clwyd Retail Park, Rhyl, and Plas Coch Retail Park, Wrexham.

Pets at Home occupies 21,900 sq. ft. across the two assets and has agreed to sign a five year lease extension on each unit in exchange for a six month rent free period.  The lease in Wrexham will now expire in June 2027, and the lease in Rhyl will expire in March 2025.  The transactions secure over £350,000 of rental income from a tenant with a good covenant, extend the Company's weighted average unexpired lease term, and underline the commitment of the tenant to these retail parks.


Calum Bruce, Director of Investment at Ediston Properties Limited, the Company's Investment Manager, said: "We are always looking at ways to improve the Company's income stream and completing these transactions does just that.  Securing our tenant for a longer term could further benefit our property portfolio as it is expected to be beneficial to the capital value of each asset."
