Completion of Sale of Head Office Site  

 

Photo-Me, the instant service equipment group, has today completed the sale of its head office buildings in Bookham, Surrey. The freehold was sold to Shanly Homes Limited (SHL) for a consideration of £2.5 million. The book value of the land sold is £0.1 million and therefore the profit on the sale (before ancillary costs) amounts to approximately £2.4 million.

As previously announced, this disposal is part of the Group's review of its property portfolio in order to group the activities of its head office and UK operations into one location. This strategy will rationalise the Group's property footprint and will enable it to achieve further efficiencies in its UK operations.

 

The Group's new registered office is 3B Blenheim Road, Longmead Industrial Estate, Epsom, Surrey KT19 9AP.
