Portfolio Disposals


Real Estate Investors Plc (AIM:RLE), the UK’s only Midlands-focused Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), with a portfolio of 1.5 million sq ft of commercial property across all sectors, is pleased to confirm that it has completed the sales of assets in Bearwood and Pontypool, totalling £5,530,000.


The proceeds generated from these transactions will be used to repay debt with a view to reducing net gearing levels and securing value-add acquisitions to enhance portfolio capital and income growth, which will in turn support the Company’s ongoing progressive dividend policy.


Located in the heart of the Midlands region, the business remains well positioned to benefit from regional initiatives and events, in particular HS2 and the impending Commonwealth Games in 2022.
