08 Mar 2017 - Europa Capital and Addington Capital sell in Rotherham

Europa Capital, and partner Addington Capital, the property, investment and asset management specialist, announce the sale of the Webhelp Call Centre in  Dearne Valley, Rotherham to a privately owned Isle of Man property company for £6.875 million, reflecting a net initial yield of 9.25%.

The freehold property comprises a 62,700 sq ft modern two-story building, with 440 car park spaces and is let until March 2024 at a rent of £675,000 per annum (£10.75 psf).

Europa Capital and Addington acquired the property as part of Prospect Portfolio in January 2016.

Hugo Black, Partner at Europa Capital, commented: "This represents the seventh sale out of the original 26-property portfolio, while various value-accretive initiatives are being pursued on the remainder of the portfolio."

Matthew Allen, Principal of Addington Capital said: "This deal follows on from our flurry of investment sales announced in February and is a further testament to the strength in demand for sub £10 million properties. Breaking up portfolios acquired over the past 2/3 years remains further underpinned by the strong auctions market."

Allsop & C&W acted jointly for the seller and Andrew Dixon & Company of Telford advised the purchaser.
