Europa Fund III and Europa Fund IV have successfully leased 94,717 sq. feet of retail space during 2015 at investments in Ayr, Great Yarmouth, Corby and Workington. The new lettings were to 29 tenants, generating over £1.2 million per annum of new income for the Funds. This included lettings to major international and national retailers such as Marks and Spencer, HMV, DW Sports and Poundworld. In addition there were lease renewals on a further 42,000 sq feet, securing a further £0.5 million per annum.
Rob Sim, Partner and Head of Northern Europe at Europa Capital LLP, commented: “The Europa managed Funds continue to benefit from careful stock selection and strong asset management. As a result, letting activity in 2015 was ahead of business plan in terms of the quality of tenants and rents achieved. We expect to see a further improvement in the tenant profile in 2016, as retailers continue to focus their expansion plans on strong performing retail assets.”
