Sirius buys four business park assets and one land parcel for €84.8m

Sirius Real Estate has acquired four business park assets and one land parcel for €84.8 million.

The acquisitions are located in Oberhausen, Frankfurt, Heiligenhaus and Öhringen and provide over 150,000 sqm of lettable space. In addition, the company has acquired a land parcel adjacent to its existing asset in Neuruppin.

”The properties have been acquired using proceeds of the company’s inaugural €400 million corporate bond issuance that completed in June 2021,” said the company in apress release

Sirius said together the acquisitions generate day one net operating income (NOI) of €3.4 million per annum, representing a blended EPRA net initial yield of 4.1% at occupancy of 59%. ”With 62,000 sqm of vacant space, the assets provide an opportunity to grow income through the letting up of vacant space, accretive refurbishment and selective development.”

“With our strong cash position, Sirius continues to deliver on an attractive pipeline of opportunities generated by our in-house acquisitions team. The new assets provide a mix of warehouse, production, and office space that we know works well for our platform and our customers. The assets are in well-established locations that benefit from strong SME demand and growth potential, as well as synergies with existing Sirius business park sites,” said Andrew Coombs, Chief Executive Officer of Sirius Real Estate.

“Whilst the assets primarily represent an opportunity for the company to utilise its operating platform to drive the take up of lettable space and reduce service charge leakage, significant refurbishment and development opportunities also exist to provide further potential for value creation,” he added.
