…and British Land says worst is over as it reports strong results

first_imgThe company’s net asset value dropped by 20% to 1344p a share in the year to 31 March, which compared with analysts’ consensus forecast of 1280p. The driver of the fall was a 10% drop in the value of the portfolio to £13.47bn, with the blended net equivalent yield rising by 92 basis points to 5.6%. In British Land’s fourth quarter – the first three months of this year the drop in values slowed to just 2.2%. The London office portfolio dropped by 6.4% in value, while retail fell by 12.1%. Of the three major assets, the Regent’s Place office estate near Euston was the best performer, rising 1.3% in value over the year to £702m. The Meadowhall shopping centre near Sheffield dropped by 9.6% to £1.5bn and the Broadgate estate in the City of London fell by 11.5% to £2.7bn. Underlying pretax profit, excluding the effect of the revaluation, was up 11% to £284m and the full-year dividend was raised by 72% to 35p a share.‘We believe that property pricing is now generally much more supportable than at the market peaks when we were large scale sellers and that the worst of yield correction ‘should’ be behind us,’ said chief executive Stephen Hester. ‘The slowdown of price declines in the last quarter supports this view. ‘However, markets have often been known to overshoot in both directions and we do expect a further decline in the current year.’last_img read more

IN SPORT.ES Corriere dello Sport: Pogba has said yes to Juventus return Upd. at 18:01 Sport EN Also, in ‘The Sun’, the coach went even further in his attack. “You are like a person with a flu, with a virus, in a closed room – you pass that virus to the others.” FIFA investigated Mino Raiola after Paul Pogba joined Man United 03/12/2018center_img “You don’t play. You don’t respect the players and supporters. And you kill the mentality of the good honest people around you,” is what Mourinho told his midfielder according to the ‘Daily Record’. Man Utd, who were 2-0 down to Southampton at one stage, pulled it back to take away a point. However that doesn’t help their title challenge much as they slipped to 7th place, 16 points behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. This isn’t the first time Mourinho has publicly aired his opinion on Pogba. The player is reportedly tired of the situation and wants a transfer away next summer. This should come as no surprise when you remember that the French star pushed for a late move to Barcelona after the conclusion of the World Cup.
