On 2 February 2016, PSPI announced that it has exchanged binding contracts to dispose of its Brakel care home property for a gross consideration of €3.0 million. The sale was executed with a company owned by the same beneficial owner as the tenant at Brakel, was concluded under German law and is expected to close within six weeks on completion of re-registration of the property in the appropriate land registry. The asset was sold at the same value used in preparing the Company’s unaudited consolidated results as at 30 June 2015.
As there was no debt secured against the property, the Group will apply the sale proceeds to settle transaction costs (estimated at €0.1 million) with the balance to be used for general working capital purposes pending a proposed return of capital to shareholders.
Patrick Hall, the Chairman of PSPI, reports that: “The Company is pleased to announce a further disposal after a period of protracted negotiation. The Company will make announcements on progress of any further disposals, as and when it is appropriate.”
Smith Square Partners acted as financial adviser to PSPI.
