Urban Logistics REIT (“ULR”) has disposed of a portfolio of five assets for £30m – equating to a 4.8% exit NIY. The sale price is a 35% uplift on the last balance sheet valuation (Sep-20) or c.+3p/share – a positive for balance sheet values overall. A 78% total return has been achieved on the assets, since acquisition at an average 7.0% NIY.
