Maya Capital acquired the asset in February 2015, after which it improved the certainty of the asset’s income profile by signing a new lease, unlocking six years of certain income. Through this active asset management over the last four years, Maya successfully implemented value-enhancing strategies and was able to increase the property’s value by c.50%, generating a total return far in excess of its target. This disposal is the fourth successful sale on this strategy. Maya is still looking to acquire more assets in the £3m to £30m range in regional UK markets for its clients.
“This disposal underlines that there remains strong appetite from investors for sorted-out office assets, despite Brexit uncertainty. In negotiating a successful lease regear, we were able to generate significant value for our investors, a fund advised by GWM Capital Advisors LLP, part of the GWM Group.”
Maya Capital was advised by Gerald Eve on this transaction.
