UPDATE ON RENT COLLECTION
SEGRO plc (“SEGRO” or the “Group”) today updates the market on its continued strong rent collection for the full year to 31 December 2020 and the first quarter of 2021.
For the year ending 31 December 2020, to date we have collected 98 per cent of all rents.
In respect of UK rents payable in advance relating to the first quarter of 2021, as at 14 January, we had received 88 per cent of the £63 million of rent due. This represents a higher collection level than at the equivalent time in each of the three previous quarters.
We expect the substantial balance of outstanding rents to be paid by the end of the quarter with the majority now due to be paid monthly.
