The Mall Limited Partnership (the “Fund”) Asset Sales
19 June 2008
The Mall Fund has today agreed to sell three assets to the Carlyle Group for £286 million, representing an initial yield of 6 per cent.
The properties are shopping centres in Chester, Epsom and Edgware, with the sale expected to complete in early July.
Morley’s Karen Fox, Fund Manager for the Mall Fund said: “The proceeds from the sale will be available to reduce gearing in the Fund, further strengthening its financial position following the successful open offer which went unconditional earlier today.
The managers are now able to totally focus on driving forward performance from a position of far greater financial strength”.
