£36.5 million of MLI acquired across seven estates since 1 April 2021

Stenprop, the UK multi-let industrial (“MLI”) property company, announces that is has acquired, in
two separate transactions, Whitacre Industrial Park in Huddersfield and a portfolio of five MLI estates
located across the UK, for a total consideration of £15.9 million. The combined purchase price reflects
a net initial yield of 7.2% and a capital value of £64 per sq ft.

Comprising five purpose built MLI estates, the Duke Portfolio totals 225,139 sq ft, with an average unit
size of 3,300 sq ft, and is currently 82% let to 54 tenants, a mix of local and national businesses. The
portfolio generates a total annual passing rent of £1,050,000, equating to an average rent of £5.69
psf. Purchased from M&G Real Estate for £13.6 million, the individual assets are: Two estates both
called Acorn Industrial Estate in Hull; Corringham Road Industrial Estate in Gainsborough; Motherwell
Food Park in Bellshill; and Caldwellside Industrial Estate in Lanark.

In a second off market transaction, Stenprop has acquired the 24,730 sq ft Whitacre Industrial Park
for £2.3 million. The property adjoins Stenprop’s existing estate in Huddersfield, Ellis Hill Industrial
Estate, which was acquired in December 2018. It currently generates a total annual passing rent of
£170,166 across 14 fully let units, reflecting a passing rent of £6.88 psf. The estate extends to c. 1.7
acres which, when combined with Ellis Hill Industrial Estate, will create a sizable holding and
management efficiencies.

Following these acquisitions, Stenprop’s MLI portfolio now totals in excess of 6.3 million square feet
across 90 estates. Having recently completed the sale of Hermann Quartier shopping centre in Berlin,
MLI now accounts for 83%* of Stenprop’s total portfolio as it remains on target to be a fully focused
MLI REIT by the end of this financial year.

Will Lutton, Head of Investment at Stenprop, commented: “We are confident that adding these MLI
assets, in undersupplied regional locations, will enable us to significantly grow the rents over time
through the application of our smart lease solution and management platform.”

Stenprop was represented by CBRE on the acquisition of the Duke Portfolio and Ereira Mendoza on
Whitacre Industrial Park.
