Industrials REIT, the UK multi-let industrial (“MLI”) property company, announces that it has
completed two MLI acquisitions.

The total consideration for the acquisitions is £17.01 million and reflects a blended net initial yield
(“NIY”) of 5.8% and an average capital value of £98 per sq ft. These purchases add another 173,000
sq ft of MLI space, and £1.06 million of annualised rent to the Company’s portfolio at average passing
rents of £6.61 psf.

As a result of these acquisitions and the previously announced (and now completed) CHF12.5 million
(£9.9 million) disposal of the property in Lugano, Switzerland, Industrials REIT’s MLI portfolio now
accounts for 95% of total assets.

The assets acquired were as follows:

Beacon Business Park in Caldicot has been acquired for £7.9 million, reflecting a NIY of 6.0% and a
capital value of £87 psf. The property comprises 90,847 sq ft of MLI space across 23 units ranging in
size from 1,000 sq ft to 25,000 sq ft and generates rent of £506,720, equating to £5.73 per sq ft. The
estate is 97% occupied and the vendor is providing a six-month guarantee on the vacant unit, which
has already generated strong interest. This purpose-built, modern industrial estate sits in an excellent
location within the broader Severn Bridge Industrial Estate in Caldicott, South Wales. Severn Bridge
Industrial Estate is located in close proximity to the M4 Motorway and the M4/M5 Interchange,
providing easy access to South Wales, Southwest England and the Midlands. The area is characterised
by low vacancy levels for industrial space and is experiencing strong growth in demand, particularly
for leases in the 1,500 to 10,000 sq ft range.

At Belmont Industrial Estate, Durham, a further three industrial terraces comprising Redlake House,
Ottery House and Waldon House have been acquired for a combined value of £9.11 million, reflecting
a NIY of 5.7% and a capital value of £110 psf. These acquisitions add a further 31 units across 82,538
sq ft of MLI space and generate an annual rent of £550,000, reflecting an average rent of £7.71 per
sq ft in addition to the 136,000 sq ft, 37-unit estate the Company bought in this location in November
2020. The three additional terraces are 87% occupied by 26 tenants and the vendor is providing a six-
month guarantee on the vacant units. Belmont Industrial Estate is strategically located at Junction 62
of the A1(M) and just 2 miles from Durham City Centre. The light industrial vacancy rate across County
Durham and Tees Valley is currently very low, creating an excellent environment for continued high
levels of occupation and future rental growth.

Will Lutton, Head of Investment at Industrials REIT, commented: “With these acquisitions we have
added a new, high quality MLI estate to our portfolio as well as consolidating our holding at Belmont
Industrial Estate in Durham. We have identified several opportunities to grow income and asset value
from these estates by leasing up the existing vacancy utilising our Industrials Hive operating platform.”
