LONDON & ASSOCIATED PROPERTIES PLC (“LAP”):
AGREEMENT TO SELL BRIXTON MARKETS FOR £37.25M
LAP today announces that it has exchanged contracts to sell both Market Row and Brixton Village in
Brixton (“Brixton Markets”) for £37.25 million cash to a private group of property companies.
Brixton Markets were let in their entirety in 2011 to Market Village Ltd and currently produce a
combined net income of c £1.2 million per annum.
LAP acquired Brixton Markets as part of the Atlantic Group of Companies in 2006. Their last
combined published book value at December 2016 was £24.5 million. £16 million of the proceeds
will be used to repay debt, and the balance will be added to our cash reserves.
John Heller, Chief Executive, said: “Brixton Markets were in a state of decline when we acquired
them, with significant levels of voids. Following a programme of intense and proactive
management, we are proud that today they are home to arguably the most vibrant restaurant scene
in London. We will now look for new projects where we can use our management skills to create
similar strong levels of growth”.
