About Circle Property Plc

Circle is amongst the best performing quoted UK real estate companies having delivered 85% NAV growth and a 105% total return (NAV growth and dividends) since IPO in 2016.

Circle focusses on acquiring assets in regional cities, many of which have significant office supply constraints, and on office assets with active management potential (refurbishment opportunities, under-rented or vacant properties or short leases), rather than just maximising initial rental yields.

Circle is not a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) and can actively recycle proceeds from asset sales into its refurbishment and redevelopment pipeline, as well as future investment opportunities, therefore targeting a broader range of returns for shareholders, which are primarily driven by NAV growth.

As well as already delivering substantial increases in NAV, the Company's portfolio has significant reversionary potential with current total estimated rental values of GBP10.92 million per annum, compared to contracted rent of GBP8.70 million at 31 March 2020. The Company has a portfolio of 13 regional commercial property investment and development assets in the UK valued at GBP132.15 million as at 31 March 2021.

* valuation figures stated after deducting the value of Power House, Davy Avenue, Milton Keynes (being GBP3.3 million as at 31 March 2020 and GBP3.25 million as at 30 September 2020) which was sold by the Company for GBP3.55 million in March 2021.
