2021 Full Year Results

2021 Full Year Highlights

PAN-EUROPEAN PLATFORM CAPTURES RECORD DEMAND TO DRIVE OUTPERFORMANCE AND SUPPORT A POSITIVE OUTLOOK

Commenting on the results, David Sleath, Chief Executive, said:

“2021 was a highly successful year for SEGRO as reflected in our full year results which include a £4.1 billion portfolio valuation uplift and record levels of rental growth. Investor and occupier supply-demand dynamics in the industrial and logistics sector remain very favourable, led by the long-term trends of digitalisation, supply chain resilience and an increasing focus on sustainability.

“Our Responsible SEGRO ambitions have been received positively by our customers, employees and other stakeholders and are becoming well integrated into the way that we run and grow the business. During 2021 we made important progress with our three priority areas of Championing low-carbon growth, Investing in our communities and environments and Nurturing talent.

“Our established and experienced pan-European operating platform remains focused on delivering excellence in customer service which, when combined with the strong relationships and reputation that we have with our stakeholders, provides us with a distinct advantage in an increasingly competitive sector. These capabilities enabled us to invest almost £2 billion in 2021 to further expand our pipeline of opportunities to support future growth. This pipeline, alongside the high quality of our existing portfolio, the compounding effect of rental growth and the strong start we have made in 2022, gives us continued confidence in our ability to drive further sustainable growth in earnings and dividends over the coming years.”

HighlightsA:

  • Adjusted pre-tax profit of £356 million up 20 per cent compared with the prior year (2020: £296 million). Adjusted EPS is 29.1 pence, up 15 per cent (2020: 25.4 pence) including 1.1 pence relating to recognition of performance fees from our SELP joint venture.
  • Adjusted NAV per share up 40 per cent to 1,137 pence (31 December 2020: 814 pence) driven by portfolio valuation growth of 29 per cent, including ERV growth of 13.1 per cent (2020: 2.5 per cent), yield compression, portfolio asset management initiatives and development profits.
  • Strong occupier demand, our customer focus and active management of the portfolio generated £95 million of new headline rent commitments during the period (2020: £78 million), including £49 million of new pre-let agreements, and a 13 per cent average uplift on rent reviews and renewals
