The Company has continued to grow in size over the last three months with a
portfolio value of over 700m at 31 December 2006 following improving property
values as well as the successful acquisition of a further 8 properties in early
December, one of which was sold immediately. The successful placing of 26.5m
shares to fund the portfolio purchase has also contributed to an increase in the
NAV to 418.3m.
In addition the disposal of the Scorpio Inns Portfolio was completed during the
period at a premium to the September 2006 valuation.
The property portfolio will next be valued by an external valuer during March
2007 and the NAV per share as at 31 March 2007 will be issued in April 2007.
The Company will prepare its first Annual Report to 31 December 2006, and this
will be issued to shareholders in April 2007. The figures at that date are
therefore subject to audit.
