2020 Full Year Results
Strategically aligned with long-term structural growth drivers
“Despite the challenges presented by Covid-19, Tritax Big Box built significant momentum in 2020 as the benefits of complementing our strong investment portfolio with our development land bank begin to crystalise. This progress was evidenced in the Group’s strong performance during the year, with extensive letting activity on our development portfolio, increasing values through asset management and the successful recycling of capital. In addition to these active steps that the Manager has taken, we have seen a strengthening in the UK logistics market driven by heightened occupier and investor demand, which we are well placed to capitalise upon in the coming years.
“We believe the positive structural drivers currently being experienced in the UK logistics sector are at an early stage, and these trends will continue to have a favourable lasting impact on our market over the long-term. As a business we have the necessary capabilities and resources to capture this opportunity to deliver long-term sustainable income and capital growth for our shareholders. Progress is expected to continue in 2021, as we drive income and enhance value from the existing portfolio through asset management and rent reviews, and as our development portfolio increasingly contributes to our financial performance. We have seen significant and increasing levels of occupational interest in our development pipeline giving us confidence in our ability to deliver further long-term sustainable growth. We expect to continue to pay an attractive dividend to shareholders, while ensuring we have the capacity to invest in the opportunities that will drive earnings and dividend growth over the coming years.”
