(Alliance News) - Warehouse REIT PLC on Monday said that it has sold two assets in separate transactions for a total of GBP13.4 million.

According to the London-based real estate investment trust, which is focused on UK industrial warehouses, the combined price is 3.7% ahead of September's book value, and reflects an average net initial yield of 5.3%.

Firstly, Warehouse REIT sold Warrington South Industrial Estate, a 106,000 square-foot property near Liverpool, for GBP11.6 million. Secondly, it sold Pellon Lane, a 20,000 square-foot warehouse in Halifax near Leeds, for GBP1.8 million.

These disposals bring total sales since April 1 to GBP53.0 million, Warehouse REIT said.

"Strengthening our balance sheet and earnings position by releasing capital from assets which are low yielding or where we have successfully executed our business plan is a key priority for us. As these disposals show, we continue to evaluate all opportunities to do that," said Non-Executive Director Simon Hope.

Warehouse REIT shares were trading 1.3% higher at 85.20 pence each in London on Monday morning.
