As per philanderer's previous post... Imperial Brands on the climb as backers favour £2bn sell-off - HTTPS://www.standard.co.uk/business/imperial-brands-on-the-climb-as-backers-favour-2bn-selloff-a3845296.html Some of Imperial Brands’ biggest investors have backed chief executive Alison Cooper’s plan to sharpen the tobacco group’s strategy. Cooper unveiled a £2 billion sell-off of non-core brands on May 9 alongside forecast-beating results. One top 10 shareholder, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Standard it was “supportive” of the new strategy and felt “reassured” by the company’s performance. It said share price spiral had been “extreme”. Another leading shareholder said: “It’s taken the monkey off their back a little bit. Alison is doing more of the right things than not.” Imperial declined to comment. Shares in the Cohiba cigar owner have clawed back some of the losses that led to calls for a shake-up. They are up 15% over the past month, having fallen by a third before Cooper unveiled her proposal. Another shareholder, Saracen, said the sell-off should “alleviate concerns about the balance sheet and lead to greater focus and efficiency”. However it questioned Imperial's commitment to grow dividends by 10% a year, saying the policy was “unsustainable”.

Sorry, I was being a little presumptuous. Politics sometimes poisons me! I am tired of London/South West centric UK.... Sounds like you have a very nice place in Mid-Wales and you are selling in London at the right time. Are you subscriber to the FT? There is a very witty article about London property that you would probably find amusing. I did.

Quite so Minerve - I happen to live in Mid Wales. For £1m you tend to get something rather more substantial than the thing which I sold in Shad Thames. The entire flat would fit into our entrance hall!

"Polaris - owning property of £1m + is no biggie in this day and age." Around London maybe not. But Londoners have no idea that the rest of the country isn't the same.

Polaris - owning property of £1m + is no biggie in this day and age. However, selling one is rather more difficult than you seem to imply. For a start the selling costs are huge and dealing with antiquated elements such as Solicitors requiring answers to irrelevent questions. Anyway, I have never known a purchase take place in fewer than 5 days where an advance is required. Having recently sold a flat in London by Shad Thames - a simple transaction, which as a seller without any loan on the property and a cash buyer not requiring a loan we had just 2 parties involved..... Solicitors required all sorts of additional information including money laundering information and as well as answers toi enquiries before contract. And then separate permission was needed from the freeholder, so that brought into play another outfit of solicitors who needed payment up front and a vendor pack, again pre-paid and so it went on and on - 5 months it took which, frankly is unacceptable. Actually, the single element that has killed the residential property market was the Stamp Duty Land Tax increases effected a couple of years ago.

Property is a locked asset. Selling to rent is one way to unlock the value. It does require that the capital be put to good use to offset the rental agreement, but removes things like maintenance costs and infrastructure upkeep - that all passes to the 'landlord'. It can be desperation but it can also be a way to streamline operations and imrove efficiency. I think that you will find this measure to release locked asset value will become quite the norm in the private and personal sectors as we go forward. What is the point of owning a £1+m house as a pensioner and living hand to mouth? You have an asset but it is not working for you at all. This thing of passing your wealth on to your children is OK, as long as it does not affect your standard of living, IMO. I'd sell the house to rent back if i thought it would unlock enough value for my lifetime and still give a reasonable amount to pass on. I've just received a small windfall from an elder relative passing on. What did i do with the sum? I invested it. A lot of people would just have blown the sum i recieved on some new electrical items and a holiday. Where is the long term return in that?

sell your property at the peak I say - UK retail space is going to crash (as is domestic space).

I don't think it's desperation, it's an efficiency measure. However, would question whether the current dividend policy is in the longer term interests of the Company, my view is it's not. Appreciate many will disagree with that view.

I agree warranty. Smacks of desperation when you sell your house and have to rent!

Never like to see a company divesting of its property, always think it sends the wrong message. I understand making economies but selling your head office seems an unnecessary thing to do to me. I'd rather they maintain assets than dispose of them.

Imperial Brands to sell and leaseback Bristol HQs for £70m - HTTPS://www.propertyweek.com/news/imperial-brands-to-sell-and-leaseback-bristol-hqs-for-70m-/5096567.article Imperial Brands has appointed JLL to find a buyer for its two offices at 121 and 123 Winterstoke Road in Bristol on a sale-and-leaseback basis. The two office buildings, which total 94,000 sq ft and 50,000 sq ft respectively, were completed between 2013 and 2014 and serve as the multinational tobacco brand’s headquarters. Offers for 121 Winterstoke are expected to be in excess of £53.5m, while 123 Winterstoke is believed to be offered with an asking price of £17m+. As part of the sale, Imperial will take out a long-term lease on the properties, which will remain the company’s HQ. “We continually look at how best we can optimise our assets and this transaction allows us to capitalise on the current strong demand for commercial property in Bristol and realise value for shareholders,” said Imperial’s chief financial officer Oliver Tant. “We have a long history in Bristol and are proud to have our global headquarters here. The sale and leaseback arrangement underscores our long-term commitment to the city and will release funds to support the future growth of the business.” Nick Compton, head of corporate capital markets at JLL, added: “We have worked closely with Imperial to create two leaseback packages that are tailored to the company’s future needs and objectives. We anticipate the scarcity of such investments at this lot size to generate significant interest from both national and international investors. The sale process is expected to close during the third quarter of 2018.”
