NewRiver REIT plc (NRR.L) announced Thursday that it has now exchanged conditional contracts to acquire the remaining 50% share in its BRAVO Joint Ventures from subsidiaries of BRAVO II for a cash consideration of 59.4 million pounds

With the deal, NewRiver will gain control over 4 convenience-led shopping centre assets in Belfast, Glasgow, Hastings and Middlesbrough with a total gross asset value of 240 million pounds, representing a topped up net initial yield of 7.3%.

The transaction is expected to increase Funds From Operations in the year to March 2018 by 4.2 million pounds, with a 5.4 million pounds increase in net rental income and a 1.2 million increase pounds in net finance costs.
