Shaftesbury director doubles stake after trading update

LONDON (ShareCast) – (ShareCast News) – Shaftesbury (Stuttgart: OVW.SGnews) director Sally Walden has doubled her stake in the company after a positive trading update last week.
Walden bought 20,000 shares in the real estate investment trust on Thursday for £169,000.

It takes her stake to 40,000 shares, or 0.01%.

The purchase followed a trading update on Friday, which said the company continued to see strong tenant demand, underpinned by robust footfall and spending, with good progress on its major schemes.

For the period from 1 October 2015 to 4 February 2016, Shaftesbury reported EPRA vacancy of 2% at the end of December compared with 1.6% at the end of September.

“The weeks leading up to, and throughout Christmas and New Year, are traditionally an exceptionally busy period, bringing additional visitors and spending to the West End. Although national trading reports have been mixed, we have seen in our areas robust footfall numbers and spending,” the company said.

Available-to-let vacancy at the end of December comprised 13,200 sq ft of retail, two restaurants, 2,200 sq ft of office space and five apartments.
