About Sirius Real Estate

Sirius is a property company listed on the main and premium market of the London Stock Exchange and the main board of the JSE. It is a leading owner and operator of branded business and industrial parks providing conventional space and flexible workspace in Germany and the U.K. As of 30 September 2023, the Group’s portfolio comprised 139 assets that led to 9,248 tenants with a total book value of over €2 billion, generating a total annualized rent roll of €184.2 million. Sirius also holds a 35% stake in Titanium, its €350+ million German-focused joint venture with clients of AXA IM Alts.

The Company’s strategy centers on acquiring business parks at attractive yields and integrating them into its network of sites – both under the Sirius and BizSpace names and alongside a range of branded products. The business then seeks to reconfigure and upgrade existing and vacant space to appeal to the local market via intensive asset management and investment and may then choose to refinance or dispose of assets selectively once they meet maturity, to release capital for new investment. This active approach allows the Company to generate attractive returns for shareholders through growing rental income, improving cost recoveries and capital values, and enhancing returns through securing efficient financing terms.
