Helical Bar profits top £100m as it reaps benefit of property boom

May 30, 2014


PROPERTY developer Helical Bar said yesterday that pre-tax profits topped 100m for the first time last year after selling some of its major London developments.

The group made 101.7m in profit in the year to 31 March compared with 5m in 2013, boosted by 65m of development earnings including the sale of Brickfields in White City to Imperial College.

Its net asset value per share rose by 18.6 per cent to 313p while the like-for-like value of its properties was up 8.9 per cent to 802m.

"We have had an outstanding year," chief exec Mike Slade said. "No doubt there will be a few blips along the way, but we remain positive on the prospects for our market place. We continue to focus on London offices and high yielding regional property for the investment portfolio while building out the London development programme."
