(1) For the year ending 31st August 2018, Boots UK Limited reported a turnover of £6,790,000,000, pre-tax profits of £398,000,000 and a total net worth of £875,000,000 (Source: Experian Group 19/09/2019). Boots is the largest pharmacy health and beauty chain in the UK and as at 31st August 2018 had 2,485 stores across the UK (Source: www.boots-uk.com/about-boots-uk/about-boots/boots-in-numbers/ 20/09/2019).
(2) The current lease is for a term of 15 years and four months expiring 21/07/2020, however a 5 year reversionary lease has been signed from expiry of the current term until 21/07/2025 at a rebased rent of £10,501 p.a.x.
(3) For the purpose of clarification, the current passing rent is £12,932 p.a.x. The current lease provides a fixed rental increase to £13,126 p.a.x from 1st April 2020. The seller has agreed to adjust the completion monies so that the property will effectively produce £13,126 p.a.x from the completion of sale. At the commencement of the reversionary lease on 21/07/2020, the rent will rebase to £10,501 p.a.x and the tenant will benefit from a three month rent free period. The seller has agreed to adjust the completion monies so the sale will effectively produce £10,501 p.a.x. from the commencement of the reversionary lease.

If you are the successful bidder, Acuitus requires a separate payment of £1,000 inclusive of VAT as a buyer's administration charge payable to Acuitus Limited upon exchange of contracts. A VAT receipt will be provided upon payment.

Due to the current restrictions in movement throughout the UK, the property may not have been inspected by Acuitus. Some photographs may not be current and these will be dated where this is the case. Plans showing nearby occupiers and mention of nearby occupiers may reflect a dated situation as some tenants are not currently in occupation. Floor areas and accommodation details are likely to have been obtained from VOA.Gov.UK and the Vendor.
