(1) For the year ending 27th March 2020 Iceland Foods Limited reported a turnover of £3,191,500,000, a pre-tax profit of £1,400,000 and shareholder funds of £810,700,000 (Source: NorthRow 28/06/2021). Iceland Foods Limited was incorporated in 1973 and now trades from over 900 stores across the UK and 40 stores across Europe.
(2) The lease provides for the rent to be reviewed to the higher of open market rental value or 2.5% per annum compound of the original rent (£89,450) from the 28th February 2005 to the relevant review date. Therefore, at the 2025 review, the rent will increase to a minimum of £146,574.

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.
