Giles Weaver, Chairman, commented: “As a specialist in adding value through development, refurbishment and planning, Helical is not dependent on yield shift to deliver consistently good returns. A 21% net asset value per share increase has led to a doubling of net asset value per share over the last three years. We believe the diversity of projects we have accumulated leave us well placed to outperform in the future”. For further information, please contact:
