Property Week, in association with Brook Intelligence, has produced this comprehensive company report on UK REIT Segro plc.
In November 2011 Segro’s new executive management team set out a new strategy to address areas of historical underperformance and deliver better returns.
Segro ended its last financial year with a loss of £202m, up from £54m the year before. The group’s strategic priority is to reshape the portfolio and focus on high quality modern warehousing, light industrial and data centre assets.

Segro says it expects to continue to benefit from the growth in e-retailing, local distribution and electronic data storage requirements. Following a period of divestments, the group still has around £580m of non-core assets remaining and is targeting to shed between £300m-£500m of assets in FY13. Segro says it wants France, Germany and Poland to account for a greater share of its property portfolio.
