Warehouse property investor Segro booked an 18% fall in annual profit, though its underlying performance improved on the back of higher rental income. Pre-tax profit for the year through December dropped to £902.0m, down from £1.10bn on-year, principally reflecting lower gains in the value of its property portfolio. Adjusted pre-tax profit rose 10% to £267.5m, buoyed by 4.7% growth in like-for-like rental income. Segro declared a full-year dividend of 20.7p, up 10% on-year. '2019 was another successful year for Segro, with our clear strategy delivering excellent financial and operational results,' chief executive David Sleath said. 'Our high-quality, well-located portfolio of urban and big box warehouses continues to attract a broad range of customers, benefitting from the structural drivers of e-commerce and urbanisation.'
