Bisichi Mining PLC (“Bisichi”) today announces it has formed a joint venture that has exchanged contracts to acquire the freehold of five shops in West Ealing, London.

Bisichi Mining Plc and London & Associated Properties PLC, a 41.52% shareholder of Bisichi, will each own 45% of the joint venture, with the remaining 10% owned by Metroprop Real Estate Ltd.

The shops produce a current rent of c£140,000 per annum and have planning consent for 20 flats at first and second floor.  Four flats have already been built and are currently vacant.

The total consideration paid by the joint venture for the shops, before transaction and development costs, will be £5.6 million of cash. Bisichi’s share of the consideration will be funded out of existing cash resources.

Andrew Heller, Bisichi’s Managing Director, commented: “This is an exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial block of shops in a rapidly improving part of West London.  The portfolio is a five-minute walk from West Ealing Crossrail station and we expect values there to continue to rise over the medium term.  I look forward to updating shareholders as the development progresses”.

For the year ended 31 December 2019, I am pleased to report that your company achieved earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of £5.9million (2018: £8.6 million) and operating profit before depreciation, fair value adjustments and exchange movements (Adjusted EBITDA) of £7.4million (2018: £9.1million). These results can be attributed mainly to the strong performance from our South African mining and processing operations. Consistent production from Black Wattle Colliery, our South African coal mining operation, and strong demand for our coal, particularly in the domestic market, impacted positively on the overall results for the Group during the year. Further details on the Group’s performance during the financial year can be found within the Mining Review and Financial & Performance Review sections of this report.
