Established in February 2007, Sirius Real Estate Limited was listed on the London Stock Exchange’s (LSE) AIM market three months later.
In 2014, we launched on the AltX of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) before moving on to the main market of the LSE and JSE in 2017. In September 2019, we joined the FTSE250.
With the acquisition of BizSpace in November 2021, we expanded to the UK market and we now own and manage over 140 properties across Germany and the UK.
Sirius converted its UK business to a UK Real Estate Investment Trust ("REIT") on 1 April 2022. The REIT conversion followed the Company’s UK acquisition of BizSpace in November 2021. By entering the UK REIT regime, the Company will no longer be subject to UK corporation tax on income or gains from its property rental business and will be required to pay 90% or more of its UK property rental business income to shareholders annually, as property income distributions (“PIDS”), which can be satisfied by both cash and SCRIP dividends. Shareholders not resident in the UK may be entitled to claim a full or partial refund from HMRC where a treaty dividend rate applies.
Sirius Real Estate completed the acquisition of UK-based BizSpace Group for c. £245m. This provided Sirius with our first expansion into a new geography via the acquisition of a significant portfolio of assets and an established operating platform.
€400m inaugural corporate bond heavily oversubscribed and supported by institutional investors, 1.125% coupon reduces Company’s cost of debt with 5-year term providing a platform for future growth.

Sirius listed on LSE’s & JSE’s main market. Successfully completed a €15 million private placing. The capital raised is invested in the acquisition programme
The placing of €30 million in June 2016 enabled the acquisition of sites in Dresden, Wiesbaden, Krefeld and Dreieich.
In the last four financial years the Company raised €166.5 million in equity from placings on five separate occasions, one of which was executed alongside the successful launch of on to the AltX of the JSE in December 2014, giving Sirius a secondary listing alongside the original AIM listing. The capital raised through these placings enabled Sirius to acquire 14 new business parks, supported by the refinancing of the debt facilities at significantly improved rates and on much longer terms than were previously available.
In January 2012, Sirius acquires the Asset Manager thereby internalising the asset management platform. Andrew Coombs, who joined the Asset Manager in 2010, and Alistair Marks, who had been with the Asset Manager since formation, were subsequently appointed as CEO and CFO of the Sirius Real Estate Limited, respectively. Following internalisation, the primary strategic objective continued to be to improve profitability and strengthen the company’s financial position by disposing of non-core and mature assets, as well as surplus land sales, and refinancing the entire loan book.
Andrew Coombs joined Sirius as Chief Executive Officer of Sirius Facilities GmbH.
Acquisition programme ceased, and focus shifted to increasing occupancy and efficiency. This included a restructuring of the German operating company, a doubling of the sales team and development of the in-house team to improve cost recovery from tenants.
Purchased a further nine business parks in the year to 31 March 2008, and grew the portfolio to 38 business parks over the course of the following year.
Admitted to trading on AIM in May 2007, with a primary capital raise of €328 million initially used to acquire 20 business parks.
