Apr 29 15
Quintain Estates and Development plc has established a second joint venture with Keystone Alto S.A. ("Keystone") to deliver the next 260,000 sq ft residential development at Wembley Park. The joint venture will pay Quintain £19.0 million for the unserviced 1.5 acre plot ("Alto") and, separately, £8.0 million under an agreement for infrastructure to be delivered in the future: a total of £27.0 million. Net of the JV equity commitment, for its respective roles as a 50% partner and land vendor, Quintain will own 50% of the equity in the joint venture and receive cash proceeds of £14.3 million, paid around completion of the transaction, with a further £4.0 million to be paid on completion of the first phase, anticipated in 2017. Two buildings comprising 362 homes will be built on the plot, either side of a private courtyard garden. 120 of the homes will be constructed for Quintain, for which the Company will pay the joint venture £36.8 million. Of this amount, £7.3 million will be paid now and £3.7 million in October, with the balance paid from existing Company resources on practical completion, expected in 2017. These homes will be retained by Quintain and professionally managed as high quality private rental sector ("PRS") accommodation to expand the Group's income. In addition, Quintain's appointment as development and project manager for Alto will generate fee income of approximately £3.7 million over the next two years, further enhancing the Group's earnings.
