Regus Plc – 2009 Interim Management Statement

At the Annual General Meeting which was held on 19th May 2009, John Matthews, Chairman of Regus, the leading global provider of outsourced office spaceserviced officesvirtual offices and meeting rooms, gave the following Interim Management Statement covering the period from 1st January 2009.

“I am pleased to report that Regus has made progress and that the Board is satisfied with financial performance, given the difficult trading environment.

Revenues for the four months to 30th April 2009, (at actual exchange rates) were £387.0m, an increase of 16% over the £334.5m achieved for the same period last year. The number of actual workstations has grown in the first four months by 1,485 to 160,606 with 16 centres being opened, including our 18th centre in Manhattan, Pune in India, Hangzhou in China, and Warsaw in Poland. We have also opened offices in two new countries being Paraguay and Macau, bringing the total number of countries we operate in to 75.

We continue to generate cash with our net cash balance increasing to £227.6m at 30th April 2009. This is despite the strengthening in sterling which reduced our net cash balance by £5.5m and £18.0m being spent to develop our business. Our net cash balance has however benefited from a one off receipt of £18.5m. Subject to shareholder approval at the AGM we will be paying the 2008 final dividend of 1.2p per share on 29th May 2009 to shareholders who were on the register on 1st May 2009 Market conditions remain tough. We are continuing to see pressure on occupancy and price which is impacting net income, although this is partly being offset by the additional revenue opportunities arising from our portfolio of recession busting products and the benefits of our ongoing cost reduction programme. In these more challenging markets we remain confident of our future; we are in the number one market position, we have a truly international spread, we have a flexible business model and we have a strong balance sheet.”

This interim management statement contains certain forward looking statements with respect to the operations of Regus. These statements and forecasts involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend upon circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. There are a number of factors that could cause actual results or developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward looking statements and forecasts.

Bruntwood Has Announced The Completion Of Its £2m Development Of 1 Dale Street Offices, A Grade II Listed Office Building In The Heart Of Liverpool’s Traditional Commercial Quarter

Bruntwood, commercial office space provider, has announced the completion of its £2m development of 1 Dale Street offices, a grade II listed office building in the heart of Liverpool’s traditional commercial quarter.

1 Dale Street offices

The newly developed building has been carefully designed to offer a variety of high specification and cost effective Liverpool office space solutions from 950 to 23,750 sq ft, which would suit companies looking for office space right in the city centre for between 9 and 250 people.

The redeveloped Liverpool offices at 1 Dale Street combine contemporary finishes whilst maintaining the building’s original features, including sash windows, vaulted ceilings and iron columns. A new reception and entrance has now been added which opens out directly onto views of the Nelson monument in Exchange Flags, meaning office customers at the building are connected to one of Liverpool’s busiest commercial areas.

The central location means the offices are conveniently located only 15 minutes drive away from the M53 and 20 minutes from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. The location also offers easy access to the rail networks, with Moorfields and Liverpool Central stations both nearby.

Mark Worthington from CBRE, a retained agent at the building said: “1 Dale Street is a prime example of how the heritage of Liverpool’s buildings can be preserved whilst still bringing them up to a high quality standard of office space. 1 Dale Street provides some of the most individual office space in the city centre and because of this, we’ve already had some strong interest in the offices at the building.”

1 Dale St is Bruntwood’s 11th building in Liverpool and takes its portfolio to 870,000 sq ft. Bruntwood sales surveyor, Colin Forshaw said: “Completing the offices at 1 Dale Street means that not only are we bringing a unique office product to Liverpool, but we can also provide our customers with more flexibility to move throughout our portfolio if their business needs change. Last year we helped over 50 customers cost efficiently up or downsize their office space in Liverpool, within the terms of their lease.”

Bruntwood Confirms That It Is Progressing Well With Its £7m Redevelopment Of The McLaren Office Building In Birmingham’s City Centre

Bruntwood, commercial property company, has announced that it is progressing well with its £7m redevelopment of the McLaren office building in Birmingham’s city centre, and confirmed the scheduled October completion date.

McLaren office building in Birmingham's city centre

Since purchasing the 115,000 sq ft Birmingham office property in April 2008, Bruntwood has successfully refurbished seven office floors and delivered a brand new reception area.

Bruntwood sales surveyor Rob Valentine commented, “We’re delighted with progress so far and our customers are pleased with the improvements we’ve made with the office space in Birmingham. The new reception is a complete transformation. It’s light, bright and spacious and by the end of May we will have installed the new bridge link that will connect McLaren’s entrance with Priory Queensway. This is an important milestone for us and makes access to the office building much more user friendly.”

Having delivered the new reception and a selection of refurbished floors, Bruntwood’s work at the office building in Birmingham city centre is now focused on improving its external appearance. The works, scheduled to be complete by October, will include the installation of brand new spandrel panels, window film and signage, as well as complete gable cleaning, which will give the office building the look of a new build property.

This work has contributed to the offices at McLaren being occupied by customers including Birmingham City Council, Scott Wilson and American Express. The remaining office space is available to let f r o m  300 to 60,000 sq ft, which is large enough to accommodate companies wishing to house f r o m 3 to over 600 staff.

Rob Valentine said, “With experience of very similar office schemes in Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds, we’re confident our work will mean McLaren will continue to prove very popular. Not only this, our competitive rents and flexible leases will mean that occupiers looking to relocate in Birmingham will have access to exceptionally high specification, yet cost-effective office space. Because a lease is with Bruntwood and not the building, it also gives customers the ability to up and downsize throughout our 90 building office portfolio, as and when their business needs change, without penalty.”

Bruntwood are now in talks with a variety of parties regarding the remaining office space at the building, with two companies showing significant interest in two of the 5,500 sq ft floors.

Bruntwood’s Leeds Office Development Proves Popular

Bruntwood, North of England commercial property firm, has announced the letting of an 8,300 sq ft office at 14 King Street, in Leeds’ city centre. Having recently benefited from an extensive £2.3m refurbishment, Bruntwood’s 37,000 sq ft, grade A, office space development will become home to Gatenby Sanderson and Charles Stanley & Co, who are taking 6,500 and 1,800 sq ft respectively.

Bruntwood’s head of sales and development for the offices in Leeds, Craig Burrow, said, “These deals are a great start for us at 14 King Street and we’re delighted to welcome these companies to the Bruntwood portfolio. The building’s already proving popular and with high specification, air conditioned and open plan office space for up to 6,700 sq ft available on flexible and competitive terms, we’re expecting the interest to remain strong. The flexibility of the building also allows us to create offices in Leeds from as little as 355 sq ft, meaning we can provide cost effective office space for businesses looking to accommodate anywhere from three to over 300 people.”

Both Gatenby Sanderson and Charles Stanley & Co’s leases will be with Bruntwood and not the building itself, meaning they both have the opportunity to up and down size throughout Bruntwood’s 90 building office portfolio, as their business requirements change. This ability to expand and contract customers is a key part of Bruntwood’s service oriented approach and something 50 Bruntwood customers have taken advantage of in the past 12 months.

Craig Burrow, said, “Every Bruntwood customer benefits from lease flexibility that’s difficult to find elsewhere. When you combine this with the quality of accommodation and levels of customer service on offer, 14 King Street provides exceptional value for money for those businesses wishing to locate their offices in Leeds’ traditional commercial core.”

14 King Street is Bruntwood’s fourth office in Leeds’ city centre which takes the Leeds offices portfolio to 275,000 sq ft. The other 3 buildings are 99% let, with the exception of the serviced office space and meeting room facilities, all of which are available to hire on an on-going basis at its Westone development on Wellington Street.

Bruntwood Completes Office Space Development At St Hughs In Bootle

Bruntwood, commercial property firm, has announced the completion of the development of St Hugh’s, the company’s first office development in Bootle, Liverpool. The building has undergone an extensive £3.6m transformation both externally and internally, which includes a new reception and some of the 

highest quality office space in Liverpool. The development at St Hugh’s is a 48,000 sq ft, six storey building located on Stanley Road in Bootle town centre.

Colin Forshaw, Bruntwood’s head of sales in Liverpool said, “The quality of the offices at St Hugh’s rivals many city centre alternatives but also offers greater value for money. The building has been designed to cater for businesses with between 1 and 500 people, so will accommodate a wide variety of office space requirements.”

Bruntwood currently has over 1,000 customers and holds a long term promise to respond to any changes in their property needs. The addition of St Hugh’s presents Bruntwood customers with a greater choice should they wish to up or downsize their requirements for office space in Liverpool at any time in the future.

Colin said, “We are committed to investing in Liverpool as a whole, and not just the city centre, so we have no reservations about investing a total of £4.25m in Bootle.”

Bruntwood sales director, Andrew Butterworth, commented, “Completing St Hugh’s means we can offer our Liverpool customers a greater variety in product and price along with greater flexibility to move around our portfolio as they require. Last year we helped 50 customers to expand and contract seamlessly and cost efficiently within the terms of their lease, showing the dedication we have for our customers’ business prosperity.”

All of Bruntwood’s office buildings have the added benefit of an on-site customer service team, who deliver a level of service more typically associated with a 5 star hotel. Bruntwood believes that the close relationships that its service teams have with the customers is one of the main reasons Bruntwood’s customer retention rate is 3 times higher than the national average.

Bruntwood Attracts Major Customers To Newly Refurbished Office Property

Bruntwood, commercial property company, has announced that it has attracted three new office customers to 61 Oxford Street, one of its recently developed office properties in Manchester city centre. PHD North has taken 3,000 sq ft, with economists Roger Tym & Partners, and Seven Architects, taking 2,500 sq ft and 1,000 sq ft respectively.

Bruntwood sales director, Andrew Butterworth, said, “These deals come only 3 months after our refurbishment and re-branding of the Manchester office building, which we’ve owned for over 10 years. We’ve purposely developed the building so it can accommodate a diverse range of office customers in suites, from 450 to 4,500 sq ft. In doing so, we’re giving small to medium sized businesses access to some of the highest quality office space in the city centre at a highly competitive price, all delivered with a level of service that’s difficult to find outside our commercial property portfolio.”

The former cotton mill, built in 1850, has undergone a complete refurbishment to provide high specification office space in a period environment, over five floors. As well as the open plan offices, the building also includes a brand new reception area, exposed beams, columns and brickwork, as well as fully restored sash windows and wrought iron staircase.

Andrew Timms, partner at the building’s agents Edwards & Co. said, “Since its refurbishment, 61 Oxford Street has received much interest from media, marketing and professional firms, resulting in these three new office occupiers. Above and beyond the quality of the office space, this is down to Bruntwood’s customer service, their ability to offer small suites and the commercial flexibility in terms of space and cost; their scale means they can offer all of this without compromising on the quality finishes and character features. We continue to talk to interested parties regarding the remaining office space at the building.”

The recent deals at 61 Oxford Street are testament to the fact Bruntwood continues to successfully let office space to a range of new customers across its portfolio.

Andrew Butterworth said, “This year we aim to let over 250,000 sq ft of offices in Manchester, and we remain optimistic we will achieve this target. One reason our lettings performance remains positive is our financial security which customers are attracted to this because they can be confident we will continue to maintain and manage their office property and deliver the quality of office product and service they expect.”
