New Aviva debt facility

As part of our ongoing management of our capital structure, Big Yellow decided in January to increase its borrowing with its long-standing lender Aviva. 

We are therefore pleased to announce that we have completed a 7 year debt facility with Aviva of £35 million at an all-in cost of 1.96%, secured over the existing Aviva security pool of 15 stores.  The all-in cost reduces to 1.91% following the installation of 50 kWh capacity solar panels at three of the stores. 

The total debt facilities from Aviva are now £117.5 million of which £82.5 million will continue to amortise down to £60 million over the remaining seven years of the loan.

This new facility provides the Group with headroom of cash and undrawn bank facilities of £73 million. 

The average cost of debt on drawn facilities is now 2.6% and the marginal cost of RCF bank debt remains at 1.35%

The Board has over the last few years worked to ensure a spread of debt maturity dates and to procure debt from a range of providers. The Group's earliest maturity is on its £70 million M&G loan in June 2023 and the Group's debt has an average maturity of 4.9 years.
