In a statement, TCS said: “The purchase price of £12m represents an initial yield of over 12.5% on the passing income. With lease expiries in 2019 and 2020 the yield will reduce to around 9%, a strong and sustainable return for a city-centre asset. The purchase will be funded from TCS’s existing resources and planned disposals”
