Director dealings: Workspace chairman makes share purchase

By Iain Gilbert

Date: Thursday 06 Aug 2020

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Workspace revealed on Thursday that chairman Stephen Hubbard had acquired 8,350 ordinary shares in the FTSE 250-listed office space provider.
Hubbard, who took over as chairman in late January, purchased the shares on Wednesday at an average price of 591.43p each, for a total value of 49,384.70.

Workspace said in July that customer demand had improved in the first quarter but that activity remains well below pre-Covid levels.

The company also said that enquiries in June rose to 765 from 272 in April. However, average monthly enquiries in the first quarter were 506 versus 1,060 in the same period a year ago, while monthly average lettings dropped to 43 from 121.

Cash collection of rent due for the first quarter is now at 75%, net of rent reductions and deferrals and the 50% rent reduction offered to business centre customers ended at the end of June.

As of 1645 BST, Workspace shares were down 0.84% at 590p.
