Its core estate saw like-for-like net income growth of 1%. A total of 177 pubs have been identified to operate under the Retail contract, with 97 pubs trading or in progress of conversion at 20 August 2016.

Its property estate has been externally valued by GVA at circa £2,030 million, circa £850 million in excess of nominal net debt. The 2016 property valuation represents a net uplift of approximately £40 million on the prior year valuation, after accounting for pub disposals. Net nominal debt to property valuation has reduced to 58% (August 2015: 64%). Its strategic disposal programme is now complete, having delivered ahead of expectations. Duncan Garrood, chief executive of Punch Taverns, said: “The business has ended the year with a solid set of results, in line with our expectations, and which reflects the completion of our strategic disposal programme. The roll-out of our retail division is progressing well and we now plan to accelerate the roll-out to c.150 pubs per year. I look forward to updating the market fully when we present our full set of results on 8 November.”
