The brewer and pub operator said the historic EBITDA for the 140 tenanted and 15 managed pubs, mainly across the south of England, was £5.3m.

 

Greene King also revealed it had entered into a beer supply agreement for Greene King ales across the entire Admiral English pub estate, which will total 1950 following the deal.

 

Rooney Anand, chief executive of Greene King, said: "Greene King's continuous drive to improve the overall quality of our estate has meant that we have long been sellers as well as buyers of pub assets."

 

He added: "Today's deal marks another step in this strategy at a sensible price and we are also pleased with the supply agreement for our ales into the enlarged Admiral estate."
