KCR issued 4,434,570 shares at 70p.

Dominic White, Chief Executive of KCR said: "The Company has made solid progress in scaling the business in 2018, whilst also adding both rental and capital value to its portfolio. The strategic partnership with Inland Homes is also bearing fruit, with two acquisitions completed since joining forces in May and further opportunities through Inland being analysed.

"We continue to examine potential acquisitions that will build value and revenue, with one currently in the latter stages of negotiation.  At the same time, we will augment rental income significantly during 2019, having increased the number of rental units and upgraded properties.  The Board is encouraged by the recent achievements and looks forward to reporting on further positive developments in the coming months."
