Investment summary

Palace Capital shareholders have approved the significant acquisition of RT Warren, with a mixed use investment portfolio valued at £71.8m, and the issue of shares to fund it. Management has built a strong track record of value creation from previous acquisitions and expects its management of these newly acquired assets to yield similar results. That potential is not reflected in our revised estimates with the effect that earnings and NAV are diluted. Our dividend forecasts remain the same, and fully covered, such that Palace retains a highly attractive yield and discount to NAV. The increased market capitalisation and intention to seek a Main Market listing are likely to broaden Palace’s appeal to a wider investor base.

Industry outlook

The regional occupier market is reported to be healthy and we continue to expect Palace’s geographical and sector focus, as well as the relatively high yields on the portfolio, to provide some protection from potential macroeconomic headwinds, including those related to Brexit, especially compared to property in London.
