Company news

Investment summary

The most recent quarterly NAV statement shows an NAV total return of 4.1% in the three months ending 31 December 2017. The increased DPS declared of 0.875p per share or 3.5p annualised is c 4% on the share price, 126% covered by income earnings. The investment portfolio saw a 2.1% like-for-like revaluation gain, supporting 3.1% growth in EPRA NAV to 88.6p per share. Occupancy was maintained at 95% and lettings during the period were 1.9% ahead of expected rental values (ERV). Since the quarter end, at Tower Wharf in Bristol, two new leases have been signed at 4% above ERV, taking its occupancy above 90%, compared with 64% at acquisition in August. A general supply and demand imbalance in regional office and industrial property, with limited development should support rent growth, while ERV is close to £5m ahead of the current contracted run rate, represents significant potential from further void reduction, rent reviews and lease renewals.

Industry outlook

Regional occupier demand is generally firm, driven by continuing economic growth and business relocation away from London, while new supply remains limited. Meanwhile, the yield spread between the regions and London remains historically wide, representing a clear potential for narrowing.
