Investment summary

In the full year ended 30 June 2017, assets and rental income grew strongly. Dividend cover increased to 77% and with a full-year contribution from recent acquisitions and continuing investment, the manager expects approximately full cover in the current year. As at 30 September (Q118), the property portfolio reached £296.6m (FY17: £282.0m), including revaluation gains (we estimate c £4.5m gross), reflected in further tightening of the net initial yield to 6.69% from 6.75% in June. Q118 EPRA NAV per share increased by 1.4p to 103.3p per share after the payment of 1.570p per share in dividends during the period. An increased 1.6125p Q118 DPS will be paid on 30 November. Passing rent increased by 3.7% in the quarter: 0.6% from rent reviews and 3.1% from acquisitions, of which more are likely as the manager continues to perform due diligence on a strong pipeline of opportunities. The scale of the opportunities is such that additional equity and debt capital support, not in our forecasts, may be required.

Industry outlook

The UK population over the age of 85 is expected to increase by 140% from 2014 to 2039. There is a lack of high-quality care homes of the sort Target invests in, providing ample opportunity to grow the portfolio.
