Investment summary

FY18 performance was strong, driven by asset management, and reflected in lettings success at recently completed refurbishments. NAV total return was 28.3% reflecting 25% growth in NAV per share from 183p to 230p and increasing dividends (full year DPS declared +12% to 5.6p). Contracted rents increased 21% to £6.9m in FY18 and further significant letting progress since year-end adds an additional c £800k. Material income upside to an estimated rental value of £9.9m remains, with around half of the upside represented by two recently refurbished assets for which advanced leasing negotiations are underway. We look for leasing progress to have a further positive impact on income, valuations and NAV during this year and next, reflected in our increased estimates.

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.
