Company news

Investment summary

Picton delivered a solid performance in the three months to December 2018 (Q319), generating an NAV total return of 1.2% (or a compound annual 4.9%). The 0.875p quarterly DPS, annualising at 3.5p per share was 123% covered by income earnings. The portfolio value and net asset value both edged up, with NAV per share increasing 0.3% to 92.5p. There were no portfolio transactions during the period but active asset management continued, aimed at capturing the significant reversionary income potential contained in the portfolio (£6.4m at H119). Portfolio performance continues to benefit from an overweight in industrial and regional office property, where market rents and valuations have continued to grow, and a significant underweighting of retail and leisure (with no shopping centre exposure), where rents and values are under pressure. With moderate (c 25%) gearing and £26m of undrawn debt facilities, Picton is well placed to seize any opportunities that may emerge amidst increased Brexit uncertainty.

Industry outlook

The supply demand balance for regional office and industrial property remains generally firm, and a positive yield spread between the regions and London offers potential for further narrowing. Parts of the retail sector are displaying clear signs of stress.
