PPHE Hotel Group (PPH)

Business description

PPHE Hotel Group (PPHE) is an international hospitality real estate group with a £1.6 billion portfolio of primarily freehold and long leasehold assets in Europe in leading cities, urban markets and resort destinations. PPHE’s primary activity is developing, owning and operating hotels, resorts and campsites providing attractive returns, strong cash flow generation and long term capital appreciation.

Investment summary

PPHE continues to please, with resilient H1 operating results complemented by first-time disclosure of EPRA reporting, which highlights its real estate business with EPRA NAV of £24.21 at June 2018, significantly ahead of the current share price. A fine record of value creation (21% CAGR in NAV over the seven years to end-2017, as newly presented) should underpin the company’s ability to leverage on its assets, in addition to reinvestment potential from £152m excess cash. H1 saw maintained like-for-like EBITDA against a “very strong” comparative in London, PPHE's major market, and renovations in the Netherlands. Encouraging trading in its seasonally stronger H2 supports guidance that 2018 expectations are unchanged. The interim dividend is raised by 45%.

Industry outlook

Security and Brexit uncertainty are concerns, but the London hotel market has shown admirable resilience and benefits from increased tourism owing to sterling weakness. Greater measurable worries are room supply, which is above its long-term trend, and pressures on UK household spending. GL, London's largest hotel owner/operator, has newly confirmed that it continues to “maintain a cautious outlook”, while, per pwc, market RevPAR may be only slightly ahead in 2018 (up +1% in the year to date, per STR).
