Investment summary

As a result of investor demand and the strong pipeline of investment opportunities, £50m was raised from the share placing at 109p, exceeding the £40m initially targeted. Target acquired two development homes for £37m ahead of the placing close, fully deploying its previous capital resources. It has since acquired an operational home for £13.8m, completing the £51m of “imminent” acquisitions targeted by end-November. All of these assets are high quality, purpose-built homes, equipped with en-suite wet-room facilities and generous communal space, of the type that differentiate Target’s investment policy. They are let on long RPI-linked leases and have further diversified the tenant base. Due diligence is continuing on a further near-term pipeline of c £28m, as well as a number of other opportunities. Our revised forecasts continue look for the dividend to be fully covered in FY20, as the investments we anticipate by end-FY19 make a full contribution to earnings.

Industry outlook

The UK population over the age of 85 is expected to increase by 140% from 2014 to 2039 which, combined with a current shortage of high-quality care homes, suggests a strong investment demand in years to come.
