Investment summary

With the recent acquisition of two high quality, purpose built homes (one a forward funding development and one a pre-let forward acquisition), Target has effectively now committed all of the (£94m gross) equity proceeds from the February capital raise. Undrawn debt capital facilities remain, and with a continuing strong acquisition pipeline remains, management expects to make further announcement shortly. Q418 EPRA NAV total return was 2.2%, including 1.6125p of DPS and a further increase in EPRA NAV per share to 105.7p, benefiting from revaluation gains. With investor interest in care home assets remaining strong, Target is taking a disciplined approach to acquisitions. It is assembling a diversified portfolio which is differentiated by its focus on modern, high quality, purpose-built assets, nearly all with wet-room facilities, an essential ingredient in delivering attractive and sustainable long-term returns. Our forecasts 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.
