SteMis the probably with detailed research is its dependant on historic data which has a high degree of reliability in it due to stability across the period. For now you can forecast with that data but you need to scenario test what might happen - lets be honest none of us really knows currently but what we can do on these boards is postulate our theories and debate them and support each other so we can make our decisions. So your assessment is useful to all of us as its shows what worst case is and it saves me having to do it so thanks. My concern is RNS's are going to dry up as there all putting out holding statements (i appreciate they cant do much else) and we will be even more unsighted as to whats happening but until we see light at the end of the tunnel this is the new norm. So as i see it volatility will settle down for a while and it will need a good or bad event to provide another trigger to either sell or buy.

Where do you get 35% from. The last reported LTV was 26% and they since raised £7 million in cash with a placing at 97p.

@SteMiS - you weren't here in 2008 if you think a 30% devaluation isn't possible! And try asset value when tenants aren't paying rent, or are negotiating far lower to stay in business. Or when there isn't the cashflow to pay the interest. Again - there's been a seismic shift happened right before our eyes, from the owners to the tenants, and coming partly from govnt diktat. How serious it is depends on: 1. How long Covid-19 disruption lasts/whether it returns later; 2. On consumer behaviour post-Covid & how long before everything returns to "normal". This isn't AEWU-specific, it affects all REITs. AEWU are at least only c.25% retail/leisure, surely the hardest hit sector.

AEWU's borrowing is a loan (from majority government owned) RBS expiring in October 2023. The loan to net asset value covenant is 55%. It is currently 34%. To breach covenant would need a 30% devaluation of property. Does anybody not do detailed research anymore?

The banks are not charities and have a fudiciary duty to their own shareholders. If convenants are breached they'll want their pound of flesh.

Landlords are stuck - no new tenants to take over. Even without the govnt intervention, is little choice but to sing for it. Exception is the under=£51k rateable value, where the tenant gets given - given! - £10k of taxpayer money, even if their rent is only £50/week. Altho that's so much cash for some, they may simply walk away. Issue, of course, is whether the debt holders also sing for it. Banks have been told to be generous, and shareholders last in line, but what about bondholder payments? Has the potential to become an almighty mess, & I don't see it remotely reflected in share prices yet.

I am a tenant in a business centre and discussed with my landlord a possible rent deferment. I was quite surprised when the landlord came back and said several tenants are already in default and they are discussing what to do.

Agreed. Also think many (most?) co's are going to try to raise cash from shareholders. Has begun already. So no income for a while - fine - but only if the debt can still be serviced. Otherwise, when all this is over, if it's not 3 months but more like 12, then the current asset owners won't be the future asset owners. Of course, if Covid-19 dies out in the next 3 weeks or so.......

Lord Gnome anything retail, leisure and F&B is screwed during the shutdown with zero income so even if it bounces back quickly, which it wont, they wont have the cashflow to pay next quarters rent let alone paying back this quarters missed rent. This income is forgone and I dont believe industrial / offices offer much more resilience as this lockdown will seep into all business in some way. Tenants are in the ascendancy here and landlords will have no choice but to accept rent cuts but those over leveraged are clearly exposed. However, with so much liquidity in the market and the hunt for yield will see loans renegotiated as busting a propco isnt going to give the lender a valuable asset. So us shareholders are going to bare the brunt and be left with much lower yields and may be zero divis for a period of time.

I agree SteMiS. The rent may be deferred, but that is just to ease cash flow for the tenants. It will not be a rent-free period courtesy of you and me.

INTU has done better than i expected given majority of its tenants have closed stores but in theory any tenant can opt not to pay under the govt concession provided to tenants this week and if your cash flow is stretched why wouldn't you. Be interesting to see how many propcos put out an RNS as technically its market sensitive information but given its been enabled by govt action i suspect many wont feel they have to.

Retail industry sources said on Wednesday evening that Intu was preparing to disclose in a stock exchange announcement that it had received little more than 30% of the rent it was owed by tenants. hxxps://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-lakeside-owner-intu-to-lay-bare-scale-of-retail-rent-crisis-11963708 Even if this was the case for AEWU (extremely unlikely I'd have thought bearing in mind the profile of it's tenants) I don't think it would be a problem for AEWU. In H1 it's total expenses (inc. interest) were £2,255,000. A third of rent would be £2,926,000. I suspect it'll defer it's dividend (or maybe pay a reduced level as required by a REIT) but I don't see it running out of cash. A bit more concerning is that, at the 30.9.19, about 20% of it's rent related to properties coming to the end of their leases, although I suspect some of that will have already been renewed. Of course not paying your rent is one thing, but I don't think anyone is suggesting that when this is all over, you won't eventually have to bring it up to date. So maybe the dividends will be deferred not entirely lost...

"17.51 percent came from the manufacturing industry, and 71.04 percent from the services sector." (2018 figs) But fair point, Germany not that much bigger. I'd suggest their car industry is more important to their prosperity than any individual UK manufacturing concern tho.

SpectoAcc "At least we've only a small manufacturing base" Common misperception. The UK is ranked 10th in the world for exports of goods (as opposed to services), That's smaller than Germany but it is not minimal.

@Chucko1 - "Unless the entire economy collapses" - not sure what other outcome there is if countries everywhere go into total lockdown for months on end. 3 months seems to be everyone's expectation, but 12 not impossible. 1. At least we've only a small manufacturing base, compared to say Germany 2. Pity we can't manufacture the things we need to keep going - like ventilators. Or food.

Which regional REIT is the worst performer - ANS: RGL, most likely due to its 40% LTV free stock charts from uk.advfn.com

At 20% LTV, covenants will never be in play. That is last man standing territory before which more radical government measures will be in play. Unless the entire economy collapses, which we are close to pricing in in some companies and REITs. So be it.

I think you're on the wrong thread, current net LTV circa 20% on AEWU.

This must be close to breaking it's lending covenants now. I'm surprised the directors haven't issued an rns, unless they are indisposed with the Wuhan virus like a lot in the City

Seen my first Unit Trust suspend redemptions so yes - some truth there. But all depends how bad it gets. Paper at the weekend said one of the big problems is that in a large building purchase, up to 50 different professionals can be involved (far fewer at AEWU's sizes I'm sure). But if we go to lockdown, which we will soon, how do you send a surveyor out for eg? How do you view the building, speak to tenants, hold meetings with the lawyers? Not saying nothing can get done - but saying there's sand in the gears atm. PS Not checked your cash assertion - at least £7m, how much more?

It feels overdone to me. Particularly as the recent capital raise will allow us to pick up distressed assets at a song when the time is right.

@Lowtrawler - with a quarter in retail/leisure, you could possibly write off 25% of both rent and NAV in a blink. Say 40% off the remainder (falls were massively larger in the financial crisis). Add in the uncertainty of the duration of all this - 3 months, 6 months, a year, 18 months? That leads to a deep discount being warranted on top of the calc above. Or - things may all turn out fine! But I strongly suspect the world will never be quite the same again. Globalisation, trade flows, free movement across borders, just-in-time supply chains, food production, NHS funding..
