LondonMetric announces the disposal of three distribution warehouses for £24.3 million to various buyers, reflecting a blended NIY of 5.4%. The sale price achieved is 4% above book value. Is this a good deal or are they selling off the family Wakefield silver?

Interims showed the NAV up to 172p. Still on a premium, so not surprising to see the share price under pressure. With only a 4.65% yield the share price likely to continue lower...

SALE OF MARTLESHAM HEATH RETAIL PARK FOR £22M LondonMetric Property Plc ("LondonMetric") announces that it has sold its retail park in Martlesham Heath, Ipswich, for £22.0 million, reflecting a NIY of 5.2%. The 48,000 sq ft retail park was acquired in 2013 for £10.4 million. LondonMetric has executed a number of asset management initiatives during its ownership, which have helped attract new retailers such as Hobbycraft, Mountain Warehouse, Card Factory, Shoe Zone and Poundland, whilst existing tenant M&S, recently extended its foodhall to 20,000 sq ft on a new 15 year lease. The park is fully let off average rents of £25.70 psf with a weighted average lease term of 12 years to expiry and 10 years to first break. The property has generated a profit on cost of 40% and an ungeared return of 13% pa. The sale is to a long-term investor and reflects a premium to March 2018 book value. Andrew Jones, Chief Executive of LondonMetric, commented: "Whilst demand for physical retail assets continues to polarise rapidly, investor appetite for long and strong income remains healthy. The sale is in line with our strategy of divesting our last remaining operational retail assets upon completion of their business plans. We retain three retail parks within our direct portfolio reflecting 5% of our assets. "Our investments will continue to target high quality opportunities within the logistics and convenience sectors where income certainty is greater and income growth prospects are superior."

Having drifted back to 175p at mid-October, LMP has since shown surprising strength recovering back up to 189p. This reflects their good move out of Retail; but at 189p now looking overpriced again... free stock charts from uk.advfn.com

Interesting to compare LMP with BBOX... BBOX @ 148.3p LMP @ 192p BBOX yield on forecast dividend of 6.70p = 4.5% LMP yield on current dividend of 7.90p = 4.1% (LMP yield on guesstimated dividend of 8.15p in FY19 = 4.2%) BBOX trades at 4.3% premium to 142.24p EPRA NAV (as at 31/12/17) LMP trades at 16.2% premium to 165.2p EPRA NAV (as at 31/3/18)

Expect recent rise to unravel back to 180p...

Dividend The Company has continued to declare quarterly dividends and has offered shareholders a scrip alternative to cash payments. In the year to 31 March 2018 the Company paid the third and fourth quarterly dividends for 2017 and the first two quarterly dividends for 2018 at a total cost of £51.4 million or 7.6p per share as reflected in note 7 to the financial statements. The Company issued 4.8 million ordinary shares in the year under the terms of the Scrip Dividend Scheme, which reduced the cash dividend payment by £8.0 million to £43.4 million. The first two quarterly payments for the current year of 1.85p per share were paid as Property Income Distributions (PIDs) in the year. The third quarterly payment of 1.85p was paid as a PID in April 2018 and the Company has proposed a fourth quarterly payment of 2.35p payable on 11 July 2018, of which 1.7p per share will be a PID, to shareholders on the register on the record date of 8 June 2018. The total dividend payable for 2018 has increased 5.3% to 7.9p, comprising a PID of 7.25p and an ordinary dividend of 0.65p.

"Today's world is complex and increasingly dynamic. The impact of digital evolution and ongoing shifts in consumer shopping habits is being felt more than ever in the retail sector. Whilst the virtual tills are ringing, the physical ones are not. Many will tell you that we are entering the final act. We are not and there will be value destruction in parts of retail. "Our early anticipation of these shifts and the global search for income led to our pivot towards distribution and long income assets which more accurately cater for modern shoppers' needs. Five years on from the merger that created LondonMetric, the Company and its shareholders continue to see the benefits of this focused strategy. "Economic compounding is the essence of long term value creation. Our adoption of this principle, together with our occupier intelligence and property relationships has been instrumental in our success. Whilst we can never be totally immune, we believe that this approach gives us a competitive advantage to navigate these changing times, allows us to increase our earnings and, in turn, grow our dividends."

speedsgh - There has been a raft of hi-yielding REITs listing over the past 3/4 years; and not all of them sport top quality management. So one does need to be selective. I assume your interest in the Aberdeen one is mainly for a bit of Euro allocation. I never hold propcos / REITs trading at a premium to NAV. My current sector holdings are as follows: # EPIC - at NAV & 5%YLD # LSR (for the liquidation) - c25% discount # RDI - c15%Disc. & 7.2%YLD # RGL - c6%Disc. & 7.2%YLD # RLE - c14%Disc. & 5%YLD # HCFT - c19%Disc. & 5%YLD

SKYSHIP - Yes, I always take a quiet BB as a +ve sign. Unfortunately no LMP profits to bank as I have never held. Currently have exposure through BBOX. I like the sector but, as you say, 15% premium is rather rich. LMP somewhat out of kilter with BBOX. LMP - current 178.5p offer = 14.6% premium to 155.7p NAV (as at 30/9/17) BBOX - current 145.4p offer = 9.1% premium to 133.3p NAV (as at 30/6/17) Assume you have seen upcoming IPO of Aberdeen Standard European Logistics Income plc? Same sector but with geographical diversification. Am looking at taking some in the IPO.

speedsgh - a quiet B/B tends to be a good sign :) SMP - share price at 180p - NAV of 155.7p - Yield of 4.1% There is no doubt that SMP is an impressive operation, as evidenced by May's placing of 63m shares at 152p - a 2p premium to the then NAV. However, at this stage of the property cycle a 15% NAV PREMIUM is rather absurd. Having seen NRR fall back over recent days, I view it as highly likely SMP too will unravel that premium over the next few weeks, certainly unravel the surprising strength of the past 4weeks. With the often quite high NAV discounts across the sector, why should any new money support SMP @ 180p? IMO now is a very good time to bank profits and perhaps switch horses within the sector.

"Today, almost 70% of our portfolio is allocated to the distribution sector with the balance mainly invested in long income and convenience retail; both areas that are benefiting from the changes taking place in consumer shopping habits. Our decision a number of years ago to pivot into these winning sectors was driven by the impact of technology on shopper behaviour. "We were early movers into both these sectors and this is reflected in our strong financial numbers. We have performed across every key financial measure, increasing our income, earnings, profits, dividend and NAV whilst maintaining our strong portfolio metrics. "The desperate search for yield globally is continuing to drive investor demand for income backed real estate. Our approach of patiently collecting and compounding our income remains front and centre of our strategy, and this is exactly what a REIT was designed to do."

This is having a profound impact on real estate. The tectonic plates in retail are shifting and the industry is experiencing radical disruption driven by these trends. "Retailers are closing marginal stores and investing in 'flagship' destinations and new supply chains to service ever-increasing online sales and consumer expectations. Retailers are prioritising distribution and fulfilment ahead of their stores, which is why we have repositioned LondonMetric's portfolio from retail into logistics. Logistics will soon represent more than 70% of our investments as our urban logistics portfolio grows further and our short cycle developments complete. "In a low interest rate environment, investors are increasingly searching for reliable and repetitive income streams. Compounding our income returns is central to our strategy as we embrace the very purpose of a REIT. Our logistics focus has enhanced our portfolio's income characteristics and we believe that it is these structural calls that will help define the real estate winners."

PLACING TO FUND ACQUISITIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS - HTTP://www.investegate.co.uk/londonmetric--lmp-/rns/placing-to-fund-acquisitions-and-developments/201703230700262644A/ · Proposed Placing to raise approximately £97 million of gross proceeds (based on the closing share price on 22 March 2017). The Placing will enable the Company to accelerate its portfolio alignment towards distribution by: o increasing its exposure to the attractive returns available from last mile distribution; and o building out three new developments following material progress on pre-lettings, as announced separately today. · The Net Proceeds will be used to fund committed and potential investments and new developments that amount to c.£100 million: o £42 million to fund distribution developments at Dagenham, Stoke and Crawley, totalling 560,000 sq ft, at an anticipated yield on cost of 6.2% o £28 million to fund recently completed distribution investments acquired at a blended net initial yield of 5.9% and a reversionary yield of 6.4% o £30 million to fund a pipeline of last mile and regional distribution investments. · The Company expects to deploy c.75% of the Net Proceeds within six months. The Placing is expected to be earnings per share accretive following completion of the three developments, which is expected to occur over a 9 to 12 month period. · The Company's progressive and covered quarterly dividend policy remains unchanged, and the Placing is complementary to its unsecured credit facility where the marginal cost on further debt drawn is 1.5%. Andrew Jones, Chief Executive Officer of LondonMetric, commented: "Our increased commitment to last mile acquisitions and short cycle distribution developments, together with a healthy pipeline of further opportunities, will support our plans to grow our distribution exposure to at least 70% within a year. Earlier this week, we secured two further last mile acquisitions and today we have announced major pre-lettings to Eddie Stobart and Michelin, alongside the letting to Amazon. These transactions highlight the compelling market opportunities that exist and we expect to deploy raised funds at pace, leading to accretive earnings whilst maintaining a progressive and fully covered dividend. "Structural trends in consumer behaviour and shopping patterns are continuing to drive demand for distribution, from last mile facilities to mega sheds, but supply remains constrained. For those with market access and knowledge, investments in the sector are able to create long-term, reliable income. At LondonMetric, we have 99.6% occupancy and our assets are backed by some of the biggest retailers and logistics groups."

We've seen a massive one year Top formation in the range 158p-170p. Like BLND recently, the support has been pierced. LMP are headed down. Bellwether stock BLND has dropped c16% since dropping through its support. LMP is still on a 5% premium to the Sept'15 EPRA NAV. so IMO perhaps wait to buy nearer 140p.
