Deep share price discount to NAV
The deep share price discount partly reflects the fact that Palace will have to commit significant capital expenditure to upgrade its assets to meet the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES). That’s because 96 per cent of the portfolio has an EPC band rating A to D, but it is required to have a minimum C rating by April 2027 and B rating by April 2030.

That said, the portfolio has strong reversionary value as highlighted by 14 new lettings, 15 lease renewals and 16 rent reviews that generated £1.1mn of additional contracted rent in the 2022/23 financial year, or 11 per cent ahead of March 2022 ERV. Moreover, recent disposals have been made above carrying valuations, suggesting the ongoing asset disposal programme could surprise to the upside.

So, having last rated the shares a hold, at 205p, for their income and potential for capital upside when the market stabilises (‘Priced for a severe property downturn that’s unlikely to happen’, 24 November 2022), I now feel that the markedly improved debt position and more favourable market conditions for the asset disposal programme support a buy recommendation ahead of annual results on Thursday, 15 June 2023. Buy.

Poacher - spot on. In fact, if they can buy back say 10m shares @ 240p, this will leave Eq of, say, 133-24= 109m or 320p/share - and so on……R30;…a further 10m at 260p and the NAV increase to 345p…………and so on……R30;….another 10m at 280p and NAV goes to 390p……… is not going to happen overnight, but meanwhile there is a good and secure dividend income on the shares. Those who stay in for the last distribution/buy back may well end up north of 400p.

Excellent news this morning. Sales price strong and gearing now very low with further reduction in the pipeline. This means the company can now accelerate its buy back program. NAV by march 2023 should be just north of 300p so buy backs at the prevailing share price is of course a no-brainer that will increase the NAV for remaining shares. The risk/reward is really sound, with a well covered dividend and then the upside in the capital value on top of that. Clearly the new BOD is delivering here.

'kit price' = building price.

More buy-backs in Palace - very good news for patient shareholders staying in. These buy-backs are a ”license to print money” as they buy £1 for say 65-70 pence. This will increase the pro forma NAV per share for the remaining shares - we may well end up at 400p, to be paid out to all remaining shareholders once the disposal program has been completed, if they can get hold of more substantial volumes at the prevailing market price. Palace is in a very good position to play this game, with low gearing and strong cash flow. and - a BOD who is clearly focussed on the best interest of all shareholders.

The Blackstone deal for Industrials REIT is good to see. Might we see PCA revive its plans to sell its assets in that space?

assuming a NAV of 320p, PC yesterday made £75k for its remaining shareholders when buying back 75k shares. a licence to print money ! yesterday┬┤s announcement of the take over of a REIT focussed on industrial properties by a US investor was indeed encouraging - indicating the transaction market is again alive. this will allow PC to accelerate the implementation of its declared strategy: an orderly sale of the assets and a distribution of the net proceeds to shareholders - by share buy backs at a discount to NAV and thus further increase the NAV/share, and eventually probably also a cash distribution pro rata. meanwhile, there is a sound dividend paid out from a lowly geared PC. smashing risk/reward!it seems the new chairman mr Owen is a very safe pair of hands responsible for this implementation.

The 400p will come from the shares bought back at the prevailing market price, adding substantially to the nav of the remaining shares. If you assume the Update nav is 320p and you buy shares back at 220p, there is a 100p/share ”profit” per share, that adds to the nav of the remaining shares. As simple as that.

The big London centric propcos are holding their own with lettings and managing void rates although most look like they've put on hold anymore new capex unless they have a substantial pre let.

Anyhow PCA have diminishing NRI due to asset sales and whilst they've knocked debt down too much of it is floating at SONIA+2% so i doubt they can afford a divi rise but at least the recurring 1.4m paid to Sinclair and co wont repeat this year. Should get a trading update in next month and we can see how HQ sales are going as everyone is free cash now which can be applied to one of the expensive loans freely.

Be 3mths before we see finals based on last year so reckon NAV 250-270 most likely so current share price is pretty reasonable based on other reits discounts currently.

The strategy is not the same Nickrl - PC will be liquidated in an orderly manner and proceeds paid out to shareholders - based on latest NAV there will be 50%+ more than the current share price distributed plus the current dividend - so u have better hurry up if you like a ride on this train !!
