Latest 'paid for' Edison research note... Resilient performance with positive returns - HTTPS://www.edisongroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Picton-Property-Income-Resilient-performance-with-positive-returns-.pdf In the challenging environment created by COVID-19, H121 results were resilient and we have increased our full-year FY21 forecast. Sector positioning, asset management and robust rent collection all contributed to performance. Portfolio returns were well ahead of the MSCI UK Quarterly Property Index and NAV total return was positive, underpinning the first steps in restoring the level of DPS towards pre-COVID-19 levels.

Pretty impressive results in view of the circumstances. They managed to turn a profit, EPRA NAV unchanged at 93p since Mar 20 and dividend cover of 129% excluding additional income (admittedly after a dividend reduction)... Half Year Results - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/picton-prop-inc-ltd--pctn-/prn/half-year-results/20201112070000PBD62/ Financial Highlights ~ EPRA earnings of £10.1 million ~ Profit of £3.7 million ~ Net assets of £506 million, or 93p per share ~ Total return of 0.7% ~ Dividend cover of 148% ~ Loan to value ratio of 22% ~ £50 million available through new undrawn revolving credit facility Operational Highlights ~ Total property return of 1.5%, outperforming the MSCI UK Quarterly Property Index of -1.6% ~ Occupancy increased to 90% ~ Nine lettings completed, securing £1.2 million per annum, 2.8% ahead of March 2020 ERV ~ 16 lease renewals / regears completed, retaining £2.3 million per annum, 14.3% above March 2020 ERV ~ Five rent reviews completed, securing an uplift of £0.3 million per annum, 16.3% above March 2020 ERV ~ Additional income of £1.3 million received from asset management initiatives ~ Retail and Leisure exposure reduced to 12% from 18% of the total property portfolio Rent Collection ~ Received 90% of the March quarter’s rent, expected to rise to 96% under agreed deferred payment plans ~ Received 90% of the June quarter’s rent, expected to rise to 93% under agreed deferred payment plans ~ To date 93% of the September quarter’s rent has been collected or is expected to be received under monthly payment plans Subsequent Events ~ Dividend increased by 12% to 2.8p per share effective November 2020 ~ Completed a further £0.4 million per annum of lettings, 2.4% above September 2020 ERV, including the first letting at Stanford Building, WC2 ~ Good leasing pipeline with approximately £0.7 million per annum of transactions agreed, subject to contract, across industrial, office and retail sectors Picton Chairman, Nicholas Thompson, commented: “Picton has delivered a profit in what has undoubtedly been a challenging period. Cognisant of this performance and the overall strength of the balance sheet, we felt it was appropriate to take the first step in restoring the dividend to pre-Covid levels by announcing a 12% increase, effective November 2020.” Michael Morris, Chief Executive of Picton, commented: “We have delivered robust progress at a portfolio level and rent collection in excess of 90%. As well as improving occupancy, generating additional income to offset Covid-19 impacts and completing some key asset management projects, we have also increased our weightings to the better performing industrial and office sectors.” -------------------------------- Our EPRA earnings for the period are similar to last year. Despite lower than usual rent collection we have been able to offset this with additional one-off income from active management initiatives, whilst reducing both property and administrative costs relative to this period last year. -------------------------------- Dividend cover for the six months was 148%, or 129% excluding additional income. Recognising our rent collection performance and high dividend cover we have decided to increase the dividend by 12% to 0.7 pence per quarter, effective from the November payment which is a first step in restoring the dividend to its previous level.

Thanks @nickrl, didn't realise the Covent Gdn one vacant. There's a few have nudged divi back up (or reinstated) but I take issue with PCTN trumpeting it as a "12% increase" :)

These were carrying a fair void cost at year end but they've off loaded a Peterborough asset which had one void and an imminent loss of TK Maxx in Mar 21 so that will help but the reclassified W.End office in Covenant Gdn still vacant. They also have c22% of the NRI subject to break/expiry Apr20 to Apr22 ordinarily a positive but who knows in this environment so void costs could worsen. Negative comments out the way these are the first to increase a previously reduced dividend so BoDs must be confident they can maintain rental collection around 85-90% to cover it. As Specto says yield a paltry 4.6% at close but can't see much more upside on divi from here until things improve.

As always, spoilt for choice, but PCTN reminds me a lot of UCKM. Large (half a billion quid of property), low LTV (half what some have), but poxy yield. A 12% increase of squat is still squat :) 4.5% yield now I reckon? Claim very low retail exposure but helped by reclassifying one asset from High St Retail to West End Office. Either canny property management, or canny classification. 49% industrial, ought to be on a better yield IMO. I like PCTN - and UKCM - both seem conservative and "cheap" in any normal scenario. But neither stack up that well against everything else on offer atm.

What troubles me about AEWU is they've disposed of there biggest asset - yes at good price but they've lost the income stream so unless they tap into the cash they received can't see them raising the divi. I let that issue blight me at the time for dipping in so gone up too imo now. However, what im seeing in many of these is an up trend for a few weeks following good news then a slow drift back so will keep an eye on it.

Despite it's 15% rise since I posted here just over a week ago, AEWU still looks great value with 8.6% covered yield (9.6% actual), super low LTV of 13.5% and 2.05% cost of debt including hedging.

nickrl Bizarrely, no shortage of good income plays. RECI for sure. At 127p, with the covered and retained 12p dividend the yield = 9.45% INLZ - a ZDP. At 153.5p the GRY (YTM) = 7.5% AIRE - as you know, another propco, but trading at a well covered, reduced dividend yield of 6.3% and a 41% NAV discount. IMO the Divi likely to be higher than the 3.3p conservatively stated.

Can't fault there transparency on rental collection. They set the standard template others should adopt. As Sky says a tad too pricey still but given there relatively stable share price compared to others maybe that the price I have to accept to get some income without risking capital erosion.

Or compair to AEWU 11% yield, 13.5% net LTV, 2% cost of debt and 20% discount to NAV. This quarters div is not fully covered but still 9.5% annualised on a 100% covered basis.

Agreed, a reasonable set of results, but that's about all. The valuation does rather benefit from PCTN's past reputation of a safe pair of hands. The 25% notional NAV discount & low 3.8% yield certainly doesn't work for me; perhaps more of an institutional HOLD. Compare the stats to EPIC's well covered 7.8% yield and 43% discount.

Daniel going forward they've lowered the divi to annualised 2.5p v 3.5p which is prudent but high entry point imo for that yield but depends on your view on whether they will recover rental value back to previous levels anytime soon

Thanks, I hadn't spotted it was results day. I have been burying my head in the sand a bit in respect of my property exposure, but PCTN has always been a quality operator and that quality has shone through in the recent crisis. While they haven't been immune from the struggles of the wider commercial property sector, the fact that their NAV per share has held steady over the year we've just had shows real skill from management. In particular, selling assets above book value and using the proceeds to pay down debt seems to have been a sensible move in the current environment. The company's leverage ratio is modest and the fact they've maintained the dividend shows there isn't an imminent cash crunch. I continue to be a happy holder here.

Reasonable set of results and good detail on rent collection actions to recover the defect (mainly retail/leisure) but overall is 82% collected with another 9% on revised terms (when they get cash isn't clear though!). LTV is in good shape at 22% and they had already flagged a divi reduction from 3.5 to 2.5p for this year which if they maintain c80% in June qtr is covered but thats 3.6% at current share price There vacant properties are costing them £3m a year although i suspect its mainly the Covenant Garden asset but does indicate the scale of the threat to London centric propco's if vacancies end up on there books. Should have had a nibble when it was sub 60p a few weeks back as it will attract interest interest I suspect with its reasonable broad portfolio.

Picton completes trio of lettings - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/picton-prop-inc-ltd--pctn-/prn/picton-completes-trio-of-lettings/20200320070000PD491/ Picton today issues an update on the portfolio following the completion of a series of office leases, which add a total of £0.9 million of annual income to the headline rent roll. The transactions follow the completion of recent refurbishment works. Metro Building, Salford Quays - Let the 4th floor to HM Government on a 20-year lease subject to break in 2030 at £0.4 million per annum, which was in line with the December 2019 ERV. 180 West George Street, Glasgow - Let the 3rd floor on a 10-year lease, subject to break in 2025, at £0.2 million per annum, which was in line with the December 2019 ERV. Tower Wharf, Bristol - upsized an existing occupier and extended a lease which was due to expire in May 2020. This increased their floor space by 73% and secured a new 15-year lease, subject to break in 2030, at a rent of £0.5 million per annum, which was in line with the December 2019 ERV and £0.3 million ahead of the previous passing rent. The Company will provide a trading update in April 2020. Michael Morris, Chief Executive of Picton, commented: “To have recently concluded three significant long-term leases following our refurbishment of these spaces is encouraging. Our immediate priority is ensuring the health and safety of our occupiers, employees and other partners, as we seek to minimise the impact of the COVID-19 virus. We are continuing to work with our occupiers to help them navigate these uncertain times. We have a strong balance sheet with primarily long-dated debt, a low LTV of 22% and access to more than £41 million of funding in two undrawn debt facilities.”
