I've held PCTN for the past 12 months or so and am a satisfied shareholder. However, in the interests of 'spring cleaning' my portfolio I have been doing some comparisons with other UK REITs. Most of them current sit at discounts (eg Schroder REIT 9.1% discount, F&C REIT 4.0% discount, LandSec 33.3% discount!!). What's the justification for the slight premium on Picton shares? Would I be better reinvesting in one of the Trusts sat at a discount to try and take advantage of the value on offer?

I believe UK REITs must distribute at least 90% of their income

Wirral - sorry, unable to find why I stated that 4p divi! Doesn't appear to be referenced from an IC or Edison article. Could still be of course.

My initial impression was that they were guiding a probable increase subject to prevailing market conditions but the statement is poorly worded and unclear. We'll find out in due course. Would be somewhat surprised to see a reduction when the company seems in such rude health. Aimho

So is it right to presume that post-REIT the dividend is likely to be increased rather than decreased, in light of their statement today? I note Skyship in post 392 refers to a potential 4.0p dividend post-REIT (which would be very nice!), but can't find any reference to this elsewhere?

Indeed, pete. Note that, as they have previously flagged, they intend to convert to a UK REIT on 1/10/18. Also state that they will review the dividend level once they have converted taking into account prevailng market conditions... Annual Financial Results - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/picton-prop-inc-ltd--pctn-/prn/annual-financial-results/20180605070000P5E70/ REIT conversion At the time of our last Half Year Report, I advised that we were awaiting an announcement of new legislation in the UK regarding the taxation of non-resident landlord companies such as Picton. Six months later and there are now two new pieces of legislation being introduced that will impact Picton. The first is that non-resident landlord companies will be brought into the scope of UK corporation tax, from 1 April 2020. The result of this is that we would expect our liability to UK tax to increase significantly from that date. Additionally, from 1 April 2019, capital gains made by a non-resident on the disposal of commercial property will be subject to UK tax. Therefore, any disposals the Company makes from its portfolio after that date will be taxed, consequently reducing shareholder returns. I have stated previously that we were preparing plans to convert to a UK REIT in the event of tax changes adversely affecting Picton, and these have now been finalised. We will shortly be issuing a circular to shareholders with our detailed proposals, including a number of resolutions to be voted on at a General Meeting in July. In summary, we wish to enter the REIT regime on 1 October this year, after becoming tax resident in the UK, which is a condition of entry. There will be some changes proposed to the articles of the Company to facilitate the REIT conversion. At the same time we are proposing to transfer our technical listing status from an investment company to a commercial company, which we believe is more appropriate for Picton and is consistent with the vast majority of internally managed UK REITs. As a result there will be changes to the way the Company is managed once we are based in the UK, including having a business strategy rather than an investment objective. We will no longer have an investment management subsidiary but will be managed through a traditional board structure with an executive function. However, our investment approach and portfolio strategy will remain very similar. We have set out, separately within this report, a ‘Question and Answer’ section on the proposed changes, and within the Governance section there is also more detail regarding management changes and the role of the Board. We believe that these changes represent an important step in the evolution of the Company and recommend their approval by shareholders. Dividends I am pleased to report that in each of the last three financial years we have increased our dividend, most recently by 3% in February 2018. During this year we paid dividends to shareholders of £18.5 million, an increase of 3% compared to last year, with dividend cover of 122%. We have continued to maintain a covered dividend throughout the year, in line with our strategy and enabling reinvestment back into the portfolio. Once we are in the UK REIT regime, we will review our dividend level in light of prevailing market conditions.

Nick Thompson, Chairman of Picton, commented: “Picton has had another good quarter and end to its financial year. We remain well placed, delivering further growth in net assets, strong dividend cover and having further reduced our gearing.” Michael Morris, Chief Executive of Picton Capital, said: “Our focus on leasing and tenant retention has been the main driver behind the increase in portfolio valuation during the period and our improvement in occupancy reflects this. We have also been helped by the weighting of our portfolio towards the industrial and office sectors, given the recent well publicised difficulties in the retail sector.”

Header updated to include stats announced in Jan'18. PCTN shared in the Market and sector weakness last week. The sector weakness may be due to the continuing weakness in retail; and the very public reduction of store rentals at New Look. The shares are now trading at a 5% discount to NAV; an historic yield of 4.2% on a 3.5p total dividend and a prospective yield of possibly 4.8% on a post-REIT 4.0p total dividend in 2019.

It is expected that following publication of the Company’s audited full year results in June, it will seek shareholder consent at a General Meeting with a view to effect the changes by 1 October 2018.

Anyone have views on the significance of the post whichI've uplifted from a Citywire email this morning purporting to emanated from HL. It appears to be 6 days old so not impacted the share price much yet. I assume because of the source it's true. quoteI have been told by HL that as from Jan 18 it will not be possible to buy any further shares in Picton either by them or any other UK stockbroker because of their failure to issue a KID which a requirement by the new rules (‘PRIIPs).. This sounds quite odd but HL have been quite clear on the matter (see below); "The new regulation requires that issuers of certain types of investments (known as ‘Packaged Retail Investment and Insurance Products’ or ‘PRIIPs’) must issue a Key Information Document (or KID) if they are available to private investors. Without a KID, private investors will not be able to make any further purchases, although they can continue to hold the PRIIPs they already own. They can also sell at any stage. The issuer of Picton Property Income Limited Ord NPV have not confirmed that they intend to publish a KID. This means that from 1 January 2018 you may not be able to buy any more of this stock. As well as the dealing instructions you give us, the new regulation applies to automated trades we place on your behalf (such as dividend reinvestments, limit orders and regular savings instructions). Therefore, from the start of next year we may also need to turn off any automated trades we would otherwise have placed in this stock. Please be assured that we will continue liaising with investment providers on this matter and if yours does publish a KID we shall let you know. However, if they fail to publish a KID then from 1 January 2018 you will not be able to buy any more of this stock." I wonder where this leaves current Picton shareholders who want to have more shares either through reinvestment of dividends or simply as a new investment- why is there a reluctance from Picton to issue the KID?
