@specto not yet but its share price has dropped more than some of its peers but much better value elsewhere still. PCTN and CREI would make a good combo but as @Sky says both too independent but maybe AEWU or AIRE would be a good fit.

A while since I've looked at PCTN, but is it really better than say the near-certain returns at API, the yield at say EBOX, or the better sub-sector at say SHED?

Trading Update and Net Asset Value as at 31 December 2023 -

Lena Wilson CBE, Chair of Picton, commented:
"The real estate market showed continued resilience from an occupational perspective, with all three core sectors showing positive rental growth for the year. With capital values having seen on average a 25% write down since their 2022 peak, the outlook, assuming interest rates have peaked, will become supportive and as such we expect a stabilisation of values in 2024."

Michael Morris, Chief Executive of Picton, commented:
"This quarter we have agreed some significant rental increases, which have mitigated the impact of outward yield movements, against a backdrop of rising interest rates in 2023. We have maintained a well covered dividend over the period and made good progress on specific asset management initiatives. These will enable us to improve earnings as we reposition our portfolio, to ensure it continues to meet evolving occupier needs. As we start 2024, we are already encouraged by portfolio activity."

• Total return for the quarter of -1.6% (30 September 2023: 0.0%).
• LTV of 27.7% (30 September 2023: 27.7%).

• Renewed / regeared two leases in the industrial sector, with a combined annual rent of £0.1 million, an increase of 101% against the previous passing rent and in line with the September 2023 ERV.
• Completed five lettings in the industrial and office sectors, securing a combined annual rent of £0.5 million, in line with the September 2023 ERV.
• Secured valuable residential permitted development rights at Angel Gate EC1, in order to maximise future disposal proceeds.

The PCTN approach to UKCM, a company twice their size, was rather bizarre.

They have no way to grow themselves through M&A as they trade on a 32% NAV discount.

Must be a lot going on we don't know about - Phoenix control UKCM, and are seemingly happy with poor management & mediocre performance.

Assume it would have been a NAV-for-NAV merger, rather than based on relative discounts, so not sure what's not to like. Other than PHNX no longer having the control they have currently.

PCTN reserving options, but it's DOA without PHNX.

It appears Phoenix weren't keen on the terms of the proposed merger...

Statement re UKCM -

On 8 November 2023, Picton and UK Commercial Property REIT Limited ("UKCM") announced that they were in discussions regarding a possible all-share merger of the two companies on an EPRA NTA for EPRA NTA basis (the "Possible Merger").

The Board of Picton notes today's announcement by UKCM and confirms that Picton has been informed by UKCM that its largest shareholder, Phoenix Life Limited, which controls approximately 43% of UKCM's share capital, does not support the Possible Merger on the terms proposed.

Picton is considering the feedback that it has received from shareholders in Picton and UKCM, following the announcements on 8 November. A further announcement will be made in due course.

In accordance with Rule 2.6(a) of The City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code"), Picton is required, by no later than 5.00 p.m. (London time) on 6 December 2023 either to announce a firm intention to make an offer for UKCM in accordance with Rule 2.7 of the Code or to announce that it does not intend to make an offer, in which case the announcement will be treated as a statement to which Rule 2.8 of the Code applies. This deadline can only be extended with the consent of the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Takeover Panel") in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code.

--------------------------

The UKCM announcement is a bit more pointed...

Statement re possible all-share merger -

"...Accordingly, UKCM has informed Picton that it is terminating discussions with Picton regarding the Possible Merger."

Half Year Results -

NAV per share of 99p quoted in the results. AFAICS this is rounded up from 98.5p.

Net assets at 30/9/23: £537,054,000
Shares in issue at 30/9/23 (excluding shares held by the Employee Benefit Trust): 545,224,598 shares

£537,054,000 / 545,224,598 shares = 98.5p per share

Presumably PHNX will decide whether a PCTN/UKCM merger should go ahead.

They own c45% of UKCM; so their holding would reduce to c33% of the combined group.

Minimal share price reaction to the news of a possible all share merger with UKCM...

Statement regarding UKCM -

The Board of Picton notes the announcement made by UK Commercial Property REIT Limited ("UKCM") and confirms that it is in discussions with the Board of UKCM regarding a possible all-share merger of the two companies on an EPRA NTA for EPRA NTA basis at a common valuation date (the "Possible Merger").

Under the terms of Picton's proposal to UKCM, the combined company would be internally managed.

There can be no certainty that an offer will be made. A further announcement will be made in due course.
