Two thoughts on this: 1) The managers are the main builders of the houses so there's potential for conflict of interests. 2) A lot of new house prices (and therefore land acquisition) are set by the government subsidised help to buy scheme. This means these new houses will have to pay HTB prices for the land, without the subsidy.

Surprised NAV only 99p given the strong rise in house prices. With shares at a premium, makes sense to go for a placing (quick and cheap)

Further to the post above, the answer is in... The buying ahead of the FTSE re-jig (PRSR goes into the Small Cap and All Share Indices) has now resulted in a premium to EPRA NAV. Clearly this one was known well in advance so the early buyers have done well, many promotions and demotions can be decided very close to the review or the actual close the day before. There is still strong demand for shares here. We can see anomalous volumes and some chunky trades in recent days so possibly a few more pennies for holders to come here but it has been an interesting example. A steady slow one to post on following NSCI - absolute rocket ship! Lobbed those now. Elsewhere notable activity... RCH - some big chunks going through (major ding dong going on at 246p) which will be the previously mentioned sellers in size continuing to lob but the volume is significant and a break of that 247p (where it knocked its head twice prior and fell back) mark will be key to watch.

Unbelievably house prices have been rising strongly so we should see good profits from construction and NAV revaluations. I would expect rent arrears to rise as furlough ends and until the economy recovers in 2022. But overall if they get to the point that the yield is fully covered I expect this to go to a premium

Thanks for the updates Davebowler. I guess it does pay to buy boring turtle type shares - it is quite relaxing actually, hardly any drama. With the price now at 94.5p, clearly the discount to the EPRA NAV has narrowed substantially. I have this bad habit of taking some shares off the watchlist once they hit targets (alot having been too cautious targets, which have been blown away in this relentlessly bullish one way market) as the next batch of opportunities are sought out. Keeping this one on to see how the tracker buying plays out. The market has bought up the shares well in advance, so will they be lobbing to the trackers (as we get closer to the FTSE review in June) at around the EPRA NAV or will the demand coming in result in some form of premium? Don't know the answer but will keep a watch. All imo DYOR

Liberum; Mkt Cap £463m | Prem/(disc) -1.8% | Div yield 4.3% Event PRS REIT has reported total completed units of 3,590 at 31 March 2021 (December 2020: 3,163), representing a 13% increase (427 units) in the quarter. The total number of completed units in the period since June 2020 is 1,508 (72% rise). PRS REIT has now achieved 70% of its target of 5,200 completed units. The proportion of completed units has picked up considerably in recent quarters due to the number of sites now under construction and three portfolio acquisitions of completed properties. This includes a fully-let development of 123 homes from Blackrock Real Assets and 31 homes in Birmingham from Sigma Capital (the investment manager). Rent collection and occupancy remain high. Rent collection in in H2 2020 was 100%. Total arrears are currently £0.2m (0.6% of ERV on completed units). 95.6% of the completed units are occupied and a further 2.1% are reserved. The manager also reports that 44 of the homes under construction are pre-let. Liberum view Today's update confirms the progress highlighted in the recent interim report. PRS REIT is on track to reach the expected 5,000 completed units by late 2021/early 2022. NAV performance has picked up as the pace of completions accelerates, resulting in an uplift from development profits. The proportion of completed units increased markedly since June 2020 and will contribute to an improvement in dividend cover. Portfolio performance has been resilient over the last 12 months as rent collection levels have been relatively unaffected. Rental demand remains high with with rent levels holding at pre-Covid levels. The key focus for the company remains on progressing development schemes and building up the level of dividend cover (0.1x dividend cover in the six-month period to December 2020). The shares have re-rated significantly in recent weeks due to deployment progress and an improvement in income visibility.

And catching up with boring PRSR: "The Company's transfer from the Specialist Fund Segment to the Premium Segment of the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange took place on 2 March. The migration will enable us to broaden the share register and facilitates our eligibility for inclusion in FTSE's EPRA and UK Index Series." Just want to see how the buying comes in now from the trackers for the next review in June and whether it results in closing the NAV from the current price of 87.1 to the EPRA NAV of 96.2p. Nothing of note as yet, it is early. Have to see if the wider market holds completely stable till the review in June too, but should be easy to see any whoppers being bought here because PRSR barely bats an eyelid most of the time.

Liberum; Event PRS REIT has reported an EPRA NAV per share of 96.2p at 31 December 2020 (95.1p at 30 June 2020), resulting in a NAV total return of 4.3% in the six-month period and 5.5% overall in 2020. Revaluation gains accounted for 95% of the returns in the period. The total number of completed and contracted units at 31 December 2020 was 5,126 (December 2019: 4,945). The portfolio is spread across 65 sites and has an ERV of £48.8m on completion (6.2% yield on cost). PRS REIT has reported total completed units of 3,163 at 31 December 2020 (June 2020: 2,082), representing a 52% increase (1,081 units) in six months. This represents 62% of the total number of completed and contracted units. The company expects completed units to rise to 5,000 by late 2021/early 2022. Net LTV has risen from 15% to 29% since June 2020 as deployment has progressed. The proportion of completed units has picked up considerably in recent quarters due to the number of sites now under construction and three portfolio acquisitions of completed properties (175 units). This includes a fully-let development of 123 homes from Blackrock Real Assets and 31 homes in Birmingham from Sigma Capital (the investment manager). Rent collection has remained robust with arrears unchanged at £0.2m (less than 1% of ERV). EPRA EPS in the half-year to December was 0.2p. Occupancy of completed units was 96.3% with a further 1.7% of units reserved. Like-for-like rental growth in H2 2020 was 0.5%.The company remains on track to distribute 4.0p in FY 2021 (June period end) and now expects to be able to increase the dividend in FY 2022. Liberum view NAV performance has picked up as the pace of completions accelerates, resulting in an uplift from development profits. The average uplift on completed assets to investment value was 9.7%. The proportion of completed units increased markedly in H2 2020 and will contribute to an improvement in dividend cover. Portfolio performance has been resilient throughout 2020 as rent collection levels have been relatively unaffected. Rental demand remains high with with rent levels holding at pre-Covid levels. The key focus for the company remains on progressing development schemes and building up the level of dividend cover (0.1x dividend cover in the six-month period to December 2020). We expect the shares to re-rate in 2021 as the company approaches its target of 5,200 units and income visibility improves.

Wonder how far along they are in changing listing - possibly ready for the review in June? Nonetheless, good ole boring PRSR has almost closed that gap now so the bulk of the capital growth must be in the price now. With a minimum 4p dividend, the yield is hardly a disaster compared to cash or bonds so perhaps more of these lagging REIT's will re-rate higher as confidence in the economic recovery grows. To my untrained eye, it looks like the NAV are stable or actually going up in the sector with not only PRSR but BREI upgrading. There is alot more interest with much heavier buying in RDI recently and separately even HWG upgraded their numbers. Possibly a signal on the improving fundamental picture. Still, slow and boring ones have been quite good really. All imo DYOR

Liberum; Deployment progress leading to improved performance Mkt Cap £421m | Prem/(disc) -11.4% | Div yield 4.7% Event PRS REIT has reported an EPRA NAV per share of 96.1p at 31 December 2020 (95.0p at 31 December 2019), resulting in a NAV total return of 5.4% for 2020.

We expect the shares to re-rate in 2021 as the company approaches its target of 5,200 units. This should be supported by the move to the Premium Segment, enabling inclusion in the FTSE UK and EPRA indices.

Breaking out. Taken a few more. Been hard to buy all morning with nothing available at numerous price points and nothing now at 84p. 139,771 buy print at 84.9p showing how thin the supply has been when the offer at time of the trade was 83p.

Added here. Heavy buying coming in at 79p and 80p. Wouldn't have added if it was the usual mediocre daily amounts so it might be setting up for a breakout with that level of interest based on a bullish statement. Shouldn't be too much drama here compared to the majority going forward so a more steady move in a market which has many participants now wondering if we are really in some form of mania/bubble. FCA are out today warning on crypto and even SCSW have seen enough to suggest valuations are extreme in the US and a fall in excess of 50% could be coming. Who knows when though? We need a healthy correction soon. Previous parabolic blow off tops are great on the way up but absolutely brutal when it all comes crashing apart. Even I have caught the mania with speculative buys in AGL and SWG recently - properly pushing the boat out! That's as blooming well far as it will be going in the near term! :-) All imo DYOR

"The Board can now confirm its intention to apply to the FCA for the Company's issued share capital to be admitted to the Premium Segment in early 2021. The transfer is expected to broaden the Company's share register and facilitate its eligibility for inclusion in FTSE's EPRA and UK Index Series." That's an interesting piece of news regarding the premium listing. This will head into the FTSE Small Cap and naturally that will mean trackers having to buy in. This share clearly isn't going to set the world on fire with share price moves but a bullish technical point of note.

Crude using average prices that cover such a large area. Prices can vary significantly street by street. It also somewhat misses the point about the obvious conflicts of interest that have yet to be acknowledged by the Board let alone addressed. The PRS Reit launched in May 2017 and since then the share price is DOWN 23%, more if you consider the second £250 mill was raised at £1.025, and that's after a strong rebound from £0.58 at the start of the pandemic. This was supposed to be a safe and boring investment trust.... In contrast Grainger's share price is UP 19% over the same period.....

the average price for first time buyers in Manchester is around 160K (April-2020), Rightmove has the average flat at 200k (last year average) PRS has just acquired 123 homes for 19million, which comes in at 154K. Unless these homes are in a severe state of disrepair, it looks like a bargain to me. (retail) Letting agents typically charge 10-20% for the management of properties. Perhaps a better peer for PRS Reit is Grainger (GRI), which has a similar sized property portfolio, further north, but was worth significantly more ! I have no idea how much their management fees are though. Edit: GRI's estimated gross rental yield is 6.5%, but the realised dividend yield is a smidge below 2%. They have more properties, and have been established since 1912.

Another massive conflict. The investment advisor sigma capital sells a site it developed and managed on behalf of BlackRock to the PRS Reit who it acts on behalf on.... presumably Sigma had a financial interest on the site depending on its performance for BlackRock which will have been driven largely by the sale price but don't worry, there was an "independent" valuation by Savills who undertake all of the Reit's and Sigma's valuation services...... total lack of corporate governance! An independent party and an independent valuer should have been appointed to act for the REIT in this transaction given the obvious conflict. Also for clarity Sigma were contractually obliged to acquire shares in the REIT. Under the terms of their development management agreement where they receive a generous 4% fee, half must be re-invested in the REIT. That they paid Investors Champion to put out a research note implying that they were buying shares of their own free will is seriously misleading. The 1.5m shares acquired by Sigma on 25th Nov were done so as a contractual obligation. What is curious given they could have issued new shares at NAV and invested the funds in their "attractive proposition", was that they instead bought them from an institution that was prepared to sell 1.5m shares at 76p. That says more about the outlook than anything. I hope the appointment of a joint broker is not a preclude to attempting to raise more equity taking the REIT back to cash drag and negative dividend cover. On every financial metric the Reit has underperformed to date. It has some way to go before DEPLOYING the £900m gross which was originally targeted in two years... The dividend yield will be sub 4% not 6%+ and that is after many more years taken to deploy the funds than was originally advised with initial sites having the benefit of rental growth. The NAV remains significantly below the initial raise price inspite of beneficial headwinds through rising house prices. Yield compression and a robust rental collection rate that compares favourably to many commercial property sectors. The NAV was meant to be growing at 10%+ per annum at this point per original marketing forecasts. The only beneficiary has been the Investment Advisor and yet the conflicts of interest continue unchallenged

Liberum; £1.1m share acquisitions by investment adviser Mkt Cap £372m | Prem/(disc) -19.2% | Div yield 5.2% Event Sigma Capital Group, the parent company of the investment adviser to PRS REIT, has acquired 1.5m shares in the company at a price of 76p per share. Sigma Capital now owns 5.9m shares (1.2% shareholding) in PRS REIT. Liberum view The £1.1m share acquisition demonstrates confidence in PRSR's portfolio. Capital deployment has progressed this year, with completed units representing 51% of the portfolio at the end of September. This remains the key area of focus for the company in order to build the level of dividend cover (0.03x dividend cover in the year to 30 June 2020). Portfolio performance has been resilient throughout 2020 as rent collection levels have been relatively unaffected. Rental demand remains high with with rent levels holding at pre-Covid levels.

As noted by others, concerns around the non-recoverable direct property costs as a percentage of gross rent are materialising. The stated Gross to Net deduction in the 6 months to 31st Dec 2019 was 18.2% per the Interim Report. For the full year to 30 June 2020 the stated Gross to Net deduction had shot up to 21.1% per the Annual Report. Whilst not stated in the Annual Report, this implies a Gross to Net deduction in the last 6 months of the financial year to June 2020 of 24%+! The absence of any comment on this in the Annual Report is alarming and the following statement contained in the Annual Report is disingenuous: “All the KPIs are in line with management expectations. Increases in rental income, NON-RECOVERABLE PROPERTY COSTS, operating profit, and the number of properties available to rent reflect the increased size of the portfolio and the progression of development sites.” The Gross to Net deduction for the full year to June 2019 was 17.6% so there has been a marked and concerning trajectory since then. In the Interim Report to Dec 2019 the following statement was made: “Currently, costs are at 1.2% over the target 17% of gross rent during the development phase. However, the Gross to Net deduction during the development phase is well below published averages, at 18.2%, reflecting the benefits of our model. All other costs are in line with management’s targets. At stabilisation we are targeting the Gross to Net deduction to be 22.5%, under the sector average of 25%.” At an implied 24% for the first 6 months of 2020, the Gross to Net deduction is now a full 7% above target during the development phase. With completed investment assets of only £231m at 30 June 2020 against a target of £900m the PRS REIT still has some years to go in the development phase. Given the infancy of the portfolio this is a major concern as the figure is only likely to increase as the portfolio achieves stabilisation and then matures, at which point rolling refurbishment programmes will be required. It brings into question one of the much touted key attractions of the PRS REIT – new build portfolios that were marketed as having both low and predictable non-recoverable direct property costs as a result of homes clustered on individual sites that had standardised layouts, designs and fittings. The notion was that terraced housing would be significantly cheaper to manage and maintain than apartment blocks. These assertions no longer appear to hold true. The rising Gross to Net deduction may also have implications on the valuation of the assets and hence Net Asset Value moving forwards given Savills valuations currently assume a long-term 22.5% to 25% which now looks unsupportable. Critically the way the issue has been brushed under the carpet given the lack of any reference or explanation in the Annual Report to follow up on the comments in the Interim Report, is both a poor reflection on the PRS REIT Board and their governance, as well as a further tarnish on the investment adviser Sigma Capital’s reputation and credibility. After allowances for the impact of Covid, the PRS REIT’s financial performance since launch has still been sub-par and the increasing Gross to Net deduction is yet another concern to add to a growing list. It is reminiscent of the issues suffered by Empiric (ESP) a few years ago where the dividend was cut and there was a lack of cost control combined with operational issues culminating in the dismissal of the CEO (hxxps://citywire.co.uk/investment-trust-insider/news/empiric-student-property-sacks-boss-after-dividend-cut/a1077128). For clarity the Gross to Net deduction referred to excludes Sigma Capital’s annual investment advisory fee (£4.34m p.a.), administrative expenses in running the REIT (£1.68m p.a.) and Directors Remuneration (£140K p.a.).

The PRS REIT announced in its interim results published 31 March 2020 £400m of committed debt facilities in place: "Our lending partners are Scottish Widows (£250 million), Lloyds Banking Group plc (£50 million) and Royal Bank of Scotland plc (£100 million), to whom we would like to express our thanks for their support." Strange that in May 2020 the Investment Advisor Sigma Capital has put in place additional debt facilities for the PRS REIT with Barclays: THE PRS REIT (BARCLAYS) MEMBERCO LIMITED, THE PRS REIT (BARCLAYS) BORROWER LIMITED & THE PRS REIT (BARCLAYS) HOLDING COMPANY LIMITED. Perhaps one of the lenders has withdrawn funding post Covid but no official announcement issued to date. No doubt this will be clarified in the next trading update. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/12616572 https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/12599502 https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/12598004
