Ongoing Earnings Growth

 
--   Net Recurring Income for the period of GBP1.9m or 1.1p a share, 
      up 10% on the quarter (31 March 2021: GBP1.7m or 1.0p a share) 
      driven by 
     --   GBP19m of income generating shared ownership acquisitions 
           in March; 
     --   Continued occupancy ramp-ups in retirement and the pre-existing 
           shared ownership portfolio; and 
     --   Like for like rental growth from ReSI's inflation linked 
           long leases 
--   Total portfolio rent collection continues to be secure, with 
      99% of rent collected in the quarter, unchanged throughout 
      the Covid-19 crisis and in line with normal performance, demonstrating 
      the secure nature of ReSI's cashflows 
--   Dividend cover of 90% for the quarter, up from 82% for the 
      second quarter and ahead of the 80% full year target (1) (calculated 
      on recurring profit before valuation movements) 
--   Full dividend cover continues to be on track to be achieved 
      for the fourth quarter, i.e. from 1 July 2021 [1] (on a look-forward 
      basis) 
--   Interim dividend maintained at 1.25 pence per Ordinary Share 
      for the quarter ended 30 June 2021, in line with the target 
      of 5.0 pence per Ordinary Share for the current financial 
      year (1)

       value basis 
      --    the portfolio has an average EPRA NIY of 4.5% 
      --    the valuation movement reflects a small amount of yield compression 
             driven by increased occupancy (and hence de-risking) combined 
             with like-for-like rental growth over the quarter 
 --   ReSI continues to maintain a robust balance sheet with a gross 
       loan to value ratio of 48%. Total debt was GBP169 million

        3% reserved 
 --    Post the quarter end, ReSI completed the first 34 of the 85 
        shared ownership homes with Brick By Brick (which are all 
        reserved with occupiers already moving in) funded by drawing 
        down on ReSI's existing Universities Superannuation Scheme 
        debt facility and existing cash reserves 
 --    The remainder of the Brick by Brick acquisitions are expected 
        to complete by the end of the calendar year 
 --    Transfer of the property management function from Girlings 
        to a subsidiary of the Investment Manager completed on schedule 
        on 1 July and expected to deliver further cost efficiencies 
        and operational improvements

Outlook

   --    Acute need continues for further expansion of UK's affordable housing stock 

-- Continuing to see interesting investment opportunities in the share ownership space which have been introduced to ReSI via the Investment Manager's relationships with various housing associations, including from existing partners

   --    ReSI is strongly placed to meet the two biggest problems in the housing market: 

o Inability to access home ownership, which has been made worse by recent strong house price growth; and

o Growing elderly population requiring suitable accommodation for independent later living

   --    Full dividend cover on track to be achieved in July 20 21 (1) 

Ben Fry, Head of Housing Investment at Gresham House, commented:

"ReSI has had another good quarter, with income up 10%, driving increased dividend cover, and we've again collected 99% of rents, proving the security of our underlying inflation-linked tenancies.

"The secular tailwinds remain strong. A growing need for high quality affordable housing in the UK has been reinforced by recent increases in house prices and the disruption that the Covid-19 pandemic has caused to working patterns. Meanwhile the nation's ageing population continues to drive demand for affordable retirement housing. ReSI's portfolio is well positioned to meet these needs and provide shareholders with stable inflation-linked income.

"With ongoing operational efficiencies, and our dividend on track to be fully covered from this month, we are encouraged by the outlook for the rest of the year".
