Excerpt from the following article... Urban logistics: it’s always worth going the ‘last mile’ - HTTP:// Europe is set to follow the UK’s example What we have witnessed in the UK is now happening in Europe. Online retailing is a little less advanced in Europe compared to the UK, but it is changing quickly. In 2016, it grew at a faster rate in Europe than the UK a trend expected to be maintained for at least the next five years. This is being driven by several factors: first, the rapid expansion of major online retailers such as Zalando, ASOS, Amazon and others; and second, consumers are becoming increasingly confident in buying online due to wider availability, faster broadband, more mobile devices and simpler payment systems, which in turn is driving yet more online retail growth. Furthermore, major European cities are growing at least as fast as London has been, and they are also experiencing the same shortages of developable land for urban logistics. This makes investment in the sector look appealing. Trends set to continue and intensify, especially in Europe Overall, the trends in the logistics sector are set to intensify, and this supports value and growth in urban logistics. There will be no let-up in population growth in major cities and online retail will continue to expand its requirements for urban logistics units. We are becoming increasingly used to seeing Amazon deliveries and the vans of parcel delivery operators such as DPD shuttling around city streets. But this is balanced against a diminishing supply of land for logistics development in major cities. Rental growth should continue to be strong for property investors. As such, it’s always worth going the ‘last mile’, thanks to the logic of urban logistics.

City BKK leases surrender agreed in Hamburg - HTTPS:// Schroder European Real Estate Investment Trust Plc ("SERE" or the "Company"), the company investing in European growth cities, announces that it has agreed terms for City BKK to surrender its lease at the Hamburg office asset in Germany, in return for a cash payment to the Company of €3.9 million. This cash payment represents 4.7 years of annual rental income from City BKK. Negotiating a surrender with City BKK was a key initiative within the acquisition strategy. The agreement gives SERE the opportunity to re-position the property, re-leasing the space into a strengthening office sub-market and diversifying the property's income profile. The building is located in the fast growing City Süd district, where vacancy rates have fallen substantially to approximately 5% since the Company's acquisition. This has been led by strong take up, as occupiers perceive the City Süd district as providing better value relative to the neighboring city centre, combined with reduction of supply via the conversion of office accommodation to residential and hotel uses. Jeff O'Dwyer, Fund Manager of Schroder REIM, commented: "The surrender payment realises an immediate return for the Company, part of which will be reinvested into the asset to take advantage of favourable office demand conditions and improve the assets longer-term income profile."

SERE acquired the grocery retail assets, in Biarritz and Anglet, in June 2016 by way of a joint venture, acquiring 70% of the investments and the vendor Mercialys, a subsidiary of Casino Group, retaining a 30% interest. The sale price of SERE's 70% interest equates to €44.8 million. Under the option, the re-purchase will exercise on 31 July 2018. The Casino Group will take over SERE's share of the existing debt facility on the assets which amounts to €18.2 million and hence the net equity proceeds to SERE from the sale are approximately €26.6 million.

SCHRODER EUROPEAN REIT SECURES NEW KEY TENANT AT METROMAR SHOPPING CENTRE, SEVILLE (8/1) - HTTPS:// -1,200 sqm letting enhances leisure offering at one of the region's premier family destinations- Schroder European Real Estate Investment Trust plc ("SEREIT"), the company investing in European growth cities, has agreed a new anchor lease with Urban Planet, one of Spain's leading leisure specialists at its Metromar Shopping Centre in Seville, southern Spain. Urban Planet has signed a five year lease, with an option for a further five years, on c. 1,200 sqm of space, at a passing rent ahead of business plan at acquisition. It will be Urban Planet's first leisure centre in the Seville region, with SEREIT having secured exclusivity limiting its opening of other trampoline related businesses in the region. Urban Planet has a strong track record of producing, managing and implementing innovative leisure experiences linked to physical activity. At Metromar, the primary activity will be trampolining, as well as climbing, dodgeball, a children's play area and a food & beverage offering. Catering for all ages, the new space will complement the centre's existing leisure offering, and is expected to significantly drive customer footfall and dwell time. Urban Planet is aiming to commence trading during 2018, following the demolition of the existing unit, and will invest significant capital, demonstrating its commitment to the centre. SEREIT acquired Metromar in May 2017 in joint venture with the Schroder advised Immobilien Europa Direkt, for a purchase price of approximately €52.5 million, reflecting a net initial yield of 6.2%. The 23,500 sqm shopping centre is 99% let to 50 tenants, with a significant convenience retail offering and is anchored by a 2,300 sqm Mercadona grocery supermarket. Jeff O'Dwyer, Fund Manager at Schroder REIM, commented: "One of our acquisition objectives was to identify and deliver a quality leisure operator to what was a historically non-income producing space. We believe that Urban Planet will be a transformational tenant, changing the dynamic of the centre and further improving performance. "Achieved at an attractive passing rent, we expect a positive increase for Q4 2017 valuation and having delivered on our business plan ahead of schedule, it leaves us well placed to secure further leasing and re-gears, on improved rents, as we position Metromar as the region's premier retail and leisure offering."
tyrano - Thanks for your reply. Sorry, I wasn't completely clear with my query. I was trying to establish whether SERE was a member of the UK REIT tax regime whereby the profits of REITs are not subject to corporation tax but 90% of the income profits of their property rental businesses must be distributed to shareholders annually in the form of Property Income Distributions (PIDs) which are subject to withholding tax at the basic rate of income tax (currently 20%). Whilst the company's name is somewhat misleading, SERE have today confirmed to me that the company operates as an Investment Trust, rather than a REIT, and it therefore does not withhold tax on dividends. However, as stated in the last paragraph under Dividend Policy on pg29 of the Nov 2015 prospectus, the company will distribute a minimum of 85% of its income in respect of an accounting period. Prospectus - HTTP:// "In accordance with regulation 19 of the Investment Trust (Approved Company) (Tax) Regulations 2011, the Company will not (except to the extent permitted by those regulations) retain more than 15 per cent. of its income (as calculated for UK tax purposes) in respect of an accounting period." Somewhat confusing but I am now satisfied with the tax treatment of its property income and its dividend distributions. In short SERE is an investment trust, not a REIT. Hope this helps.
speedsgh Schroder European Real Estate Inv Trust REIT = Real Estate Investment Trust
Sorry in advance for the stupid question but is SERE a REIT?
Bought a few, prepared to buy more on further weakness
This is now on my watch list as well 8w. Looking at the way it has dropped recently, I will continue to watch from the sidelines for now and see where it ends up. A big discount and a decent yield is right up my street, but I try to avoid catching falling knives.
lord gnome
Unusually large discount, management changes should not alter investment story. Good diversifier. Could open a position tomorrow?
Written up in Times today
That should have been Investec not Invested, my error.
Invested increasing their holding. That's a positive sign to me.
it was at a premium before
Any views as to why this REIT has fallen so sharply?
Bought this one shortly after launch but in doing so I bought twice the amount I intended to through being careless with the mouse, easy to do whe you are not concentrating. However it was a fortuitous error as it has appreciated 16% since my purchase so I got off lucky. Given that euro economies are in the mire at the moment these guys seem to know what they are doing with their property purchases and there is a good divi on top. If euroland starts to improve this could do very well so I am not selling anytime soon.
