European Real Estate: Alive and kicking in the Covid crisis - HTTPS://citywire.co.uk/investment-trust-insider/news/big-broadcast-the-next-growth-opportunities-in-european-property/a1431127 Video of the recent one-hour programme, including the debate and Q&A, involving Jeff O’Dwyer, fund manager of the Schroder European Real Estate (SERE) investment trust, Simon Moore, director of Trust Research, and Citywire’s Gavin Lumsden. Fresh from a Paris property transaction that added 15% to his trust’s asset value, O’Dwyer outlines the office, retail and logistics properties in France, Germany and the Netherlands he believes offer the most exciting development opportunities. In his presentation and the discussion, O’Dwyer seeks to dispel some of the fears around commercial property during the coronavirus pandemic, explaining: ~ how two of the trust’s three retail properties have performed very strongly during the Covid-19 outbreak; ~ why offices have a future if they remain modern, relevant and accessible; ~ the sort of logistics properties he is seeking to add to the portfolio to take advantage of online shopping in Europe; ~ advantages of a diversified portfolio spread across different sectors; ~ how he and his team identify sub-markets in Europe’s best cities to find well-positioned properties that can be refurbished on higher rents to produce growth in capital and income; ~ the importance of working with commercial tenants to maximise occupancy, rental growth and sustainability of properties. In the Q&A, O’Dwyer answers investors’ questions on dividends, which were halved during the first coronavirus lockdowns and subsequently raised by the board to three quarters of their pre-crisis level, leaving the trust on a 5.5% yield; He also explains what the trust’s board is doing about the trust’s wide, but narrowing, share price discount.

Dividend update The Board will continue to review the dividend in 2021, in particular having regard to the reinvestment of the Paris Boulogne-Billancourt sale proceeds, market conditions and the longer term sustainable rental income collected from the portfolio. As announced previously, whilst the refurbishment of Paris Boulogne-Billancourt is being undertaken, it is expected dividend cover from net income will reduce. The Board expects to allocate some of the net sale proceeds from the forward-funding disposal of this asset, towards covering the shortfall in income from Paris Boulogne-Billancourt whilst it is being refurbished and pending reinvestment of the remainder of sale proceeds. Sir Julian Berney Bt., Chairman, commented: "Our operationally strong portfolio, focused on the Winning Cities of Continental Europe, provided a solid foundation coming into the pandemic, which has been borne out through our robust rent collection figures. Through active asset management, in particular, the conditional forward sale of Paris Boulogne-Billancourt, we have further strengthened the Company's balance sheet and prospects over the period. We are looking forward to next year with cautious optimism, with a focus on investing the sales proceeds into new acquisition opportunities in high-growth sectors and cities in order to continue growing net income and the dividend and favourably positioning the portfolio to drive the next phase of the Company's growth." Jeff O'Dwyer, Fund Manager for Schroder Real Estate Investment Management Limited, added: "Despite the challenges presented by Covid-19, significant progress has been made during the reporting period in delivering on the stated strategy. Key to this was the successful execution of our Paris Boulogne-Billancourt initiative, a transformational transaction that is highly accretive for shareholders and underpinned this extremely strong set of results. Whilst we continue to deal with small pockets of underperformance in the portfolio, the REIT is extremely well placed as we move into 2021 to deliver further income and capital growth on behalf of shareholders."

European Real Estate: Alive and kicking in the Covid crisis - HTTPS://citywire.co.uk/investment-trust-insider/news/european-real-estate-alive-and-kicking-in-the-covid-crisis/a1423362 Citywire and Schroders are giving you a chance to learn more about the investment opportunity in European commercial property and to quiz Schroders’ Jeff O’Dwyer about the pros and cons of real estate investment trust at a special one-hour online event at 11.30am on 19 November. Investors have fled the mainstream commercial property market in Europe this year as the coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the decline in high street retailing and raised a big question mark over the future value of offices. These are understandable concerns but, according to O’Dwyer, fund manager of Schroder European Real Estate (SERE), a £174m investment trust offering a 5.5% dividend yield and a wide 40% share price discount, the sector has been oversold. The depressed share prices of diversified real estate investment trusts indicate investors see little value in their portfolios, which O’Dwyer, head of pan-European Real Estate at Schroders, believes is a mistake. AGENDA As with our previous broadcasts, this programme will start with a presentation by O’Dwyer and be followed by a discussion on European real estate with a professional wealth manager alongside O’Dwyer (pictured). There will also be plenty of time for you to submit questions before or on the day in a Q&A that will conclude the online session. In this Citywire Virtual event, O’Dwyer will discuss the opportunities that the real estate sector offers active investors in Europe. With reference to specific case studies, he will show how real estate is about far more than battered retailers and will explain the positive trends that exist alongside the economic pressures from Covid-19. Topics will include: ~ How SERE builds value in the office sector (eg, Boulogne, Paris); ~ Opportunities in data centres and infrastructure (Netherlands); ~ Preserving value in its one shopping centre investment (Seville); ~ ‘Winning cities’ and the story in Berlin; ~ Rental collection supporting attractive dividends.

Rent collection and property valuation update - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/schroder-euro-real--sere-/rns/rent-collection-and-property-valuation-update/202010221045019285C/ Schroder European Real Estate Investment Trust plc ("SERE" or the "Company"), the company investing in European growth cities, today provides an update on rent collection, alongside a quarterly independent valuation of the property portfolio as at 30 September 2020. - Approximately 88% of rent due as at 21 October 2020 has been collected, which is ahead of the amount collected in the previous two quarters. - As at 30 September 2020, the property portfolio was independently valued at €268.6 million, an increase of 9.8%, or €23.9 million, on the 30 June 2020 valuation of €244.7 million. - The valuation increase during the quarter was driven by a number of successful asset management initiatives across the portfolio which included: o Exchanged contracts to sell its Boulogne-Billancourt office asset in Paris for approximately €104 million. The sale is structured as a forward funding, with the building being handed over to the purchaser in H1 2022, following completion of a comprehensive refurbishment which is being undertaken by the Company. The refurbishment and sale follows the agreement of a new 10-year pre-let contract with existing tenant Alten in June this year at a rent 39% higher than the previous rent paid. As at 30 September, the property is held at a valuation of €65.2 million, which reflects the sale price, less an adjustment for the costs, risk and process of the refurbishment. The asset was valued at €41.6 million as at 30 June 2020. o A new five-year lease agreement for a further floor at its Hamburg office investment, representing c. 10% of the lettable area. This resulted in a valuation increase of €0.6 million. o SERE's 50% interest in the Seville shopping centre witnessed a valuation decline of €350,000 or 1.6% over the quarter, resulting in a total valuation decline of 8.6% since the 30 December 2019 valuation (the last quarter not impacted by Covid-19). Recent successful asset management initiatives, including the expansion of the supermarket has helped defend further valuation declines. - The Company remains prudently geared with a loan to value, net of cash, of approximately 25% as at 30 September 2020, with no debt maturity before 2023. In line with previous years, the 30 September 2020 NAV will be included in SERE's full year results for the year ending 30 September 2020, which will be announced on 9 December 2020. There will be a live webcast presentation for analysts and investors on the morning of the results.

Is that deal definite, meaning is the buyer now legally obliged to complete, or is that the next stage. That's a key element to clarify.

I sold RGL to buy SERE. The discount is much larger and the sale of the Paris development gives me a lot more confidence in the valuation of the other assets.

hindsight, it's a vaid question, although I'm not sure what the legalities are. You could always ask Schroders directly, should be contact details on the IR site, would doubt they would comment further though.

Why I ask, is that a blue chip company or a regus offshore type differ a bit these days Imagine when they have half proceeds "50% of the price is to be received on exchange of the definitive deed prior to this calendar year end 2020" things be safe as no doubt have dafault clauses, but till then its thier word if dont know who they are dealing with

The buyer has not been named, unless im misreading the above?. And how can a refurbishment project take until 2022?, that makes no sense to me. They should have provided more detail and clarity

"The sale is structured as a forward funding, with the building being handed over to the purchaser in H1 2022" So buyer not directly named then?

Isn't the NAV value subject to some downward revision on some assets ie the Seville shopping centre ?

Think it's worth keeping an eye on, however what I'm less confident on is attempting to access the value of their other assets. Would be nice to see a few BOD buys. Not sure if the new COVID restrictions in Paris from today impact the construction project as the office refurb is still ongoing. Also is that a definite sale?, I'm unfamiliar with the Frech commercial property buying process. Can the buyer still withdraw from the contract before December etc.

thanks, surely larger capital base means costs spread out over more assets? yes the seville deal looks like a disaster, but even so, with roughly 25% of the portfolio being crystallised at a significant premium to NAV, this leaves the remainder of the portfolio trading at such large discount, you could write that value down to 0 and still discount the remainder of the portfolio by a significant amount, and still leave a margin of safety on the current valuation.

The capital increase since inception is circa 11%. Not including the Paris sale which is yet to conclude. Seville was a really poor buy imv, that hasn't helped sentiment. It's only a 50% share in that development which is arguably even worse if they wanted to exit.

this trades on quite a large discount. any reason? i'm looking at this and thinking the only bad asset is the seville shopping centre which is about 8-9% of gross assets. they seem to have a good logical case behind each asset, and there's modest leverage. only fly in the ointment other than seville is the high ongoing charges? they seem to be going up and up year on year. 2.95% at the latest half year results. any one invested and have any idea why this is?
