Salpara - I'd go along with you but for ... long term structural decline. Both supply and demand are at work, and supply of high quality, refurbished properties or new ones in (say) Leeds could signal a selective revival. Both Hammerson and LandSecs are busy there, and Leeds is a vibrant, wealthy economy. (I know, as my wife contributes a lot to it!) And not just here, but premium sites (commercial, industrial, retail) should do the biz for companies with the capital to refurbish. Say 'cyclical decline' and I'll concur.

Held these for a long time and sold with a big loss last year around the 36p level, only to see them rally to over 40p ! I won't invest in any company of this nature at present due to the fact that commercial property values outside the southeast of england are in long term structural decline. Given that interest rates are at long term historical lows the only way they can go in the future is up and when that cycle does finally start it will apply further downward pressure on capital values. Having said that, if they dropped back to the 32p level I could be tempted but not as a long term play.

I think it fair to equate the low LTV with a lower discount. The discount implying that property values are expected to fall further. Personally I don't think 100% cover is all that critical as long as the cash drain were modest and non-impacting. 90% by end 2013 would do me - at that point becomes irrelevant compared to property price movement.

LTV down to 31% though and plenty of cash swilling about. Perhaps they will put it to good use.

So....Divi held....NAV reduced again....Discount just 18%....perhaps not high enough!

I.M.S. NAV and Dividend Net Asset Value Schroder Real Estate Investment Trust Limited announces an unaudited net asset value ('NAV') of £165.6 million or 46.5 pence per share ('pps') as at 31 December 2012. This reflects a decrease of 3.8% compared with the NAV as at 30 September 2012 of £172.1 million. This resulted in an unaudited NAV total return for the 2012 calendar year of 5.7%. Dividend The Company announces an interim dividend of 0.88 pps for the period 1 October 2012 to 31 December 2012. The dividend payment will be made on 22 February 2013 to shareholders on the register on 8 February 2013. The ex-dividend date will be 6 February 2013. Pre-tax dividend cover over the quarter to 31 December 2012 was 69% which compared with pre-tax dividend cover of 60% for the nine months to 30 September 2012. The Board continues to keep dividend policy under close review with a view to ensuring the Company can deliver a sustainable level of cover whilst having due regard to current and anticipated future market conditions, rental values and the outcome of any future debt refinancing.

Having come all this way WITHOUT cutting the dividend, surely they wouldn't do so now........or would they? No... Not major concerns, but the niggles here are: # Still uncovered div # Debt refinancing still o/s # NAV discount just 20% ...so on a valuation basis, I prefer PCTN & MCKS.

I think the dividend will be covered by the end of this year, if not before.

That is my one big fear, speedsgh. They say that they are working to improve dividend cover as a priority, but an uncovered dividend must always present a real risk.

SKYSHIP et al - In your opinion is there any likelihood that SREI may re-base the dividend as PCTN did recently?

If they can do a deal that is anywhere near as good as that done by PCTN we'll be off to the races. I like the way that this is shaping up. I plan to add more SREI and PCTN. Property will comeback into fashion one day and I hope to be fully loaded when it does. In the meantime the high yields on offer and the good asset backing make it worth the wait.

"The Company continues to pursue refinancing options well in advance of the loan maturing in July 2014." Yes, they obviously want to lock in these low interest rates - waiting for July'14 would likely be way too late. I suspect H1'13 a more likely prospect, even if it does trigger major swap breakage costs.

rns re latest debt repayment - http://uk.advfn.com/news/UKREG/2012/article/55572467. current loan facility matures in July 2014 but SREI say they are looking to refinance well in advance of maturity. what's the general consensus on likely timescales for having the refinancing sorted? H2 2013?

topvest - yes, they're doing a great job - the balancing act will be to try to maintain the uncovered divi whilst rejigging the debt. I'm more confident on that than I was a few weeks ago!

Well I suppose this gets them to a LTV of 30% which is more conservative - be helpful if they said what their target was. I guess there will also be some swap breakage costs when the debt is repaid. They have done a good job here to deleverage in a non-dilutive way.

I was out (at the TCSC AGM, as it happens) so haven't been able to give this much thought. I see they tell us that the dividend is 60% covered by net rental income (why not "only 60%..."?). This is a bit of a worry - potentially a bigger one. They are selling properties which yield less than debt interest which will be beneficial to cover, and the resultant paying-down of debt is probably essential in view of upcoming renewal negotiations. However, it has the unfortunate effect of crystallising SWAPs losses. I suspect there's pressure on them to maintain the dividend from, principally, income funds which hold the shares. As a direct private investor, I can see through their policy of paying me 3.52p pa, of which 1.4p is my own capital. With a revival of the market and hardening of rents the dividend will become fully covered, of course. We need to hope this will start to happen before debt comes up for renewal.

red army - yes, absolutely, but I think SREI are selling assets which generate rental less than the apportioned loan interest. As for borrowing to maintain an uncovered dividend, I can't look on that with approval!

jonwig Reducing debt for reducing debts sake can have a detrimental effet ie selling the very assetts that provide the income for dividend etc.
