Interim Management Statement & Dividend Policy Dividend policy Post-tax dividend cover over the quarter to 31 March 2013 was 57% which compared with dividend cover for the year to 31 March 2013 of 60%. Dividend cover over this period has been supressed partly as a result of property disposals in order to optimise the refinance terms. Following the completion of the refinancing, the Board and its advisors have undertaken a review of the longer term sustainability of the dividend, currently 0.88 pence per share per quarter. Considerations have included current and anticipated future market conditions, on-going capital requirements and property specific factors such as the recent planning refusal at Reynards Trading Estate in Brentford. Following this review the Board has concluded that a sustainable dividend, based on the Company's portfolio and business plans, is 0.62 pence per share per quarter, representing a reduction of 30% from the current level of dividend. Coupled with the new financing arrangements, the new dividend policy is intended to put the Company on a stronger financial footing in an economic and market environment which remains challenging. The Company announces an interim dividend of 0.88 pps for the period 1 January 2013 to 31 March 2013. The dividend payment will be made on 24 May 2013 to shareholders on the register on 3 May 2013. The ex-dividend date will be 1 May 2013. The adjustment to the reduced level of dividend will take effect from the quarter ending 30 June 2013.

Cut to 0.62p per Q And crystallised all swap costs - over £15m ... If I read correctly then NAV not affected by above since exchanging cash for M2M liability? So trading close to NAV with a divi of ~6%?

They are clearly considering a dividend cut, but it is not likely to be too drastic. If they cut to .75 {as PCTN} that will still be just over 7% return and they are now very solid. As a gamble I'd bet on a drop to .8p

Anyway, price is rising, now I've sold mine, so presumably most holders are not convinced of a dividend cut, or not bothered!

Thanks for the link, Skinny. Trades not showing up there either. No doubt they'll pop out of one of the systems at some point. jonwig - i concur that a cut in the dividend is sensible. i don't have a problem with it, however i do expect the uncertainty over the ongoing dividend level to have an effect in the share price in the short term. the share price action at PCTN during the corresponding period of uncertainty provides a pointer as to the possible scenario here imo.

ADVFN stopped showing PLUS trades a couple of years ago - I believe they can still be seen here.

speedsgh - if your trades don't show, could they be coming through PLUS? I use TDD and my contract note often shows the trade done on PLUS, not LSE. As for dividends, how much does it really matter in total? If the dividend is uncovered and maintained, you're drawing cash from the company which it hasn't earned (or, indeed, it's borrowed to pay you). If covered, you're getting your slice of income. Personally, I'd prefer a cut so that cash can be used for refurbishment and - ultimately - capital appreciation. But many holders (OEICS, say) will want the dividends to prove they can maintain their yield.

Have a glance at dsc, that is where my 75 and more went from here.

Likewise I have just offloaded my entire holding which was of a fair size (trades not yet showing). Was pleasantly surprised at the price I got. Sold to preserve capital while uncertainty of level of re-based dividend persists. I hope to be back relatively soon however. GLTA

It may not be too bad. PCTN shares dropped initially on the news of the divi reduction, but recovered quickly. IC reckoned SREI's cover was 70%, add in the management enhancements and the reduction in interest costs and we could be close to full cove. Even so, at the very least, I expect a cut to 0.75p per quarter. I have just sold my holding in anticipation of a drop when the cut is announced. This could be as early as next week when we are due for the next dividend announcement.

Picton Property went down the same road last year: Long term refinancing arranged with Life companies then a cut in dividend to 100% cover. Last time I looked dividend cover for SREI was around 65% with planned management developments due to increase that to 80%. So at least 20% drop on the cards.

Cut inevitable - no longer a distinct possibility. Reynards is a disgrace. Should be reversed upon appeal to Government. Many Labour councils view development as profiteering by capitalist Rachmanns; and vote down even the most sensible of proposals which would benefit their electorate directly and indirectly through later taxation. Well timed switch Elmfield.

"The successful refinancing of the loan will allow the Board, in turn, to consider the longer term sustainability of the dividend. The terms of the new loan will be taken into account alongside other factors, including the recent planning refusal at Reynards Trading Estate in Brentford. The Board will update shareholders in due course." Sound ominous. Winterflood reckon "dividend cut is a distinct possibility" At least long tern financing has been sorted on reasonable terms.

Yes, I would agree - I'm also more interested in maintaining NAV growth and having a sustainable covered dividend. The Property Income Trust model of distributing capital doesn't really work in today's property world.

bisiboy - the point about owning 'secondary property' is that periodic refurbishment needs to progress as leases come up for renewal in order to maintain asset value: it can collapse otherwise. Hence you need headroom on loans, or retained earnings, or asset sales which take out non-performers. So far, SREI has managed the last one well - I'd be relaxed if they dropped to a covered dividend as total return is more important (to me) than paid-out income. Investor's Chronicle had a substantial article a couple of weeks ago highlighting the pros and cons of this kind of propco - SREI was one of their suggestions. Looking at the recent posts here, I'd back the asset managers (Schroders - good) to get the right result for shareholders. So I'd agree with you 'solid long term hold' and still be comfortable with a dividend cut from 3.52p to something like 2.3p. On discounts, these companies seem to be pretty tight: SLI is at a small premium, FCCP at a larger one. Any propco on a significant discount to NAV has either a known problem or a sceptical audience.

i dont see why they need to cut the dividend now they have re financed. planning news is will come very shortly i think and divi ca be maintained through their management and trading activities and cash reserves. now i think a solid long term hold

i believe picton had a blended rate of 4.8% so was a little dissapointed we couldnt do better.maybe the amortisation picton have made the difference. would like to hear some positive news regarding reynards planning application soon.

Correct topvest - this is another of the favourable consequences of the new deal. The funding is in place for many years to come at a modest cost. As you say prospects look good going forward. In my opinion there are more reasons to hold than to sell.

The debt cost will be nearly 15% lower going forwards - 5% versus 5.7% - this will help build more dividend cover. I think today's announcement is good news. They can start again from a sound financial position and long term funding in place. There may be a small reduction in the dividend, but prospects here now look pretty good in my view.

Yes, I was effectively saying that one can expect a dividend adjustment downwards. That will improve the company's position still further. The market will react positively to that, since this stock is not really rated by it's dividend percentage, but by a combination of factors which is presently improving (and will be improved still further by a dividend reduction). Whilst I don't disagree that the NAV discount has firmed up considerably, that is simply a reflection of the overall mix of improving parameters. The share price may not have much upside in the near future, but neither does it have much downside potential, and a dividend reduction will not change that analysis.

Agree with that but you have to hand it to the team running this just how good they are, what else will yet surprise us?

I am not so sure about that redsonning. The dividend here is uncovered at present and I wouldn't be surprised to see a reduction at some stage. The discount to NAV is now also rather tight compared to many other quality property stocks.
