Net rental income is £122 million and finance costs are 23.3 million. Interest cover is therefore 5.2x. Covenants are at 2x. So net rental income would have to drop from 122 to 46.6 before they're in trouble. Debt repayments start in 2023 so got some time..

Agree but since re-opening the fact that only 15% of tenants are back is worrying. If they can navigate their way through this then it is cheap on any measure. The concern is that their capital commitments are I believe £165 million (refurb and development). If income keeps falling they might have to raise equity and dilute. These businesses have a history of raising equity as being REITs they have to pay excess income as dividends and so can only pay down debt via equity or recycling (selling).

I wonder if it will be acquired. For a long term investor this is a perfect opportunity to acquire London property at a big discount. Most of their sites have development potential so valuing them on current yield understates true value. Whilst hard to predict current rent, however once normality returns this is the cheapest and most flexible way to have an office / workspace in London so should benefit from trading down. Working from home is not an option for most businesses.

This was my buy target. Market cap under £1 billion. Now needs a 40% reduction in capital values to put the equity value at risk. Guess they have covenants though and with income falling and capital commitments on new projects it is not as clear cut as my figures suggest....any views anyone?

Suspect div will be held or reduced to reflect lower rents. Property sentiment is on the floor so arguably the time to buy but who knows. Been wrong so far.

LTV of only 21% and 35% reduction before the equity value is in question. Really should be conserving cash but REIT rules mean dividends must be paid at 90% of net income. Yield now almost 7%.

Same - was so obviously super cheap in 2011/12 - not so obvious now - but think will be a long term winner from current trends - just hard to know what the sustainable rent is

This was a favourite holding of mine way back (2012-14). Since so many stocks got smashed down in March I added WKP to my watchlist for stocks rebounding. Sadly its rebound has disappeared and it is already retesting the March low, which itself was below the low of 4 years ago. Latest government guidance I presume will help stop the rot - but I am not buying at the moment.

This has been a multi bagger for me twice going back to when it was London industrial, prefer to think of it as buying London property on close to a 50% discount!

Some can and will, but front room is not a long term substitute for what wkp offer.

Lots of moving parts but very encouraged by the enquiries number for June at circa 75% of old level, lots of businesses will be looking to trade down and wkp should be a well placed recipient given their flexible leases and cost

Yes going to take a while to get back to the new normal. Access to cash not a problem which is a strong plus. Suet

Nothing surprising in today's update for me, occupancy will fall this year, but also good to see enquiries picking up a bit.

Agree this is getting into bargain territory, the latest planning approval is to me indicative of the uplift they can achieve at many of their sites, any relaxation of planning would be very positive ie the nav understates true value. I am not concerned about the rent role on a 12 month view as I think they could benefit from companies downsizing as they realise they can operate from smaller premises (workspace are probably the smallest) , from the demise of shared working areas and potentially from economic slowdown as you tend to see more people start their own company following redundancy.

No position at moment But interested as to what the recently proposed planning reform could do for WKP You will now be able to get PDR on a demolish basis which means that sites which couldn't be converted into resi within existing building envelop may now be viable for resi conversion Resi conversion would of course reduce the impact of any long term secular fall in office demand

Feels like a real bargain but sentiment is shot. Need some time and update on improving rent collection. If things pan out ok we may yet see previous highs one day. Just need to see what the ex covid world looks like

Property valuation £2.6 bn Debt circa £550 m Equity value £1.2 bn. Going to take something like a 30% reduction in commercial property valuations to put the present equity value at risk.....not good on commercial property but seems like a lot...

Yep , nice to get the div, but I guess they have had a strong year and I believe look well placed to cope. This year will see a obvious hit to rental income , but for businesses looking for a new office, a landlord who shares the burden in truly difficult times is attractive and positive for Workspaces reputation. And at the end of the day the properties they own are high quality and still worth far more than today's share price.

A hike in the dividend - that's a real positive. They clearly think they will be very well positioned in the new office world beginning to emerge and it's hard to disagree. It makes a massive difference owning the freeholds and not having people crammed in like WeWork. 2021 will take a hit for 3 months on 50% rents - a lot are going to struggle from 1 July, so it will take careful management of tenants.

Can't believe this is still 700p. Hope their results reassure. Not expecting div to be paid myself. Sure a short term rent hit , but longer term prospects seem compelling.
