Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust: 3QFY19 Results Met Our Expectations

Author:   |    Publish date:

Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust (MNACT) reported a firm set of 3QFY19 results which came in within our expectations. Gross revenue and NPI jumped 19.4% and 18.5% YoY to S$105.6m and S$84.6m, respectively.

This increase was underpinned by organic growth from higher rental from its three assets in China and Hong Kong, coupled with contribution from the acquisition of its Japan portfolio on 25 May 2018. DPU grew 3.2% YoY to 1.927 S cents as the growth in NPI was partially offset by higher finance costs, management fees and an enlarged unit base.

On a 9MFY19 basis, MNACT’s gross revenue and NPI improved 14.8% and 14.3% to S$304.6m and S$245.0m, respectively, with the latter forming 75.2% of our FY19 forecast. DPU of 5.734 S cents represented growth of 2.7% and this constituted 74.9% of our full-year forecast.

Operationally, MNACT’s portfolio continued to remain resilient. Occupancy was near-full at 99.7%, while rental reversions for 9MFY19 came in at +32% for Festival Walk’s (FW) retail component (due to the lease renewal of one of the anchor tenants in 2QFY19 with a low base) and +15% for the office component; +8% for Gateway Plaza; +14% for Sandhill Plaza and +6% for the Japan properties.

There was, however, a 3.4% and 1.0% YoY dip in FW’s shopper traffic and tenants’ sales in 3QFY19, respectively, due to market uncertainties and a softer residential property market. We will provide more details after the analyst conference call.

We currently have a BUY rating and S$1.34 fair value on MNACT.
