Keppel DC REIT, Mapletree Logistics Trust & ParkwayLife REIT Lodge Gains in 2020 YTD


PUBLISHED ON |

28 April 2020

  • Keppel DC REIT, Mapletree Logistics Trust & Parkway Life REIT have generated gains in the 2020 YTD, leading the overall S-REIT Sector which has averaged a 22% decline over the period, with an average 38% decline to 23 March, and an average 28% gain from 23 March to 27 April.

  • Keppel DC REIT, Mapletree Logistics Trust & Parkway Life REIT are also amongst the 22 S-REITs that report more than a third of their revenue to Singapore. Of the 22 S-REITs, 14 have been listed for the past 10 years with average annualised total returns of 7%. 

  • In line with its capital recycling strategy and in order to realise profits that can be redeployed to capture new opportunities, Keppel T&T has entered into a Sale and Purchase Agreement with a placement agent for the sale of 38 million units in Keppel DC REIT at S$2.42 per Sale Unit.




With a combined market value of S$90 billion, S-REITs make up 11% of the market capitalisation of all stocks in Singapore. Growing investor participation in recent years has seen REITs contributing 29% of daily turnover in the 2020 year to 27 April.

The majority of the S-REIT market capitalisation and S$425 million in average daily turnover in the 2020 year to 27 April is made up of the 22 REITs or Stapled Trusts that report at least one-third of their revenue to Singapore.


SREIT Revenue Exposure


There has been less distinction in the 2020 year-to-date total returns, with the 22 S-REITs that report more than a third of their revenue to Singapore seeing similar swings as the S-REITs that report less than a third to none of their revenue to Singapore. As illustrated below, the two genres of S-REITs saw similar declines in the 2020 year through to 23 March, and similar partial recoveries from 23 March to 27 April.

Trio of REITs that have Lodged Gains in 2020 YTD

The 22 S-REITs that report more than a third of their revenue to Singapore included the three strongest S-REITs in the 2020 year through to 27 April that bucked the global trend of declines.

Keppel DC REIT generated a 22.2% total return in the 2020 year through to 27 April, with Mapletree Logistics Trust gaining 4.2% and Parkway Life REIT gaining 0.9%. Both Keppel DC REIT and Mapletree Logistics Trust were amongst the three S-REITs that saw the highest net institutional inflows over the 17 weeks.



Keppel T&T Realising Profits in Keppel DC REIT

In its 1QFY20 Key Business and Operational Update (click here), Keppel DC REIT reported its 1QFY20 (ended 31 Mar) gross revenue rose 25.5% from 1QFY19.

Prior to the 28 April session, Keppel Corporation announced that Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation (“Keppel T&T”), through its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Keppel DC Investment Holdings had on 27 April 2020 entered into a sale and purchase agreement with Credit Suisse (Singapore) Limited as the placement agent for the sale of 38 million units in Keppel DC REIT.

These sales units represent approximately 2.33% of the total issued units in Keppel DC REIT, with a consideration of S$2.42 per sale unit. In line with the Group’s capital recycling strategy, the sale allows Keppel T&T to realise profits that can be redeployed to capture new opportunities. As maintained in the announcement (click here) Keppel T&T continues to be the single largest unitholder of Keppel DC REIT with a unitholding of 20.58%.



Mapletree Logisitics Trust Performance Underpinned by Stable Operations & Accretive Acquisition

On 23 April, Mapletree Logistics Trust reported its FY19/20 (ended 31 Mar) DPU rose 2.5% from FY18/19 to 8.142 cents. The Managers of Mapletree Logistics Trust maintained that currently most of its tenants across its eight markets are operational: In Mapletree Logistics Trust’s top three core markets, for Hong Kong SAR ;and Japan, all tenants remain fully operational, while for Singapore about 5% of its tenant base is impacted.  The Managers added that there are strict government measures in certain markets, its tenants’ operations have remained largely intact:

  • Overall, tenants from the retail, hospitality and travel industries, which account for about 10% of Mapletree Logistics Trust’s revenue, are the hardest hit by COVID-19; while
  • Tenants who serve essential daily needs, such as food and beverage products, consumer staples and healthcare, continue to see healthy levels of activity, especially for the ecommerce operators. These sectors account for over 30% of Mapletree Logistics Trust’s revenue.

Parkway Life REIT Reported Stable Performance Amidst COVID-19 Outbreak in 1Q20

On 22 April, Parkway Life REIT reported its DPU in 1QFY20 (ended 31 Mar) grew by 1.4% to 3.32 Singapore cents, from 3.28 Singapore cents in 1QFY19. Gross revenue rose 5.2% year-on-year to S$29.9 million in 1Q 2020. Growth was largely attributed to additional revenue contribution from the three Japan properties acquired in 4QFY19, upward revision of the minimum guaranteed rent for Singapore hospitals by 1.61% as well as the appreciation of Japanese Yen (“JPY”). The Group also noted it is setting aside S$1.7 million to provide targeted assistance and support measures for affected tenants as needed. As part of Parkway Life REIT’s ongoing efforts to strengthen its balance sheet through proactive debt management, the Group successfully secured a six-year up to S$82.0 million committed loan facility during the quarter.
