How Much Is Singapore Press Holdings Worth Now? Disappointing Final Dividend Declaration.
Singapore Press Holdings ("SPH") final results was extremely good if we exclude the worsening performance of its media segment. Anyway, Media segment will be history to SPH soon, as shareholders has voted overwhelmingly in September 2021 to spin it off into the new proposed "company limited by guarantee" model. The final dividend declared of 3 cents per share is extremely stingy and disappointing. I have thought that they would have sweeten the Keppel Corp deal for shareholders by giving extra special dividends to keep retail shareholders happy so as to support the takeover. Updated Keppel Corp's Offered ConsiderationSince the offer was announced on 2 August 2021, Keppel REIT's price has dropped a lot which does impact the deal being offered to SPH shareholders. Let us start to do a l

Commentary: SPH’s media demerger: important for shareholders to vote
This is the original commentary by SIAS, unedited version from The Business Times, The Straits Times and Lianhe Zaobao publications on 06 September 2021 Before the end of this year, shareholders of Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) will have to decide on the fate of their company, once a prominent blue chip but one that has now fallen on difficult times, mainly because of a structural decline in its media advertisement revenue. This decline has been reflected in the company’s shares; the price having fallen from the S$4 level in 2014 to around S$1 in November 2020 despite the company having diversified into other non-media areas like property, aged care provision and student accommodation. Indeed, the fact that SPH was removed from its own benchmark blue chip Straits Times Index in June las

Here’s How The Stocks Within The Singapore’s Straits Times Index (STI) Have Changed Since 1998
With a history dating back to 1966, the Straits Times Index (STI) was originally coined as the Straits Industrial Index. After 30-odd years, the Straits Industrial Index was eventually succeeded by Straits Times Index on 31 August 1998. The reason for changing the index was to allow the index to cover more sectors and properly reflect the daily trading activities of stocks on SGX (or then-Stock Exchange of Singapore). Established by SPH, SGX and FTSE Russell, the index is reviewed on a semi-annual basis. Companies can be removed and added to the index based on their market capitalisation changes. Since STI’s official inception, the index has undergone several changes. The most recent major movement would be the replacement of SPH with Mapletree Industrial Trust on June 2020. Here, we com

Monthly wrap for August 2021: Decoupled from Wall St, the STI lost 3.5%, falling below 3,200 and 3,100 to 6-month low
STI shed 111 points to six-month low of 3,055.05 in August; Wall St’s all-time highs and optimism had little impact here; US market continued to bank on “transitory’’ inflation and “Goldilocks’’ scenario, although wary of Fed’s tapering; Delta variant was a concern throughout the month; Keppel’s bid to take SPH private was main corporate development Not a good month for the STI as it first lost 3,200 then 3,100 At the risk of stating the obvious, August was not particularly memorable as far as the local stock market was concerned as the Straits Times Index recorded a 111-points or 3.5% loss at 3,055.05. Technically inclined observers would know that the index had actually risen above 3,200 during the month but lost this mark in the second week. By the third and fourth

The Keppel Corp and SPH Deal That You Need to Be Careful On- NOT Done Deal Yet.
The lightning speed of the announcement this week by Keppel Corp on the acquisition of Singapore Press Holdings Group ("SPH") caught many folks by surprise. Although I have mentioned on my 25 July 2021 post that corporate actions for SPH should eventually come as "it is an inevitable eventuality given the benefits of economies of scale", the sudden materialization of corporate action still have me reeling in surprise and my jaw dropping. Are we finally bidding a last farewell to SPH which was incorporated on 4th August 1984? Is the offer of S$2.2 billion enough to convince existing Keppel Corp and SPH shareholders to say "yes" to the deal?1. S$2.2 billion offer by Keppel Corp is a very good deal?Unfortunately, the answer to this is a big "No No" as evident in the current market pricing of

CICT vs MCT: Which is the better investment?
It’s no big secret that we’re a fan of Singapore REITs in general. The good REITs own a portfolio of properties that generate steady rental income and pay a growing tax-free dividend. Besides that, you also get to enjoy some upside in capital appreciation. While the pandemic has affected retail and commercial REITs more so than others, the well-managed REITs that own high-quality properties in good locations will continue to do well in a post-pandemic world. In Singapore, the two largest retail-commercial REITs are CapitaLand Integrated Commercial Trust (CICT) and Mapletree Commercial Trust (MCT). Both own a portfolio of high-quality shopping malls and office buildings in Singapore (CICT also has a small portfolio in Germany), and have a track record of paying a stable dividend.

Soon after, both SPH and Keppel released a joint statement for a proposed acquisition offer from Keppel at $2.2 billion for SPH non-media assets.

5 Things To Know About Keppel Corp Privatisation Offer For SPH
Earlier today on 2 August 2021, Singapore Press Holdings (SGX: T39) along with SPH REIT (SGX: SK6U), Keppel Corp (SGX: BN4), and Keppel REIT (SGX: K71U) called for a trading halt. Shortly after, SPH announced that it had received a privatisation offer from Keppel Corp (SGX: BN4). According to SPH, the offer is worth $3.4 billion. This offer will not come as a surprise to anyone. Given that SPH was already looking to hive off its loss-making media business, this meant that the company would be left with just its property, student accommodation and aged care business. And a large part of its property business was also via its majority ownership of SPH REIT, which is listed on the SGX as well. For anyone who has some shares in SPH currently, here are 5 things you should know. #1 For existing

Lendlease Commercial REIT Diversification Into Suburban Shopping Mall- Additional Acquisition of JEM
Lendlease Commercial REIT ("LREIT") just announced a proposed additional acquisition of stakes in Jurong East Mall (JEM)  for S$204.1Mil from 2 funds holdings shares in it. LREIT has also offered up to another S$178.2Mil to other 3rd party investors in the Lendlease Asian Retail Investment Fund 3 Limited for up to another 19.8% interest stake if they are keen to sell off their stakes. This will raise LREIT's overall stake in JEM from 3.75% (purchased in Oct''20) to 31.8%. In a way, LREIT seems to be struggling to obtain a 51% majority stake in JEM due to the different external unit-holders holding a single completed property.  Some key highlights to note:1. Future M&A exercise going forward is expected to progress at a snail's pace similar to current situation since IPOO

Is Now A Good or Bad Time To Buy Hospitality and Office REITs?
With Singapore reverting to a “Phase 2 (Heightened Alert)” to curb the spread of COVID-19, the office and hospitality REITs look to be some of the biggest losers in the stock market. As of this article’s writing, the largest office REITs in Singapore have all traded down relatively sharply when the latest announcement was made on 14 May 2021. Local investors must now be wondering if this is a good time to buy a larger chunk of Singapore Office REITs or whether deeper price cuts will occur going forward.

REITs Report Card 2021: How Singapore REITs Performed In 1st Quarter 2021
With access to properties and relatively good yields, Singapore investors enjoy investing in REITs. Given that the low-interest-rate environment is here to stay, REITs continue to be able to refinance their debt at attractive levels. The one thing REIT investors need to be watchful about is how COVID-19 will change the way we live, work and play – as these will affect the various property types differently and also in different geographic regions. Even one year after COVID-19 was first reported, hospitality REITs continue to be impacted. Meanwhile, logistics, data centre and healthcare REITs are more relevant than ever.
