Things to Note
Weakness in Manufacturing Sector
Manufacturing sector is slowing down which affects the industrial property market. This has a downward pressure on industrial rents and occupancy.
Long Term Leases
Long term leases of 5 to 15 years provide stability.
Fixed Annual Rental Escalation of Master Leases
Fixed annual rental escalation of master leases applies to its tenants (Solaris, NK Ingredients, COS Printers, BK Marine, Tellus Marine, KTL Offshore, Speedy-Tech, Technics).
Look carefully at the financial statements. Soilbuild Reit is paying distribution out of increase in fair value of property using their cash reserves for 2014 and 2015. This artificially boost their dpu and gives a misleading picture of the dpu that’s sustainable. Dumped all my soilbuild shares when I realized it today.
