I get a DPU of 10.9c. At Friday's price of $1.27, this is an 8.6% yield.
If they had not issued the shares, and instead taken out a loan for the 400M at 7% (like Cambridge did) giving an additional 28M interest payments a year (added to the 57M), and we still had the same revenue cuts as below, then their DPU would have been about 10.8c per share. About the same I guess.
Assumptions and calculations for downward revising of revenue are below. Analysts call this a 'stress test'. I call it some 'calculations on the back of an envelope'.
How much should I decrease their revenue by?
- Firstly, some tenants may go bust. A report by CIMB says that in the 2004 recession, defaults were 1.8%.
- I'm going to use 4%.
- Most of their larger tenants are make up 2% of their revenue, so the above represents two tenants going belly up (and AReit being unable to re-rent out their buildings for 1 year).
- Secondly, rentals may be revised downwards. But most of their tenants are on long leases. See the green bars for the lease expiry as of Mar 08:
- 16% and 15% of their lease revenue expires in 09/10 respectively (total of 31% over 2 years). I'm going to conservatively assume that to keep their customers, they cut the rent 20% for them. This would mean that by 2010, rend is reduced by 7%.
- So we have an 11% discount in total (4% + 7%).
Using the final calculations from the previous post:
Revenue: 363 (reduced by 11%)
Interest costs: 45
Non-Interest costs: 135
Profit for distribution: 183 (divided by 1679 shares gives DPU of 10.9c).
