Ascendas REIT: Outlook remains healthy

Ascendas REIT (A-REIT) reported 1QFY15 DPU of 3.64 S cents, up 2.5% YoY. This is in line with our expectations. For the quarter, we note that positive rental reversion averaging 11.8% was achieved for leases renewed, as passing rents were still below the current market levels. Notably, the percentage of A-REIT’s rental due for renewal has been reduced from 21.3% at the start of FY15 to 15.4%, thanks to A-REIT’s proactive marketing and negotiation efforts. Looking ahead, management expects reversions to stay positive at mid-to-high single-digit rates in FY15. A-REIT announced two new asset enhancement initiatives (AEIs) to maximise the plot ratio and improve the marketability of the assets. We note that the acquisition of Hyflux Innovation Centre and AEI at 5 Toh Guan Road East was completed in 1Q, and both properties are expected to start contributing to A-REIT’s income. We maintain BUY with an unchanged fair value of S$2.45 on A-REIT.
