Singapore property: First circuit breaker scorecard

0

This report summarises statistics on valuations, performance, and capital structures of the 44 real estate investment trusts (REITs) and business trusts listed in Singapore, with a combined market capitalisation of US$74.0bn. In terms of YTD price performance; SREITs are down -8.2% while Developers are down -24.7%.

The Q220 results season reinforced the resilience of Industrials with steady performance and minimal rebates required. This momentum should continue through H2 and would be supplemented by inorganic opportunities.

Headlines for Office were within expectations though the decline in market rents accelerated (-3% QoQ) and vacancies rose. Leasing activity stayed muted with little leasing progress at KREIT’s ORQ, and
CCT’s Six Battery Road and CapitaSpring.

The ‘Circuit Breaker’ phases hindered take-up though we believe tenants are also adopting a wait-and-see approach while assessing their post-pandemic space requirements. Grade A rents could undershoot our -5% 2020 forecast. In Retail, most managers increased payout ratios given better cashflow visibility upon reopening.

However, we think there would be challenges ahead as operations are far from normal. Occupancies and rents started to trend 0.8-2ppt and 0-3% lower in Q2. Store closures have been minimal and could increase.

Guidance is increasingly cautious. Suburban malls with strong neighbourhood support have demonstrated greater resilience versus downtown alternatives.

For example, the decline in FCT’s footfall narrowed to -39% in July, ahead of 50-60% fall for industry peers. Its rent reversion also stayed flat while competitors were negative.

Home prices rose 0.3% QoQ in 2Q20

0

The URA private residential price index in Singapore rose 0.3% QoQ in 2Q, after a 1.5% upward revision to an earlier released flash estimate on July 1, suggesting prices rose more significantly in the later part of June.

The increase was driven by a 3% rise in the non-landed city centre (CCR) segment. Meanwhile, public housing (HDB) resale prices rose 0.2% QoQ.

Unsold inventory (comprising mostly projects which have yet to launch) fell further, from 29k units to 28k units (2000-19 average: 35k), as home sales continued to outpace landbank replenishment. Vacancies were unchanged at 5.4%.

We think the uptick in home prices is likely a positive surprise to market expectations, that could help drive a narrowing of the gap between property developer share prices and their RNAVs.

Comparative Market Analysis

Pricing Overview

There aren’t many residential developments in District 2 (Tanjong Pagar area), compared to other parts of Singapore.

In an area dominated by high-rise office buildings, residential developments are forced to play second fiddle in terms of quantity.

Quality-wise however, less is in this case, definitely more.

District 2 properties make up for their fewer numbers with high prices; some of the steepest in Singapore as seen from the table above.

However, the value it provides is well-worth the money. District 2 properties tick all the boxes for key considerations like convenience, amenities, and transport.

The new condo at Bernam Street can potentially do better than its District 2 counterparts. Especially since its location is arguably the most strategic of the lot.

This is likely to attract high-quality tenants who can afford pricier rental rates, in exchange for a better quality of life.

Rental Volume Overview

As mentioned above, District 2 properties have the ability to command high rental rates.

This may affect rental volume to a certain degree. But it’s more than adequately compensated by the higher quantum/profits per rental.

A quick glance at the table above will show that even though rental volume isn’t as high as other more affordable areas, numbers are still healthy.

The good news is that rental volume is projected to grow in future. As Singapore begins importing more C-Level executives to our shores, the new condo at Bernam Street is very possibly, a prime choice for their temporary homes.

Rental Yield Overview

Traditionally, District 2 properties tend to make sizable profits for landlords.

District 2’s centralized location is a key factor in attracting tenants looking for fast commutes to their work places in the CBD.

The new condo at Bernam Street has a slight advantage over other District 2 properties, as its status as a mixed use development offers greater convenience.

The unique structural design aimed at providing tranquility also differentiates it positively from other run-of-the-mill condos.

Although prices have not been released, it’s safe to assume that the new condo at Bernam Street will be a savvy investment that can reap long-term rental income.

Comparative market analysis

District 15 property prices have traditionally been robust. The city fringe location and easy access to a wide range of amenities make the area one of the best places to live in.

Further developments underway, such as new MRT stations to improve connectivity, is set to enhance District 15’s living conditions.

This is likely to reflect in property prices. Meaning to say, current prices are predicted to increase even more over the next few years.

This bodes well for [email protected] Coast, which will benefit from the area’s improvements and see a gradual year-on-year pricing increment.

Investors and buyers who take action fast, can capitalize on this uptrend and snag their preferred units at an under-valued price.

Capital Gain Overview

The table above shows the tremendous capital gain potential of District 15 properties.

2 key factors are usually present when analyzing capital gain numbers: Demand and area improvement.

District 15 properties tick both boxes, and that’s why capital gain numbers have soared.

When [email protected] Coast hits its TOP date 3-5 years from now, it is likely to be high-in-demand, especially since it only has 41 units available.

District 15’s living conditions will have improved massively as well, which is projected to result in a spike in [email protected] Coast’s capital gain figures.

Rental overview

City fringe areas like District 15 have always been popular among tenants. Convenience and close proximity to the city are always major draws for professionals looking to rent.

What sets District 15 apart from other city fringe locations is the superior living environment. More amenities usually means higher standard of living.

[email protected] Coast’s exclusivity (41 units only) can be a differentiating factor too. Many tenants value privacy, and not many developments can offer peace and quiet in our bustling city.

Those factors are likely to elevate [email protected] Coast to one of Singapore’s most in-demand properties among potential tenants.

THE high merchant fees charged by food delivery platforms are under scrutiny amid the Covid-19 outbreak, in a reckoning that may be overdue. The big question now is if these apps have fallen short on delivering productivity gains that translate to cost savings.

With the freeze on dining-in up to May 4, on-demand food delivery apps GrabFood, foodpanda and Deliveroo have been elevated to the league of essential services.

It would seem like the opportunity of a lifetime for the disruptors to display operational efficiency. After all, scale is something that these players have fought tooth and nail for in a years-long cash burn war.

THE Reit Association of Singapore (Reitas) has cautioned against putting “significant strain” on landlords’ finances with a new Bill that may give businesses a reprieve from contractual obligations including rent payments, even as it acknowledged the importance of supporting tenants in the crisis.

The association flagged its concerns in a statement on Monday night, ahead of Tuesday’s Parliament sitting where the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) Bill will be introduced.

Under the Bill, a tenant whose business is affected by the coronavirus outbreak is entitled to suspend rental payments for six months. Also, a landlord cannot terminate the lease or licence due to non-payment of rent, if the reason is Covid-19.

WHILE valuations for Singapore’s hospitality Reits look attractive after the counters have been driven down in recent weeks, it may be too early for investors to take the plunge just yet.

For one, with countries around the world slamming their borders shut, there is very little visibility as to when travel demand will return.

Meanwhile, with hotels running at low occupancies, it is likely that cuts to distribution per unit (DPU) are imminent, analysts say.

SUNTEC City said it is waiving the rents for mall tenants for a month, in line with the government’s call to boost support for businesses and protect jobs during the circuit-breaker period.

The waiver of rent from April 1 to April 30, 2020 will be funded entirely by the landlord. It will also extend this rental waiver to tenants providing essential services such as supermarkets, pharmacies, food and beverage outlets and banks.

Suntec City said it will also pass on the full savings of the property tax rebates to all tenants in May 2020. A portion of the savings had been passed on in March, and the balance will be passed on in the form of rental rebates for the period from May 1 to May 31, 2020.

MAINBOARD-LISTED developer Oxley Holdings said on Monday that it has sold 73 per cent of its Singapore development portfolio, which comprises 3,923 units in total.

The group is set to recognise S$2.4 billion in secured revenue from its Singapore projects. The sum will be recognised over the next two years.

The bulk of the secured revenue comes from sales at Riverfront Residences, in which Oxley has a 35 per cent stake, and Affinity at Serangoon, in which the group has a 40 per cent stake.

PROPERTY group CapitaLand has reopened all its malls in China that were previously shut due to the country’s coronavirus lockdown.

The group’s four malls in Wuhan – the epicentre of the outbreak – reopened on April 2 after receiving clearance from local authorities.

About 80 per cent of stores in CapitaLand’s malls and business parks in China were in operation as at end-March, the property giant said in a bourse filing on Monday.

CITY Developments Limited (CDL), one of Singapore’s largest commercial landlords, on Monday said it is committing more than S$17 million in property tax and rental rebates to help its office and retail tenants tide over the novel coronavirus outbreak.

The amount includes the full quantum of the government’s enhanced property tax rebates, announced last month under the Resilience Budget, to be passed on to CDL’s tenants. These enhanced rebates comprise the 100 per cent property tax rebate for qualifying commercial properties and 30 per cent for businesses in other non-residential properties such as offices and industrial properties.

CDL on Monday said it has disbursed rental rebates “in a targeted manner” to qualifying retail tenants in March.

REAL estate agencies are rolling out support packages to their salespeople to tide them over the mandated one-month stoppage due to Covid-19.

The five largest property agencies which account for the lion’s share of the 30,000 agents in Singapore say their help includes commission advances, waiving fees as well as paying for professional courses agents have to attend to stay licensed.

Propnex, Singapore’s largest property agency has rolled out a S$30 million plan to help its 8,500 agents.

MAPLETREE Investments, which is owned by Singapore’s state investor Temasek Holdings, has said it has raised some US$1.8 billion in equity for its pan US-European logistics fund.

The syndication of the fund, MUSEL Private Trust, was supported by institutional, corporate and high-net-worth investors.

SINGAPORE firms have registered their worst payment performance since the third quarter of 2016, and the downtrend is expected to continue as firms are exposed to a higher risk of payment delinquency in the months to come, the Singapore Commercial Credit Bureau (SCCB) said in a report on Monday.

“The marked deterioration in payment performance is a clear sign that firms are struggling to meet their debt obligations with creditors,” said Audrey Chia, chief executive officer of D&B Singapore, which SCCB operates under.

Prompt payments plunged 8.5 percentage points year-on-year (y-o-y) to 43.20 per cent from 51.70 per cent while on a quarterly basis, it had fallen 3.03 percentage points from 46.23 per cent.

Popular closes all 16 bookstores in Hong Kong after 40 years

0

Popular Bookstore announced on March 18, 2020, the closure of all its 16 bookstores after 40 years of operation in HK.

This is the first mass-retail chain closure in 2020, after mid- to high-end fashion retailer J Crew and Aland closed all their stores in HK in Feb-20 and Mar-20 respectively.

Stocks that are impacted by the above include Link REIT and SHKP (3 bookstores; 1 fashion store each), Sino (3 bookstores), Wharf REIC (2 fashion stores), Kerry (1 bookstore and 1 fashion store) and Fortune REIT (1 bookstore).

Among malls, Link REIT’s TOP and Kerry’s Megabox have closures of both bookstores and fashion stores.

Analysts remain cautious on both luxury and mass retail landlords.

Mass retail malls operators (such as Link REIT, Fortune REIT) will also likely see vacancy pressure, despite resilient retail sales performance.

This is because chain retailers’ cash flow will be stretched for their stores in mid- to high-end malls/streets, in a prolong retail downcycle since 3Q19.

Singapore hotel industry decimated by Covid-19

0

Singapore hotel occupancy was 51% in February, bringing RevPAR declines for the month to 41%.

Performance is likely to deteriorate further as occupancies have since fallen to 20%.

Worst even months expected in Mar/Apr.

On track for worst-ever monthly performance: Singapore hotel RevPAR dropped 41% on average, according to data released by the Singapore Tourism board for the month of February.

This was a result of average hotel occupancy shrinking 37ppt to 51% (ARR: +2% YoY). These numbers are about to worsen come March, which is shaping up to be the worst month in history for the industry.

Deputy Prime Minister Heng announced on March 26 that Singapore hotel occupancy has since reached 20% – materially below the trough occupancy of 34% last seen during the SARS period (May-03).

Assuming room rates stay unchanged in Mar-20, we estimate an unprecedented RevPAR decline of 76% for the month.

Murky outlook for Singapore hospitality in wake of Covid-19: Operational headwinds expected for the Singapore hotel industry, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has more recently brought about border closures in Singapore (announced March 22).

Hospitality is the worst-hit asset class from the pandemic in the March 26 relief measures announced during Singapore’s Supplementary Budget 2020.

A SPECIAL committee of directors has been set up with a focus on “safeguarding value for and protecting the interests of” Eagle Hospitality Trust’s (EHT) stapled security holders.

The five-member committee comprises all of EHT’s independent directors and the managers’ chief executive officer. They are Carl Gabriel Florian Stubbe (who will chair the special committee), Davy Lau, Tarun Kataria, Kelvin Tan Wee Peng and Salvatore Takoushian.

They will oversee matters relating to the strategic review and the voluntary trading suspension announced last week, EHT’s managers said on Wednesday.

THE Covid-19 outbreak and economic slowdown have started to bite; the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s flash estimates for the first quarter shows its benchmark overall private home price index shrank 1.2 per cent over the previous quarter.

The drop followed three consecutive quarter-on-quarter gains. Year on year, the index is up 2.2 per cent.

Analysts expect private home prices to continue heading south, to the tune of up to 8 per cent for the whole year. However, they are not predicting a steep fall like the 24.9 per cent slide over four quarters during the Global Financial Crisis.

THE recent selldown in Singapore real estate investment trusts (S-Reits) has been toughest on hospitality Reits but has left the data centre, industrial and healthcare-related Reits relatively unscathed.

Analysts see some bargains emerging but add that risks remain high and valuations are still above historical lows.

For the first quarter of this year, the FTSE ST Reit index has returned -24 per cent. Keppel DC Reit is the only S-Reit to have generated positive returns. Its outperformance parallels what is happening in the US, where data centre Reits are also trading at a premium to their peers.

SPH Reit on Wednesday announced that it would distribute just 0.30 Singapore cent per unit for its second quarter ended Feb 29, 2020.

This represents a 78.7 per cent year-on-year decline in its distribution per unit, from 1.41 cents a year ago.

The decline comes in spite of a 23.3 per cent increase in net property income (NPI), to S$56.5 million from S$45.9 million in the same period last year.

SINGAPORE Press Holdings (SPH) is allowing students living in its purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) properties in the United Kingdom to leave their tenancies early for the academic year 2019/20 (AY19/20), the group said in a statement on Wednesday.

This comes as SPH, which publishes The Business Times, said it “recognises the impact Covid-19 situation has on students’ study plans and their finances”.

The UK had ordered a three-week lockdown last week to tackle the spread of Covid-19. The move led to all universities moving to online teaching for the remainder of AY19/20.

MAINBOARD-LISTED housing operator Centurion Corp will be holding off redevelopment plans for its workers’ dormitory at Toh Guan after the site was declared a new Covid-19 cluster on Tuesday.

The reconstruction of an existing block at its Westlite Toh Guan facility into an eight-storey dormitory and industrial training centre was slated for April 2020.

But the chief executive of Centurion Kong Chee Min told The Business Times on Wednesday that the company will “delay implementation of the asset enhancement initiative (AEI) until the Covid-19 situation in Singapore normalises”.

PROPERTY group OUE has joined a string of landlords in Singapore offering rental reliefs to tenants amid poor business brought on by the novel coronavirus outbreak.

OUE and the manager of OUE Commercial Real Estate Investment Trust (OUE C-Reit) on Wednesday said retail tenants of Downtown Gallery, Mandarin Gallery, OUE Bayfront, OUE Link and OUE Tower will receive a rent reduction of between 15 per cent and 25 per cent, which will be reviewed monthly.

The mainboard-listed company said it will also pass on all property tax rebates from the government to tenants in full.

LAKESIDE shopping centre, located just outside of London, is a mecca of consumerism. It’s situated in the county of Essex, which loves shopping so much that a reality TV show captures the exploits of its glamorous, bauble-buying residents.

But since last week, the mall has been open for only essential purchases, in line with government guidance.

Its owner Intu Properties said last Thursday that it had collected just 29 per cent of the rent due from its tenants there and around the country. At the same time last year, it had received 77 per cent of the amount due.

HOUSING and Development Board (HDB) resale prices were flat in the first three months of 2020 amid the Covid-19 outbreak, compared with the last quarter of 2019.

The resale price index was 131.5, the same level as in the last quarter of 2019, according to the latest HDB flash estimates released on Wednesday.

The prices were flat after two consecutive quarters of increase in 2019. The final figures, with more detailed public housing data, will be released on April 24.

CLOSING day arrived for two Manhattan condos that brokers Jacky Teplitzky and Barak Dunayer had listed for sale – and that, in the age of the coronavirus, was a problem.

The process, usually an easy glide toward the finish line, is fraught with human interaction as agents, buyers and lawyers all walk through the unit for one final look before the paperwork gets signed.

So in an instant, the veteran brokers at Douglas Elliman Real Estate became amateur movie directors, with Mr Dunayer going alone into each apartment, summoning a group Zoom call and starting his show for a live audience.

AUSTRALIAN home prices extended gains in March, although conditions are expected to cool as the coronavirus pandemic causes widespread economic disruption and hits household confidence.

Figures from consultancy CoreLogic on Wednesday showed home prices across Australia’s capital cities climbed 0.7 per cent in March, the lowest monthly rise since the property market turned around in July last year. Home values are up 8.9 per cent from a year ago.

Sydney clocked a monthly gain of 1.1 per cent, taking its annual rise to 13 per cent, while Melbourne was up 0.4 per cent for the month and 12 per cent higher on a year-on-year basis.

Comparative Market Analysis

District 11 is one of the most stable areas in Singapore in terms of capital gain. With a centralized location, plenty of amenities on offer and known as an exclusive premium estate, property prices have steadily increased over the years.

Even though recent years have not seen a sharp spike in capital gain numbers, its stability is highly valued by investors who want safe and secure housing options.

This could change positively in the near future. According to URA’s masterplan, District 11 will soon be the proud home of a sprawling integrated health care facility that covers 600,000 square meters.

Coupled with improvements in transport options and commercial developments, Peak Residence can be one of the properties that see a major boost in capital gain figures a few years down the road.

The truth is that District 11 properties are not cheap. However, they’re worth every penny.

As the saying goes: price is what you pay, value is what you get.

Living in a luxurious central neighborhood has its advantages. Close proximity to town, amenities aplenty, quality lifestyle, just to name a few.

Peak Residence can potentially offer even greater value than other District 11 properties. This is mainly due to timing.

Peak Residence is projected to TOP within the next 3-5 years. This timeline coincides with the estimated conclusion of District 11’s development (as explained in the previous section).

Which means that the price buyers pay today, is very likely to be a drop in the ocean compared to Peak Residence’s future value.

Peak Residence Rental Overview

District 11 properties are a favorite among investors, no matter if they’re looking to profit from capital gain or rental yield.

While capital gain figures have been stable and steady, rental yield has been performing better than most areas of Singapore.

The key to District 11’s attraction as a rental option is due to its central location. More importantly, it offers a more peaceful and quiet environment compared to other central areas.

As we all know, tenants value privacy. That’s why District 11 is such a popular rental option.

Peak Residence is likely to continue District 11’s proud tradition as a rental favorite, making it a very good purchase for investment purposes.

Midtown Modern comparative market analysis

There may not be a whole lot of residential properties in District 7. However, this scarcity trend is actually working in their favor.

Due to an increasing demand for centralized properties which offer convenience and a quality lifestyle, sales volume for District 7 properties have shot up in recent years.

With not a whole lot of choices, the current properties in the area are enjoying intense attention from buyers.

When Midtown Modern at Tan Quee Lan Street is added to the mix, it has the potential to surpass other District 7 properties in terms of sales transactions.

This is because of its mixed use development status which offers even greater convenience, and a slightly better location that its counterparts.

Which means that interested buyers should act fast and secure their preferred units before the likely buying frenzy.

Midtown Modern rental volume comparison

As mentioned above, District 7 properties are high in-demand now due to its close-to-town location and promise of an idyllic lifestyle.

This has led to a surge in rental transactions, especially from working professionals looking for homes close to CBD, with a host of amenities nearby.

Midtown Modern at Tan Quee Lan Street is likely to enhance this trend, especially when the Beach Road/Ophir/Rochor corridor (part of the URA’s masterplan) is developed.

This will create even more jobs in the area, naturally leading to more rental demand.

Midtown Modern rental comparison (per square feet)

Experts have predicted that District 7 will soon become Singapore’s leading residential area. This is reflected in the rental income enjoyed by current landlords.

While a few other areas still command higher rental fees, District 7 is fast catching up and could soon overtake its “competitors”.

The good news is that the developments in District 7 are far from complete. As the area progresses year after year, landlords can command higher rental fees and still have no lack of potential tenants.

This is why tMidtown Modern at Tan Quee Lan Street can be a sensible investment for long-term rental income.
