Atlantic Leaf Shares Growth Driver
Atlantic Leaf’s investments are mainly held through subsidiaries in various jurisdictions which make commercial sense from tax or funding perspectives. Each new investment opportunity is evaluated by considering the following criteria: quality, location and durability of assets;
core sustainable income flows, existing and projected occupancy rates and tenant covenant strength;
opportunities for asset enhancement through active management;
rental yield spread relative to fixed rate borrowing costs and key valuation and financing metrics; and
proper evaluation of a multitude of risk factors, including security of income, tenant covenants, residual values, the physical condition of properties, loan-to-value and interest covenants and maturity profiles in respect of leveraged purchases.
This thorough evaluation process has allowed Atlantic Leaf to make sound investments throughout its history. The experienced management team of the youthful company has been happy with financial performance in the first few years, and is targeting a number of key acquisitions. Despite aggressive pricing and increasing demand which has pushed property prices higher in the UK, Atlantic Leaf has widened its investment target regions to Western Europe and Australia, whilst broadening shareholder base and commencing dividends distribution.
Atlantic Leaf Group Investor Tip
Atlantic Leaf recently announced that it plans to move to the main board of the JSE in 2016, which could attract more institutional investors and raise funding for higher-quality assets. The group is on a capital fund raising drive which has gained good success, which has in turn established confidence amongst South African property investors. New capital will be used to purchase properties worth R 3.4 billion, allowing Atlantic Leaf to move onto the JSE’s main board.
Atlantic Leaf share prices have taken a hit due to intense competition in the UK listed property market. Investors who buy Atlantic Leaf shares should however be rewarded by being patient, as the shares offer a good rand hedge option and an opportunity for upside as they grow.
