Delta Shares Growth Driver
Throughout its history, Delta has always prided itself on a high growth strategy aiming to capitalise on opportunities provided by the company’s niche position as a 100% black-managed fund. The company is primarily exposed to a defensive government office sector with low vacancies and an impressive collections process, which results in a very low risk rental stream and protects Delta Property share price. Continuing acquisitions, refurbishments and upgrades have also enhanced Delta’s position as a preferred landlord for government.
Delta experienced remarkable growth in 2015, acquiring 18 new properties and growing asset value by R 1.6 billion. Despite lower government spending due to the economic downturn, Delta managed to renew 80% of expiring leases and increase rental income by 30%. This strong performance has been largely attributed to Delta’s defensive sovereign portfolio, which makes it well positioned to withstand economic headwinds.
