Ingenuity Property shares

Background of Ingenuity

  • Ingenuity Property Investments is a property investment company focused on the purchase, development and redevelopment of properties, mainly in the Western Cape. The company has a listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and is regarded as a boutique, niche property stock to buy.

  • The company entered into Gauteng in 2015 with the acquisition of 167 Rivonia Road in Sandton. The portfolio has a total value of R4.2 billion and is segmented into office, retail, gym, parking, light industrial and other properties, encompassing 34 properties and 174 000m2 of gross lettable area. Most of the properties command prime locations in the Cape Town CBD, southern suburbs, Tyger Valley, Century City and Tokai.

  • Ingenuity has a JSE market cap of R 1 billion, and Ingenuity Property share price has been fairly stagnant since 2013 due to challenging trade conditions in South Africa.

Ingenuity Shares Growth Driver

  • Over the past several years, Ingenuity has significantly expanded its asset base through strategic acquisitions and successful development initiatives. The group increased its total asset base by more than R500 million in the 2015 financial year, managing to buy eight new properties and completing several development projects.

  • The trend of growth continued in the first six months of the 2016 financial year, with the major move being the R650 million acquisition of the Great Westerford office property in Rondebosch, which comprises more than 30 000m2 GLA. Despite tough market conditions and a dampened Ingenuity Property share price, the company still reported good performance in its latest interim results. Profits stood at R62 million for the six months ended February 2016, with net property income increasing by 22% to R116 million due to properties acquired, completed developments and rental escalations. Headline earnings per share remained flat at 2.2 cents, primarily due to an increase in capital gains tax and increases in the cost of funding.

Ingenuity Investor Tip

  • Ingenuity’s results for the first half of 2016 indicate that the company will record slightly dampened profits compared to the R267 million in the 2015 financial year. The company has put significant attention into growing its portfolio by making moves to buy new properties, while putting underperforming properties up for sale. The cost of acquisitions negatively impacted the company’s financial performance, but are forecast to yield profits in the coming years. Ingenuity also has an impressive
    development pipeline including major projects such as 117 Strand Street, a mixed use residential/office scheme which is forecast to have a value of R550 million when completed. The company’s largest development scheme is The Modern, a high-rise building which will comprise 33 000 m2 of premium grade office space and a five-star hotel. The development has an anticipated capital value of more than R1.1 billion.

  • The live online JSE stocks chart shows that Ingenuity Property share price has been flat over the past few years, but with various developments and acquisitions coming to maturity, the share price may well experience a boost soon. Ingenuity Property shares could therefore prove to be one of the more profitable property stocks for investors to buy.
