Background of Intu Properties

  • Intu Properties is a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) which has become one of the United Kingdom’s biggest property companies and is listed on the London Stock Exchange. Intu shares are also available to buy through a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and Intu share price has achieved a strong performance in South Africa since listing in 1999. Intu Properties’ portfolio largely focuses on shopping centre management and development. Asset value at the end of 2015 stood at £9.6 billion, which includes 6 super-regional shopping centers and 10 in-town shopping centers in the UK, as well as two shopping centers in Spain.

  • The group’s latest annual financial data was impressive, with the company netting £518 million in profits, an 8% increase in net rental income and a 7% per share return on Intu shares. Intu’s various retail shops and restaurants attract some 400 million shopper visits per year.

Intu Properties Shares Growth Driver

  • Intu has a four-pronged strategy which is the basis for its current and future growth. The company focuses on optimizing asset performance to deliver attractive long-term returns from stable income streams and capital appreciation. This active asset management was responsible for returning like-for-like net rental income to profitability in 2015. 261 new long term leases were signed at a value of £46 million, whilst overall rental occupancy and retailer sales climbed by 1% (to 96%) and 2% respectively.

  • Intu share price growth has also been attributed to extending and enhancing existing locations through refurbishments, expansions and redevelopments in the UK, while placing mature properties up for sale. Marketing also received considerable attention, with website visits increasing by 30%, marketing database increasing to over 2 million subscribers and the company becoming involved in nationwide multichannel events with global brands like MasterCard and 20th Century Fox.

  • Intu expects that its diversification into Spain will continue to boost the company’s profits and Intu share price, with the two projects there already delivering returns and several new projects in the pipeline.

Intu Properties Group Investor Tip

  • The continued recovery of the UK economy has boded well for Intu Properties, and its shopping centre dominant portfolio in the region has seen an improvement on the back of positive retail indicators. This conducive economic environment has shown positive GDP growth and an increase in consumer confidence and non-food sales for over two years. The increasing consumer confidence is leading to improved retailer demand to buy into Intu’s centers at a time when quality retail space is very limited. This, together with increasing investor interest for prime regional shopping centres and the diversification into Spain, should result in a spike in Intu share price, making Intu shares a savvy purchase today. The shares a particularly good buy for South African investors who don’t want to risk the huge volatility in the local economy at present.
