Synergy Shares Growth Driver

[info_list icon_color=”#0c0c0c” font_size_icon=”24″][info_list_item list_icon=”Defaults-line-chart”]In 2016, the group announced a strategic repositioning as a specialist high-yielding, high growth fund comprising retail, office and industrial assets. This was based on a decision to buy the entire issued share capital of Vukile, which will result in internalisation of Synergy’s asset and property management and the exchange of Synergy’s retail properties for Vukile’s portfolio of 29 high quality retail, office and industrial assets. The group also announced the acquisition of Arrowhead Properties subsidiary Cumulative, and a name change from Synergy to GemGrow Properties. Cumulative currently holds around 100 properties valued at R1.9 billion.[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_icon=”Defaults-line-chart”]The landmark deal should increase Synergy’s market cap to around R3.4 billion, with the property portfolio rising in value to around R4.4 billion. This move is part of the group’s goal to place over 90% of assets in the most defensive and preferred property sector of retail, and to increase interest and trade in Synergy shares, which have had a history of illiquidity on the JSE.[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_icon=”Defaults-line-chart”]Synergy faced a tough operating environment in 2016, with performance being challenged by increased pressure on consumers. Despite this, Synergy managed to chart a profit of R107 million, compared to a loss of R35 million in 2015. Portfolio vacancy improved from 5.6% to 4.5%, with proactive leasing reversing the upwards vacancy trend of the previous year. A unitholders enjoyed earnings of 69.75 cents per share, compared to 23.17 cents in 2015, with dividends increasing markedly.[/info_list_item][/info_list]

Synergy Group Investor Tip

[info_list icon_color=”#0c0c0c” font_size_icon=”24″][info_list_item list_icon=”Defaults-graduation-cap mortar-board”]Synergy Income Fund shares have not been an especially popular buy amongst JSE-listed property stocks, but most investment analysts agree that the bigtransactional deal on the table should benefit investors. The move will enhance Synergy’s scale and asset quality, whilst injecting the expertise of respected property company Arrowhead. Ahead of the move, Synergy Income Fund shares could well be a bargain buy at the current low Synergy Income Fund share price.[/info_list_item][/info_list]
