Australia’s largest listed pure-play industrial fund, Centuria Industrial REIT (ASX: CIP), today announced its total portfolio value increased within the March quarter by $192million1 to $2.6billion4 on a like for like book value basis.
Of its 61 industrial assets, 56 were independently valued5 resulting in healthy increases in capital values and overall capitalisation rate compression across the portfolio, which is evident from recent market transactions.
During FY21 to date, CIP transacted $757million worth of industrial assets, which alone generated a $64million uplift towards its total portfolio revaluation gain.
The weighted average capitalisation rate (WACR) tightened 46 basis points from 5.42% to 4.96%2.
Subsequently, proforma Net Tangible Assets (NTA) increased from $2.99 to $3.32 per unit3.
Jesse Curtis, CIP Fund Manager, commented, “Currently, Australia’s industrial property market is experiencing a substantial re-rate, attracting significant investment demand from both domestic and international capital.
“Major transactions in the market continue to show capitalisation compression, complemented by strong tenant demand from e-commerce and a scarcity of investment grade assets.”
Key valuation movements include:
|Property||Location||Revaluation Increase||Capitalisation Rate Compression||Industrial submarket|
|Telstra Data Centre||Clayton VIC||$28.3m||50.0 bps||Data Centres|
|46 Robinson Road East||Virginia QLD||$20.0m||37.5 bps||Manufacturing|
|67-69 Mandoon Road||Girraween NSW||$11.8m||75.0 bps||Cold Storage|
|75 Owen Street||Glendenning NSW||$3.4m||75.0 bps||Distribution Centre|
The CIP portfolio has a healthy 9.8 year Weighted Average Lease Expiry (WALE) and a 97.7% occupancy6.
Curtis concluded, “With evidence of continued major transactions in the industrial sector expected, CIP’s is well positioned to be a major beneficiary of the strong performing Australian industrial market.”
