• BUY, TP S$1.44 maintained
Earnings uptrend remains intact. At DPU growth of c.5% CAGR over FY14F-16F, Mapletree Industrial Trust (MINT) is expected to deliver one of the strongest earnings growths among peers. Growth is largely organically driven from positive rental renewals, as its portfolio of under-rented flatted factories progressively marks up its rents to current market levels. Based on our understanding, expiring rents are still at c.10% below market transaction levels, which implies that reversionary trend is expected to be strong.
Completions of development projects to contribute over 2014-2015. MINT has also committed c.S$198m in various built-to-suit projects and asset enhancement works - Kulicke & Soffa (72% precommitted), Equinix (100% committed) and Toa Payoh North 1 (20% pre-committed), which when completed over the coming quarters, will contribute positively to earnings. Coupled with a steady organic growth profile, these initiatives are likely to more than compensate for the loss in income from the relocation of Credit Suisse and Lucasfilms at The Signature (c.2% of revenues).
BUY maintained, TP S$1.44. BUY maintained, TP S$1.44. We like MINT for its growing and attractive FY14-16F yields of 7.6%-8.3%, which we believe carry minimal risks at this point.
