Mapletree Commercial Trust - Acquisition Priced In


3Q20 ahead of MKE estimate




Better portfolio performance, lift from MBC II

  • Mapletree Commercial Trust's 3Q20 revenue and NPI jumped 16.7% y-o-y and 17.6% y-o-y with the addition of MBC II (from 1 Nov 2019) and higher contribution across all properties, except Mapletree Anson (revenue and NPI down 1.7% y-o-y and 1.0% y-o-y).
  • Excluding MBC II, Mapletree Commercial Trust’s existing assets delivered 3.5% y-o-y and 3.9% y-o-y growth in revenue and NPI. Its portfolio occupancy improved from 96.1% to 98.3%, helped by MBC I (up from 98.9% to 99.7%) and backfilling at Mapletree Anson (from 75.1% to 97.0%).
  • Committed occupancies remain high at 90.6%-100.0% as of end-Dec 2019. Rental reversion was at +6.7% for its retail assets (VivoCity), from +6.8% in 2Q20, and at +0.7% for its office/ business parks.


Steady performance at Vivocity

  • VivoCity’s revenue and NPI increased 2.3% y-o-y and 2.7% y-o-y, even as shopper traffic and tenant sales fell 2.2% y-o-y and 0.5% y-o-y. We see stronger sales growth momentum in the coming quarters as contributions from grocer NTUC Fairprice and new F&B tenancies gain traction. We expect mid-single digit reversions for the mall for FY20-21E.


Low deal visibility

  • Following its MBC II deal, its low 33.4% leverage and SGD1.9b in debt headroom should support further opportunities from its 1.8m sf NLA sponsor pipeline. But acquisitions are unlikely in the short term, in our view.
