Sasseur REIT - Recovery Underway


2Q20 in line, maintain BUY

  • Sasseur REIT (SGX:CRPU)’s DPU recovered strongly in 2Q20 at +13.3% q-o-q, driven by a 10.8% q-o-q increase in its EMA rental income. The results were in line with ours and street’s estimates. We expect sales growth to gain traction in the seasonally-stronger 2H against improving occupancies, and supported by its Sep-anniversary sales events.
  • We see catalysts from better-than-expected portfolio sales and contributions from potential acquisitions, backed by a visible pipeline and SGD387m debt headroom.
  • We maintain our forecasts and DDM-based SGD0.95 Target Price (COE: 9.7%, LTG: 3.0%). BUY.



Portfolio sales up 56.3% q-o-q

  • Portfolio sales fell 18.6% y-o-y but jumped 56.3% q-o-q after the operational disruptions in 1Q20, with a 7-week closure of its four malls following the COVID-19 outbreak. Portfolio occupancy dipped q-o-q from 94.6% to 93.6% with weaker occupancy at Bishan (down from 86.5% to 84.2%) due to ongoing tenant mix adjustments, which should trend back to 90% in 3Q20.
  • Consumption remains strong; management shared that while purchases at its outlets have fallen from RMB800-1,000 per item to RMB600-700 post-reopening, shopper transactions have actually risen.


AEIs at Chongqing and Hefei set to lift yields

  • AEIs planned for its Hefei and Chongqing Outlets are underway, and on track to complete in 1Q21 and 2Q21 respectively. Chongqing’s efficiency is expected to improve following a reconfiguration of its retail units and floor plates. At Hefei, the conversion of its traffic driveway into a pedestrian walkway and the higher concentration of international sports brands should help lift both shopper traffic and tenant sales.
  • Fashion, sports and international brands were 56.3% of its NLA and 76.9% of revenue contributions as of end-Jun 2020 and are expected to grow.
