Mapletree Industrial Trust - Growth With Data Add


Strong 4Q22, lowering DPUs forecast

  • Mapletree Industrial Trust (SGX:ME8U) delivered a strong 4Q22, as DPU rose ~6% y-o-y, driven by rising US data centre contributions, now at ~51% of AUM. FY22 DPU of 13.80cts, at +10% y-o-y, was ahead of consensus and our estimates.
  • Recovering industrial rents and improving DPU visibility from higher data centre tenancies suggest sound fundamentals.
  • Growth headwinds from inflationary pressures and rising interest rates are partly offset by retained capital distributions, and a strong balance sheet.



Singapore recovery in sight, with costs rising

  • Mapletree Industrial Trust's portfolio occupancy increased to 94.0% in 4Q22 (from 93.6% in 3Q22), with better occupancy in Singapore (from 93.7% to 94.4%), driven by flatted factories (92.0% to 93.3%), and business park buildings (83.0% to 83.3%).
  • Gross rents at S$2.13 psfpm were flat q-o-q and +3.9% y-o-y (vs +0.9% y-o-y in 3Q22), while rental reversion remained positive at +1.1% (vs +1.0%).
  • Mapletree Industrial Trust’s electricity hedges for its multi-tenanted properties are falling off at end-May 2022, and management estimates 2-3% downside to its NPI with costs expected to escalate at 2-3x.


Stable occupancy, rents for US data centres

  • US occupancy was stable at 93.3%, while its WALE remains the three assets (in San Diego, Milwaukee and Tennessee).


Strong balance sheet, DPUs cushioned by rising rates
