Although key elements of Custodian REIT’s (CREI’s) FY21 results had been previously disclosed, the detailed annual report includes additional details on its robust FY21 performance and prospects. In H221 rent collection strengthened, DPS increased and asset values recovered, delivering positive total returns. We expect these trends to carry over into the current year, with continuing occupier demand improving occupancy. A strong balance sheet provides support for potential accretive acquisitions

Custodian REIT (CREI) generated a 2.5% NAV total return in Q421, taking the H221 total to 4.9% and FY21 to a positive 0.9% despite pandemic-driven weakness earlier in the year. H221 returns were supported by improving rent collection, delivering increased DPS (including a fifth interim payment), and positive net valuation gains, primarily driven by a strong (49%) industrial asset weighting and asset management initiatives.
Custodian REIT has demonstrated a high level of operational resilience through the Covid crisis in terms of absolute performance and on a relative basis compared with the UK commercial real estate sector. This is beginning to be reflected in the share price which has gained 16% year-to-date, but wh

Amidst challenging market conditions, Custodian REIT (CREI) declared a Q121 DPS 0.95p, 27% ahead of the minimum level indicated for each of the first two quarters of FY21, and fully covered by net cash receipts. With robust rent collection and the lockdown easing, we have reinstated our estimates and look for the quarterly DPS run rate to increase in H221.
In the year to 31 March 2020 (FY20), Custodian REIT (CREI) delivered on its recurring income targets, supporting fully covered DPS of 6.65p (+1.5%) and a positive total return despite increased year-end pressure on valuations from COVID-19. The company entered this challenging environment with a diversified portfolio, good levels of occupancy and a strong and liquid balance sheet. Current quarterly DPS annualises at 3.0p, a yield of 3.4%, with upside potential later in the year from improving co
