Investment summary

The Q422 NAV update confirmed CSH’s consistently robust financial and operational performance, in line with the board’s expectations. Reflecting this Fitch recently reaffirmed its investment grade credit rating and, alongside accretive share repurchases by the company, ‘insider’ share purchases demonstrate the confidence of the board and key members of the investment adviser team. Having now met its 5.55p FY22 DPS target (+2.8%) the new FY23 target is at least 5.70p (+2.7%). Unaudited Q422 NAV per share increased 1.4% to 110.3p (Q322: 108.8p) and including DPS paid the quarterly NAV total return was 2.7%, taking the FY22 total to 6.9%. CSH has launched initiatives to promote greater regulatory alignment and address perceived lease risks.
