Investment summary

Palace Capital’s (PCA) FY21 results were robust, with a clear improvement in the second half. With a good level of rent collection continuing, Q421 DPS was increased by 20%, to a level that management hopes to at least maintain through FY22. Importantly, the flagship Hudson Quarter (HQ) development in York completed in April, on budget. We expect HQ to be a significant driver of forecast increasing returns and deleveraging.

Industry outlook

The commercial property market is cyclical, historically exhibiting substantial swings in capital values through cycles while income returns have been more stable. The pandemic and Brexit have created significant economic and market uncertainty during the past year, but GDP is forecast to rebound strongly as the lockdown eases and interest rates remain low maintain a significant commercial property yield premium.
