Listed on AIM in 2001, Telford Homes is a London-focused residential property developer. Its portfolio includes open market sales (in multi-occupancy, including mixed-use, developments), the build-to-rent subsector (alongside investment partners) and affordable homes delivered to housing associations.

Investment summary

Telford Homes represents a pure play on London’s clear requirement for the delivery of more good-quality, new build homes. Management is continuing to orient development activities towards the more robust build to rent (BTR) subsector – including the recent announcements of two strategic partnerships – although there will be a near-term dip in earnings as the pipeline transitions, factoring in isolated delays to other projects and current market conditions. Regaining and sustaining historic profit levels would warrant a share price significantly ahead of the present valuation. FY19 results are scheduled for 29 May.

Industry outlook

Citing a chronic housing shortage, the Mayor of London’s office has a clear agenda to raise new home building rates to c 65,000 per year over the next 10 years compared to a recent average of less than a third of that level. Medium- and long-term population and household growth expectations further underpin this demand. The tenure mix is expected to continue to move towards a higher proportion of private rental homes.
