LXi REIT is an externally managed UK REIT investing in assets that are let on long index-linked leases to strong financial covenants across a range of sectors with defensive characteristics.

Long, upwards-only, mostly index-linked (mostly capped and collared at 2–4%) or fixed uplift leases provide significant visibility of income in the current inflationary environment although increased government bonds yields are creating a valuation headwind across the commercial real estate sector.

H123 results will be released on 24 November, the first results update since LXi’s merger with Secure Income REIT (SIR). This brought together two complementary portfolios, creating a business of substantial scale and generating immediate cost savings. The end-H123 portfolio value was £3.65bn, well diversified across sectors and tenants with a long 26-year weighted average unexpired lease term. 98% of the rent is inflation-protected or contains fixed uplifts. LTV has reduced from a pro forma post-merger 37% to 33%, in line with LXi’s aim of maintaining a medium-term LTV target of 30%. 100% of group debt is fixed or capped with a maximum cost of 4.2% and covenant headroom is significant. On a like-for-like basis, portfolio valuation was 1.4% lower, with rent growth substantially offsetting yield widening. LXi estimates EPRA NTA at end-H123 will be at least 139p per share.
