Cambridge Industrial Trust: 4Q FY2011.

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Unit price of Cambridge Industrial Trust has been creeping upwards, probably in anticipation of the Trust going CD.

Total assets under management exceed $1b with recent revaluation of properties. This resulted in a lower gearing level apart from boosting NTA/unit to 62c. Year on year, gearing ratio has fallen from 34.7% to 33.1%. The REIT has no borrowings due until June 2014.

Interest cover ratio: 5.0x
Average land lease remaining: 36 years.

DPU increased quarter on quarter from 1.082c to 1.118c, representing an increase of 3.33%. Annualised, the distribution yield at 50c per unit is 8.94%.

The REIT will go XD on 6 February and the income distribution is payable on 29 February.
