Information Is Accurate Up To Oct 2023

Business Description

Starhill Global REIT is a Retail REIT that was listed in 2005 and owns a total of 9 properties.

What I Like About Starhill Global REIT

  • Historically high levels of dividend yield (Average: 6.51%) – largely due to lower underlying lease expiry and the “unattractiveness” of the REIT.

  • Management is very conservative with their debt management and often has a high degree of hedged borrowings

What I Do Not Like About Starhill Global REIT

  • Poor management which resulted in regular capital destruction

  • Poor track record in foreign property investments

  • Portfolio is not diversified & largely concentrated in Ngee Ann City & Wisma Atria (Fig 10)

  • Lease expiry of flagship properties is relatively lower as compared to other retail REITs (Ngee Ann City – 2072 Wisma Atria – 2061)

Updates From Recent Performance (FY 2022/2023)

General Comments:

  • The market has already priced in the headwinds for Starhill Global REIT’s foreign property and the price is now trading at a heavy discount from book value.

Positive Headwinds:

  • Majority of the debt that is due for refinancing comes in 2025 and beyond of which interest rates are expected to start trending downwards.

Negative Headwinds:

  • Further deterioration in foreign property values is to be expected given a stronger Singapore Dollar and a global economic slowdown.
