EPRA Best Practice Recommendations

 

Following recent discussions with investors, the Board of Directors has reviewed the disclosure of EPRA performance measures and, in-line with best practice guidance, the Group will in its future reporting provide both an EPRA "Topped-up" Net Initial Yield and an EPRA Net Initial Yield. The inclusion of both performance measures, and the difference between them in regards to rent free periods, helps investors to compare like-with-like EPRA Net Initial Yields irrespective of the temporary effect of any lease incentives.

 

The Group on occasion and as is commonplace in the market, provides rent free periods on commercial terms to support newly-opened care homes. Following its review of its EPRA performance measures, the Group has become aware of some temporary inconsistencies in its disclosure of past EPRA Net Initial Yields in regards to these rent free periods and hence provides a full break down of the respective numbers below since it started reporting EPRA measures:

The Group's two assets at Cirencester and Camberley, which were acquired on 29 June 2018, are the only assets in the portfolio currently with rent-free periods. As these unwind, assuming no other changes including inter alia the portfolio valuation or rental profile, the EPRA yield profiles for the portfolio will be as follows:

Glossary of Terms

EPRA Net Initial Yield - annualised rental income based on the cash rents passing at the balance sheet date, less non-recoverable property operating expenses, divided by the market value of the property, increased with (estimated) purchasers' costs. EPRA's purpose is to provide a comparable measure around Europe for portfolio valuations.

EPRA Topped-up Net Initial Yield - Incorporates an adjustment to the EPRA Net Initial Yield in respect of the expiration of rent-free periods (or other unexpired lease incentives).

 

 

* In line with stated methodology, the calculation of the EPRA Yields excludes assets where construction is in progress and hence the measures above do not include the value of or interest income associated with the Group's assets which are currently being forward funded.
