  • EPRA earnings per share (“EPS”) up 36.1% to 8.3p (31 March 2022: 6.1p), and Adjusted cash EPS up 17.5% to 6.7p for the year (31 March 2022: 5.7p), primarily driven by material cost savings resulting from the merger with Secure Income REIT plc (“SIR plc”) (the “Merger”) and representing full dividend cover for the year, underpinning the Company’s progressive dividend policy
  • Sector leading EPRA cost ratio of 9.5% (31 March 2022: 15.9%) and total expense ratio of 0.9% (31 March 2022: 1.0%)
  • Dividend per share of 6.3p in respect of year (31 March 2022: 6.0p per share), representing 5% growth on the prior year
  • Portfolio independently valued at £3,356.3m (31 March 2022: £1,544.4m), reflecting a like for like change of (9.6)%. The movement reflects an outward yield shift of 90 bps to 5.4% at 31 March 2023 (31 March 2022: 4.5%), offset by 2.3% like for like rental growth5
  • EPRA NTA per share of 121.1p (31 March 2022: 142.6p), reflecting a fall of 15%, primarily driven by yield expansion across certain property sectors in response to wider economic conditions and the costs associated with the Merger, which represented less than 1% of the combined portfolio value1
  • Pro forma net loan to value (“LTV”)2 ratio of 37% (31 March 2022: 22%), with headroom to our medium-term borrowing policy cap of 40% and substantial covenant headroom on the loan facilities
  • Contractual rental increases due in the next two financial years expected to reduce LTV to 35.5% in FY24 and 33.8% in FY25, assuming no change in valuation yield. The Board remains committed to a conservative medium-term LTV target of 30%
The UK’s leading sector diversified REIT
  • During the year, LXi REIT plc merged with Secure Income REIT plc to create the UK’s leading sector-diversified, long income REIT, with a substantial, defensive and resilient portfolio
  • The scale achieved provides a strong foundation to deliver secure attractive long-dated and growing income returns and capital protection to our shareholders
  • The Group owns an inflation linked portfolio of 350 properties that are 100% occupied with an aggregate valuation of £3.4bn at 31 March 2023, contracted annual rental income of £202.2m and a WAULT to first break of 27 years
  • Assets are well diversified across a broad range of resilient sub-sectors with high barriers to entry, strong underlying property fundamentals and low starting rents, and are let on very long-term leases to tenant counterparties that have demonstrated strong performance throughout previous economic cycles
  • Properties are strategically important to the operations of our broad range of institutional-quality tenants underpinning the longevity and security of the Group’s income streams
  • Shareholders continue to benefit from the certainty provided by the Group’s fully let, highly diversified, triple-net portfolio of secure real estate assets, sector leading expense ratios and a conservative and 100% fixed or capped debt position
1 The portfolio valuation includes forward funding commitments and assets held for sale. A reconciliation between portfolio value and investment property at fair value and IFRS is included in Note 8 to the consolidated financial statements
2 Pro forma net LTV is stated after adjusting the value of investment properties (the denominator) for the acquisition price of properties that have exchanged but not completed and for costs to complete forward funded assets and net debt (the numerator) for the acquisition price of properties that have exchanged but not completed plus associated acquisition costs and for costs to complete forward funded assets
3 These are targets and not profit forecasts
