UOL Group

Solid execution


■ UOL is replenishing its Singapore residential launch pipeline to 818 units.

■ Active asset management should drive commercial portfolio performance.

■ We reiterate our Add rating with a higher TP of S$8.00. Replenishing Singapore development landbank UOL and its JV partners, Singapore Land Group and Kheng Leong, successfully bidded for a residential site in Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 (AMK) for S$381.4m. The site can house more than 370 condominiums spread over the 415,415 sq ft of gross floor area. Based on a land price of S$1,118 psf of floor area, we estimate the breakeven cost could be c.S$1,600- 1,650 psf. Meanwhile, sales at its ongoing projects continue to be brisk, with 159 units sold YTD Jun 21, based on URA data on 4 Jun 2021. Clavon is 83% sold and Avenue South Residences is 66.4% taken up. In terms of new launches, the 448-unit The WaterGardens at Canberra Drive is on track to be rolled out in early 3Q21. Given the present robust residential market, we expect this launch to be well-received when marketed. This will continue to extend the group’s development income visibility.

LHN Limited – Optimiser of real-estate trends


  • Work Plus Stores’ industrial space riding on the boom in e-commerce spending. Earnings growth expected to be supported by high occupancy, higher rentals and net lettable area (NLA) CAGR of 12% for next two years.
  • Demand for co-living space under Coliwoo rising, thanks to flexible lease terms, affordable rents and attractive locations. Occupancy in mid-90s. We expect LHN to add 210 residential keys by end-FY22e, at CAGR of 13%.
  • Initiate coverage with BUY and TP of S$0.54. Few direct comparables, given LHN’s diverse exposure to hospitality, industrial and logistics. Industry is trading at 19x FY21e PE. We apply a 50% discount owing to a lack of comparables and large volatility in historical PE. Historical adjusted PE averaged 32x, with a low of 4x. We peg LHN at 9.5x FY21e PE.
