Company Overview

Business Description
BWP Trust (BWP) is a listed managed investment scheme which invests in commercial real estate throughout Australia. The majority of its properties are Bunnings Warehouse properties tenanted by Bunnings Group Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wesfarmers Limited. The BWP Trust is managed by unlisted responsible entity, BWP Management Limited.
Strategy Analysis
Being the only trust solely focusing on the bulky goods retail sub-sector, BWP seeks to provide unitholders with a secure, growing income stream underpinned by long term inflation linked leases. Properties are simple, requiring little maintenance capex. Tenant led development/extensions often occur as leases roll over. Management is becoming more active with increasing acquisitions and divestments to diversify and refine the portfolio towards higher growth areas. Exposure to non-Wesfarmers related tenants will increase, though new tenants won’t exceed 20% of income. BWP Trust reported NPAT up 52.8% to $48.83m for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $54.0m, up 9.3% from the same period last year. The increase in revenues was mainly due to growth of the property portfolio during or since the corresponding period - from acquisitions and improvements to investment properties (adding approximately $3.2m) and rent reviews (adding approximately $1.5m). Basic and Diluted EPS was 9.2 cents compared to 6.15 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $36.87m compared to $34.92m last year. The interim dividend declared was 7.00 cents compared with 6.63 cents last year. Property income for the second half of 2012/13 will include a full six months rental income the Bunnings Warehouse-anchored homemaker centre in Gladstone, Qld, acquired in September 2012.
