A number of REITs have the ability to thrive in current market conditions and thereafter. Not only do they hold assets that will remain in strong demand, but they have focus and transparency. The leases and underlying rents are structured in a manner to provide long visibility, growth and security. Hardman & Co defined an investment universe of REITs that we considered provided security and “safer harbours”. We introduced this universe with our report published in March 2019: “Secure income” REITs – Safe Harbour Available. Here, we take forward the investment case and story. We point to six REITs, in particular, where we believe the risk/reward is the most attractive.

There has been much comment on the fact that equity markets in the US and Europe have been shrinking for some years now, certainly in terms of the number of quoted companies, if not in total market capitalisation (MCap). This paper has been written with the assistance of the Quoted Companies Alliance (QCA) and focuses on the evidence for such in the London market and, in particular, that for smaller and midcap companies. It assesses that evidence and considers explanations. Finally, we ask why it matters, and assuming that it does, what practical steps can be taken to reverse the trend. Successful public markets have been a key part of the United Kingdom’s economic success for generations, even centuries, and we should not allow them to wither on the vine.

Commercial traction is improving, medium-term financial issues have now been addressed, and the refocusing and re-orientating of the business with a major costsaving programme is progressing well. The long-term risk/reward balance remains favourable, we believe. The markets, though, await clear evidence that the new management team is delivering on its revenue objectives.

Treatt has once again delivered an exceptional performance in the first four months of FY21, with strong momentum across multiple categories contributing to growth. Operating margins have benefited from the improved product mix as Treatt continues to move up the value chain and partners with its customers to develop new products. Despite only being four months into the new financial year, the board is cautiously optimistic about continued growth and exceeding current market expectations. We raise our sales forecasts by 7–10% over the next three years and our operating profit and earnings forecasts by 20–32%. Our fair value also moves up to 870p.

AGM’s prelims confirm a solid year of progress with customer engagement and technology development continuing despite the challenges of COVID from early 2020. The results are in line with expectations, with the benefits of last year’s cost realignment being seen in reduced losses and effective cash management. The market opportunity remains significant, as reflected by continued growth in the pipeline. Commercial highlights include the promising partnership with Blocksil, which should support revenue growth over coming periods, as should the recent expansion of the distribution network.

Applied Graphene Material’s (AGM’s) FY20 results show the beneficial impact of management’s decision in October 2019 to focus on dispersion and application technology to better support product development with those customers presenting the nearest-term revenue opportunities. Revenues increased by 66% year-on-year in FY20 to £83k and adjusted EBITDA losses narrowed by £1.5m to £3.1m. With three new customer products launched in FY20 and three launched so far in FY21, progress looks set to continue.

Treatt has performed well during FY20 despite the pandemic. There was strong momentum across the tea, health & wellness, and fruit & vegetables categories, and citrus markets recovered as expected. The strong growth across the non-citrus segments is resulting in a slightly reduced dependence on citrus (now 50% of sales). The UK relocation was slowed down as a result of the first lockdown, but the building work is now complete and the move will begin in mid-2021. While management report a strong start to the new financial year, the outlook is understandably uncertain: demand is not expected to return to normal levels before the end of FY21 or into FY22, though management is confident the business is in the best possible shape to face the uncertainty. The FY20 results demonstrate this, with a good cash performance and a 9% increase in dividends implying management’s confidence in the year ahead.
