Income Streams

Under the Al-Hadharah Boustead REIT, plantation assets will be leased back to the vendors for a three-year renewable tenancy with a cumulative period of up to thirty years. At the end of every three years, the fixed rental will be reviewed and a new rental will be agreed between the parties. The new rental will be determined based on historical crude palm oil (CPO) prices, prevailing and expected future CPO prices, cost of production, extraction rates and yield per hectare. Hence, income sources for Al-Hadharah Boustead REIT include:

Fixed Rental

With the renewal of the Ijarah agreement effective from 1 January 2010, the fixed rental income for the second tenancy term is increased from Tenants will pay a cumulative fixed rental of approximately RM53.2 million to RM57.8 million per annum for the first tenancy term of three years. This will be payable on a bi-monthly basis.

Performance-Based Profit Sharing

In addition to a fixed rental, the Al-Hadharah Boustead REIT may enjoy an annual profit sharing of net incremental income based on a formula pegged to CPO and fresh fruit bunch (FFB) prices. This net incremental income is determined based on the actual CPO price realised for the year, above the reference price of RM2,000 per MT for the first next three years. It will be shared on a 50:50 basis between the tenants and the fund. This profit sharing payment is the first of its kind in the REIT market and may translate into more handsome dividend yields for investors.

Capital Gains

Given the development potential of some of the plantation assets, especially those located in prime locations; there is a potential upside for capital gains. The gains realised may be distributed as bonus dividends.

Dividends

The Manager has in the past distributed more than 90% of the Fund's taxable profit for the relevant year on semi-annual basis. However, the Board of Directors of the Manager may at its discretion change the percentage and frequency of the distribution to be made to the unitholders.

The source income for the dividend distribution comes from the fixed rental and performance-based profit sharing (if any). On top of this, unitholders may also enjoy a bonus dividend resulting from realised capital gains on disposal of the Fund's asset.


Future Growth

With the Boustead Group's well established and proven track record in the plantation sector since the 1900s, the Al- Hadharah Boustead REIT offers an investment opportunity spearheaded by an organisation that has strong operating cashflows complemented with a professional management team.

The Al-Hadharah Boustead REIT is unique as it features embedded growth potential. There is a planned second phase injection of plantation assets. The Group also has a total plantation portfolio in excess of RM1 billion in value which provides new opportunities for further growth.


The Al-Hadharah Boustead REIT is an attractive investment alternative. It offers investors a projected dividend yield of over 7%. This compares favourably to the average dividend yield of 3.0% for selected plantation stocks. In light of the current debt free status of the fund, the Al-Hadharah Boustead REIT affords greater flexibility in achieving enhanced growth for its unitholders.
