Mindspace Business Parks is coming up with an IPO in the form of Real Estate Investment Trust. This would be the second REIT to be listed in India after Embassy Park got listed in 2019. The issue price of Embassy was 300 and as on 20.07.2020,it is trading at 344. Moreover, it has also paid regular dividend of total Rs. 8.12 till date from listing. So overall returns are quite good. As per SEBI rule, all the InviT has to distribute 90% of their net income to all the eligible shareholders.

REIT concept is very easy to understand.
Suppose, there is a very famous place near by your house where if mall is constructed, it will give huge footfalls and can be a good source of earning for developer. Now you also want to invest in this mall and want to earn a share of revenue which will come once this mall becomes operational. Now, if you simply go the builder and say, look i want to invest 1Lakh in your project, there is 100% chance that he will not take your investment because there is no structure involved here.

So, what is the solution?

The solution is REIT.

REIT will collect money from the shareholders, invest in the real estate projects, develop it and start earning rental income from it. In REITs, 90% of the rental income left after deducting all the operational expenses to manage trust will be distributed among shareholders. A REIT gives investors, big or small, the golden opportunity to hold shares of the real estate investment trust by investing in it, thereby benefiting them through good returns on the investment.

3 Important Factors to look in REIT as an investor.
1. CAGR growth in the rental income over the years.

As per RHP, rentals in the Top Six Indian Markets have grown at a CAGR of 5.0% between 2014 and Q1 2020, which is pretty decent looking at the problems faced by real estate.

2. Vacancy level of the property. It is the difference between the supply of units and the demand for units.

The vacancy level which was around 15% in 2015 has been reduced to 10.2% in Q1FY20. This shows that the mismatch between supply and demand is reducing.

3. Appreciation in the price of the property.

40% of Mindspace property concentrated in Hyderabad and the real estate market of Hyderabad is growing well. So this will augur well in the future.

Recommendation on Mindspace Business Parks REIT IPO:

Review and Recommendation of InvestorZone are 5/10. 1. Mindspace REIT's current NAV as on 31.03.2020 stands at 319.5 per share. The issue price is available at a discount of 15% to this NAV. 2. The minimum lot size is Rs. 54800 (200 lot size * 274). So this might be the issue for retail investors. 3. Mindspace ~40% property in Hyderabad augur well for the company. The real estate market of Hyderabad is doing well. And property prices aren't appreciated much as compared to other property markets like Delhi or Mumbai. So price appreciation scope is available for the Mindspace. 4. With Covid-19 and WFH announced by many IT companies, we may see a fall in demand for office space of these REITs. But on the contrary, post-covid, the better and good hygiene buildings will come in demand. Therefore, the next 6 months will tell the actual picture of the demands for these REITs. 5. As an investor, it is a good opportunity to invest in an alternate segment of the commercial Real estate through REIT as 90% of the cash flow has to be distributed among unitholders. So, dual advantage, dividend, and price appreciation.
