  3. 3. ИINFRASTRUCTURE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT <br />Why invest with “IFM” in student accommodation?<br />Sector returns: Student Accommodation (“the Sector”) has provided robust investment returns and continues to perform well despite the current poor economic climate and is expected to continue to do so<br />Demand: The demand for student accommodation outstrips supply and will remain so for the foreseeable future<br />Universities responsibility: To provide a minimum amount of student accommodation whilst being under ever increasing budgetary constraints<br />University’s requirement: Typically want bespoke solutions and to work with trusted and proven “partners”, such as IFM. Universities’ are reluctant based on experience to work with “private landlords”<br />Bespoke solutions: IFM has a strong record in delivering bespoke solutions based on sourcing and developing student accommodation in “partnership” with UK universities<br />Investor returns: IFM’s business model provides attractive solutions for universities whilst driving down development risk and delivering attractive returns <br />Reputation: IFM has an excellent Sector reputation and as a consequence has demonstrable access to an extensive pipeline of student accommodation projects upon which the Fund will be able to leverage.<br />3<br />

  9. 9. И INFRASTRUCTURE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT <br />Driving fund returns<br />Development Returns: The average net “Yield on Cost” of IFM pipeline projectsis c. 6.0% to 7.5% compared to exit yields at today’s level of 5.25% to 6.25%. Effectively, it is cheaper to build than buy, this arbitrage drives development return.<br />Income Returns: Interest coverage ratios to meet lender requirements on completion means income returns are low, however, these grow over time as RPI increases rent (source: IFM business model).<br />Reversionary Returns: Low exit yields compared to the Yield on Cost, combined with rental growth through RPI and market rental growth, drive values up over the medium term (five-to-six years) resulting in high equity returns – multiples of 1.6x to 2.0x .<br />Return enhancement: largely driven by reversionary value , however, as the increasing impact of RPI on the base rent occurs, distributable income grows. The Fund Cash Flow Model makes based on conservative assumptions no allowance for yield compression, were this to occur then returns would be much stronger. <br />9<br />

  13. 13. И INFRASTRUCTURE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT <br />Case study - 1<br />Goswell Road, London EC1<br />IFM was one of the first property companies to provide bespoke post-graduate accommodation in central London, with its Willen House, Bath Street project. The scheme provides 157 rooms and various other ancillary areas for students of the nearby Cass Business school, City University. <br />13<br />
  14. 14. ИINFRASTRUCTURE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT <br />Case study- 2<br />Willen House, Bath Street<br />The completed scheme is to be let directly to students (i.e. without University under-writing). The senior loan was provided by Barclays, assuming a 70% LTV and projected amortisation over 22 years. The equity / subordinate debt has been provided jointly by IFM and Derwent, a large housing association with over 4000 student beds under management. <br />14<br />
  15. 15. И INFRASTRUCTURE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT <br />Conclusion<br />Opportunity: to enter a strong performing segment of the real estate sector, where nomination agreements or leases help provide reduced risk are combined with strong returns.<br />Portfolio: will contain high spec student accommodation developed in partnership with the Universities at competitive rents in strong locations.<br />Returns: Strong rental growth and increasing Investor interest will drive values beyond the planned performance levels of the base case cash flow.<br />Pipeline and established relationships: can be demonstrate with Universities, construction companies, banks and third party advisers – these often lead to new opportunities <br />IFM: is well placed to deliver investors a portfolio of newly developed student accommodation facilities across the UK over the next 24-months and then manage them through the life of the Fund with capital growth of between 1.6x and 2.0x.<br />15<br />
