Weekly Update: December 17th, 2020
Here is what happens to Real Estate when things aren’t going well.
They blame it on Covid but I am sure the political climate, taxes etc. are a big part of it
New York’s Plummeting Real Estate Sales Cost City $1.2 Billion
(Bloomberg) — The pandemic’s slowdown in real estate deals has cost New York City $1.2 billion in lost revenue so far this year.
Sales of commercial and residential properties — everything from office buildings to hotels and condo units — are down 49% this year through November, according to a report Thursday by the Real Estate Board of New York.
That’s led to a 42% decline in city tax revenue, compared with the same 11-month period in 2019, the trade group said. The money comes from a long list of levies that each transaction generates. A dearth of deals means fewer collections of transfer and mansion taxes, and less income from newly recorded mortgages.
Real estate investors are taking a pause amid a pandemic that’s reordered how and where New Yorkers live and work — and, in turn, undermined property values. The pullback has dealt a crippling blow to the city’s economy, which relied on the real estate industry for 53% of its annual tax revenue in the last fiscal year, the real estate group said.

Guangdong Land Holdings [HK: 124]
Shareholders Approve Jiangmen Ganhua and Huizhou Dayawan Acquisitions
Jiangmen Ganhua and Huizhou Dayawan Acquisitions Approved. Yesterday, shareholders approved the acquisition of a 51% equity interest in Jiangmen Yuehai and 100% of the equity of Huizhou Yuehai from Guangdong Holdings, the ultimate controlling shareholder of GDL, and Yuegang Investment, a subsidiary of GDH. Jiangmen Yuehai owns the Jiangmen Ganhua Project, a three phase project with 274,371m2 of residential, 28,797m2 of elderly residential apartments and public service facilities, 119,194.52m2 of commercial, 12,800.5m2 for care homes and health centers, and 3,035m2 for ancillary public facilities. Huizhou Yuehai owns the Huizhou Dayawan Project, which is comprised of 81,469m2 of residential space, 9,209m2 of commercial space, and 1,416m2 for ancillary public facilities, as well as a clubhouse and kindergarten on site that total 1,699m2 and are currently under lease, along with 6,541m2 of car park spaces, of which 76% have been delivered.
Model Update. We have added the Jiangmen Ganhua and Huizhou Dayawan projects into our model, starting in February 2021, which is the expected completion date. The two projects add to the Net Profit estimates of the Company starting in 2023, and extends GDL’s cash flow stream well beyond the GDH City project.
Maintaining Rating & Raising Target. The approval from shareholders to acquire the Jiangmen Ganhua and Huizhou Dayawan projects add two promising developments to GDL’s growing portfolio of Greater Bay Area properties. The acquisitions are structured in a cash-friendly way for GDL and should provide a strong cash flow stream beyond GDH City. With the expected cash flows from these new projects, we are reiterating our Buy rating on Guangdong Land Holdings and raising our target price from HK$4.00 to HK$5.00. Our target price is based on our DCF model that covers GDL’s entire project portfolio, discounted at 6.5%.

Apollo Future Mobility Group Limited [HK: 0864]
HK$491 Million Raised After Strong CIIE Showing
HK$491 Million Financing. On Monday, the Company announced it sold 1,066,596,000 new shares to strategic investors from Europe and the Middle East at a price of HK$0.46 per share. The deal was priced at a discount to market thanks to the recent run up in the stock price after CIIE. This deal has presumably been in the works for some time, in which case the deal price was around market pricing pre-CIIE. AMFG anticipates receiving HK$491,000,000 in gross proceeds from the financing (HK$486,000,000 net), which it will use for acquisitions, investments, R&D and general uses. We expect a portion of this cash will be used to complete the Ideenion acquisition.
Success At CIIE. AMFG was an exhibitor, along with other leading global automotive brands, at the China International Import Expo that ran from November 5-10 in Shanghai. The Company showcased a variety of its mobility solutions, including the Apollo IE, its prototype Urban Delivery Vehicle (UDV), GLM’s Electric Mobility Scooter, its ROHM co-developed 800V SiC Dual Inverter, and its self-developed Autonomous Development Chassis. The Expo marked the debut for the UDV, which was designed for last mile transport and can be shipped to customers in knocked-down form to be assembled in local micro factories. Production of the UDV is expected in 2022. GLM’s Scooter is designed to transition mobile seniors from automobiles to a more manageable mode of transport, with the aim of reaching commercialization by the end of 2022. The Autonomous Development Chassis was designed to be a customizable platform for autonomous driving software, and includes electric power steering, an e-braking system, a high powered EV motor, and four LIDAR sensors for mapping needs. The new inverter technology was discussed in a previous report. The Company drew a great deal of attention at the event, both from prospective customers and partners, as well as local media, which should further help AMFG build brand awareness among potential customers, including local auto brands needing technology solutions.
Model Update. We included the new shares and cash from the acquisition, and pushed the completion of the Ideenion acquisition into early 2021. We also made additional adjustments due to the impact of COVID across Asia and Europe.
Maintaining Rating & Raising Target. AMFG continues to make solid progress on multiple fronts as it works to be at the center of not only the shift to electric, but also the shift to outsourced automotive technology and vehicle development. We believe the fundraising provides the capital to move a number of pieces forward and expect to see additional developments in the near future as business returns to normal globally. With continued positive news, we are reiterating our Buy rating on Apollo Future Mobility Group and raising our target price from HK$0.75 to HK$1.50. Our target price is based on a P/E multiple of 25 times our fiscal 2022 Diluted EPS estimate of HK$7.06 cents, discounted one year at 20%. We believe the increased P/E multiple is justified given the increased multiples and valuations received by other companies in the EV space, despite those being singularly focused on a product area rather than diversified as AMFG is.

Guangdong Land Holdings [HK: 124]
GDL Agrees To Acquire Two Greater Bay Area Projects
Two New Projects Acquired. GDL agreed to purchase Jiangmen Yuehai and Huizhou Yuehai from Yuegang Investment, a subsidiary of Guangdong Holdings, the ultimate controlling shareholder of GDL.
Jiangmen Yuehai owns the Jiangmen Ganhua Project, which is located less than four kilometers from the central commercial district of Beixin Sub-district and connected to mass transit, and roughly 10km from GDL’s other Jiangmen project. The Project has a site area of 192,652.34m2, split between two adjacent parcels. Parcel A has a site area of 174,537.52m2 and will have 274,371m2 of residential, 119,194.52m2 of commercial and 3,035m2 for ancillary public facilities. Parcel B has a site area of 18,114.82m2 and will have 28,797m2 of elderly residential apartments and public service facilities and 12,800.5m2 for care homes and health centers. All units will be held for sale. The Ganhua Project will be split into three phases, with pre-sale of Phase 1 commencing in May 2021 and the entire Project slated for completion in December 2026. The Project is currently at the land leveling stage. The purchase price of Jiangmen Yuehai is RMB 954,179,553, which is comprised of RMB 648,179,553 in cash (of which 70% is due on the one year anniversary of deal completion) and the assumption of RMB 306,000,000 in loans. As of August 31, the NAV of Jiangmen Yuehai is RMB 1,275.81 million. Additional details of the Project will be released in the upcoming Circular, which is scheduled for release on November 19.
Huizhou Yuehai owns the Huizhou Dayawan Project, which is located in the Dayawan District of Huizhou, roughly 60km northeast of Shenzhen. The Project has a total site area of 30,698m2 and will be developed to have 92,094m2, comprised of 81,469m2 of residential space, 9,209m2 of commercial space, and 1,416m2 for ancillary public facilities. Development is expected to be completed in October 2023 and pre-sale is expected to start in March 2022. All units will be held for sale. The Project is currently at the land leveling stage. The purchase price of Huizhou Yuehai is RMB 273,797,700, of which RMB 82,139,310 is payable upon completion and the remainder is due on the one year anniversary of deal completion at a 4.35% interest rate. As of August 31, the NAV of Jiangmen Yuehai is RMB 288,990,472. Additional details of the Project will be released in the upcoming Circular.
This deal looks to be another positive development for GDL as it adds to its portfolio of Greater Bay Area projects. Jiangmen Ganhua also provides a provide that will extend beyond GDH City, providing a better picture of future cash flows beyond its initial project. Another positive for GDL is that the majority of the purchase price is first payable on the one year anniversary of deal completion, which provides GDL greater cash flexibility in the near term while it sells existing units to generate cash.
Laurel House Deliveries Drive Q3 Revenue. Yesterday, GDL reported third quarter results with Revenue of HK$1,484.28 million, which nears the total Revenue we had estimated for H2:20. Revenue was driven by a surge in deliveries at Laurel House, which totaled 16,417m2 in the quarter. Cumulatively, GDL has delivered 73.4% of Laurel House. Occupancy of the commercial units at Laurel House stood at 85.4% at the end of the quarter. The remainder came from the delivery of 3,480m2 of space in the NW Land portion of GDH City. Total deliveries of GDH City stand at 18.4%, continuing to sell near our expected levels. GDL posted a slight loss for the quarter, at HK$12.58 million.
