Sun Hung Kai 1H Core Net Jumps; Optimistic On Outlook
11 March 2010

HONG KONG (Dow Jones)--Sun Hung Kai Properties Ltd. (0016.HK) reported Thursday a 44% rise in July-December underlying net profit because of strong rental income and property sales, and said it expects 2010 to be 'another good year' for both home prices and transactions amid a buoyant Hong Kong real-estate sector.

The blue-chip company, Hong Kong's largest developer by market capitalization, also said rents in the retail and office sectors are both likely to grow steadily this year, supported by rising spending by mainland China tourists and the global economic recovery, respectively.

The company's first-half underlying net profit for the six months ended Dec. 31 rose to HK$6.51 billion (US$834.6 million) from HK$4.54 billion a year earlier, and was above the average HK$4.91 billion forecast of four analysts polled earlier by Dow Jones Newswires.

Analysts generally use underlying profit rather than net profit to gauge the performance of Hong Kong property companies because their earnings tend to be distorted by regular revaluations of investment properties.

First-half net profit surged to HK$14.34 billion from HK$692 million due to net gains of HK$8.61 billion from property revaluations. Revenue fell 12% to HK$13.27 billion from HK$15.12 billion.

The underlying profit increase came amid a 29% rise in Hong Kong home prices last year, as interest rates were low and supply was tight, while rents also rose. So far this year, home prices have risen another 5%.

The home price increases have raised concerns an asset bubble is forming in Hong Kong's property market, leading the government recently to pledge it would fine-tune its land-supply policy if necessary.

But Sun Hung Kai, whose recent property launches have drawn a strong response, said the city's home market remains healthy and a bubble hasn't formed.

'We're optimistic towards Hong Kong's property market in the long term. There is room for development in the city's real-estate sector,' Vice Chairman Thomas Kwok told reporters at a news conference.

During its first half, the firm sold or pre-sold HK$9.16 billion worth of properties, up 22% from the year-earlier period. Of that amount, nearly HK$7 billion derived from sales at its luxury Hong Kong projects The Cullinan and The Latitude, both situated in Kowloon.

So far this year, the firm has sold over HK$7.5 billion worth of properties, mainly at Yoho Midtown in the New Territories, which drew a better than expected response, analysts said. The company said it expects its homes sales in 2010 to reach HK$25 billion.

Riding on the market uptrend, Sun Hung Kai is planning to launch several projects in the next nine months, including luxurious residential project Larvotto in Hong Kong Island's Aberdeen district, Valais in Sheung Shui in the New Territories, and Lime Stardom in Kowloon.

The developer said it will continue to boost its land bank in Hong Kong, especially through the conversion of farmland to residential sites, and will adopt a selective approach to expansion in China.

As of Dec. 31, its Hong Kong land bank totaled 44.1 million square feet, and it also held about 25 million square feet of agricultural land that could be converted into developable area.

Its China land bank amounted to an attributable 88.3 million square feet.

Hong Kong developers have been actively replenishing their land banks in the land-scarce city through various means such as government auctions, project tenders offered by the Urban Renewal Authority and rail operator MTR Corp., as well as the redevelopment of dilapidated buildings.

In February, Sun Hung Kai bought a site in Tseung Kwan O of the New Territories in a government land auction with a bid of HK$3.37 billion.

Sun Hung Kai, which operates premium investment properties including International Finance Center in the Central district of Hong Kong Island and International Commerce Center in the West Kowloon district, expects the retail and office leasing markets to improve this year.

'Demand for quality office space is anticipated to show gradual improvement amid the global economic recovery,' it said. 'Rents for top-quality office space in core areas such as Central are likely to fare better due to limited supply.'

The company's gross rental income in the first half rose 12% to HK$5.36 billion, driven by rental rate increases in its retail and office portfolios, especially at International Finance Centre.

Occupancy of the firm's rental portfolio stood at 93% at the end of December, the same level as at the end of June.

The developer proposed a first-half dividend of HK$0.85, up from HK$0.80 the previous year.
