Stephen Wicks, Chief Executive of Inland commented:

 

"This is an excellent set of results, ahead of market expectations, and provides further evidence that the strategic expansion of our housebuilding activity was well timed and effective.

 

"More importantly, we have been able to significantly increase our land bank, which stands at a record level, alongside the increase in housebuilding activity, providing a rich platform for future growth.

 

"We have entered the current financial year in robust financial shape and with excellent momentum. Market conditions remain in our favour and I am confident that the Group will continue to deliver on its strategic goals and make further, exciting progress."

Notes to Editors:

Inland Homes acquires brownfield land in the South and South-East of England principally for residentially led development schemes. The business then enhances the land value by obtaining planning permission, before building open market and affordable homes or selling surplus consented land to other developers to generate cash to reinvest in new brownfield opportunities.

 

Chairman's statement

"I am very pleased to be reporting on another excellent year for Inland Homes plc during which the Group has increased pre-tax profits by more than 65%"

The performance of the business has been outstanding with all of our strategic objectives having been achieved.  These include increasing our housebuilding completions, substantially growing our land bank and achieving industry leading margins.

 

Private unit completions (including those managed on behalf of Drayton Garden Village Limited (DGVL)) more than doubled to 114 (2013: 55) with 436 units under construction across nine development sites.  The unmet demand for homes in the UK continues to grow, a situation that is exacerbated by the continuing shortage of supply.  The demand in the south and south east of England, where the Group operates, is particularly strong and is demonstrated by the forward sales position, for both Inland and DGVL, of £54.6m in respect of units which have been reserved or where contracts have been exchanged.  This places us in a strong position and we would expect that our net borrowings, which at the year end amounted to £28.8m (2013: £3.9m), to reduce significantly over the next 6 months as a result of these forward sales, along with a number of planned land disposals.

 

The number of building plots sold in the year, including plots sold by DGVL, was 169 (2013: 451) reflecting our strategy to grow our housebuilding activities.  Despite the land disposals and unit completions, I am pleased to report that the land bank has also increased by 61.9% since 3 October 2013 to 3,734 plots (including those managed on behalf of DGVL) of which 1,318 plots have planning permission.  This pipeline of residential plots is anticipated to result in future gross development value of approximately £1.1bn.  In addition to these plots the the land bank contains commercial space which currently generates annual rental income of £605,000.

 

The Group's operating expenses increased as we continued to invest in personnel in line with our growing turnover and profitability. 

 

Given the Group's strong earnings, growth and forward sales position the Board is proposing to increase the dividend by 122.2% to 0.6p (2013: 0.27p) per share subject to shareholders' approval at the AGM which is to be held on 1 December 2014.  The final dividend will be paid to shareholders on 9 January 2015.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our small, entrepreneurial and highly motivated team for all their hard work which has been reflected by these highly commendable and record results.  They continue to create inspiring development opportunities that I have no doubt will stand the Group in good stead over future years.

Chief Executive's Review

"Our performance this year demonstrates that we have the right strategy going forward.  The Group is in an excellent shape with tremendous momentum behind us as we move into the new financial year"

This was another outstanding year of progress for Inland Homes.

 

We are benefiting from better market conditions with improved mortgage availability, together with the boost for home buyers provided by the Government's Help to Buy initiative. Of the 114 private legal completions, 62 purchasers used the funding provided under this scheme. The core activity of our business remains the acquisition of predominantly brownfield land acquired without planning permission.  We have also made a decision to supplement our brownfield activities with a number of longer term strategic sites where land is secured under a long term option at a discount to market value. The land portfolio includes six such sites with the potential for 620 plots.

 

Since last year's report a number of substantial milestones were achieved in our site acquisition programme, namely:

 

RAF Stanbridge, Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire

·      Former MoD site with consent now achieved for 175 plots plus commercial space

 

Reading Road, Henley, Oxfordshire

·      Former commercial site with scope for 55 plots

 

Lily's Walk, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire

·      Former gas works with scope for 200 plots plus commercial space

 

Queens Road, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire

·      Consent secured for 14 units

 

The Vale, Acton, West London

·      Builders merchants with scope for 100 plots plus commercial space

 

Rainsford Road, Chelmsford, Essex

·      Former public house where we have secured consent for 14 units

 

Tiptree, Essex

·      Former sports ground with scope for 40 plots

 

Meridian, Southampton, Hampshire

·      Former TV studios on seven acres with scope for 350 plots

 

Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire

·      Joint venture with another developer. A 50 acre site to be acquired jointly with scope for in excess of 300 plots plus commercial space

 

Loudwater, Buckinghamshire

·      A five acre investment property site producing income and having development potential and is of strategic importance for the development of a wider area

 

Wilton Park, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire

·      Financial partners of Inland have now completed the purchase of this 100 acre site from the Ministry of Defence, who are being challenged by a third party by way of a Judicial Review in respect of the sale.  Shareholders may recall that Inland own the preferred access to this site which has been allocated in the Local Plan for in excess of 300 new homes. An agreement will be concluded with our financial partners shortly after the Judicial Review process is concluded.

 

The number of residential plots in the land bank of the Group and those separately held by DGVL is currently as follows:

 

Owned or contracted with planning consent

1,070

Drayton Garden Village with planning consent

248

Owned or contracted without planning consent

605

Plots controlled or term agreed

1,811

Total plots

3,734

 

Whilst commercial investment and development is not a core activity, current annual rental income generated by the land bank now exceeds £600,000.  This has been bolstered by the lease to Sainsbury's at Drayton Garden Village that was let on a 15 year term with a starting rent of £64,000 per annum.

 

Of particular note in the year was our development at West Plaza, Ashford in Middlesex of 152 apartments. This project is nearing completion with total anticipated revenue of approximately £33.0m. 90% of the apartments are either contracted for sale or legally completed.

 

Planning permission was received for our development of 152 apartments and commercial space at Callis Yard, Woolwich in London. This is a brownfield site which is opposite a new Crossrail station and close to the town centre. The planning consent has resulted in a very significant increase in the value of the site over its carrying value.

 

The strategy of acquiring sites in the outer boroughs of London is gathering momentum and we were particularly pleased with the unconditional purchase of a builder's yard in Acton, West London which should yield over 100 residential plots along with some commercial space.

 

Significant planning approvals or resolutions to grant planning permission gained in the in the year are as follows:

Vale Road, Bushey

41

Total

378

 

One of our intentions is to make forward sales of the units we construct to organisations that specialise in building up private rental portfolios. Heads of terms have recently been signed for a substantial development at Drayton Garden Village of over 200 homes with an institution seeking to  build a private rental portfolio in the UK. The construction is intended to be financed via the Government's "Build to Rent" scheme.

 

We believe that with home ownership now being out of the reach for an increasingly large group of the younger population, private rental homes which are properly managed by long term landlords will become very popular with home occupiers as well as forming an exciting new asset class for institutional investors. Inland expects to have substantial involvement in this sector using sites from its well located land bank.

 

As mentioned in the Chairman's Statement, these are excellent results but the key factor is that we have created a sound platform for growth. In addition, our performance this year demonstrates that we have the right strategy going forward.

 

The Group is in an excellent shape with tremendous momentum behind it as we move into the new financial year.

 

The considerable progress which is being made at Inland is entirely due to our small, highly motivated team.  I would like to thank them for their continued hard work, commitment and support in ensuring we deliver our strategy of growth and value for our shareholders.

Finance Director's Review

The Group has produced a record set of results for the year ended 30 June 2014 with increasing revenues and profitability from housebuilding.  Inland's strategic decision to increase its housebuilding activity was well timed to catch both the recovery in the housebuilding sector as well as the wider economy.  Although debt funding for the acquisition of land with or without planning consent has been almost non-existent, there are signs of some entrants into this market.  Finance for housebuilding has become far more readily available and this has assisted the expansion of our housebuilding activities.

The key highlights of our financial performance are:

•      Revenue has increased by 28.0% to £39.8m (2013: £31.1m);

•      Profit before tax has increased by 65.7% to £8.6m (2013: £5.2m);

•      Basic earnings per share has increased by 45.0% to 2.87p (2013: 1.98p);

•      Dividend per share increased by 122.2% to 0.6p (2013: 0.27p)

•      Net assets per share increased by 10.1% to 31.6p (2013: 28.7p), which excludes the Group's share of future profit from DGVL, currently estimated at 2.8p per share net of tax, and any unrealised gains within our land bank;

•      Year end cash balance of £11.2m (2013: £12.2m);

•      Net gearing (including the accrued ZDP liability) has increased to 45.0% (2013: 6.7%) due to a planned increase in housebuilding;

Trading performance

Group revenue was up by 28.0% to £39.8m (2013: £31.1m).  This included land sales of £6.7m (2013: £16.4m), open market unit completions of £18.8m (2013: £11.4m), affordable home sales of £2.5m (2013: £nil) and fee income from DGVL of £6.6m (2013: £3.0m).  The gross margin increased to 39.4% (2013: 24.7%) and the open market unit completions generated a gross margin of 27.5% (2013: 21.1%). The average selling price of the private units (including those sold on behalf of DGVL) was £256,000 (2013: £208,000). The Group uses main contractors to construct all the units we build and after administrative overheads of £4.4m (2013: £2.7m) it has achieved an operating margin of 26.4% (2013: 16.3%).  Administrative overheads have increased primarily due to an increase in staff costs.

Finance expense

As expected, the Group's net debt has increased to £28.8m in comparison to £3.9m in the previous year primarily due to the expansion in housebuilding, and this resulted in net finance expense to increase to £2.5m (2013: £1.4m).  The net finance expense is covered 3.5 times (2013: 3.7 times).

Taxation

The total tax charge represents 32.8% of profit before tax.  This is significantly higher than the UK corporation tax rate because the Group wrote off £469,000 of the deferred tax asset due to the reduction in the future rate of corporation tax.  £225,000 was also written off the deferred tax asset due to a stock and work in progress credit that has been released to cost of sales as it was originally subject to a notional interest adjustment in respect of deferred land payment terms. The tax charge on current year profits of 25.3% is also high due to the impairment of the fair value of the option over the shares in DGVL and the interest accrued to ZDP shareholders being disallowed for tax purposes.

Earnings per share and dividends

Earnings per share have increased by 45.0% over the previous year to 2.87p (2013: 1.98p).  The increase is disproportionate to the increase in profit before tax due to the higher tax charge in the current year as explained above as well as a higher level of brought forward tax losses available for relief in the previous year.

The Board has proposed a final dividend of 0.6p per share for the year ended 30 June 2014, subject to approval by the shareholders.  This is an increase of 122.2% in comparison to the previous year, in line with the progressive dividend strategy adopted by the Board and reflecting both the strong set of results as well as the confidence in the Group's financial position.  The dividend will be paid on 9 January 2015 to shareholders on the register at the close of business on 12 December 2014. The ex-dividend date is 11 December 2014.

Cash flows

During the year the Group increased operating cash flows before movements in working capital by 125% to £11.6m (2013: £5.1m). The increase in investment in land and the expansion of the housebuilding activity led to £24.5m of cash outflow from operating activities which has predominantly been financed by a planned increase in debt.  During the year, lenders have continued to remain very cautious in providing funding for land irrespective of whether it has planning permission or not.  The Group had to therefore rely on its own resources as well as vendor financing to fund these purchases.  In addition to bank debt, the Group raised £1.1m by way of issuing 934,900 Zero Dividend Preference shares with a gross redemption yield of 5.57% pa. 

The net cash inflow from financing activities was £22.6m (2013: £12.3m) and this included proceeds from the sale of 1,325,000 treasury shares of £580,000.  It also included the repayment of a loan of £1.0m from our former associate company, Howarth Homes PLC, new loans of £26.3m and dividends paid of £0.5m.

Financial position

The Group's inventories increased by 101.8% over the previous year to £90.3m (2013: £44.7m) due to the purchase of eight new sites during the year as well as an increase in investment due to the number of units under construction.  The amount due from DGVL has decreased to £10.5m (2013: £13.7m) resulting in a lower amount of trade and other receivables.  Current liabilities increased from £18.5m to £51.0m as land creditors, trade creditors and loan balances have increased. Net gearing at the year end (including the accrued ZDP liability) was 45.0% (2013: 6.7%) and net assets increased to £64.0m (2013: £57.7m) equating to 31.6p per share.  It should be noted that this figure excludes the Group's share of future profit from DGVL, currently estimated at approximately 2.8p per share net of tax. It also excludes the unrealised added value accumulated within the land bank due to planning permissions achieved on some of the sites.

Notes to the preliminary announcement

For the year ended 30 June 2014

 

1. DGVL Arrangement
The Group has entered into an Option and Development Services Agreement (The Agreement) with DGVL. Consistent with prior years the Board has determined that DGVL should not be consolidated in the financial statements of the Group because the group does not have control.

The Group is entitled to receive a fee for the provision of planning application services, assistance in obtaining statutory and third party consents, assistance in entering into development and construction agreements, assistance in achieving sales, assistance in engaging professional advisers, seeking opportunities to generate interim revenues and the potential provision of finance to DGVL in respect of the site known as Drayton Garden Village.

At 30 June 2014 the arrangements in place entitled Inland to 90% of the profits expected to be realised from the sale of the property over the life of the project. 83.04% for the provision of planning application and property management services completed at the balance sheet date 6.96% of the profits due for the provision of finance to DGVL.

The table below shows the revenue and notional interest recognised by Inland in comparison to the results recognised by DGVL on its sales under UK GAAP:

The accounting policy for revenue recognition by DGVL is as follows:

Turnover comprises the sale of land acquired for resale, the sale of completed properties, the sale of equipment and materials and amounts receivable by the company in respect of other services rendered during the period excluding value added tax. Turnover in respect of the sale of land and properties is recognised at the point of completion, when the title passes. Turnover from other services is recognised as the service is delivered. Turnover on the sale of equipment is recognised on the completion of the sale.

7. Contingencies
The Group has the following contingent liability as at 30 June 2014:

A subsidiary undertaking, Poole Investments plc, ceased to participate in its operating subsidiary's pension scheme when it disposed of former subsidiaries in May 2004. The Scheme's principal employer, Pilkington's Tiles Limited went into administration on 14 June 2010 and as a result Poole may be liable for a share of the cost of securing the liabilities of the Scheme pertaining to its two former employees should there be a deficit on the Scheme's fund. The Directors consider that, as at the balance sheet date, material uncertainty exists over the basis and calculation of any obligation that may fall due to Poole. Advice has been sort to clarify the Company's position and as a result no provision has been made in the financial statements as the basis of any provision cannot be reliably established.

8. Publication of non-statutory accounts

The financial information set out in this preliminary announcement does not constitute statutory accounts as defined in section 435 of the Companies Act 2006. The Group Income Statement, the Group Statement of Comprehensive Income, the Group Statement of Financial Position at 30 June 2014, the Group Statement of Changes in Equity and the Group Statement of Cash Flows and associated notes for the year then ended have been extracted from the Group's financial statements. Those financial statements have not yet been delivered to the Registrar, nor have the auditors reported on them.

 

This statement is not being posted to shareholders. The Annual Report and Financial Statements will be posted to shareholders shortly. A copy will also be available on the Company's website, www.inlandplc.com in due course. Further copies are available on request to the Company Secretary at Inland Homes plc.
