Investment appraisal: Investment value of an office building as at December 2015.
Word guide 2,000 words (excluding figures, tables and appendices)
The task is to calculate the investment value of an office building as at December 2015. There are three tenancies:
The 3,000ft2 ground floor is let at £35,000 per annum. on a lease expiring in June 2017, following which there is expected to be a 12-month void. Outgoings will be incurred during the void period at the rate of £6/ft2 plus, after three months, property tax of £9/ft2. It is estimated that £50/ft2 will need to be spent on refurbishment, before achieving a re-letting subject to a 12-month rent-free period. The current market rent is considered to be £40,000 per annum, expected to increase to approximately £50,000 per annum by the June 2017 re-letting date.
The lease of the first floor (4,000ft2) at £40,000 per annum expires in December 2019. Assume six months void, six months rent-free; void outgoings £6/ft2; property tax £9/ft2 after three months; £40/ft2 refurbishment cost. The current market rent of £60,000 per annum is expected to increase to £69,000 per annum by the June 2020 re-letting date. The lease of the second to fifth floors (16,000ft2) at £190,000 per annum runs until
September 2023, subject to a rent review in September 2018. The current market rent is estimated to be £240,000 per annum, expected to increase to £262,000 per annum by September 2018 when a 5% market rent discount is expected to be applicable at rent review.
A five-year holding period is assumed. A 10% discount rate and an exit yield of 7.25% are considered appropriate.
Your valuation should take the form of a monthly discounted cash flow. Please explain the inputs into the cash flow and any assumptions that you make.

Again, in the role of a property advisor, instructions from a pension fund client considering the purchase of an office property in Reading
Valona House in Reading town centre is a hypothetical property
Partially let with potential for refurbishment
Review the market for offices: look at a few agents’ reports and try and get a handle on general national and regional office market state, prospects and supply, demand and take up locally.
Take a view on where Reading fits into the national and regional context and the different prospects for prime and secondary property in the locality over the next few years.
b, Think about cost and value implications of various courses of action
c. How much would it cost to refurbish the property now and how much are tender prices expected to increase between now and the end of the refurbishment period (assume the tender price is paid at the end of the building work)?
BCIS on-line provides both – look for figures for “rehabilitation” and look for the document providing forecasts for all sorts of items including tender prices.
d. Find the rental value (Market Rent) of the improved property in today’s market based on comparable evidence of similar property lettings in Reading using sources such as CoStar and EGi, agent’s websites, etc.
You need to show your analysis and discuss fully in the report exactly what thought process you went through in interpreting the evidence to get to the rental valuation figure.
e)Rental growth performance
Real and nominal rental growth performance
Reference your data sources
f) Rental growth forecast: how will rents change over the next few years up to the date you decide to sell – I suspect that means over the next four years – you can obtain national figures from the IPF (I’ll provide these). You need to work out what they tell you and decide from your market analysis if Reading will behave differently.
Combining (d) and (f) will give you the projected market rent for the refurbished property at the date you decide to sell it.
g) Yield analysis
The capital value of the refurbished property at the sale date is a function of the rental value at that time capitalised at the capitalisation rate at that time.
Assume that the capitalisation rate is an average of the long term rate from the past. The past figures will be given to you so it is a statistical exercise to work it out.
h) Apply the information to an appraisal model
Set out the quarterly cash flow from the building while the leases are still in place.
Place the sale price after refurbishment in the cash flow and place the refurbishment cost in the cash flow.
Then discount the cash flow at the target rate of return, work out the NPV and IRR of the cash flow assuming it is bought for the asking price.
This will enable you to advise whether to purchase or not and also advise on the price to be offered.
i) In the cash flow you can assume that you let the property for the market rent as soon as the refurbishment is finished.
However, this task asks for a discussion of the possible alternative outcomes – lease terms, incentives, etc.

BUS 429: Financial Derivatives
You are going to work in pairs and write a research paper under the main topic: State of the Derivatives Market. Each pair will select one of the following minor themes to focus on :
1- Recent developments in the US derivatives market ( a pre-post financial crisis comparison is essential in this case).
2- Recent developments in the European market (similar comparison as above with more emphasis on the specific Euro debt crisis).
3- State of the derivatives market in the MENA region. Where do we stand as MENA region with respect to financial derivatives and are we moving forward? Why or why not? I expect you here to investigate the research/opinions regarding financial derivatives and Islamic finance market as well in helping you to answer those questions.
In each paper there should be a minimum of three scholarly articles and three newspaper articles in addition to any relevant web sources. The more resources you use the better your paper will be. I expect you all to benefit from our library databases in your journal and articles search (rather than simple google!) to find the high quality sources. Specific examples of products, institutions, strategies, trends , pricing etc. in the derivatives markets that you will be discussing will make your research paper richer. I will run all assignments on “Safe Assign” and simple copying & pasting from the web sources/articles will result in a failing grade on this assignment. I expect you to use the sources to gather information and then write the paper in your own words. In the conclusion of the assignment I want at least one (reflection) paragraph where you explain your own interpretation of the issue, any arguments that you want to comment on, and what is the major thing that you learnt out of this assignment. Notice that it is more challenging to choose topic 3 rather than 1,2 because there will be much more information available related to topics 1, and 2 compared to 3 hence I will take this into consideration when grading. Finally, you have to pay attention to grammar and spelling in your write up.
The paper should not be less than 5 pages and not more than 10 pages (excluding any tables or charts if present). You should have a cover page with student names & student numbers and the title. You should also have a references page in the appendix with in text citations once needed (those 2 pages are not included in the page count!) The paper should be uploaded to blackboard assignment folder no later than Thursday MAY 12 Beginning of Class and one hard copy should be submitted to me in that class. This assignment will constitute 15% of your total grade.
