I’m going through Mapletree Industrial Reit Annual Report for 18/19. I’m thinking of using the Financial Analysis Excel Template to determine the valuation for REITS but not sure if the template is suitable/applicable? Also, should Share of Joint Venture and Net Fair Value gain in investment properties be counted as extraordinary items?
Thank you!

I think it is technically fine though it might be a little overkill (REITs are a much more simple business).

It is good to note that the metrics we use is slightly different, such as we use Debt-to-Asset instead of Debt-to-Equity.

Valuation wise, perhaps Price to Cashflow and Price to Book would be a good starter.

Hi Victor,
The investment quadrant system is not suitable to analyse REITS, Banks and Insurance as it required a different sets of metric
