Modern Land differentiates itself from other developers on its outstanding research and development
capability to incorporate energy-saving technologies to property development. The Group provides a wide variety of modules such as the installation of exterior walling system, displacement ventilation system and sun protection glazing etc, to meet different weather conditions, environments and customers’ needs. Its properties with the adoption of environmentally friendly technologies may see solid demand, on the back of increasing awareness for environmental protection.
Riding on its recognition in Beijing, the Group has expanded its operations to other provinces including
Shanxi, Hunan, Jiangxi and Hubei. Besides, Modern Land also considers to expand its business to the US, as the application of eco-friendly technologies in housing projects have been well received by the US market and also the Group has been awarded a few recognitions by various US institutes including LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Expansion to the US may help the Group diversify its businesses from the geographical perspective. In December 2012, Modern Land purchased a parcel of land with a site area of approximately 196,155 square meters in Texas, the US, which is intended for residential project development.
Average new home prices in 70 major cities in China rose 0.9% month-on-month or 6% year-on-year
in May. In Beijing, new home prices in May even jumped 11.8% from a year earlier, compared with April’s year-on-year increase of 10.3%. In light of surging property prices in China, the Chinese government is unlikely to relax its tightening measures anytime soon which may dampen the property sales, especially the luxury housing segment.
Modern Land’s gross profit margin may fall in the coming 2 to 3 years. During the track record period,
its revenue relied on its high-end property projects – “Wan Guo Cheng MOMA” product line. However, its projects currently under development are mainly belong to “Man Ting Chun MOMA” product line, which target mass-market and have relatively lower gross profit margins as compared to its “Wan Guo Cheng MOMA” product line.
In accordance with market practice, mortgage banks usually require the Group to guarantee its
customers’ mortgage loans. As of 31st December 2010, 2011 and 2012, its outstanding guarantees for mortgage loans amounted to approximately RMB1,427.0 million, RMB1,229.6 million and RMB1,434.7 million, respectively. If there is any material default by its customers on such loans, the Group may be required to honour its guarantees and its results of operations and financial position may be adversely affected.
Valuation-wise, shares of Modern Land are offering at 5.5x 2012 P/E, which is not compelling
compared with its peers’ average of 4.7x. In view of policy headwinds and expected fall in gross profit margin, we do not recommend to subscribe for Modern Land.
