Is Property Group Mapeley Bucking The Trend?

News that Mapeley Group has managed to buck the trend of the property market has made many investors sit up and take notice but is it really that straight forward?

Firstly it is only right to point out that Mapeley works with government departments and blue chip clients, acquiring their properties and managing assets which have the more dependable tenants on board, an outsourcing group in all but name. The group itself has a portfolio worth in excess of £2 billion and the prospects for the future look good, however, the group has taken a hit.

Pre-tax loses for the half year came in at nearly £54 million as oppose to a loss of £30 million last year although much if this is down to non-cash transactions, i.e. a reduction in the value of the groups property portfolio. While many may assume this has no real bearing on the groups balance sheet, it can have if there are insufficient assets to cover outstanding debt. There is no suggestion that this is the case but this shows perfectly the two sides of the property market in the UK.

The purchase and management of property is not as straight forward as many people think and try as companies do, it is very hard to swim against the downward tide of the sector.
