Income, revenue, dividend and internet asset worth

  • The annual efficiency was additionally just like that reported for FYs 2019 and 2020, however was 15-25% beneath the document income/revenue ranges witnessed throughout FYs 2016 and 2017.
  • H2 income fell 18% and H2 working revenue fell 20% versus the outstanding H2 2021, which loved a gross sales “backlog” following earlier pandemic-related disruption. 
  • Income was cut up 71%/29% between property gross sales and rental revenue, and broadly matched MTVW’s previous ten-year common: 
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • Notice that MTVW sells its regulated-tenancy (and comparable) properties solely when the tenancy ends — which generally happens when the tenant dies. 
  • The combo of properties changing into obtainable on the market — and the full proceeds MTVW earns — can due to this fact differ from one set of outcomes to the subsequent.
  • The 135 properties offered throughout FY 2022 was the bottom quantity for at the very least 20 years:

  • However the common worth achieved from the properties offered reached a brand new excessive of £347k.
  • H2 the truth is witnessed common promoting costs climb to £379k:

  • The £379k common worth maybe displays the “completely different kind of purchaser” MTVW stated had been attending current auctions:

On the acquisition aspect, the tail finish of Covid-19, and particularly the stamp obligation vacation, attracted a completely different kind of purchaser into the public sale rooms who was keen to purchase regulated tenancies at smaller reductions than we believed was affordable.

  • Buoyant gross sales costs do imply MTVW has struggled to seek out public sale bargains: 

We consider that our resolution… to stay to our ideas of danger administration and not chase purchases at any worth is proving a sound one that can defend shareholder worth going ahead.”

  • Most of MTVW’s properties are positioned inside London and south-east England and are comparatively low worth. 
  • Of the 786 properties MTVW offered between FYs 2018 and 2022, 688 achieved lower than £500k, an extra 89 achieved lower than £1m and solely 9 achieved £1m or extra.
  • The cost of the 275p per share particular dividend introduced inside the previous H1 assertion prompted internet asset worth (NAV) to say no for the primary time since FY 2009:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • NAV ended the yr at £393m, or £100.92 per share, versus £395m, or £101.27 per share, twelve months earlier.
  • The 275p per share particular dividend value nearly £11m, and would have lifted NAV to £404m or £103.67 per share have been it not paid.
  • MTVW’s NAV per share development has slowed over time. 
  • NAV per share has compounded at:
    • 3% through the 5 years to FY 2022;
    • 6% through the ten years to FY 2022;
    • 6% through the 15 years to FY 2022, and;
    • 7% through the 20 years to FY 2022.
  • The total-year dividend was raised nearly 12% to 475p per share after the ultimate dividend was lifted 11% to 250p per share. 
  • The previous H1 assertion instructed odd dividends for FY 2023 might not witness comparable advances: 

It isn’t anticipated that this interim dividend will restrict the ultimate dividend payable in August 2022 in any method, however it could be prudent to presume that the interim dividend payable in March 2023 will probably be maintained on the new elevated degree of 225p per share.

  • Administration speak of “troublesome financial circumstances” inside these FY 2022 outcomes can also maintain a lid on near-term odd dividends:

Economists’ views on the place inflation and rates of interest are going and the way lengthy lasting their results will probably be differ throughout the board although we do anticipate that the period of all-time low rates of interest is behind us.”

We at the moment are confronted by the prospect of double-digit inflation which won’t be gone within the blink of an eye fixed and could also be with us for years quite than months.”

“As we now enter a interval of what are anticipated to be troublesome financial circumstances we might discover alternatives of which we will take benefit…”

  • A minimum of Companies House exhibits the dividend has by no means been reduce since at the very least 1979 — after which the payout has risen 317-fold:

Buying and selling properties: gross margin and rental revenue

  • The previous H1 assertion revealed a 54% gross margin generated by means of property gross sales — the bottom since H1 2014 (49%).

I belief the 54% property-sales gross margin for this H1 was attributable to an uncommon assortment of properties changing into obtainable for disposal through the six months…

…and that MTVW’s longer-term gross margin will proceed to common roughly 61%.

  • Certain sufficient, properties offered throughout H2 boasted a 65% gross margin to present a full-year gross margin of 62%:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • A 62% gross margin is equal to purchasing a property for £100k and promoting it for £263k. 
  • Fluctuations to gross margins happen due to the unpredictable mixture of properties changing into obtainable on the market throughout any specific interval. 
  • The proportion achieve on every property offered is correlated to the period of MTVW’s possession, which may vary from just a few years to some a long time.
  • The combo of properties offered tends to even out over time. MTVW’s common gross margin over five-year intervals has been remarkably constant:
    • FYs 2018 to 2022: 60%
    • FYs 2013 to 2017: 62%
    • FYs 2008 to 2012: 60%
    • FYs 2003 to 2007: 63%
  • The 65% property gross margin achieved throughout H2 is just not remarkable however not widespread both.
  • MTVW has recorded property sale gross margins of 65% or extra throughout eight years since FY 2000 — most just lately throughout FYs 2015, 2016 and 2017. 
  • A brilliant 71% property gross margin was the truth is reported for FY 2008.
  • MTVW’s rental-income gross margin at 69% has reverted to regular ranges after sure work was deferred through the pandemic:

  • Rental revenue as a proportion of the carrying worth of all properties was 4.6% throughout FY 2022 and inside the vary seen since FY 2008:

Allsop valuation

  • An encouraging growth throughout this FY involved the proceeds from offered properties in comparison with a previous valuation.    
  • To recap, MTVW commissioned property agent Allsop throughout September 2014 to evaluate the group’s property.
  • Allsop returned a £666m valuation — some 2.1x the £318m e book worth of the properties owned on the time.
  • The Allsop evaluation was primarily based on MTVW’s properties remaining of their regulated-tenancy state and due to this fact excluded any ‘reversionary’ achieve (i.e. the worth uplift that happens when a regulated tenancy finishes, the hire reverts to a correct market degree and the property can then be offered at a good market worth). 
  • The Allsop evaluation was not utilized to the audited accounts. MTVW’s properties as an alternative stay on the stability sheet at their value worth.
  • Following the Allsop evaluation, MTVW reveals the proceeds from offered properties versus their Allsop valuation:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • Previous to the pandemic, sale proceeds realised premiums of between 43% and 53% on the Allsop valuation:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • However the previous H1 assertion confirmed realised beneficial properties on the Allsop valuation to be larger at 65%, and this FY 2022 assertion revealed the premium to be 66% throughout H2.
  • MTVW’s outcomes commentary has by no means referred to the Allsop valuation for the reason that evaluation was undertaken.
  • As such, shareholders are left to guess whether or not the document 66% premium throughout H2 was on account of a beneficial mixture of properties being offered…
  • …or usually larger sale costs being achieved at public sale. 
  • The aforementioned reference to the “completely different kind of purchaser” attending auctions suggests the 66% is certainly supported by larger sale costs…
  • …though whether or not the aforementioned reference to “troublesome financial circumstances” is administration code for the 66% to subside stays to be seen. 
  • A better realised achieve versus the Allsop valuation has constructive implications for estimating MTVW’s potential upside (see Valuation).
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • Through the seven and a half years following the Allsop evaluation, MTVW has raised £351m from promoting properties that the agent had valued at £236m.
  • Promoting properties that Allsop had valued at £236m implies the e book worth (i.e. the unique value) of the properties offered was £113m (£236m divided by that earlier 2.1x a number of). 
  • Promoting Allsop-valued properties with a £113m e book worth signifies Allsop-valued properties with a £205m e book worth stay inside MTVW’s possession as we speak (i.e. the £318m e book worth on the September 2014 evaluation much less the £113m since offered).
  • MTVW throughout FY 2022 offered Allsop-valued properties with an estimated e book worth of roughly £11m, suggesting the remaining Allsop-valued properties of £205m might take an extra 19 years to promote.
  • These FY outcomes confirmed complete buying and selling properties with a £393m e book worth, implying properties bought after the Allsop evaluation have a £188m e book worth (i.e. £393m much less the remaining Allsop-valued properties of £205m).
  • Keep in mind the figures above are guesstimates and may very well be quite inaccurate.
  • As extra Allsop-valued properties are offered and different properties are bought, the much less related the Allsop valuation turns into to the share worth.  
  • MTVW refuses to undertake one other Allsop-type valuation.
  • The 2022 annual report reiterated the next textual content from earlier years:

“The [Allsop] valuation is not a useful gizmo for working the enterprise as a result of we’re all the time going to await vacant possession, and no perceived uplift in worth can justify promoting a tenanted property. The character of our enterprise and the foundations and conventions below which we function place no obligation upon us to worth our buying and selling inventory at any given time and due to this fact the valuation has not been up to date since.” 

  • And through the 2021 AGM, the board:
    • Repeated it was “reluctant to inflict shareholders the price” of one other evaluation;
    • Disclosed Allsop was paid £600k for the 2014 evaluation, and;
    • Described the expense as a “substantial quantity for one thing of little or no use”.
  • I keep MTVW should implement common valuations to offer better readability as to the inherent worth of the group’s property property.
  • Additional valuations might additionally assist shareholders decide the astuteness of MTVW’s more moderen purchases and the appropriateness of the board’s pay (see Protest votes and executive pay).

Financials

  • MTVW’s accounts stay very easy. 
  • Some £13m (earlier than acquisition bills) was spent through the yr buying 53 further properties at a median value of £237k:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • The £14m (after acquisition bills) was the bottom spent since FY 2009 (£6m), and compares to at the very least £17m spent on new properties yearly since FY 2012:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • £8m of the £14m was spent throughout H2, though MTVW doesn’t disclose how most of the 53 bought properties have been acquired throughout H1 and H2.
  • I’ve already contemplated whether or not the low degree of property purchases alongside the 275p per share particular dividend are resulting in a brand new firm chapter, wherein MTVW successfully goes into ‘run off’ because the group sells extra properties than it buys.
  • The variety of regulated tenancies owned by MTVW topped 3,000 20 years in the past, topped 2,500 ten years in the past however as we speak stands at roughly 1,800:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • MTVW’s trading-property property has a £393m e book worth, of which regulated tenancies symbolize £313m or 80%:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • MTVW’s typical funding properties are presently within the books at £25m or £6.53 a share.
  • Full-year earnings of £27m funded dividends of £28m and debt repayments of £2m, which in flip left internet debt at £19m — barely larger than the H1 degree of £16m however nonetheless the bottom year-end degree since FY 1999 (£13m). 
  • Internet debt of £19m is equal to five% of the group’s £393m trading-property property — the bottom year-end share since at the very least FY 1997:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • MTVW’s gearing has been a lot larger. Throughout FYs 2012 and 2013 for instance, internet debt was equal to 30% of the property portfolio.
  • The annual-report small-print disclosed banking amenities of as much as £90m — equal to 23% of the property property.
  • The modest gearing alongside the debt headroom suggests MTVW would don’t have any downside buying future property bargains ought to any “troublesome financial circumstances” emerge.
  • Finance prices of simply £298k for this FY indicate a remarkably low 1.5% rate of interest on the interval’s £21m common internet debt.
  • Each commerce debtors and commerce collectors proceed to symbolize a trivial 3% or much less of income:
  • MTVW’s accounts stay freed from defined-benefit pension obligations.

Protest votes and government pay

  • Regardless of MTVW’s illustrious historical past of NAV and dividend advances, not each shareholder is content material with the way in which the corporate is managed.
  • The final six AGMs have witnessed c30% protest votes in opposition to re-electing unbiased non-execs, approving the board’s pay and re-appointing the auditors. 
  • MTVW’s shareholders fall into three camps:
    • The Sinclair household live performance social gathering, which is led by chief government Duncan Sinclair and controls simply over 50% of the share depend;
    • The Murphy household and linked events, who declare to personal 24% of the share depend and whose main shareholder is the chief government’s sister, and;
    • Everyone else, who personal 25% of the share depend.
  • The protest votes come from the Murphy household and linked events.
  • From what I can inform, the Murphy household is broadly glad with how MTVW’s day-to-day operations are run, however:
    • Is aggrieved in regards to the board’s pay;
    • Has misplaced the belief of the non-execs to behave on the views of all shareholders, and;
    • Is annoyed a few basic lack of affect at board degree.
  • The Murphy household and different sad shareholders have prevented the re-election of sure non-execs on the 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 AGMs:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • Following every AGM, MTVW is entitled to convene a basic assembly and maintain an extra vote to re-elect the ousted non-execs.
  • The ousted non-execs have (so far) all been re-appointed on the subsequent basic conferences as a result of the Sinclair live performance social gathering can then vote on the non-exec re-elections (not like on the AGMs, the place the live performance social gathering is prohibited from voting on specific ‘unbiased’ resolutions).         
  • The voting chart above exhibits the typical AGM votes for and in opposition to the re-election of the contentious non-execs. The typical protest votes in opposition to are slowly rising, rising from 827k to 1,018k since 2017.
  • Inventory market guidelines dictate any firm incurring a sizeable AGM or EGM protest vote has to contact the sad traders and publish an replace to shareholders inside six months. 
  • Six months after the 2021 AGM, MTVW said:

Following the 2021 AGM, and because it has finished beforehand, the Firm recognized so far as attainable these shareholders who didn’t help the varied resolutions and tried to interact with them to hunt their views.  These shareholders didn’t want to interact

  • Then six months after the follow-up 2021 EGM, MTVW modified the wording barely:

Following the assembly, the Firm recognized, so far as attainable, these shareholders who didn’t help the resolutions and tried to interact with them to hunt their views. Some shareholders didn’t want to interact..

  • Whether or not some or not one of the opposing shareholders are partaking privately with MTVW is tough to say. 
  • New pay preparations for the executives most likely inspired protest votes on the 2022 AGM.
  • MTVW’s chief exec claimed the revised remuneration was “very important” for the administrators:

While I’m very completely happy to take care of my shareholders on this method I’m very conscious to take care of the Mountview employees who make all this attainable. My biggest concern is for probably the most modestly paid however it’s very important that the extra extremely paid are rewarded for his or her endeavours as a result of it’s their choices which make the long run prosperity of Mountview attainable. On this gentle I belief that shareholders will help these resolutions that permit the potential to help the choice makers.

  • The brand new pay preparations mirror a rebalancing of government salaries and bonuses:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • Government pay is now cut up 75% wage and 25% bonus versus 55% wage and 45% bonus.
  • The remuneration report stated the rebalancing was prompted by “observations through the pandemic and likewise in response to feedback from shareholders“.
  • The draw back to the rebalancing maybe is the elevated scope for executives to earn extra money at a time when returns to shareholders is probably not so nice. 
  • In spite of everything:
    • Government salaries might rise sooner than bonuses as MTVW lifts worker pay to fight better inflation, whereas;
    • Enterprise efficiency and due to this fact bonuses might undergo if MTVW and the housing market do certainly endure “troublesome financial circumstances”.
  • How MTVW’s government bonuses are derived is complicated, and probably encourages the protest votes on pay. 
  • For instance, one part of the remuneration report suggests board bonuses are aligned to group revenue…

Base wage is reviewed with regard to seniority, inflationary will increase, private efficiency, adjustments in tasks, market themes and peer group; whereas the short-term incentive award is reviewed and aligned to:

* the Group’s monetary metrics (primarily revenue earlier than tax);
* the Government Director’s private contribution; and
* non-financial company targets to construct for long run sustainable success, together with administration growth, succession planning and the upkeep of a strong enterprise infrastructure.”

  • …whereas one other part of the remuneration report suggests board bonuses are not linked to group revenue:

“The Remuneration Committee thought of that, whereas firmly of the view that there must be a transparent hyperlink between the Group’s monetary outcomes and the quick time period incentive aspect of the remuneration of the Government Administrators, the usage of metrics that tried to hyperlink Government Director’s efficiency with the present yr’s earnings can be unreliable and, at finest, be synthetic and, at worst, be deceptive. Consequently, the Remuneration Committee concluded that the present strategy continued to be applicable.

  • Bonuses are common fixtures of the board’s pay. The chief exec has obtained a bonus yearly since at the very least FY 2001…
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • …which does increase the query as as to whether the bonuses are successfully assured.
  • MTVW is the one firm I do know that features government remuneration inside its annual-report abstract desk:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • The desk exhibits that complete government pay has been maintained at 10-11% of odd dividends, which can bode nicely for future payouts if the remuneration rebalancing results in a lot larger director pay… and naturally the 10-11% ratio is sustained! 
  • The chief exec’s fundamental pay will probably be lifted from a (rebalanced) £800k to £830k for FY 2023. The finance director will probably be on £675k.
  • Discover inside the abstract above how the (two) executives accumulate a sizeable 40%-plus of all worker pay.
  • I’d enterprise that if MTVW can afford to pay the executives an combination £12m since FY 2016, then the group may also afford a follow-up Allsop-type valuation for a mooted £600k.
  • Suffice to say, a follow-up Allsop-type valuation — and any enhancements proven — might then be used as an additional measure to find out the board’s efficiency and bonus ranges.

Valuation

  • MTVW’s shares may very well be value £210, assuming the entire group’s regulated tenancies (and comparable) finish instantly and the properties then fetch a good market worth.
  • The next desk outlines the sums:
Property inventory Sept 2014 (£ok)317,651
Much less offered Allsop-assessed inventory (£ok)(112,791)
204,860
Allsop-premium-to-book2.10x
Bought-premium-to-Allsop1.65x
709,683
Inventory bought since Sept 2014188,415
Bought-premium-to-Allsop1.33x
250,593
Doable property inventory worth (£ok)960,276

  • I’ve taken the unique September 2014 property worth of £318m and subtracted the (estimated) £113m e book worth of Allsop-assessed properties offered since that date. 
  • I then multiplied the £205m the rest by the two.1x ‘Allsop-premium-to-book’ a number of after which added a 65% ‘sold-premium-to-Allsop’ achieve that was loved throughout FY 2022.
  • I arrived at a £710m estimate for all of MTVW’s properties that have been owned at September 2014 however have but to be offered.
  • Since September 2014, MTVW has acquired further properties with a internet £188m e book worth. 
  • Including the £710m and the £251m collectively provides £960m.
  • This subsequent desk adjusts that £960m for 25% taxation, the £25m typical property portfolio, internet debt and different liabilities to present a attainable e book worth of £819m or £210 per share:
Doable property inventory worth (£ok)960,276
Much less tax at 25% (£ok)(141,750)
Plus different investments (£ok)25,451
Much less internet debt (£ok)(18,557)
Much less different liabilities (£ok)(6,683)
Doable NAV (£ok)818,737
Doable NAV per share (£)209.99

  • Keep in mind my estimated worth of MTVW’s property property has not likely improved throughout current years. Earlier estimates have been:
  • The £200-£214 range-bound estimates might clarify why the share worth has made little headway throughout the identical time:
  • The range-bound estimates may additionally counsel MTVW displays:
    • ‘Worth lure’ traits, whereby all of the property buying and selling is just not actually creating a lot further profit for shareholders, and/or;
    • ‘Secure haven’ traits, whereby the property property is more likely to retain a gentle worth no matter future “troublesome financial circumstances“.
  • My estimated NAV sums aren’t good, and these questions stay unanswered:
    • How lengthy will MTVW take to promote all of its properties?
    • Will future house-price advances compensate for being unable to promote all of the properties instantly?
    • How dependable is the 2014 Allsop valuation as we speak?
    • What affect might annual admin prices of £6m have on the calculations? (I’ve ignored such prices)
  • …however I’m not longer certain the extra complexity of forecasting sale costs, rental revenue and admin prices offers that a lot additional perception.
  • A watered-down DCF different relies on an identical ‘run-off’ state of affairs, whereby ‘run-off earnings’ are calculated by including again inventory offered through the yr to reported earnings however no changes are made to mirror future sale costs, rental revenue and admin prices.
  • Run-off earnings have bobbed across the £46m mark over the past 4 years:
MOUNTVIEW ESTATES: Estimated NAV At £210 Per Share After H2 2022 Reveals Common Sale Reaching £379k To Realise 66% Premium Over Allsop Valuation Receive US Obtain US
  • Initially of FY 2022, MTVW’s trading-property property had a £398m e book worth and through the yr properties with a £19m e book worth have been offered. 
  • With the year-end property carrying a £393m valuation and, assuming inventory of £19m is offered yearly, MTVW would take one other 21 years to eliminate its whole property.
  • 21 years of run-off earnings of £46m give an combination £973m or £250 per share valuation.
  • Low cost all 21 funds of £46m at 7% each year, and their complete internet current worth would equal the current £507m market cap. 
  • In principle at the very least, the calculations indicate shareholders would possibly take pleasure in 7% annual returns ought to MTVW by no means purchase one other property. 
  • These run-off sums aren’t good, as they don’t account for i) fluctuating sale costs; ii) decrease rental revenue and admin prices because the property property shrinks, and; iii) the upcoming 25% tax charge.
  • Turning to extra conventional valuation measures, MTVW’s shares have usually traded forward of NAV (pink line beneath) following the Allsop valuation:
  • The premium to NAV with a £130 share worth is 29%, which isn’t the smallest surplus the shares have ever traded post-Allsop.
  • One of the best time to purchase seems to be when the market cap slides to (or beneath) NAV, at which level no future beneficial properties from the unique property purchases are priced into the valuation:
  • My authentic MTVW buy occurred throughout 2011 when the £41 shares traded at 0.75x the then £55 per share NAV.
  • The 475p per share odd dividend in the meantime provides a 3.6% revenue that’s not fairly on the 4%-plus degree the shares have often provided:
  • With MTVW presently struggling to seek out appropriate buying alternatives, maybe extra money stream can as an alternative ship additional particular dividends and quickly improve that 3.6% yield.
