Third Avenue Comments on Post Properties

Post Properties Post Properties (PPS) owns and operates one of the most highly coveted apartment portfolios in North America with approximately 19,000 units in high-job-growth markets such as Atlanta, Dallas, and Washington D.C. The portfolio is currently more than 95% leased. The company is known for its high-quality luxury properties in infill locations desired by rising professionals who can afford premium rental rates. With the recent selloff in U.S. REIT stocks, Post Common traded at a 52-week low and allowed the Fund to establish its position at a price that represents a discount to our conservative estimate of net asset value (NAV) and substantially below its potential value to a strategic buyer in a negotiated transaction. With a superior balance sheet (net debt-to-assets of less than 30%) and internal growth prospects (through higher rental rates and development opportunities), we believe it is likely the company will be able to compound NAV by 6% to 10% annually, over the next two to three years, without having to raise external capital in order to do so.

From Third Avenue's semi-annual 2013 review.
