Business sector screening:

Mindspace Business Parks REIT is an entity jointly backed by private equity major Blackstone Group and realty developer K Raheja Corp.

The Company’s portfolio as on 31st March 2020 includes a total leasable area of 29.5 million square feet with 10 Office Assets and 170+ tenants. The company's property portfolio essentially comprises of five integrated business parks and five quality independent offices in Mumbai Region, Hyderabad, Pune and Chennai.

The tricky areas from a Shariah perspective for a REIT:

The revenue derived from non-permissible tenants needs to be reviewed:

Review the tenant portfolio for:

- Conventional Financial services providers such as banks/Insurance companies. Even thier in-house backend processing is considered non-compliant
- Entertainment venues such as theaters and Cinemas
- Casinos
- Hotels and resorts serving alcohol, pork, tobacco products as well as for housing night clubs.
- Restaurants/Bars/clubs selling alcohol, pork and tobacco
- Retail stores/supermarkets selling alcohol, pork, tobacco, music

MINDSPACE Business Parks REIT Tenant portfolio:

The company's portfolio consist of only office buildings. Hence, tenant profile of the same needs to be analyzed.

The company states that its largest tenants include affiliates of Accenture, Qualcomm, BA Continuum, JP Morgan, Amazon, Schlumberger, UBS, Capgemini, Facebook, Barclays and BNY Mellon.

The ten largest tenants contributed 41% of total revenue and no single tenant contributed more than 8.7% of total revenue.

The company states that tenants from Financial Services sector contribute 18.8% of its Gross contracted rentals and occupies 16.8% of its leased area as on 30th June 2019.

Mindspace Business Parks REIT Prospectus further elaborates that companies from the conventional financial services sector like Bank of America Continuum, JP Morgan, and UBS contribute 3.3%, 3.3% and 2.5% of Gross Contracted Rentals respectively as of 30th June 2019.

These three named conventional financial services sector tenants contribute 8.8% revenue for Mindspace Business Parks REIT
