*Our philosophy is designed to buy outstanding quality businesses that can grow on a sustainable basis. The intention is to hold them until they may become overvalued. McDonald's has been in the Fund's list of top ten holdings for a long time.
*It is often the sustainability of a simple business model that delivers better than what many may expect. In the case of McDonald's, the model is to own the majority of the restaurant properties and to franchise the restaurant operations to independent franchisee groups.Dividends are funded only from rent income, with any excess rent and the franchise royalty income utilised to reinvest in the business, to cover marketing and relatively low operating costs and to buy back shares.
*As simple as this model may sound, it is very supportive of sustainable growth in different forms. It creates an ideal landlord-tenant relationship in the sense that they are practically business partners working in the best interests of both parties. It also creates a very stable cash flow stream, with less risk of losing a tenant than in most other property businesses. The discipline of paying dividends only from rent income creates a cash flow buffer to finance future growth.
*Of course, enduring success of the restaurants is absolute key for continuing organic growth. In this context, McDonald's invested heavily in product quality and evolved its menu to offer healthy choices, while its scale ensures competitive pricing of its products. Home delivery also has become a new growth avenue.
*The share delivered a total return of +21.3% p.a. over the past five years, compared to +6.9% p.a. for the MSCI World AC index and +11.1% p.a. for the S&P 500 index (all in US$ terms). The dividend has been raised each of the past 43 years, making it one of the world's few Dividend Aristocrats. I
