The performance has improved as compared to the previous quarter but declined slightly as compared to 1Q 2021. Although the extension of the COVID-19 restriction (until 21 Nov) would continue to impact CICT performance, the vaccinated travel lane (VTL) might be able to make up for some gaps. For CapitaSpring, the income contribution would start progressively in 1H 2022, which would further boost CICT performance.
