Keppel DC REIT Review @ 27 April 2022

  • Country(s) with Assets: Singapore, Australia, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, China, England, Italy & Malaysia
  • No. of Properties (exclude development/associate/fund): 21

Performance Highlight

Gross revenue and NPI have declined slightly but DPU remains more or less the same.

Sensitivity to Interest Rate
For every 1% increase in interest rate, DPU would decline by 1%.

Despite the slight decline in gross revenue and NPI, the DPU is unaffected due to the recent acquisitions and investments in NetCo Bonds and Preference Shares. From the presentation, a 10% increase in electricity costs would have an approximately 3% impact on pro forma DPU of  FY 21. As for the dispute at KDC SGP 1, the amount being disputed is around S$ 14.8 mil for 4 years, which might impact around 2% of pro forma DPU of FY21.
