This is the first business update for DCR, and the result is in line with the forecast figure. The recent share price has declined after the announcement of its fifth-largest customer which contributed 7.1% of its income has filed for bankruptcy protection. Manager expected to be able to backfill the space given tight market conditions in Toronto. The sponsor has agreed to guarantee the cash flow to Digital Core REIT in the event of a near-term cash flow shortfall due to the customer bankruptcy. Given all these, this event is not expected to have an impact on DPU.
