The performance has improved as compared to the previous quarter. CICT has also exercised capital recycling aggressively recently in which it has divested 2 properties since Dec 2021 and acquired 4 properties in 1H 2022. Besides, some tenants for the 3 properties, namely Asia Square Tower 2, Six Battery Road and CapitaSpring are fitting out their offices, in which their rent payments would commence gradually from 4Q 2022. With these, the performance is expected to be improved moving forward.
