The performance is similar to the previous quarter. The occupancy has improved and rental reversion remains healthy, however, the distributable income could still be offset by higher interest expense, in which the all-in interest rate has increased from 1.72% to 2.28%. Moving forward, management expects to maintain the high occupancy level and would focus on asset recycling.
