Performance has improved as compared to the previous quarter. With the opening of Vibe Hotel Singapore Orchard coupled with the year-end festive season, FEHT 4Q performance is expected to be a better one. FEHT would distribute the divestment gain from Central Square for approximately $8 million per year which lasts over the next 3 years. For FY22, there is a remaining of $4.2 million which would be distributed for the 2H period.
