Performance Highlight
Gross revenue and NPI improved yoy mainly due to contribution from French Portfolio and Parc Cugat which were acquired in 3Q 2021, and also due to step-up rents and CPI indexation.

The occupancy rate has decreased to 88.3%, primarily because Deutsche Telekom vacated the Darmstadt Campus at the end of November 2022. However, the manager has stated that they are currently in advanced discussions with a few potential tenants. Additionally, the IREIT has hedged all of its borrowing with interest rate swaps and caps, and there is no debt maturity until 2026, which helps to mitigate the impact of rising interest rates.

  1. Hello. Can I confirm if the price/NAV and Yield are correct? Price: 0.52. NAV: 0.54, Dividend: 1.28 & 1.41. Calculations look off.

    1. The price is in SGD, while NAV and DPU are in Euro. So when calculating p/nav and yield, i converted those figures to SGD first.
