The performance has shown improvement compared to the previous quarter and the occupancy rate has steadily increased from its low point of 93.6% in 1Q 2022 to its current level of 96.2%. In terms of debt, only 4% needs refinancing this year, with the fixed rate being around the median level for SREITs. However, for the lease at Gallileo, Commerzbank A.G. has given notice to end the lease in January 2024. The manager expected the building to be non-income generating for at least 18 months, and Commerzbank A.G. is 1 of the top 10 tenants, contributing 1.8% of gross rent.
