Performance has declined as compared to the previous half-year due to lower income arising from lower exchange rates against SGD, higher borrowing costs, and reduced income support and divestment proceeds. Only 3.9% of debts will expire by 2H FY23 and the proportion of fixed-rate debt is at 76.2%, close to the SREITs median level. Although the gearing ratio is low, it is unclear if any acquisitions will be pursued in the near future to enhance the DPU back to the previous year's levels.
