Despite a decline in gross revenue, NPI improved in the current quarter compared to the previous one. Additionally, there is no debt refinancing requirement in 2023, and the fixed-rate debt proportion of 80.2% is slightly higher than the median level for SREITs. Although the DPU has remained flat since the IPO, the DPU from operation has been steadily improving. Overall, its performance and fundamentals remain resilient.
