Key Indicators

Performance Highlight
Gross revenue and NPI improve slightly YoY. However, the amount available for distribution declined Yoy mainly due combination of higher borrowing costs and a higher amount of management fees elected in cash. This resulted in a DPU decline, despite this quarter having a release of retention that was withheld in 4QFY19/20/

Rental Reversion
For renewal leases, besides business park buildings, all achieved higher rental rates. However, for the new leases, hi-tech buildings and business park buildings are having lower rates while flatted factories and stack-up buildings achieved higher rates. The weighted average rental revision rate is 5.3%.

The acquisition of a data centre in Osaka is expected to be completed in 3Q 2023.

Compared to the previous quarter, gross revenue and NPI remained steady. DPU has shown improvement, primarily driven by higher interest income, reduced borrowing costs, and lower other trust expenses, despite a decrease in joint venture distribution. However, it's worth noting that upcoming DPU might be impacted since there won't be any balance of distribution from divestment gain and distribution withheld. Let's see whether manager would opt to receive more fees in units in the coming quarters.
