Author's Opinion

Gross revenue and NPI have declined as compared to the previous quarter. Nonetheless, distributable income remains similar to the previous quarter. As widely known, the manager has announced a recapitalization plan and suspended distribution through 2H 2025. The aim is to maintain leverage and interest coverage ratio within MAS requirements and bank debt covenants. KORE expects to resume distribution in FY2026.
