Relative Valuation

  • Dividend Yield - Average fort 1y; Above +1SD for 3y & 5y
  • P/NAV - Average for 1y & 5y; Below -1SD for 3y

Author's Opinion

Although gross revenue and NPI remain similar to the previous half-year, the DPU has declined due to a combination of increased tax expenses and higher retention amounts. Regarding debt, the next refinancing requirement is by September, accounting for approximately 9% of the debt. 

SGREIT has renewed its lease with Toshin ahead of its expiry in June 2025, which contributes more than 20% of the portfolio's gross rent. The initial lease term spans 12 years with options for renewal, commencing on 8 June 2025.
