Author's Opinion

As compared to the previous half year, gross revenue and NPI have improved slightly, but distributable has declined due to a combination of higher finance costs and more management fees being received in cash. Regarding debt, around 17.5% requires refinancing in 2024. Additionally, the first distribution rate reset of the S$300 million perpetual securities will be on 30 August 2024.
