Sasseur REIT's 4Q FY23 Result Review

Basic Profile & Key Statistics

Key Indicators

Performance Highlight
EMA rental income (SGD) saw significant yearly improvement, primarily driven by higher variable components from increased sales. Distributable income and DPU have also improved, although to a lesser extent than the EMA rental increase, mainly due to higher tax expenses.

Sales has increased for both YoY and QoQ.

Asset Enhancement Initiatives
AEI for Hefei Outlet has been completed, and the new supermarket opened in January.

The second entrance work for Bishan Outlet was completed ahead of schedule in December 2023.

Related Parties Shareholding
The REIT sponsor, REIT manager, and directors of the REIT manager hold a relatively high proportion of shareholding.

Lease Profile

All income is received in RMB. WALE is short with concentrated lease expiry. Additionally, the weighted average land lease expiry is also short.

Debt Profile
The debt profile presents a mixed picture. On the positive side, there is a low gearing ratio, high adjusted interest coverage ratio, and a relatively high proportion of fixed-rate debt. However, the cost of debt is high, and debt maturity is concentrated. Additionally, the proportion of unsecured debt is low.

Diversification Profile

The portfolio features diversified tenants, but income contributions from properties are concentrated.

Author's Opinion

As compared to the previous quarter, income and distributable income has improved. However, DPU is lower due to S$ 3.05 mil retained amount in 4Q vs no amount retained in 3Q. For debt, there is no refinancing requirement until March 2025.
