Mapletree Logistics Trust's 4Q FY23/24 Result Review

Basic Profile & Key Statistics

Key Indicators

Performance Highlight
Gross revenue, NPI and amount distributable to unitholders remain similar YoY. However, it's worth noting that the slight increase in distributable income is attributed to the distribution of divestment gain amounting to S$12 million this year, compared to S$2.86 million last year. DPU on the other hand, declined YoY due to an enlarged unitholder base.

Rental Reversion 
Rental reversion for 4Q FY23/24 is at 2.9%. 

In February, MLT completed the acquisition of Farrukhnagar in Delhi. Additionally, MLT announced the proposed acquisition of one property in Malaysia and two properties in Vietnam during the same month.


MLT divested 73 Tuas South Avenue 1 in February. Additionally, two properties in Malaysia are expected to complete divestment by 1H FY24/25.

Construction work for the 51 Benoi Road redevelopment is expected to be completed by 1H 2025.

Author's Opinion

Compared to the previous quarter, performance has declined slightly, mainly attributed to higher property expenses, higher borrowing costs, absence of revenue from divested properties and the depreciation of other currencies against SGD. Regarding debt, only 5% requires refinancing in the next 12 months.
