Key Indicators

Performance Highlight
Gross revenue has improved slightly YoY mainly contributed by new leases and rental escalations as well as revenue from Academy Sports + Outdoors store at St. Lucie West which commenced operation in November 2023. Despite that, NPI has declined slightly probably due to higher property expenses. Distributable income has declined significantly, as a result of higher interest rates and management fees being paid entirely in cash."

Author's Opinion

Compared to the previous quarter, there has been an increase in both gross revenue and NPI mainly due to the contribution from the new Academy Sports store at St. Lucie West. Despite the improvement, distributable income has declined due to higher interest expenses. Regarding debt, it is worth noting that there is no debt maturing within this year.
