4.) Top 5 properties that generates the highest revenue (Decreasing order): Wisma Atria Property (35.2%), Ngee Ann City Property (32.2%), Starhill Gallery (9.3%), David Jones Building (6.8%), Lot 10 Property (5.6%)
5.) Weighted average lease expiry (WALE) profile: As at 30 June 2015, the weighted average lease term expiry (by NLA) of the Portfolio is 6.8 years.
6.) Debt maturity profile: Average debt maturity remained stable at 3.5 years as at 30 June 2015, the maturity profile le is better staggered with maturity being extended up to year 2023. With the recent series of refinancing in July 2015, there will be no significant debt refinancing requirement until 2018 and average debt maturity has been extended to approximately 4.1 years.
7.) Challenges: Wisma Atria’s occupancy has dropped to 96.8% from 100% a year ago. This is largely due to tenant mix reconfiguration and the renovation at Isetan since 2015.
8.) Strengths: We are anticipating 2-year DPU CAGR of 3.7% from FY15-17, driven primarily by contribution from Myer Centre Adelaide, which was acquired for A$288m in May 2015. This acquisition will boost contribution from Australia to 24% from 11%, further diversifying its earning profile, which is still concentrated in Singapore.
The upcoming rent review for Toshin lease at Ngee Ann City is a near-term catalyst which will have a significant positive impact on distributions as Toshin accounts for about 19% of top line in end-FY16. Toshin renewed the lease for another twelve years beginning June 2013.
