Recommendation: Accumulate (Maintained); Last close: S$0.89

Analyst: Tara Wong; Target Price: S$ 0.94

– DPU in line with our expectations. NPI fell short of expectations mainly due to loss of
revenue from AEI at Xiaolan Metro Mall.

– Healthy rental reversions despite AEIs at its two largest malls, Shiqi and Xiaolan.

– Average debt term-to-maturity doubled to 1.6 years, with the extension of its initial first
tranche of debt done at a lower interest margin.

– Notwithstanding the effect of rental straight-lining, slower-than-expected growth at its
“growth malls” expected to pick up pace with more upside built into lease structure.

– Maintain ACCUMULATE with adjusted TP of S$0.94 (prev. S$0.95)
