Do you know what is Green Shoe Option?

Green Shoe

Recently, Lippo Malls Indonesia Retail Trust (LMIR Trust) announced that they have obtained up to S$350 Million term loan facilities with a Green Shoe option of up to S$70 million. The proceeds will be used to fund acquisitions and refinance existing debt.

The term “Green Shoe Option” caught my eye. Initially, I thought it was the name of a new mall Lippo is planning to acquire, however upon further reading into the announcement, it doesn’t seem so. Read More

Summary of REITs Financial Results in 1Q2016

Most or all of the REITs in my portfolio have completed announcing their 1Q2016 results. There are some hits and some misses. As shown in the table I summarized below, Distribution Per Unit (“DPU”) increases for 6 out of 11 REITS I am holding while DPU fell for the other 5.

DPU fell for those REITs that focuses on a single industry sector such as industrial, retail or office. REITs like Suntec REIT which has a combination of office and retail survived the economy downturn. Mapletree Commercial Trust did fairly well too as it has a combination of office and retail (Vivocity).

Those with overseas assets did well too. Frasers Commercial Trust has both Singapore and Australian properties. Lippo Malls Indonesia Retail Trust did well as its malls are in Indonesia.

Having said so much, I just want to highlight the importance of diversification of portfolio.
