MCT currently makes up 10.23% of my stock portfolio. How did MCT fare and is DPU still depressed? Let us take a look below
MCT managed to achieve higher 1H FY21/22 gross revenue and net property income (“NPI”) mainly due to lower rental rebates and compensation from a lease pre-termination at mTower.
A distribution of 4.39 Singapore cents was declared and will be paid on 30th November 2021.

I will like to end this post with the below slide that illustrate the measures imposed by the government to curb the spread of COVID-19 and how it impact shopper traffic and tenant sales.
As you can see, shopper traffic and tenant sales are slowly picking up as Singapore moves towards COVID-19 stabilisation.
Restrictions cannot be forever and I am sure the day COVID-19 is controlled and measures lifted, this will be the catalyst for Mapletree Commercial Trust to fast speed forward.
