CapitaMall Trust announced its 3Q2017 financial results today. I am pleased that CapitaMall Trust manage to maintain its Distribution Per Unit of 2.78 cents which is the same as 3Q2016.

Almost every retail REIT listed on the Singapore Exchange is facing the economic headwinds and suffering from the impact of the growing popularity of online shopping. The fact that CapitaMall Trust is able to almost maintain its DPU was a pleasant surprise for me. Read More

CapitaMall Trust announces its 4Q 2016 or full year 2016 results on Friday, 20th January 2017.  The financial results are within my expectation.

Here is a quick summary of the 4Q2016 results compared with 4Q2015. Gross revenue fell 6.1% and Net Property Income (“NPI”) fell by 7.6%. Distribution Per Unit (“DPU”) remains flat at 2.88 cents. Read More
