YTD FY20 Gross Revenue and NPI rose 1.1% and 2.2% to S$87.3 million and S$66.8 million respectively as compared to YTD FY19 mainly due to the commencement of new leases at certain properties and higher revenue contribution across the portfolio. DPU was however lower by 8.8% in YTD FY20 as compared to YTD FY19 due to capital and one-off distributions. On a like-for-like basis, excluding capital and one-off distributions, DPU would have been 7.0% higher instead.
