November 11, 2021 – Frasers Logistics & Commercial Trust announced that tis distribution per unit (DPU) for the first half of the financial year 2021 ended September 30 hit 3.88 Singapore cents, up 6.3% from the 3.65 Singapore cents in the same period last year.
FLCT recorded a revenue of S$237.6 million (US$1755.38 million) and Adjusted Net Property Income of S$181.3 million (US$133.82 million) for H2 2021, marking an increase of 11.4% and 12.3% respectively, from S$213.3 million (US$157.44 million) and S$161.4 million (US$119 million) in the previous corresponding financial period.
