Strong rental reversions lift Fortune Reit's Q1 performance


Metro Town, a a suburban retail property in Hong Kong manged by Forune Reit. 

FORTUNE Reit put in a sterling showing in the first quarter, as asset performance remained solid.

Income available for distribution climbed 12.8 per cent to HK$218.7 million (S$37.6 million), compared with the same period last year.

Net property income rose 12.4 per cent to HK$325 million, compared with a year earlier.

Distribution per unit was 11.63 Hong Kong cents, up from 10.38 Hong Kong cents a year earlier.

The Reit's manager, ARA Asset Management (Fortune), said in a statement yesterday that the exceptional financial performance was mainly because of strong rental reversions across the portfolio and additional income contributions from Laguna Plaza, which was acquired in January.

Rental reversion for renewals stood at 18.4 per cent, with portfolio rent from tenants rising further to HK$37 per sq ft at the end of the first quarter.

Portfolio occupancy also remained strong at 98.1 per cent, as of March 31. On Feb 11, the Reit agreed to sell one of its malls in Hong Kong, Nob Hill Square, for HK$648 million.

This move is equivalent to a 2.9 per cent net property yield and is Fortune Reit's first asset divestment in its 11-year operating history.

The sale price represents a 48 per cent premium over valuation and has resulted in a disposal gain of about HK$215 million.

The disposal was completed on April 2 and net proceeds were used for loan repayment.

The divestment places the Reit in a better position to pursue growth opportunities.

The Reit is currently undertaking an $80 million asset enhancement initiative at Belvedere Square in Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong.

The targeted return on investment for the project is 15 per cent. Fortune Reit units closed six Hong Kong cents lower at HK$7.94 on Friday.
