Keppel DC REIT - CGS-CIMB Research 2022-04-19: A Minor Near-Term Hiccup

Keppel DC REIT - A Minor Near-Term Hiccup

  • Keppel DC REIT (SGX:AJBU)’s 1QFY22 revenue declined 0.9% y-o-y to S$66.1m while NPI dropped 1.4% y-o-y to S$60.1m as a result of provisions made for a client payment under dispute at KDC SGP 1, weaker Euro against S$ and higher electricity costs which offset the effects of recent acquisitions. Distributable income, however, increased 5.9% y-o-y to S$44.5m due to investment in debt securities.
  • Keppel DC REIT’s 1QFY22 DPU of S$0.02466 came in below at 23% of our FY22F forecast.
  • We reduce our FY22-23F DPU forecast for Keppel DC REIT by 1-5% after factoring in higher electricity cost, litigation provision and updating FY21 numbers.
  • Reiterate ADD call on Keppel DC REIT. We expect the higher electricity cost to weigh on its DPU in the near-term, but demand remains strong which underpins its longer-term income stability.
