  • DFI also reported US$33m underlying profit, below consensus and our expectation of US$55m on weaker than expected operating profits from Grocery Retail and Home Furnishing segments, offset by strength of Health & Beauty segment.

  • Also recall that DFI has put up its Jelita Shopping Centre for sale at a guided price of S$85m in Jun-23 (US$64m equivalent). We believe this sale could materialize in 2H24 (shopping center sales typically take around 1 year to finalize). Given the buoyant property market, we believe DFI will record a considerable profit upon sale and cash proceeds will likely go towards paring down its debt.

Declared interim dividend of US$0.03.
