  • All-in cost of debt also inched downwards by 5bps to 1.27% across the same period, with interest coverage ratio at a healthy 11.3x.
  • We note that Parkway Life REIT has secured long-term facilities to term out 100% and ~30% of long-term debts originally falling due in 2024 and 20245, respectively, such that the REIT no longer has any long-term debt refinancing needs until Mar 2025.
  • Management has also entered into several interest rate swaps, which is expected to increase its proportion of fixed rate borrowings from 74% as at 30 Sep 2023 to a very high 90% level by 31 Mar 2024.

We continue to like Parkway Life REIT for its defensive, stable portfolio and steady track record of DPU growth
