1HFY24 earnings above expectations; higher-than-expected co-living margins.

  • - Read this at SGinvestors.io -
  • Robust revenue growth was driven by co-living revenue, which almost doubled y-o-y to S$20m. Co-living PBT margins also jumped 17ppt y-o-y to 45%, on the back of high occupancy rates and stable rental rates. This has contributed to the better-than-expected earnings.

Co-living was the main revenue growth driver

  • full-period contributions from existing co-living spaces like 2 Mount Elizabeth Link and Lavender Collection, and
  • higher rental rates from other co-living spaces.
  • The number of keys surged 28% y-o-y to 2,151, while overall occupancy rate remained high at 92% (FY23: 95%) from strategic positioning of its properties.
  • Facilities management revenue rose 14% y-o-y on more facilities management services and a greater number of carparks secured in 4QFY23, while energy business revenue tripled y-o-y from more solar panel projects. These were offset by lower industrial (-3% y-o-y) and commercial (- 5% y-o-y) property revenues, due to the expiry of three master leases in FY23.

Interim dividend proposed.
