Sunlight REIT Interim Results for the Six Months Ended 31 December 2018

CHINA - Media OutReach - 14 February 2019 - Henderson Sunlight Asset Management Limited (the "Manager") is pleased to announce the interim results of Sunlight REIT for the six months ended 31 December 2018 (the "Reporting Period").

Sunlight REIT continued to make healthy progress during the Reporting Period, as revenue and net property income ("NPI") registered 6.4% and 9.2% year-on-year ("YoY") growth to HK$424.9 million and HK$338.7 million respectively. Improvement in passing rent and initial contribution from The Harvest (formerly Fung Shun Commercial Building) were the main drivers behind this performance.

Distributable income rose 8.2% YoY to HK$231.6 million. The Board has resolved to declare an interim distribution per unit of HK 13.2 cents, representing a payout ratio of 93.9% and an increase of 4.8% YoY.

The portfolio of Sunlight REIT was appraised at HK$19,452.5 million at 31 December 2018, up 3.7% from 30 June 2018. Meanwhile, its net assets grew 4.2% to HK$15,476.3 million, which translates to a net asset value of HK$9.40 per unit.

Operating Highlights
The overall occupancy of Sunlight REIT's portfolio was96.7% at 31 December 2018 (30 June 2018: 98.2%).  Office occupancy was 95.7% (30 June 2018: 97.8%), a slight decline mainly attributable to the higher vacancies recorded at Bonham Trade Centre in preparation for the upcoming asset enhancement, and at The Harvest upon expiry of the sale and lease back arrangement for the office portion with the previous owner. The retail portfolio maintained a satisfactory occupancy rate of 98.9% (30 June 2018: 99.2%). Passing rent of office and retail portfolio rose 2.7% and 2.0% from six months ago to HK$34.7 per sq. ft. and HK$75.4 per sq. ft. respectively.

Underpinned by an upsurge in office rents in decentralized areas and a decent rebound in visitor arrivals from China, Sunlight REIT achieved an overall rental reversion of 10.6% during the Reporting Period. In particular, the top three properties of Sunlight REIT, namely Sunlight Tower, Sheung Shui Centre Shopping Arcade and Metro City Phase I Property, recorded rental reversions of 12.8%, 10.1% and 13.0% respectively.

Mr. Wu Shiu Kee, Keith, Chief Executive Officer of the Manager, said, "Looking ahead, while market volatility will remain a notable feature in 2019, the Manager remains positive to the medium-term prospects of Sunlight REIT which is poised to benefit from the favourable rental reversionary trend and the ongoing asset enhancement initiatives. Given its strong financial war chest, Sunlight REIT is also well positioned to conduct unit buy-backs, as well as to capitalize on any attractive acquisition opportunities which may arise."
