News about First REIT

Lippo Karawaci Wants Lease Renegociation With First REIT

While it sounds counter-intuitive, the Covid-19 pandemic has been hurting the health care sector as many non-pandemic related procedures and treatments have been delayed or outright cancelled. The Lippo Karawaci group (LPKR) has announced its desire to renegociate its leases with First REIT over its Siloam hospitals:

Under the current lease structure, the healthcare real estate investment trust (Reit) is guaranteed a certain rent level, which means any decline in Siloam's revenue increases the "significant" rental support that First Reit will receive, LPKR said.

On Monday afternoon, the Reit manager clarified that it has not been approached by LPKR regarding these matters.

News about Ascott Residence Trust

Ascott REIT Will Not Call It's Perpetual Bond

Ascott REIT has announced it will not call it's perpetual bond on 30 June 2020, its first call date. While the call is entirely optional, REITs (and banks) traditionally call their perpetual bonds on their first call date.

The hospitality trust, which deals with the sharp fall in business due to the Covid-19 pandemic, would face a difficult market if it tried to refinance the issue. On the other hand, the bond which bears a 4.68% interest rate, will reset to 2.5% plus Swap Rate on the call date, which would save the trust some interest payments.

News about Eagle Hospitality Trust

Eagle Hospitality Will Pay for Sponsor's Liabilities Using Distribution Funds

In order to preserve the condition and value of its properties, Eagle Hospitality Trust (EHT) is having to use the funds originally meant for distribution to unit holders:

This is in light of the "continuing failure" by the trust sponsor and master lessee Urban Commons to discharge its obligations under the Master Lease Agreements (MLAs), EHT said in a filing to the Singapore Exchange on Wednesday night (May 27).

EHT urgently needs to protect and safeguard the asset value of its portfolio, it said. "There is currently no alternative source of monies to fund the portfolio preservation expenses other than the monies originally intended to fund the distribution and the remaining security deposits."

News about Hektar REIT

Hektar Seeks Private Placement

Facing the disruption of the Covid-19 pandemic, Malaysian retail trust Hektar REIT is seeking the approval to issue up to 5% more units through a private placement:

The Proposed Private Placement will mainly allow Hektar REIT to raise the necessary funds for working capital and capital work in progress to help to facilitate Hektar REIT's existing day-to-day operations as a whole by providing more flexibility in terms of cash flow management.

While reducing the gearing level, the operation would dilute NAV and yield for existing shareholders. Timeframe for completion is indicated to be the second half of 2020.

The trust also decided to defer dividend distribution for Q1 2020.
