Mainboard-listed Ascott Residence Trust (ART) has posted a first quarter distributable income of S$14.2 million, up 76 per cent compared to the same period a year ago.
ART said it benefited from higher demand for accommodation from business travellers in the region.
And going forward, it expects to see stable growth as it maintains a balance of properties in both developed and emerging markets in the Pan-Asian region.
For the first quarter ended 31 March, distribution per unit is 2.33 cents, up from 1.59 cents in the same period a year ago. – CNA/vm
