Cache Logistics Trust reported a distribution per unit (DPU) of 5.588 cents – 1.2 per cent higher than its own forecast.
According to its financial statement for the period from April 12 – when it started operations – to December 31, net property income and gross revenue stood at $41.4 million and $42.4 million respectively.
The trust operates on a master lease structure, which aims to provide a high degree of predictability in cash flow and stability in earnings for the portfolio.
Going forward, the trust is confident of delivering its targeted DPU for the 2011 financial year and expects the demand for logistics properties in Singapore to remain robust.
