CapitaRetail China Trust posted a 29.2 percent improvement in net property income to $32.3 million for the third quarter ended 30 September, underpinned by new contribution from CapitaMall Grand Canyon and rental growth from other multi-tenanted malls. Coupled with higher deferred taxation, income available for distribution to unitholders jumped 14.1 percent to $19.5 million. The trust declared a distribution per unit of $0.0235 for the quarter.

First Sponsor Group’s revenue fell 37.6 percent to $54.7 million for the three months ended 30 September, attributable to lower recognition of revenue from the sale of properties. However, stronger finance income and lower income tax expense helped cushioned the blow to the bottom line, which fell 21.4 percent to $14.9 million.

GMG Global saw a 24.7 percent decline in its top line to $180.8 million for the quarter ended 30 September, dragged down by a fall in the average selling price of natural rubber, despite higher tonnage sold. This also impacted its gross profit margin, which narrowed 3.3 percentage points to 7.7 percent. As a result, GMG sank into the red with a loss of $4.9 million.

Mapletree Commercial Trust recorded $52.1 million in net property income for the second quarter ended 30 September, up 8.8 percent, on the back of higher rental income and step-ups in existing leases for VivoCity and PSA Building. Coupled with a smaller increase in overall expenses, income available for distribution to unitholders grew 11 percent to $41.4 million. The trust declared a distribution of $0.0197 per unit for the quarter.

Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust’s net property income for the second quarter ended 30 September came in 9 percent higher at $55.1 million, driven by positive rental reversions at Festival Walk and Gateway Plaza while property operating expenses were reduced. Lower finance costs and performance fees further improved the trust’s performance as distributable income grew 11.9 percent to $43.5 million. Consequently, the trust declared a distribution per unit of $0.01606 for the quarter.
