AIMS AMP Capital Industrial REIT posted an 8.2 percent gain in net property income (NPI) for the second quarter ended 30 September, driven by a maiden rental contribution from the newly completed properties at 103 Defu Lane 10 and Phase 2E of 20 Gul Way.

IndoFood Agri Resources saw a 17.1 percent gain in revenue to IDR3.6 trillion for the third quarter ended 30 September, mainly attributable to higher sales volume and commodity prices for palm products.

Parkway Life Real Estate Investment Trust’s NPI gained 8.6 percent to $23.7 million for the third quarter ended 30 September, mainly due to revenue contribution from the properties acquired in 2H13 and 1Q14, and higher rent from existing properties, partially offset by the depreciation of the Japanese Yen.
