Croesus Retail Trust posted a 48.8 percent gain in net property income (NPI) to JPY1.2 billion for the second quarter ended 31 December 2014, underpinned mainly by the contributions from three newly acquired properties, namely Luz Omori, Croesus Tachikawa and One’s Mall. Subsequently, income available for distribution was up 22.7 percent to JPY874.8 million. For the six months, NPI grew 42.9 percent to JPY2.3 billion while income available for distribution rose 15.3 percent to JPY1.7 billion (both figures were compared against prorated figures for 1H14).

Far East Hospitality Trust’s NPI sank 9.2 percent to $27.7 million for the fourth quarter ended 31 December 2014, amid softer hotel rates as a result of weaker corporate business and an increase in hotel room supply. Subsequently, income available for distribution fell 8.8 percent to $22.9 million. For the full year, NPI dipped 1.7 percent to $110 million and income available for distribution slid 3.3 percent to $91.5 million.

Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation booked a 23.9 percent growth in net interest income to $1.3 billion for the fourth quarter ended 31 December 2014, bolstered by asset growth and a 3 basis point improvement in net interest margin.

The group has declared a final dividend per share of $0.18.

Saizen Real Estate Investment Trust’s NPI stood flat at JPY686 million for the second quarter ended 31 December 2014, mainly as a result of a slight dip in average occupancy rate and lower rental reversions. A 24.6 percent decrease in finance costs was negated by lower unrealised foreign exchange gain as net profit was flattish at JPY457.3 million. For the six months, NPI dropped 2.1 percent to JPY1.4 billion and net profit gained 15.5 percent to JPY892.7 million which was helped by divestment gains on properties and fair value gains on financial derivatives.
