AVIC International Maritime Holdings has entered into agreements to collectively acquire the entire stake in Shanghai Catic Industrial Co (SCIC), for Rmb207m (approximately $45m). The objective of the acquisition is to obtain and re-develop the estimated 32,110 sqm plot located in the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone owned by SCIC, which will enable the group to consolidate its business operations and to meet its need for office space in the long term. The firm has no intention to continue with SCIC’s business and upon completion of the redevelopment, subjected to the approvals of authorities, will sell part of the remaining space it does not require to recoup part of its costs.

Cambridge Industrial Trust registered a 16.7% jump in gross revenue to $27.5m in 1Q15, underpinned by extra contributions from additional properties acquired and completed ones. Despite net property income rising 11.9% to $21.2m, net income available for distribution grew a lesser 2.1% to $14.6m due to the absence of a gain from disposal of property that was recorded in 1Q14. Coupled with a lower distribution from capital and capital gains, distribution per unit (DPU) fell 2.1% to $0.01225.

CapitaCommercial Trust reported a 6.5% rise in 1Q15 revenue and a 6.4% increase in net property income to around $54m, on the back of positive rent reversions and higher occupancies that resulted in higher gross revenue. Distribution income to unitholders, as a result, rose 4.7% to $62.8m for 1Q15. DPU also rose some 4% to $0.0212 for the quarter.

CapitaMall Trust’s (CMT) 1Q15 revenue inched up 1.6% to $167.4m, attributable to the completion of the second phase of the asset enhancement initiative at Bugis Junction, while DPU grew at a stronger pace of 4.3% y-o-y to $0.0268. During the quarter, CMT managed to obtain positive rental reversions of 6.1%, while shopper traffic and tenants’ sales psf grew by 4.7% and 2.5% respectively.

KSH Holdings has been awarded a $33.2m contract by the National University of Singapore (NUS) to build a 3-storey University Sports Centre Building.

The contract win boosted the group’s order book to $420m and also marks the third project awarded to KSH by NUS.

Perennial Real Estate Holdings entered into a 50:50 joint venture (JV) with IJM Land to acquire and develop an approximately 1.4m sqf freehold waterfront site into a large-scale integrated mixed-use development in Gelugor town located on the Eastern coastline of Penang, Malaysia. The total development cost for the project is estimated to be over RM3b. The JV in Penang marks the group’s first foray into a new market which will augment its existing business in core markets of China and Singapore, which should help to diversify its investment portfolio to generate sustainable returns over the longer term.

Sembcorp Marine’s wholly owned subsidiary, Sembawang Shipyard, has secured a floating storage and offloading conversion contract worth $56m from, Teekay, for the Gina Krog Field in the North Sea. The vessel is expected to arrive at Sembawang Shipyard in Jun-15, with completion in 11 months.

The property is located in the city’s retail central business district core, with a retail centre of almost 620,000 sqf space, 3 office buildings occupying 98,000 sqf and 4 basement levels providing 467 carpark lots.
