FY 2016 RESULTS HIGHLIGHTS

- Revenue and distributable cash flows(1) for FY 2016 were S$581.1 million and S$149.5 million respectively. Corresponding amounts for FY 2015 were S$427.9 million and S$90.7 million respectively. These were mainly due to:
(i) 12 months of results from KMC versus 6 months in FY 2015, as its acquisition was completed on 30 June 2015;
(ii) Crystal Assets contributed 12 months of results in FY 2016 versus 7.5 months in FY 2015, as its acquisition was completed on 18 May 2015;
(iii) The other assets of the Group reported 12 months of results in FY 2016 versus 9 months in FY 2015, due to the change in financial year end last year.
- Net asset value per unit as at 31 December 2016 decreased to 32.5 Singapore cents from 35.3 Singapore cents as at 31 December 2015 primarily attributable to the marked-to-market movement of derivative instruments and distributions to Unitholders.
- Gearing(2) as at 31 December 2016 was 37% compared to 35% as at 31 December 2015 as the Trust drew down loans to repay one of its subsidiaries and to fund the Senoko boiler upgrade.
