+ Co-living riding on surge in rental rates and capacity. Co-living revenue jumped 38% YoY from higher rental rates and a 25% rise in room capacity in FY22e. New capacity additions were 320 Balestier Road, 75 Beach Road, 115 Geylang Road and a JV properties at 40 and 42 Amber Road and 471 Balestier Road. Fair value gains caused a spike in PBT for co-living.
– Facilities management dragged down by dormitory. Facilities management earnings dropped 37% YoY in 2H22 to S$4.4mn. The decline was due to the exit of the dormitory business in mid-2022. The drag from dorm earnings will persist into 1H23.
– Rise in net debt from investment properties. Net debt has risen from S$63mn to S$107mn in FY22. The increase in net debt was due to S$53mn invested in investment properties. We expect stability in FY23e cash-flows, as the focus will be on launching and raising occupancy levels of Mount Elizabeth Coliwoo. Bulk of the debt is on fixed rates for the next two years.
