Starhill REIT records half-year revenue of RM48 million and distributable income of RM35 million

   

Kuala Lumpur, 16 January 2007

Starhill Real Estate Investment Trust (Starhill REIT) today announced revenue of RM47.94 million for the six months ended 31 December 2006 and income after taxation of RM35.00 million for the same period, outperforming its IPO projections on an annualised basis by approximately 2.3%.

A distribution of 3.365 sen per unit, representing approximately 100% of Starhill REITís income after taxation for the six-month period ended 31 December 2006, was also recommended by the Board of Directors of Pintar Projek Sdn Bhd, the manager of the Trust. The distribution is subject to the approval of Mayban Trustees Berhad, the trustee for Starhill REIT.

Based on Starhill REITís 5-day volume weighted average price of RM0.83, the proposed distribution represents an annualised yield of 8.11%.

Commenting on the half-year results, Tan Sri Datoí (Dr) Francis Yeoh Sock Ping, Chief Executive Officer of Pintar Projek Sdn Bhd, said, ďThe Trustís properties continued to perform robustly for the first 6 months of the 2007 financial year, demonstrating the solid fundamentals and quality of these assets. The addition of The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur, is the Trustís next avenue of value creation for our unitholders and which, coupled with ongoing prudent financial management and asset development, is expected to ensure that Starhill REIT continues to deliver strong returns to our unitholdersĒ.

As at 31 December 2006, Starhill Gallery and Lot 10 had occupancy rates of 96.4% and 99.1%, respectively, exceeding estimated average occupancy rates of shopping centres in Kuala Lumpur of 85.1% for the 2nd quarter of 2006 and 84.7% for the 3rd quarter.

On 12 December 2006, Starhill REIT announced a proposal to acquire part of The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur, for a purchase consideration of RM125 million to be satisfied by the issuance of 138,888,889 new units at an issue price of RM0.90 per unit. The proposal is pending the receipt of approvals from the Securities Commission and unitholders. Comprising luxury serviced apartments in a 38-storey tower block, this proposed acquisition presents a timely growth opportunity for Starhill REIT to increase its exposure to key urban areas in Kuala Lumpur, and is expected to further diversify and enhance Starhill REITís asset base within the high-end, luxury property segment
