STRATEGY

 

Maximising Operational Performance

The Manager actively manages OUE C-REIT’s property portfolio and strives to maintain high occupancy levels and optimise rental growth, so as to achieve sustainable revenue and net property income. The Manager is focused on building strong and long-lasting relationships with tenants to better cater to their space requirements and optimise tenant retention.

The Manager also strives to improve operational and cost efficiency to ensure optimal building performance without compromising on the safety or comfort of tenants. To support and enhance organic growth, the Manager will also seek property enhancement opportunities where feasible.


Growth Through Quality Acquisitions

The Manager aims to pursue investment opportunities in the financial and business hubs of key gateway cities with strong real estate fundamentals and growth potential, to provide attractive cash flows and yields to improve future income and capital growth to Unitholders.

OUE C-REIT’s Right Of First Refusal (“ROFR”) over its Sponsor’s income-producing commercial properties provides a strong and visible pipeline enhances its growth profile significantly. In addition to sourcing third-party acquisitions on its own, the Manager also leverages on its Sponsor’s experience and network of contacts to source potentially yield-accretive acquisitions.


Pro-active Capital and Risk Management

The Manager adopts a prudent capital management strategy and strives to maintain a strong balance sheet. By employing an appropriate combination of debt and equity, the Manager seeks to optimise OUE C-REIT’s capital structure to deliver regular and stable distributions to Unitholders.

Key objectives of its capital management strategy include optimising the cost of debt financing and manage potential refinancing or repayment risks, as well as ensuring OUE C-REIT has access to diversified funding sources. Appropriate hedging strategies to manage interest rate volatility and foreign exchange exposure are also adopted.
