Strong and Diverse Demand by Underlying End-Users

Cache's portfolio enjoys a high underlying occupancy by end-users, majority of which are multinational corporations. The end-users are also diversified by trade sectors such as industrial and commercial goods, commodities and chemical sectors, food and cold storage, aerospace, healthcare, courier services and hospitality.


High Occupancy in Underlying Portfolio

Cache enjoys a high occupancy of 97.9% as at 31 December 2014. This compares favorably with the Singapore industrial average occupancy rate of approximately 91.8%2 for warehouses.

Stability of Cash Flows from Long Term, Triple Net Master Leases

11 properties are on master lease agreements. The triple net ("NNN") master lease agreements provide for long lease tenures ranging from two to 10 years with locked-in annual rental escalations, providing Cache with a stable income stream. Multi-tenancy properties, on the other hand, provide potential positive rental reversions, which contribute to organic income growth within the portfolio.

Minimal Renewal Risk from Long WALE

The Weighted Average Lease to Expiry (WALE) by gross floor area of the portfolio is 4.1 years3. This provides a high degree of predictability in cash flow and stability in earnings for the portfolio.

Additional Confidence through Security Deposits

Security deposits underpinning the rental obligation average 3 to 12 months. This provides additional confidence in our cashflow.

Built-in Rental Escalations contributing to Organic Growth

The master lease agreements for the 11 properties are structured with built-in rental escalation of 1.25% to 2.50% per annum over the respective lease term. This provides organic growth and enhances predictability of cash flow for the portfolio.

Long Leasehold for Expiry of Underlying Land Lease

The weighted average unexpired lease term for the underlying leasehold land is 30.6 years.
