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, food and cold storage, aerospace, healthcare, automotive and materials, engineering and construction.


High Occupancy in Underlying Portfolio

Cache enjoys a high committed portfolio occupancy of 97.2% as at 31 March 2017. This compares favorably with the Singapore industrial average occupancy rate of approximately 89.7% (1) for warehouses.

With some of the best-in-class warehouse properties and its proactive marketing strategy, Cache continues to draw robust demand for logistics space from 3PLs and other logistics operators.

Greater Balance Between Master Leases and Multi-Tenancies

Over time, Cache achieved a more balanced mix of master-leased and multi-tenanted properties. Master-leased properties provide portfolio stability with their typically longer lease periods while multi-tenanted properties enable Cache the ability to ride on potential rental upsides during a buoyant rental market due to typically shorter lease periods.

The current master lease agreements in Singapore are structured with predominantly triple-net rental and built-in rental escalation of between 1% and 2% per annum over the lease term. For the Australian assets, the master lease arrangements come with built-in annual rental escalations of between 3% and 4%, or tied to the local Consumer Price Index, whichever is higher.

As at 31 March 2017, multi-tenanted properties contributed 45% of Gross Rental Income while single-tenanted properties contributed to the balance 55%.

Minimal Renewal Risk from Long WALE

The Weighted Average Lease to Expiry (WALE) by net lettable area of the portfolio is 3.6 years (2). Cache's portfolio enjoys a high degree of predictability in its cashflow and earnings stability as about half of all leases are committed till 2020 and beyond.

Additional Confidence through Security Deposits

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