Posted On: 2020-05-19 17:32:15

Embassy Office Parks REIT (NSE: EMBASSY / BSE: 542602) ('Embassy REIT'), India's first listed REIT and the largest in Asia by area, reported results today for the fourth quarter and full year ended March 31, 2020.

The Board of Directors of Embassy Office Parks Management Services Private Limited ('EOPMSPL'), Manager to Embassy REIT, at its Board Meeting held earlier today, declared a distribution of Rs. 5,317 million or Rs. 6.89 per unit for 4Q FY2020. The cumulative distribution for FY2020 totals Rs. 18,821 million or Rs. 24.39 per unit. The record date for the 4Q FY2020 distribution is May 28, 2020 and the distribution will be paid on or before June 3, 2020.

Michael Holland, Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are very pleased with our strong business performance in fiscal 2019-20. Since Embassy REIT listed in April 2019, we have delivered a total return of c.25%. Our fourth quarter income and distribution payout once again illustrate the stability and resilience of Embassy REIT delivering cash flows that are backed by the covenants of our 160+ largely multinational occupier base.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an uncertain near-term outlook for many businesses worldwide, we are uniquely positioned to weather this pandemic-induced storm with our best-in-class office portfolio and strong balance sheet. While demand is likely to moderate considerably through 2020, we believe that in this environment, Grade-A supply will reduce considerably over the medium term, consolidation in the office market will continue and high-quality institutional landlords, such as Embassy REIT, will gain market share."

Financial Highlights for the Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year

- Strong balance sheet with ample liquidity and low leverage of c.15% Net Debt to TEV as of March 31, 2020, existing cash and undrawn committed facilities totals Rs. 13.5 billion and only c.1.3% of total debt matures in the next two years
