Ketut Budi Wijaya, LPKR President Director was quoted as saying, “I am delighted to report that SHYG has been fully operational since July 2017 and is now back on track to be injected into the REITs. The completion of these two Yogya property acquisitions by end of 2017 will contribute nicely to LPKR’s revenues and profits in FY2017.”
This property, which is located at Jalan Laksda Adi Sucipto No. 32 – 34, Yogyakarta, is comprised of a a 10-storey building (including one basement and one mezzanine level) was originally built in 2005, built on land with a total land area of 13,715 sqm, as specified in its Right-to-Build Certificate. It has a shared multi-storey vehicle parking area on the upper levels totalling 752 cars and 875 motorcycle lots, and a helipad on the roof. SHYG has a GFA of 12,474 sqm with a maximum capacity of 220 beds and commenced operations under the “Siloam Hospitals” brand in July 2017 with Centres of Excellence for Neuroscience and Cardiology. Physical construction and redevelopment works for SHYG were completed in 2015. LPJ has a GFA of 66,098 sqm (comprising 35,965 sqm for mall and 30,133 sqm for the parking area) with a diverse range of tenants including a cinema, food retailers and a hypermarket. LPJ underwent major refurbishment from 2013 to 2015 and recommenced operations in June 2015.
Important to note, on the rating front we are pleased to announce that on November 30, Fitch Rating has affirmed LPKR’s credit rating to BB- with stable outlook. The affirmations reflect LPKR's improved performance, with presales rising to IDR5.4 trillion in 9M17 from a trough of IDR1.2 trillion in FY2016. LPKR's ratings are supported by continued and healthy recurring cash flow from its hospitals, malls, hotels and property management businesses, which generate recurring EBITDAR of more than 1.2x of consolidated interest costs and operating lease rent. This mitigates financial risk during a slowdown in property sales. LPKR has strong capital market access given its ability to inject mature properties into the Singapore REITs that it sponsors - a unique financing avenue available to the company over its rating peers.
