Summary of Growth Strategy
NRT aims to maximize unitholder value through its characteristic management system "trinity management."
External Growth Strategy
Without veering from the investment policies to which we have held fast since the listing, we will use a disciplined external growth strategy to drive the maximization of unitholder value.
|(Note)||NOI yield refers to the NOI yield based on NIPPON REIT's cash flow projection at the time of acquisition against the acquisition price. The same applies hereafter.|
Internal Growth Strategy
Stabilization and improvement of occupancy rate
As a result of our flexible and proactive leasing activities, as well as the enhanced tenant satisfaction and building competitiveness stemming from our engineering management, the occupancy rate as of the end of the 9th period reached the highest ever. We will continue to target further stabilization and improvement of occupancy rates, at the same time, we will work to improve cash flow by reducing vacancy and free rent periods.
Activities to Enhance Portfolio Profitability
In the fiscal period under review, out of floor space of 40,556 square meters (representing 98 tenants), we managed to increase rents for an area of 12,532 square meters (representing 31 tenants), or 30.9% of the total. In addition, the overall rent increase(Note) of 2.3% was significantly greater than the target of 1%, and reached the highest level ever. Moreover, for the 10th and 11th fiscal periods, we have upwardly revised our target from the previous 1% to 1.5%, and will seek to further raise the floor for distributions per unit going forward.
(Note) Overall rent increase refers to the ratio of total rent for all end-tenants after rent renewal, to the total rent before renewal, for office properties. The same applies hereafter.
Engineering Management to Maintain and Improve Portfolio Value
We are working to improve tenant satisfaction as well as to maintain and enhance profitability and competitiveness of the portfolio. As a result of the effective implementation of Engineering Management, we expect to attribute to approximately \150 million per year increase in NOI over the four periods starting from the 7th period. We aim to further increase asset value by pursuing economic efficiencies such as reducing costs of works.
Track record in raising NOI through engineering management(Note)
|(Note)||Actual results and forecast values for improvements to NOI are calculated by the asset management corporation based on the contracts, quotes and proposals, and do not constitute any kind of warranty with regard to the operations results of the Investment Corporation.|
