Attended First REIT AGM on 20 May via webcast.
This is also my first AGM via webcast.
1) Not much additional information was been shared
The AGM lasted only around 37 mins.
Majority of the information shared can be found in one of their previous presentation slide.
The good thing is shareholders' questions are been consolidated into PDF and sent out on 19 May (1 day before the AGM).
2) "We are doing GOOD"
The key message I got from Mr Victor Tan (CEO) during the AGM session is 'We are doing Good'.
To me, Good = Result is better than last year or at least maintain the same.
Else, for their case, I feel he should say "We need some improvement".
The only GOOD is their DPU, which maintain at 8.6cents.
I shall let the below AGM slides to do some justification.
3) Top key concern of shareholder
One of the top key concern of shareholders is the renewal of 5 properties that is going to expire late 2021.
This 5 properties represent 22% of the lease profile.
There are a few rumors like the renewal based rental will be peg to IDR instead of SGD and etc.
Hoping to get more clarity in the AGM but unfortunately, the reply from CEO is they are still engaging the discussion with stakeholders and the discussion is currently on hold due to COVID.
There is definitely risk involved for First REIT shareholders.
But giving today price at $0.82, most of the risk have been priced in.
Shareholders will need to ensure they have sufficient cash on hand if First REIT were to have rights to onboard more properties from both their parents company.
