(1) Excluding the one-off capital distribution of approximately $1.7 million (equivalent to 0.15 cents per Unit) paid to the Unitholders, 9M 2017's adjusted DPU would be 5.22 cents. This would be higher than 9M 2016's adjusted DPU of 5.01 cents after adjusting for the impact of the pro-rata Preferential Offering in November 2016 which lowered DPU by approximately 0.36 cents, and a one-off net property tax refund recorded in 3Q 2016 which increased DPU by approximately 0.18 cents.
(2) 9M 2017's distributable income included a one-off capital distribution of approximately $1.7 million arising from the later completion of Keppel DC Singapore 3 on 20 January 2017 and where the vendor had agreed that all the rights and obligations shall pass to the REIT as if completion had occurred on 1 December 2016. The distributable income also includes Keppel DC Singapore 3's Capex Reserves.
